    Don't know if it's applicable, but my Energizers 2500s have to be charged a day before I go shooting,

    If more than 2 days a little while only no more power already, then you see low battery indicator, damn sian

    Don't know, I myself prefer Eneloop, capacity's slightly lower, 2000MaH, but the charge retaining is godlike, ha

    I have been using GP rechargeable 2100mAH for about 2 years and they work great - that is for my flash. But, it is advisable to recharge after a week or so, so that you have a full charge when you're out shooting.
    I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.

    For SB 800 and 600, how fast is the recovery rate between shots? for the ready light to light up. Important for fast shooting...
    :blah: D80, Sigma 18-50/f2.8, 70-200/f2.8 (HSM).

    In my experience... .

    I have 1 set of 4 AAs that cannot hold charge for more than 2 days. I have to keep them in the charger to trickle charge them until I need to use them. Otherwise, they are next to useless.

    Yes, energiser. After 2 days, it can't even charge up my flash.

    I use a Maha charger while has individual charging circuitry for each battery. I found that it is 2 out of the 4 batteries that went totally discharged. The other 2 although they are not fully discharged, they have also lost a significant amount of charge.

    Normal setting... Flash zoom at 24mm. Camera shutter at 1/60s.
