When I'm getting ready to walk out the door on a photo shoot, I make sure all the batteries in my cameras and flashes are new and the best quality. The choice is easy, I load lithium batteries, they are lighter in weight, last a lot longer and have an amazing shelf life. Unfortunately they come at a very high price, which is also why I tend to shy away from lithium batteries when it comes to purchasing for my household electronics.

When you walk into the store and are confronted with a plethora of blister packed brands, where do you start? Which battery will suit your needs and give the best value for your money?
