Albert, I have the Rebel Ti also and I just bought the BP-220 Battery Pack to replace the CR-2 Battery that is getting weak. Even though I can buy a 2 pak of CR-2s at WalMart for under $10.00 I want to get out of that deal and be able to use rechargable AAs. The BP-220 takes 4 AA batteries. I'll just use good AA batteries for now and buy a Energizer or Duracell rechargable battery and charger kit soon.
Another reason for getting the BP-220 is that it will add some height to the camera body for easier handling and it also has a shutter release on it to make shooting vertical shots easier.
A friend has bought the Canon A80. It comes with AA batteries unlike the G3/G5 which has a rechargeable battery. Can anyone recommend the best rechargeable batteries for the Canon A80? And whether there is a recharging battery pack which will perform in the same way as the G3 and G5?
Thank you
