Hi All Using a Finepix S9600 (not that that matters!) and have 2 sets of Energizer NiMH batteries (4 x 2500mAh and 4 x 2450mAh). I charge both sets using an Energizer 1 hour NiMH charger (CH1HR-2). The problem I have is that neither set of batteries will hold their charge for long. If I charge them just before use, they will last... well, I'm not sure, because I turn off the camera as often as possible when shooting; but I'd say they last for a couple of hours of photography. BUT if I charge them a day or two before use, when I put them in the camera, they either work for a few seconds or not at all! They are stored in the camera bag at room temperature. I've charged and decharged them several times to get rid of any 'memory effect' but I'm now so fed up with needing to take photos and finding that neither set will work. Has anybody experienced this before? Is it the batteries, the charger, or the camera even? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
