    I think East Gear has moved from Peninsula to somewhere near Lavendar MRT/ Horne Road. Best to make a call before going down.

    Like some others above, I've also given up from GP batteries. Currently using Sanyo 2300/2500.

    Those using PowerEx sold by East Gear, can tell me what's the difference between PowerEx & say Sanyo or Sony or Energizer etc. The PowerEx packing says "Industrial" grade. Does it make a difference between "Industrial" grade vs "Consumer" grade?

    There is some offer at East Gear, quite tempted to get the portable storage & charger/batteries as spares.

    it's just a label la.. there's only one powerex 2700 mAh..

    usually most people will tell u there's only a need to choose between powerex and sanyo enelops. don't really have to bother about the rest..

    powerex has more power, so if u use ur batteries often they'll take more shots for each charge compared to others. sanyo enelops retain charge better but are not as powerful. So if u don't use ur batteries often, or don't want to bother to remember to recharge, then get the enelops...

    Well... I gave up totally on Sanyo's... they are too hot to operate for me.

    PowerEx is only hot when you charge them quick mode... If you allow them to charge slowly, they are pretty cool and operate at a much lower temp too.

    Hi guys, thanks for the replies. So PowerEx is the way to go!

    I got the Powerex 2700, not so sure about bundled being cheaper. Never ask them about separate prices, there could be a sale for the battery as well.

    I have 10 pieces of Sanyo Eneloop batteries. I compare their performance by charging them at random either with Sanyo charger or PowerEx charger. I notice that those charged with Sanyo charger (2 batteries at a time) lasts at least 30 to 20% longer than those charged with PowerEx charger.

    Check out http://www.thomas-distributing.com/index.htm. I use powerex 2700 and their charger by MAHA. Their charger will charge eneloop batteries also. The powerex 2700 work great in my SB-800. Hope this helps.
