How long do camcorder batteries usually last?

The average life of camcorder batteries is between 500 to 800 charge and discharge cycles, which typically equates to 1 to 3 years. You can extend battery life by using any eco modes available and by limiting the amount of idle time during which the camcorder remains powered on but not in use.

What is the best rechargeable battery material?

Nickel metal hydride, or NiMH, batteries are ideal for use in high-drain devices, such as camcorders. NiMH batteries discharge energy more steadily than the alternatives and thus last longer. NiMH batteries regularly last for more than 700 charge cycles, making them reliable and energy saving.

What are the advantages of lithium-ion batteries?

Lithium-ion batteries have a low self-discharge rate but do lose some energy capacity in time. These batteries should be recharged often, and there is no risk of overcharging since they are designed to stop accepting energy once they are fully charged.
