It has been a long time since I was on here and building cam's.
It is now time to buy new battery's for my trail cams, s40-p41-s600
I have used En loops and  Energizer re-chargeable but they have gone by the wayside.
Going to set out several cams next month and want to know what is the best battery to use? ma?
All my cams have external battery hook-ups available but I probably wont use because thee cam's will only be out 1 week.
Thanks for any help

If you need them quickly then probably best bet is to get Enegizer lithiums locally. Have heard though to make sure they are the Ultimum(?) and not the Advanced. if going to use externals remember not to mix the lithiums with alkaline.
If ordering them though I've heard good things about the Immedons(?) and I'd get a higher mA, 2300-2400. I have some Enloops (2100 and 2400) that I had heard were good but my S600's don't last a week with them and on others just don't seem to get good life each time set out.

I use both Energizer and Imedion AA rechargables (total of 40 sets of four), and two sets of Rayovacs, both in the camera and as externals. I can't see much difference between the brands; I had a few Duracell AA rechargables a number of years ago but they didn't last long. All of my AAs are 2400 mah or more. The Energizers are bought locally, the Imedions through Ebay.

I have only use Eneloop with trail cams and haven't had a problem.  Some of mine i got used and dont know how old they are but seem ok.  If you or someone you know has Amazon prime, you can get Eneloop batteries via Prime shipping in 2 days.  I remember reading somewhere about Amazon rechargeable batteries, but cant remember where or if good or bad.

I use eneloop pro which are the new style eneloop XX batteries. Plus recently started with amazon basics which was mentioned on another site that they were rebranded eneloop batteries as it is. Both are HR6 and both kinds are 2400 mah or higher. Amazon basics you can get real quick from amazon.ca or amazon.com within days. I bought them on sale and they are about half price as eneloop pro which I get from China via eBay. Be sure to look for the 2400 mah ones if u go with amazon basics as they have many different models/brands. I also use the same in AAA for my control boards that take AAA batteries. I deal with extreme cold in Saskatchewan and am impressed thus far wit the amazon batteires and eneloop. With that said I have always used the eneloop 2400 mah batteries till I tried the amazon basics in the spring of 2016 to present. I have heard great things about powerex and imedian as well. Good luck and glad to see you back into homesbrews ..
