Thumbs up Rayovac Rechargeable Review

Posted this earlier in the Photography Anyone thread, then realized there would be more chance of it being read if I gave it its own thread.

Quote:
Began using these batteries well over a year ago. When one pair is discharged, I charge the other pair, then run that pair. The last charge held for four months while taking over 90 images, plus some on camera image reviews.

Compare this to the Energizers I had been using previously. At the tender age of one year, the Energizers would probably not have held a charge for a week, even if we had not taken any pictures.

So a big thumbs up to the Rayovac Pre-charged, rechargeable batteries.

EDIT: I have no connection with Rayovac or anyone who sells these. But they are so superior to the other NiMH batteries I have tried, that I thought it worthwhile to pass along this info.

I concur. I have four types of rechargables on the go for my to speedlites and these are the best. Recharge time on the flashes is the best with these an they keep their charge between shoots much better as well!

Well I will have to give these a chance. I purchased the Duracell at Costco about a month ago. Charge them removed the charger from the wall went away for 4 days and when I came back, a couple of them had exploded.

These are rare in stores I frequent and haven't seen any in years now. Any tips on where a guy should look for them in this area Bob?

Speaking of batteries, Anyone seen "AAAA batteries" (Yes, That's 4 A's) sold in a normal store and not just online?
I've given up looking for them at Walmart or any other big box store.

I got mine at Walmart. About the same price as the more common and totally useless Energizers.

Seem to recall hearing that Rayovac was undergoing some sort of re-organization so hopefully these batteries were not lost in the shuffle.

Will be by Wally World later this week so will let you know what I find.

Thanks guys, we have a Walmart Super Centre here, so will go have a peek today. I need some for my pepper grinder with a built in recharger in the motor home. The Superstore brand lasted only one summer.

Don the big advantage with these is that unlike the other varieties they hold their charge for a very long time, up to six months. I wish I knew how compatible that is with not letting them run down between re-charging.

I can unplug the charger unit and use them until they run down. My problem now is the replacement set I have, lose their charge by the time I need them to swap into the grinder. My hope is that the Ray-O-Vacs will hold from your experience.
