Over 95 pictures with a dead battery !!!!! I could not take even 2 pictures when my camera cell died yesterday even after shaking the cell, camera, myself, my kid and even the trees around !!! Now I start to realize the quality of things in Germany.

I made even more but the rest was not so great lol that's why I made this "small" selection for the forum. But ja, those batteries were quite expensive, I remember now - I think they paid off perfectly well.

Maybe his batteries did not last because he did not shake them.

He shook his cell, camera, himself (huh?), his kid and the trees around hahaha.

But you need to speak to them as well hihi. It goes like that:

"Please battery, one more picture, PLEASE! I promise I will give you a break then. Just one more, maybe two if you can make it. I really NEED those pictures, my boyfriend said he would kill me if I come back from this exhibition without pictures."

That is the special magic!

While I didn't say I would kill you, I would have been very disappointed without the pictures.

You're very sweet Jenny, thank you - from the entire ICE section.

NiMH are rechargeable. Alkaline are not supposed to be rechargeable but you can "bump" them with a NiMh (not NiCad) charger just dont expect them to last long when "bumped" and if you "bump" too hard ( > 100ma) they can explode.

NiMH = Nickle Metal Hydride
Alkaline = Zinc+ Manganese DiOxide

A local company called Unison has an excellent catalog on batteries.

Well yes & no Navin, it is indeed a Mercedes but not a concept car. It's a standard R-class Mercedes which has been extensively modified by Alpine for their new demo vehicle. Earlier vehicles used were a chopped Mini Cooper & the likes.

Would you like me to dig out a link with the details of this setup & the modifications done to the car?
