What is the difference between an OEM digital camera battery and DuracellDirect's digital camera batteries?
We carry replacement Duracell Direct digital camera batteries for Continental digital cameras that will meet or exceed OEM manufacturer
specifications. All aftermarket Continental digital camera battery products come with a full one year warranty, and carry
various UL, CE, RoHS and FCC safety certifications. Aftermarket digital camera batteries are built with high quality
materials and newer technology which makes them longer lasting digital camera batteries, safe, and have an advantage over
OEM Continental digital camera batteries.
What different types of Continental digital camera batteries are there?
There are several different types of aftermarket Continental digital camera batteries that you might find on DuracellDirect.
These different Continental battery chemistry types are: Li-Ion (Lithium Ion), Ni-Cad (Nickel Cadmium), Li-Poly (Lithium
Polymer), or NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride). Li-Ion is a fairly common digital camera battery chemistry type for Continental
batteries. Each Continental digital camera battery chemistry type has advantages and disadvantages, such as longer life per
charge, longer overall life cycle, weight, size, faster charge time, or stability. All four battery chemistry types
are universally accepted in Continental digital cameras.
Why do Continental batteries have different capacities?
Continental digital camera battery capacity is measured in “mAh” (milliampere-hour). Many different factors affect digital camera
battery capacities: in particular, digital camera battery cell size, voltage, wattage, and even the battery chemistry type.
The more electrolyte and electrode material there is in the digital camera battery cells, the larger the capacity will be
if the chemistry make up is the same. Continental digital camera batteries with larger capacities will always last longer than
digital camera batteries with lower battery capacities.
How long will my Continental digital camera battery last?
Your replacement Continental digital camera battery should last a few hours for recording and playback. Recharging your Continental
battery will take one to three hours to reach a full charge, with 80% battery capacity being reached the first hour.
Continental digital camera battery lifespan should last for about three years and can handle over 500 discharge / charge cycles.
How safe are Continental digital camera batteries and batteries in general? How do I take care of my Continental battery?
