Default Speaking of batteries...

[try again] Does anybody have any information about how long a fully charged AA battery will remain 'good'...awaiting installation and use? I wonder if it's a function of the cost/quality?

This morning my wife's S2 announced it needed new batteries. She dug into her camera bag, brought out her set of four 'spares'...fully charged a few months ago... and the camera again announced it needed new batteries! I passed her my S3, and the job was done. Now I am charging several batteries.

We both use the 'optical' V/F and never have the LCD even open, unless we need a 'menu' for something, so we get a lot of life from the On-Air set. Tends to lull me into NOT checking the charge on the Ready Spares.

So if anybody has any *experience* with the shelf life of charged spares, I'd sure be interested in knowing what is what. EXPERIENCE, not 'SWAG'.
