7 day shop doing 2900mah in a case for £4.99
#2
My experience with these is not good. Don't hold their charge well and total charge capacity drops off after each charge. Mine are between 1 and 2 years old and I no longer use them much. I have moved onto LSD batteries instead. 7 day shop do those as well - go for them.

I just bought some Uniross Performance 2700Mah for £5.70, As far as I am aware a lot better then the Encore?

I think blister was just giving you a link to the ones he mentioned as LSD batteries (ones which keep their charge a LOT longer than normal rechargeable batteries). High capacity rechargeables are ok if you are going to use them shortly after charging but if you leave them in a device for a prolonged period and expect them to work you may be disappointed. For a lot of people Eneloop/LSD type batteries are far more practical though they have a lower capacity

This whole, they dont hold their charge long enough argument i find ridiculous when people make it. If you have something that you use so little that the batterys loose their charge without being used then why even bother using rechargeable batterys.

Yet I bet Uniross beats them hands down every time, I really dont get people who are so cheap they would rather buy an inferior product then pay an extra £1. Honestly.

Just bought 4 packs of 2100mah from Wilkinsons at £7.50 a pack for my Canon 5D's Speedlite flash...

......Gutted!

Feel like throwing them away and getting these now as I am sure after a few days of hardcore shooting all over the world, I could do with 25% more battery life per battery.

I can't recall Uniross how they did it was along time ago but as 7day ones were way one the highest.
I guess for the little difference it'll make then 7day ones will be fine.

By these, I meant the 7dayshop 2900mah ones, not the ones in this deal ...

Just to add my two pence worth, I have a lot of these Encore batteries (I use them in my satnav, a couple of digital cameras and a Skyscout), I don't have any problems with them - they can lose their charge if left unused for a long while but I've found many batteries do that. That said, I do have a lot of them and an okay charger so I can keep a rotation going (which probably helps to keep them well conditioned).
#16
I have these batteries and they dont hold charge after a while. I put them in the camera after being charged up and they dont last long.

I had uniross before with less power but atleast they did the job. I would not recommend these batteries in the long run.

It's just from personal experience. I had a normal rechargeable in my mini digital radio which I use approx every 2 weeks to little to football commentary when watching live. It only lasted one match and a bit before running out. When I got the low discharge type (granted it was new) it lasted about 8 matches. Similarly in my portable radio I got about 4-5x longer out of the low discharge ones. It depends what you mean by 'so little'. I use the radio once or twice a week for short periods - and I know I expect the batteries to work when I use the radio again. I also use them in remote controls which when you think about it are being used very little over a long period of time. I get better results in them too,.

I use 7dayShop LSD batteries at work - I have about 150 of them - and I can vouch for them as being excellent in terms of performance and value.

What I don't get is why people blindly trust in a brand name rather than trying stuff and making their own evaluation.

Errrr cost? Flash guns are a great example of less frequent use where you're not guaranteed to completely discharge the batteries when you've finished shooting... hence batteries that hold their charge are great for when you want to just grab the camera (and it actually work!)
