hmmmm, i am not sure... but depends on wat equipment you are using ba, as in the price.

i remember seeing a thread of someone's SB600 flash gone becos of leaking batts. and the flash cost about 300 2nd hand?

wont risk my 300 bucks flash for something i can replace with less than 20 bucks.

thats how i see it :)

Hmmm.... :think: Usually the seal of NiMH is better than alkaline battery. How can it leakage :dunno: ? Did you drop it? How about the rest (usually you buy battery in pair or package of 4)? How long since you buy it, and how often you charge it?

Arto.

Usually caused by overcharging or too rapid charging. The cells release pressure via a safety valve, leaking electrolyte. The valve may not seal properly once activated, and leakage may continue.

Hmmm.... make sense :thumbsup: .

So, slow charger is better than fast charger.

Better to change it. Lucky you caught the leak before you used it in your equipment.:think:
