    Question Is It Possible To Replace Rechargeable AA NiMH Batteries With Li-Ion Battery ?

    Hello Everyone ,

    A relative of mine got a digicam as a gift .. it depends on 2*AA Rechargeable NiMH Batteries , but once they are exhausted , it takes nearly 6-7 hrs. for recharging using a dock for rechargeable batteries !

    So can we have an Li-ion battery for the same dimensions so that it fits the digicam battery console , instead of using the AA batteries ! Also , what are the available modes for charging the Li-ion battery , will the AC adapter plugged in the camera work in this scenario ?

    Thanks

    No u cant replace NiMH batteries for Li-Ion batteries. One NiMH cell gives 1.2V while one Li-Ion cell gives 3.7V. The charger for Li-ion batteries, hence, is also different.

    I was comfortably able to switch NiMH to Li-ion battery without damaging the equipment.
    Its just the thing about Mah. Check whether its Mah 750 , 1200, 1500.
    Also let us know if you are using AA or AAA battery and we can further help you.
    I am what, a Figment of my own imagination.

    Can u give more details? - how is ur camera's/equipment's battery holder? how many NiMH cells did it accomodate earlier and how many li-ion cells it accomodates now? how do u recharge?

    About the same mAh theory, i dont agree. mAh is the amount of usable charge that the cell can store when fully charged which merely indicates the amount of time for which it can power the equipment.
