    I find the PowerEx 2700mAH better in terms of longer-lasting life per charge and that is key when you're shooting events which demand for prolong use of your flashgun.

    PowerEx 2700 when you need the RAW power... can hoot longer

    Imedion if you are a low or infrequent user... can keep on shelf longer...

    Btw, I just bought the C801. Looks quite nice on the table charging all the free Imedions...

Use same capacity batteries on those can only charge in pairs as the charger will stop charging once it sense one of the battery is full so your higher capacity battery will never get fully charged.
    - look for chargers that can provide trickle charge so you can top up the batteries if they stayed on the shelf unused for a while.
    - look for chargers that can provide recondition mode to revive dead batteries.
    Yes strongly agree with your pointers. GP used to be in my top list of rechargeable batt choice but after using Sanyo eneloop i would have dumped all my GPs if it weren't for my initial investment in the quick charger. Take your time to charge the batteries. 2~4 hours to top up a couple of 2700mH should be alright. Eneloop batteries are lower self-discharge rechargeables compare to GP rechargeables. So better go for lower self discharge type of rechargeables if you are not using the batteries that often.

    Now all my home's clocks, my cams run on rechargeables and i almost forgotten when was the last years i bought an alkaline and the last time i threw a battery away into the bin.

    Plan to get C801 as well, tonight, around 6pm I guess.
    And I hv 8 old AA and 8 old AAA to trade in.
    Since the charger C801 come with 8 AA, I think I only need trade in my AAA for another 8 pcs.
    Any one want my AA old battery? Will give u for free

    I think it's over now... but you can check with Eastgear if they still accept.

    I went there on the last day of Comex and traded in for the PowerEx 2700. I prefer the PowerEx 2700 over the Imedions, so it was a good deal for me...
