The charger takes AA and AAA. Trouble is I don't use the camera enough so you can bet each time I want to use it I've got to charge the batteries before I can.

The only headphones I have don't need batteries they were cheap ones and just plug into the computers front jacks.
Joan, look into the Sanyo Eneloop batteries, they are what's called a LSD (far out) battery Low Self Discharge. They hold up to 75% of their charge after 3 years. And they can be recharged up to 1500 times. Basically, you charge them, and they are ready when you need them.

Great, glad I could help. I did some research about recargeable before I got mine. Regardless of their ability to retain a charge over time, they were always highly rated for their operation and recharge cycles. A Guy

Is it bad to keep a computer plugged in? Keeping it maxed out @ 100% I heard was bad.... Does it really matter? I go through the process of draining and charging, and I had my computer for 7 months.... In fact I am draining it now... So is it true? Does it really hurt the battery? :) Thanks

I heard a lot of people talking about how batteries of a laptop will degenerate over time. How much degeneration should I expect over a year? Should I take out the battery from the laptop and store it when I don't need it? Also, is there overcharging when you leave a battery in the...
