    Default Eneloop vs Powerex 2700

    Hi

    I'm been disappointed with my Sanyo 2500mAh batteries self-discharge within 1 or 2 days to total flat.

    Anyone has any experience to share regarding Eneloop or Powerex 2700 batteries? Kindly share with me.

    Thanks!

    i think almost all ni-mh batteries discharge very fast, if you are not a frequent user, eneloop would be a better choice since you don have to keep recharging. but power wise, it might not be as high as powerex.

    Jus wondering how fast is Powerex 2700 self-discharge, I find Sanyo 2300 is much better than 2500. And heard that Eneloop self-discharge is very low.

    I agree, same here. And I have had problems with the rest, Powerex so far no problems. So Furthermore, it's approach to charging is very logical, soft charging, reconditioning, etc. Read more at their website ... I guess it's all valid then, as my experience so far with them has been excellent.

    Then try the Powerex batteries too, since you are already using their charger. Maybe they were made for each other. I think the price of the Powerex battery set is competitive.

    Quoted from thw [http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthrea...160420&page=2]
    "...I just tested my newly acquired Eneloop batteries on the Canon 420EX flash.
    In the tests, I noted the refresh times between firings and then took the average
    of 3 values. For NiMH batteries, it is 5.85 sec and for Eneloop batteries, 5.15 sec.

    Sorry, all that talk about Eneloop batteries being unsuitable for camera flash
    is baseless as well..."



    hi renegade150, may I ask, how much slower is the eneloop cp with GP2700?

    According to "thw" whom I quoted from another thread, he tested and found
    that the eneloop recycled slightly faster than his nimh batts.

    normah nimh batt tends to lose quite a % of charges after weeks, sometimes after like about a mth without using, i tried using on my flash it works but after awhile like wanted to die... so might as well just charge incase not much power insdie.
    most of the time i only carry 2 sets of nimh, if both set 1/2 dead 1/2 dead... then im the one who will be dead =x
