Rechargeable Batteries – what a big difference!


I have been traveling for the past month and I have been taking lots of pictures…of course. It is amazing what a difference great rechargeable batteries make. I have written in the past about improving your battery life and I have mentioned the batteries made by GE/Sanyo.

Now I have really put them to the test and they perform excellently. I can fill more than 2Gb of pictures on my Canon A710 Is camera on one battery charge. And I’m using the flash and the camera screen as I wish, without restriction.As I was traveling to some tourist spots I kept hearing people saying: “my batteries are dying…again!”. I know that sentence very well but this time I had nothing to worry about. I had another set of batteries with me already charged and the set I was using would not die.

I got so excited about great rechargeable batteries that I have started using them in remote controls, wall clocks…pretty much anywhere I was using regular batteries before. The only problem is that I have already bought a large supply of regular alkaline batteries. What do I do with them now?

Essentials for organizing your digital photos

Here are the essential products and services I have come to rely on for many years to keep my media collection organized and safe. Even though these are affiliate links, I wholeheartedly recommend them.

Excellent Lightroom alternative. If you need a cheaper and simpler photo manager then ACDSee Photo Studio for Mac or ACDSee Photo Studio Professional for Windows is my preferred solution for organizing all my media. It has a very fast browser, great image editing and it's simple to use.

If you do a lot of image editing like I do, I recommend using Adobe Lightroom Classic CC via the annual Adobe Creative Cloud subscription. Lightroom has best photo editing capabilities even though it has a steeper learning curve. Adobe Lightroom is my favorite for image editing.

I recommend Backblaze Personal Cloud Backup for affordable & reliable unlimited cloud backup. I have been using Backblaze for backing up all pictures & videos for more than 5 years now. All my invaluable digital memories are safe and secure. This is the best solution especially if you have a large quantity of media files.

Use a reliable & affordable external hard drive for backing up everything on your computer. It is absolutely essential for keeping all your memories backed up and safe.
