Article Body:
The advent of digital technology has greatly changed the way consumers
use products. Digital cameras are one product that has shifted behavior
and production. Digital camera batteries vary by brand and model, and
also by the type of battery.

There are literally dozens of digital camera brands. Before finding the
right digital camera battery and adapter for your camera, you need to be
sure of the brand and model digital camera you are using. Once you select
the brand, there are numerous model numbers to choose from and these
batteries are typically not compatible across model numbers.
Manufacturers design a specific battery technology for each model that
provides optimum functionality for that specific digital camera.

Digital camera batteries can vary greatly by price depending on the type
of battery you purchase. Traditional alkaline batteries are far less
expensive than newer technology batteries, but do not last as long and do
not have as much power. In order to keep up with the fast pace of digital
cameras, manufacturers have created Lithium batteries. Lithium batteries
last up to 10 times longer than alkaline batteries, and therefore can
take many more pictures. Though lithium batteries last so much longer,
they weigh much less than alkaline batteries. For the convenience
however, lithium batteries are much more expensive than alkaline
batteries. Another inexpensive alternative to lithium batteries is oxy-
nickel batteries. There are specifically designed for digital cameras and
last up to four times longer than alkaline batteries.

There are lots of things to take into consideration when purchasing a
digital camera, but batteries aren’t usually one of those things, though
they should be. Batteries are one of the only supplies for a digital
camera that will need to be bought on a regular basis. Unlike
conventional cameras, you never need film for a digital camera. But if
you want to store these photos without a computer, you will need memory
cards that can store large files like the images taken with a digital
camera.
Buying the best digital camera battery is the best way to get the most
out of a digital camera. By buying quality batteries, you will be able to
take more pictures without delays and also save money in the long run.
