"Do you remove Ni-Mh batteries from SB-400 ?"


US
          

I know this question immediately gives me away as a newbie, but do you (photograpghers who use recharchable batteries all the time) remove Ni-MH batteries from SB-400 when done shooting? Some people tell me that batteries, no matter how good they may be, "leak" all the time, other people tell me it's an urban legend and today's batteries don't leak..


What's your answer?


Thanks,
Mark

I think if you're not using the equipment for months or years, then yes, take them out. Mind you, if they do leak, it's generally only a bit of corrosion/green stuff on the contacts which is easy to remove.

No I do not but I use Rayovac batteries which as far as I can tell are the only ones which will replace the equipment if they damage it.

My experience with quality batteries is they leak so seldom as to not be a problem.

My equipment flash is used about once every two weeks.
