i want to get some NiMH rechargeable batteries for my gpsmap76s. 2300mAh batteries are available for high drain units but is the garmin one of these?. would i be better going for lower power such as 1600mAh?

thanks

Hi, It is best to buy the highest capacity you can afford. I bought Uniross 2300's + the ultra fast charger which you can use on any mains voltage from 100 to 240 and the 12v car cigar plug! and find them great.. you should be able to buy for around 30

I also use the Uniross 2300's and I have found them to be excellent. Not sure where you intend to buy them from but I saw the Uniross 2300 4 pack in Dixons yesterday for about 15. I bought the very same Uniross 2300 mAh AA 4 pack from 7dayshop for 7.59, nearly half the price of the high street. Even with postage if it's the only thing your order from them, it's still a good saving.

I've just received some Vapex Technology 2400 mAh batteries which are being charged at the moment so I'm unable to comment but I'm hopeful.

I use the Unniross 2300mAh cells as well, but I also carry a set of Lithium non-rechargeable cells, in case I get completely unstuck and discharge both sets of NiMHs
