Delkin Devices announced three new innovative additions to their line of AA battery
products - designed specifically with the digital photographer in mind. New to
Delkin's "Delkin Power" product line are three products that use the
newest in battery technology. Included in the new lineup are Extended Power 2900mAh
Rechargeable AA battery cells, a new AA/AAA International Quick Charger, and Ready-to-Use
Rechargeable AA battery cells that combine the benefits of single-use alkaline
cells with rechargeable cells.



The Ready-to-Use Rechargeable AA batteries combine all of the benefits of a rechargeable
with the benefits of a single use alkaline cell. Delkin's AA Ready-to-Use batteries
use technology that is said to allow them to hold their charge better than any
standard rechargeableThe batteries are environmentally friendly and can be charged
and recharged over 800 times then recycled at the end of their lifespan.



For those that are interested in the highest mAh rating available, Delkin's new
Extended Power 2900mAh Rechargeable AA batteries cater to high drain devices that
use a lot of power at one time, such as digital cameras that boast large LCD displays
with a powerful flash. The new Extended Power 2900mAh Rechargeable AA's are said
to offer more power to drive those high drain LCD screens and flash units. With
any rechargeable battery there always comes time for the need to recharge, so
Delkin decided to offer a new AA battery charger that would fulfill all of the
requirements of today's busy photographer. The AA/AAA International Quick Charger
uses four charging circuits compared to the one or two that most chargers use
today. This allows each battery to be individually monitored by the charger and
by the user, which enables a more adequate and longer lasting charge and drastically
increases safety. It also uses multiple safety features to protect against overcharge,
excessive heat and possible short circuiting, and uses a methodical charge rate
based on the quantity of cells being charged to properly condition and retain
the lifespan of the battery while charging it in a reasonable amount of time.
What's more, the AA/AA International Quick Charger is travel friendly with automatic
110V/220V switching and international plug options, with the US version having
a foldable power plug for easy packing. Charge time depends on the mAh rating
of the cells being charged, as well as the amount of cells being charged at one
time, but one 2900mAh cell will be fully charged in about 80 minutes.



All Delkin Power products are protected by the company's two year warranty and
can be found in camera stores worldwide, or at the company's website at www.delkin.com.
The Extended Power AA batteries as well as the Ready to Use AA batteries can be
purchased in packages of four and are priced at $16.99 and $17.99 respectively.
The AA/AAA International Quick Charger comes packaged with four of the Extended
Power AA batteries and is priced at $44.99.

Or, Why We Don't Review Digicams

by George Schaub

We have gotten some letters from readers asking why we don't normally
review integral lens digital cameras, or what we call digicams. One reason is
that they come and go so quickly. It's not unusual for a digicam to be
on them...
