These batteries are a massive improvement on the original Ni-Cd batteries and on the Varta 5/V500RH. They last significantly longer than earlier batteries. Nickel Metal Hydride chemistry gives memory free operation and, being cadmium free, is environmentally friendly. Not suffering from the 'memory effect' means these batteries will continue to power your Hasselblad camera well into the future.

These NH5/750 Hasselblad batteries are designed to fit, and be charged on, your camera as before. There is no need to replace or upgrade your charger - which is just as well, as alternative chargers can be quite difficult to find.

For use with cameras such as:

Varta NiCd 5/600DKZ,
