Are these good batteries? People seem to like them , and at a 1/3 of the price. I have decided to get one through Adorama/Amazon...$ 38.00 to my door...

They have been great in my experience. I'm using them in a 1DII and 1DsII.

Do they need to be discharged like the Canon ones, or do they not have the memory effect?...

I discharge all NiMH batteries just as standard practice. I usually just discharge the Lenmars through use, throw one of my backup batteries in while charging, and then back to the Lenmar.

At the risk of sounding like a dingbat...what do they mean by 'discharging' a new battery?? Does that just mean using it until it drains?

Just got a Lenmar in the mail for Mark II N, and want to clarify....

Thanks!

The charger has a discharge so there is not a memory built in to the battery . Older batteries remembered a shorter charge and that is way they completely discharge the battery and that starts the battery at new. You only do it periodically. There is a charge and recharge button. When you hit the rechage button it discharges and recharges the battery in about 10 hrs. It is in the manual,you can pull it up by going to Google and hitting 1D Mk II N manual...Rich
