    Default Panasonic Oxyride - Anyone caught with the hype yet?

    Hi everyone,

    Dont know if everyone heard of the new Panasonic Oxyride - http://www.panasonic.com/consumer_el..._ms/flash.asp?

    I bought several of those batteries for my canon flashes and they are pretty long lasting I must say. Been using them for nearly a week of heavy usage and my first batch is still going strong. Well, my question is with the extra voltage spike (1.7v instead of 1.5v) I am wondering whether it does more harm than good to my heavily invested electronic equipment? Any electrical/electronics experts willing to comment? Thanks a lot!

    Not tried it, but I know Energizer's Titanium e2 AA batteries can be had at $8.90 for an 8-pack.

    I havent tried the Energizer's yet. The Panasonic Oxyride costs $6.90 for a 4 pack. Kinda expensive.

    This is the typical price for the "premium grade" single-use AA batts. Energizer e3 (or e2???) batts were also originally $6.90 per 4-pack, and I think Duracell M3 is also about the same price. I do know Oxyrides now and then will have "buy-4-get-2-free" promo. But like we've discovered, at 1.7v initial voltage, it may be too much of a good thing.

    I'm still sticking to my 2500 Sanyos, but with its discharge issues and that I'm using an apparently lousy Konnoc charger, I'm not sure if I'm getting max juice out of them also.
