    Maha Powerex, Powerex Imedion, Eneloop!

    however, use the powerex2700mah for >1yr, and the retaining power starts to decrease..the imedion still working well tho.

    Buy normal chargers. Quick chargers wear out the battery faster.

    Agree. Quick chargers are the biggest reason for rechargeable failures.

    As for my favourite - Powerex Imedions.

    I have tested GP, Energizer, Sanyo and Sony.

    This Sony to me is the winner:

    If you are a heavy user, then go for the 2700 PowerEx.

    If you use very little or infrequently, then go for the imedions or eneloops

    Let's not name brands here...

    but can a brand A charger be used to charge a brand B rechargables?

    No issues using any brand batt with any brand charger.

    I see, there will not be any mAh issues as well rite, just that the higher mAh will need more time to charge?

    Eneloop for me. In my RC days, i have many of these batteries of different brands. Honestly, eneloop stood out. And I am using it now on my flash and it last man.

    Have used both eneloop n imedion, eneloop seems to perform better in terms of holding charge in long storage n dont drain as fast when using it for my flash.

    i read on eastgear they are selling the 401 charger along with 4 imedions @ $67 compare to a 204 charger and a pack of 4 Eneloops at $57 + $20 = $77??

    Is Maha charger the way to go? or are they cheaper alternatives but with pretty decent performance?

    Some of the Maha chargers are pretty sophisticated. I have had a few chargers. DON'T buy the quick chargers; I think these are the main reasons your batteries don't last long.

    The Mahas are good.
