Kodak Batteries

Kodak is also announcing a new series of NiMH rechargeable batteries. These new batteries come pre-charged - ready to use right out of the package. They will also stay charged 4 times longer than standard NiMH batteries (the batteries typically lose charge over time). The batteries will have a lifetime of 1,000 charges. The 2100 mAh, 1.2 volt batteries will be available in AA and AAA size. A one hour charger with 4 batteries will be available for $30 and a value charger with four batteries will be available for $16. A 4-pack of AA batteries will retail for $14 and a pack of AAA batteries will retail for $9. Look for the batteries in July.
