Need help choosing the right rechargeable batteries? We hope these little tips help you navigate the increasingly complicated world of rechargeable batteries.

The first thing you need to decide is what do you need your rechargeable batteries for? Standard Rechargeable Batteries with low to medium capacity are great for everyday items including cordless phones, they offer great value for money. High Capacity Rechargeable Batteries for those power crazy high drain items like digital cameras & MP3 players. Finally the latest type of Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries that come ready charged and have a lower self discharge rate than the other two options. Which means these new ready to use rechargeables stay charged for up to 12 months without use, however their capacity is lower than the high capacity range but usually higher than the standard range. The capacity, or amount of power in your battery is given a mAh rating, the higher this rating the longer the batteries last between recharges.
