CP-16R bettery life vs. recell
Posted 18 December 2005 - 09:13 PM
I'm wondering, can anyone comment on the battery life of buying a new CP-16R battery versus getting an old one re-celled?
Both in terms of overall lifespan and how long you can shoot before needing to charge the battery.
I've heard the recells are better but I'd love to hear it from you guys.

1. Recelled batteries may last a little longer, because newer cell designs have somewhat higher capacities...something like 15-20 percent.
2. A battery in good condition, running a tuned-up camera, should last at least ten mags.

As far as it's lifespan, I would think 100-200 charges(that's a complete guess though).
