Rechargeable batteries are an essential part of our modern lives, powering our gadgets and electronics, reducing waste, and saving us money. And nowhere do they deliver more than in the photography and videography industries. However, not all rechargeable batteries are created equal. At PROtog, we recognise this, which is we stock such an extensive range of rechargeable batteries and chargers, so no matter what your battery needs are, we’ll be able to help you.
One brand we love is Maha Batteries. They’ve distinguished themselves as an industry leader by addressing one of the most significant issues with rechargeable batteries: self-discharge. Maha Batteries' IMEDION batteries were the first to tackle this problem head-on. By using advanced electrode materials, they reduced the rate of power loss during storage, allowing the batteries to retain up to 85% of their charge even after one year of storage at room temperature. This made them an ideal choice for devices that are not often used, such as remote controls, flashlights, and cameras.
To further enhance their low self-discharge technology, Maha released their current range of rechargeable batteries, the POWEREX PRECHARGED. These batteries feature the same technology as IMEDION but with an increased capacity of 2600mAh, making them the highest capacity low discharge batteries on the market. This means that they are perfect for high-power devices like external camera flashes, where low internal resistance is crucial.
Moreover, these batteries can be recharged up to 800 to 1000 times, making them an economical and environmentally friendly option. They can be charged in any Maha Powerex battery charger or any other NiMH battery charger, providing you with flexibility and convenience.
Rechargeable batteries and chargers are an essential combination for any photographer or filmmaker who is looking for a long-term solution to powering their devices. Maha Batteries' POWEREX PRECHARGED batteries are an excellent choice for those looking for a reliable and high-capacity battery. They are also an excellent alternative to Lithium Battery Rechargeable, which can be more expensive and have a shorter lifespan.
