    At least it holds power for me. But, please.... Switch to Enelope. I just sold my whole Sony Charger / Batt system away.

    The heat is unbearable.

    Argh ok understand what you mean & after seeing your picture.
    No I got back silver ones as replacements & they are just as lousy.

    Will send them another.
    Hope to get the new orange ones & hope they will turn out fine.

    The Sanyo charger that comes with the Eneloop batteries says NiMH, I think it shouldnt be a problem if one tries with other brands of NiMH chargers. your batteries work just fine right?

    the orange ones are much better than the silver ones i owned.

    i just popped some batteries in my flash today and there's still juice enough for me to burst fast enough. as compared to my silver ones, it just dies the next day, and very unreliable when shooting actual day weddings.

    i was told that it reached the end of cell life but i don't remember charging it more than twice a week. owned it for a year only.

    I traded in my old Sanyo 2500mAh for new PowerEx 2700mAh at EG. Can't stand the problem..

    Hi all,

    I own 4 SANYO 2700 mAh, that comes with a 4-slot Charger, and 6 Eneloop 2500mAh with 1 x 2-slot Quick charger.

    I am wondering if I could use the Charger that was meant for the 2700mAH batteries for my Eneloop, since they are both Ni-MH?

    True. IIRC, Powerex AA 2700mAh new 4 package $18. Buy with charger $15.

    Sony heat?

    Come to think of it, I have some Sony AAA cells which I used in my Pelican Tracker strobe, when ever I open the strobe after using for around 45 mins, I always hear a "pop" sound. That must be the heat built up. No such problem when I use other brands of AAA cells.

    I just tested same brand of batteries over Sony & PowerEx chargers. The batteries in the Sony & the Sony charger both feel warmer than the other.
