    what do u mean last long? in terms of holding charge or high capacity?

    I've Sony blue stamina batts and they're very good. Can hold charge for bout 1 month. Konnoc is also not bad but those eneloop takes the cake! Bought 4 in oct last year, used 2 and recently use the other 2, as good as new without 1st charge. But its capacity is 2000-2100 only.

    You guys think if i charge my GP, on a poweREX battery charger, can work?

    The guy at EG took 2 days to reply my email. he said the poweREX charger can charge my GP batts.
    but i'm a bit wary. Maybe just buy the GP ones i guess. urgh.

    The best rechargable batteries I have found are Fuji and Sony.

    They tend to hold their charge longer than others.

    The worst I have found are Inca and Powerbase.

    I will only charge Fuji batteries in Fuji chargers and Sony batteries in Sony chargers.

    A battery charger is not just any charger, it is made to charge it's own batteries at correct rates for that battery.

    Don't buy cheap stuff; that is cheap technology. Pay the extra and buy something that will perform correctly and reliably.

    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    i chose Others
    I'm using Camelion 2600 batteries on my flash which can last me for about 400 shots using Sony 56' Flash.

    They are good and i feel it can hold the charge for very long. Im using their 1hr quick charger too!
    i bought it for 40plus for a pack of 4batteries and close to 100plus for the charger at a distributor price as my father know the exporter :P

    I think it could be a bad batch of 2,500. The office at Heeren could change for you. There is a thread on this. Do a search.

    PowerEx 2700 & GP 2700 for photographic applications.
    Also keep a pack of 4 Energizer e2 alkalines in my bag as emergency standby.

    Non-photographic use (like in R/C modelling, batt. powered hand-tools, etc)
    GP ReCycKo+

    I've somehow lost confidence in Sanyo.
