I've used these and they're great. Not a lot more to say!

From their website: "
7dayshop.com Good TO GO batteries arrive pre-charged and ready to use. Additionally they hold their charge for longer times than traditional Ni-Mh rechargeable batteries and can be recharged up to 1,000 times...
7dayshop.com "GOOD TO GO" are the similar/same in technology as Sanyo ENELOOP, Panasonic Infinium, Uniross Hybrio, GP Recyko, Sony Cycle Energy, Duracell Active Charge, Hama Ready 4 Power and Camlink's Ready 2 Go batteries - Only Much Better Value of Course !!
Ni-Mh (nickel metal hydride) type batteries are favoured by demanding users as they are memory free and offer superb performance over traditional Ni-Cad rechargeable and also single-use Alkaline types. These 7dayshop.com batteries are compatible with all good quality chargers and equipment types too.

AAA size batteries are also known as LR3, LR03 and MN2400 "

I would rather buy a couple of them from 99p stores.

This is a good deal, mainly because the 7dayshop batteries are incredibly good. Best batteries I've owned. However you can get 1000mh AAA for the exact same price that aren't these "eco" ones. I'd personally go for them instead.

Either way all the 7dayshop rechargeables are brilliant deals, so people voting cold really don't know what they're on about.

Here's the 1000mh http://www.7dayshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=777_3&products_id=101843

Really? Can you get 800mAh rechargeable AAA HYBRID batteries from these stores? Please do tell, as all I've ever seen are the crappy standard types, and I've never had any joy with them. I've tried a few.

The standard rechargeables are of course a different breed, and no good to keep in your bag / draw ready for use in a months time etc. as they lose their charge. The hybrids have a specific purpose - but yes, if you;re draining - recharging - draining repeatedly, then you may as well go for the higher capacity "standard" rechargeables.

Good spot. Also AA for £3.99. Price reduces if you order 2 sets or more.

Oh dear... you might want to read the description of both batteries before commenting ;)

Okay ignore me, they've changed the description since I bought them. I can assure you though the non green ones hold they're charge just as well as these hybrids.

Sorry not before I commented. I corrected my post. Before I bought some about a month ago the description claimed that they hold 80% of they're charge. The hybrids may be better but they don't have as high a capacity so it's horses for courses really.
#9
Yup - I have both sorts, for different purposes (mainly AA's though) and I can confirm that the hybrids (regardless of brand actually) do hold charge far longer than the standards.

That's fair enough but I've left mine for a month and they've been almost fully charged when used. I have the normal ones not the hybrids. Like I say both are good though I just wouldn't discount either sort.

good deal X)

I use a lot of rechargeable batteries and I have bought both types, regular and hybriod from 7-day shop and other sources.

My findings are that the green (hybriod) batteries hold their charge well over 2-3 months (maybe longer, but that's the longest I tried). Regular rechargeables hold their charge to a maximum of 2 weeks.

I've had a lot of batteries to compare and the 7-day batteries are good value and not different from more expensive brands.

Recommended!

Got quite a few of these, as well as other Low self discharge batteries, and I only wish everything I bought was as good value!
#16
Whilst I have no doubt these are good batteries there have been few tests on them. I saw a comment once saying the capacities on these are quite variable but haven't been able to find it since. As a result I bought branded ones for not a lot more. I know we are not supposed to compare with Ebay but AAA Recyko batteries are available for £3.85 for 4.

They came out pretty well in this test :

This sort of hybrid battery are great - but probably more important is to have a good quality charger to charge them. It makes such a difference.

Well there is plenty of first hand positive experience of these batteries on here. I have no experience of "Recyko" but would not say that your were buying a "big name brand" in going for those over these.

Your charger is important yes, probably more to do with how long the batteries last though - slow chargers are best for your batteries, and don't have to be expensive.

GP Recyko's are as good as Sanyo Eneloops or perhaps even slightly better. I am an RC enthusiast and own lots and lots of rechargeable cells. GP Recyko, Sanyo Eneloop and Uniross Hybrio are all very very good, and they are all top brands.

Check this.

My experience of 7DayShop's own brands has not been so good. I have not used or tested their "ready to go" batteries, but their standard 2900MaH rechargeables were complete rubbish. My Maha tester showed they only held half of the charge they promissed (13-1400 MaH).

My advice is to go with GP, Samsung or Uniross if you can find them at a good price..

