You could save extra money by buying their Good-to-Go batteries for £6.58 for 8x with case delivered. I am using those for the last two years and they are equal in quality to the Sanyo (which I have also used before). Even though, the older type normal rechargeable batteries have higher Amp, I wouldn't go back to the older type. These are much more convenient because I can leave them in inbetween use of camera and they keep fresh for ages without the need for a recharge.

ditto pet2000 for me, but if Eneloop is your thing then this is a great price.
#3
I agree with pet2000 I have both Eneloops (I paid less than this for them too!) and Good2 go, and can't tell the difference in practical use.
#4
I have both too - eneloops seem to last longer but maybe I'm imagining it

Good price on these.

You aren't imagining it TiscaliSurvivor.

The 7dayshop batteries should instead be packaged like this.

That's supposed to be a technical review is it?

Very pretty web site, one set of each batteries, arbitrary testing, make it sound scientific. make the site look as if it is "important."
About as technical as sticking your head out of the door to see if it is raining! Pretty much as technical as the way I formed my opinion, they just seem similar! ;-)

Still, even if it is true, and not just a duff batch, I wish I could buy petrol the same way: in rough terms, 33% cheaper to buy, and only 15% less mileage!

From the "I've fully tested them" reviews I've seen of this type of battery it looks more like the quality control in producing them is very hit and miss, as there are loads of reports saying each brand is best and the others are crap, none of them are consistently good or bad.

I think that is true of so many products now.

Thanks for the pretty site comments. The site isn't important. It is a blog. You know what that is? My thoughts/findings.

It certainly wasn't supposed to be a technical review.

If you read the page properly you would see I purchased two sets of the same cell, AA.

As for the arbitrary testing. Perhaps I did receive a duff batch? I have already wasted £8 on these cells and I will not waste any more money on them when the two sets have failed to deliver anywhere near the advertised capacity, and I don't care about price to capacity ratio. I have 6x4 sets of AA Sanyo Eneloop cells and every single cell gives consistent results.

Your engine to battery analogy doesn't really work in this instance. An engine can be driven in different ways.. You can put your foot down or pull away slowly and quickly get to 5th gear when reaching 30 to preserve fuel. A device requiring electricity will only take what it needs. My findings are that the 'tank of fuel' is cut when it shouldn't need to be. We are not talking miles per gallon here.

I will also again say that there have been no tests on these cells in the long term to count successful charge cycles or the amount of discharge over time.

I would be very interested in your findings on these cells, nihcaj.

I would be very interested in your findings on these cells, nihcaj.



As I say, my findings are similarly as basic and empirical as yours, but with an opposing end opinion! You've tried them and don't like them, I have tried a few lots, and do like them. Seem to do what I want to do, in the same way my one batch of Eneloops do. Don't think so much of the one set of Hybrios I have, but maybe they are just a one off, even so if the price of those was competitive, I would probably buy more of those too, the difference to me seems a bit insignificant.

Either way, if the price is right, I will be buying more of whatever brand, I don't have any great affinities, and so far they are all much better than standard NiMH for the things I use them for, and all do the things I ask of them - if they last a couple of days or so less or more than another brand, I probably wouldn't notice that, nothing I, (or most other people) use is that second-critical, the benefit of having a stock of LSD type batteries is there will always be another charged ready in the drawer - if I was needing to climb 30 feet into the air to change a battery, then it would be another matter, and I would be buying one that lasted, but that's something more in the specialist range, and it would then probably be a rare situation where a disposable would be the answer!

So far at £3.99 or less for a set the Goodtogo wins for me, it offers me best value, but hey, maybe the Lidl "Tronic" ones are going to be nearly as good as them, so at £2.99 - that's 25% cheaper still, then they MIGHT be better value, that's all I, and most users need. If it is a few days sooner before I need to change them in say a remote control , then it won't worry me, because I simply won't notice it, either way, they are likely to last a long time and will save me a fortune compared to disposable batteries.

All that said some actual technical tests, under some varied conditions and usage would be good, if only for general interest. The only ones I have seen are somewhat limited and out of date now.

Whey have you "wasted" 8 quid on the ones you have? They will still work fine in most gear, OK, you consider them not to be the best, but they will run remote controls, clocks, kids toys, whatever. I use them in a camera, and can't remember the last time I had to change them.

Perhaps you have unlimited income and ALWAYS buy the very best available - the "Finest" range in supermarkets, and luxury cars, as well as the best house in the area - most of us don't, we buy the best value things we can. If I only bought the very best at any cost when buying any item, then I would be overspending on a grand scale, so I don't, I buy good value - why do I need to do any different when buying batteries?

Your review on these is clearly intended to show your displeasure, but for me, it actually reinforces my belief that I am getting better value, and my strategy is working. When I find something that doesn't work with the ones I have, then maybe I will spend the extra, but so far I haven't.

Excuse me? I may have unlimited income and can afford luxury cars and food? Far from it.

I think you are reading slightly too much into my thoughts on these cells and it sounds like I have really ruffled your feathers for some bizarre reason.

I have stated a couple of times that while mine do not hold the same capacity as eneloops; for most jobs the 7dayshop cells will work fine.

I am pleased they work well for you and that you are happy with them. £8 is quite a lot of money and I'd rather not spend money on another couple of batches of 7dayshop cells to determine if I have a dud batch. Am I going to bin the cells I currently have? No, of course not. They can still be used in other devices. But for the purpose that I want to use them for the 7dayshop cells aren't up to the job of powering my headlamp at full power.

Every time these cells pop up a direct comparison is draw against them to Sanyo Eneloops my findings are that they aren't great under a high load and have a reduced capacity compared to Eneloops/Hybrio. Because of this *I* personally would rather spend an extra couple of pound on cells which have a proven track record especially for an important devices such as a torch. Now, that hardly reads that I have loads of money to chuck around.. does it.

I don't instantly think that because something is more expensive that it will be better, I speak as I find. I haven't got a problem with cheaper brands. If they work well and are cheaper then it is win win. I have already seen the Lidl battery thread, and I plan to go down to Lidl to check out these LSD cells they have on offer.

you findings are similarly basic? no i dont think so - yours have no real backing at all.
steve has gone to the effort of finding out the capacity of 8 different goodtogo cells and many eneloop cells and also found that one delivers high power to a light and one doesn't.
where are your findings?
a small sample size was used but why should he use more just to satisfy your craving for a technical review when you wont do it yourself.
whilst you stuck your head out of the door and found it was raining, steve stuck his head out of the door and measured the rainfall a number of times finding which was the wettest and was able to tell how long the rain was likely to last.
