I've used both PowerEx 2700mAH and iMedion 2100mAH. I prefer the latter over the former. The charge retention is really great. Gone were those days that I have to make sure that my rechargeable batts have been charged the night before. Would recommend you get it. :)

:Later,

Yes still a very good deal, remember to trade in an old charger to get $10 off.

I have GP 2700mAH, Energizer 2500mAH and Sanyo 2700mAH. Of the three, so far Sanyo lasts the longest, with Energizer coming in 2nd (despite the fact that it's only 2500mAH), and GP coming in last.

GP is a bit cheaper too among the 3 but IMHO, I'd rather pay up for a Sanyo anytime (unless Energizer comes out with a 2700mAH).

As above, they don't have promo for 2700MAH. Packed with 2100MAH Imedion, is it worth to get? I'm using Canon 580EXII. Is this promo a good catch?
It says need to exchange old batteries to be eligible for the $16 for 4 offer. How strict are they in implementing it?

All my old batteries were long gone...

On a related question, is it okay to use any charger on any rechargable? Will it affect the battery? Or just the time taken to charge?

Rule of thumb for selecting charger:
- don't go for the fast chargers. Those 1-hr charger will heat up the batteries and cause it to deteriorate faster.
- some chargers can charge single battery such as C801D and some will need to charge them in pair. 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.