I've not "tested" any of my batteries - just got on and used them. I've found the 7ds hybrids to be better than the Hybrios I've got. I have no other brands.

Never had any trouble at all with the 7ds standard types i've bought over many years. Apart from losing them. If brands' your thing... ;)

The reason I mentioned 'brand' was because brands are universal and tend to be tested more. I agree that buying 'brands' can be blind purchasing but in this case there are battery chargers (such as the Maha) which definitively give you the capacities of the charged batteries thus enabling you to compare batteries. The tests in the link I gave show one example of this sort of testing.... and because of the test I decided at the time the Recykos looked the best and were available for about 30p more than the Good To Go ones which I decided was worth it.

To just say "I've found the 7ds hybrids to be better than the Hybrios I've got" is one thing but there is no evidence or examples to back up your claim. If you said they lasted an hour longer than the Hybrios then it would give it more substance. In reality the difference in capacity of one over another is probably going to make little difference anyway I guess.

That's the charger I have. It's great. If you would like to do some comparative tests for us then this charger has great reviews but is twice as much (and only does AA and AAA batteries).

Hmm.. I will chime in with my thoughts on these 7dayshop batteries that keep appearing here on a monthly basis.

I bought a pack of 7dayshops AA (2100 mAh) "GOOD TO GO" batteries and I cycled charged/discharged them 5 times to break them in before testing.

I charged them at 300mAh and then discharged @ 300mAh

Testing all 4 I found that the battery capacity ranged from 1640mAh to 1700mAh. Short by quite a margin of the advertised 2100mAh capacity.

I was going to conduct my own test to see how well they hold their charge over time. But the fact they fail to deliver the advertised capacity to begin with is a shame and I won't bother.

Spend an extra £1 or so on better batteries.

Has anyone tried the Camelion batteries at Maplin? They are down to £3.99 for a pack of four AAs now.

Thanks Searcher2 i would love that charger but i was at my limit with the £15 speedybox.

I've just got the AA rechargables from the 7 Day Shop and am more than happy with them. As long as I can keep batteries charged up for my camera I'm not bothered what make they are.

Bit harsh. Never had any issues with 7ds.

If you shop around, you can get a pack of 6 GP recyko+ for £5.45 with free shipping (from an amazon trader) - that's only 3.6p more per battery for a respected brand, so cold from me, doubly so given 2StepSteve's test results.

And a quick look on froogle finds AAA GP reckyo + for just 88p per battery if you buy two packs of 6 ( = £10.58) and select second class postage (although I've never heard of the seller before) http://www.batterybuddy.co.uk/gp-recyko-aaa-850-mah-12v-ni-mh-rechargeable-batteries-92-p.asp

I would recommend the Uniross hydrio range. I am about to buy some myself from Amazon marketplace £5.65 for 4xAA (seems the be the cheapest I can find). Having said that I don't think you can do wrong with the Unrioss Hydrio or the GP Recyko.. both brands have been put through their paces and their are a number of charts and benchmarks out there on them. Eneloops I like very much and have a set of 10 AAs of them, but they are pricey and other companies are now catching up with them or even doing better as Searcher2 's link tells.

I am not too keen on GP myself I have had experience with their standard 2100mAh NiMH GP batteries. I bought 10 packs of 4xAA in work after a break in period and testing them I wasn't too happy with them at all.. testing shows around 1800mAh capacity.

I will also say that GP's battery chargers are bloody terrible. I also bought 10 units of their 4 bay AA NiMH battery charger I quickly realised it is total crude. It does not terminate the charger 8 times out of 10 resulting in batteries that are so hot that they you could cook eggs on them.

Having said that the GP Recyko batteries do look decent with the benchmarks out there but for me I am steering clear of GP for a while due to the experience I have had with their other products.

I've got a load of Hybrios too (from another offer). They seem fine too... though my charger doesn't have meter on it to see the capacity. You can see from the test results they come out well

http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=6331

There are other tests of course e.g. what capacity they have after 6 months of non-use.

Probably but IMHO a cheap charger is a false economy. The SpeedyBox charger (above) from 7dayshop is a wise investment but the problem is that it never seems to be in stock any more. Lidl had a battery charger on offer a couple of weeks ago (also featured on HotUKDeals and was supposed to be similar to the SPeedyBox) for about £9. There may be one or two knocking around in stores.
