    FYI.

    I am using a Battery Charger from East Gear to charge the battery pack.

    As per the specs, the charger is charging at 0.9A output and will fully-charge a battery pack in 90minutes.

    After I replace the battery cells, I time the charging ..... and the charging from a fully drained pack to fully charge, actually took 4 hours ( 7:50am this morning to 11:50am). This means that the amount of capacity inside the cells is really alot.

    The original battery pack is 1600mAh ( 10 x AA cells ). I removed all the cells and then replaced them with 10 x Sanyo 2700mAh ones... now, the battery seems to last a life time
    Hmm... Not sure if my verification works or not. Eneloop series are ok. Normal sanyo I tested against powerex last time. Charge wise storage abt the same. Difference lies in retaining charge. A normal powerex can retain charge very well. Even 2 weeks unused still got arnd 90% charge. Sanyo left 10-20% after 2 weeks. If frequent user then sanyo works fine.

    from my past experience with older packs, I can take like 300 - 350shots for a fully charged battery pack. For this new pack, I am not sure, have not tried yet... will let you know.

    I kept the Powerex for 2 month not using...the retain charge is still there.

    I know solder the batteries together, but how to fix it into the battery compartment in 1D series.

    You are quite right, ENELOOPs are designed to hold the charge. Thats their selling point.

    However, I am not sure if eneloop cells are suitable for DSLR use, seems like eneloop cells internal resistance is not low enough and hence is not suitable for high discharge LOADs, for example DSLR, remote control cars, or flash light that will need fast recover time.

    If you intend to use for those lower drain items, like TV remote control , Air-CON remote control, shavers, simple torch lights that uses 2xAA etc... then it should be fine. BTW, Eneloop cells are not cheap either.

    For a good guage on self-discharge, you can based on a 25% per month self discharge rate for general rechargeable cells. Which means that if you leave a cell on the table for 4 months, then the capacity will goes to ZERO...

    Sorry if I sound too technical... no choice lah, I am an engineer

    Eneloops can withstand high discharge, I got to know this from a flashlight forum a lot of the flashaholics like to use Eneloops for their high power LEDs flashlights.
