Sanyo Eneloops and Powerex Imedions both 2000mAh on 580EXII. Works well. 1/1 power recharges in 2.5 seconds.

Sanyo Enerloops only. My previous set of Sanyo 2700 gave up on me, all eight of them. GPs are horrible in terms of quality, 4 of them vented some fairly corrosive gas during charging causing my charger terminals to become black.

got use before with mini Tamiya car but when compare with the Sanyo i have, the eneloop output power like weak but no doubt the discharge rate of the eneloop is impressive.

MAHA IMEDION is rated 2100.
tests had shown that it can retain charge better than eneloop.
but heck! it just saves you like 10-20 shots.
but IMEDION does have more juice to start with. ;)

I dun like to use Imedions (even thought I have 8 pieces)

I prefer the normal higher powered PowerEx ones rated at 2700. THOSE will give you plenty of juice to last. I have 20 of those. ;)

For me, Ansmann. Compared to other brands, it gives faster cycle time and has longer charge retention (except for Imedions & Eneloops). Too bad it is not available locally.
