    A test to compare different NiMH battery capacities.

    FYI.

    Personally I am using Rayovac 1600 now.. I find that they are very good

    Hehe... I'm glad I have the Maha Charger... they are consistently rated the most reliable in almost every NiMH Review I see..

    Where do you get this rayovac? Have never quite noticed them. How much do they cost?

    do you mean you get 8 batteries + charger? if you got 4 batteries and a charger, you're very seriously "chopped".... the sony charger is actually a slow charger...... takes more than 12 hours to charge the batteries.

    4 panasonic batteries + 8 hour charger should cost around $32 too.

    yep, 4 batts + the charger can easily be bought at $30+. i found the lowest at ~$32. but decided to get just the batts cos i think its a slow charger.

    That's the list price at "Best". Might be cheaper elsewhere.

    Here's the pic. I got it too despite the relatively high price when compared to Mustafa. Was attracted by the casing
