or try the "Good to Go" ones, found here ..

http://www.7dayshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=777_3&products_id=107341

You can charge these up and have them ready to use as / when you need them, they don't lose their charge.

Both very good batteries, but, although lower power, I am only using "Good-to-Go" now, because they last for ages in the camera when not in use.

People always praise 7dayshop batteries on here but I wasn't very impressed with the Good to Go ones I bought a bit back, perhaps I got a duff batch. The ones I got arrived with very little charge in them, even though they're supposed to be ready to use, and according to my charger almost all of the 8 I bought held significantly less than 2100mAh, most were around about 1900mAh after I'd charged them (my charger's a fancy one that tells you have much charge it's put in, it discharges them first so I think it's pretty accurate). After a few cycles some seem to have dropped to only holding about 1200mAh on a full charge. But as I said, perhaps I got a bad batch.

I don't think "Good to Go" batteries actually come already charged ... but maybe I am wrong.

I bought some a few months ago and had a couple of problems. I emailed 7day shop and replacements were sent out.

The first line of the description is: "7dayshop Good TO GO batteries arrive pre-charged and ready to use." X)
I think the thing is the price is so cheap because the quality varies quite a bit, some are as good as the brand names like Eneloops while others are nowhere near.

Indeed! My" Good 2 Go" set arrived flat, but, have been working well since.

The GP Recyko+ batteries are a good buy.
From forum discussions and tests they are just as good as the Eneloops.

There is a special offer on. Buy a 4 pack AA (2100mAh)and get 2 free. £6.75

Keeps 85% charge at 12months.

I bought a pack and they are quite heavy.
Thinking of binning my old ni-mh batteries.

If you want a longer charge look for the Sanyo Eneloop XX AA batteries.
(2500mAH) £12.99 for 4 so are pricey.

They are the latest hybrids from Sanyo.

The first set of 7-day rechargeables lasted about a 18 months - which wasnt too bad as they got charged and drained at least twice a week.

Subsequent ones haven't been half as good. The old ones were disposed of when the new ones arrived so they're not mixed up. Each set of four has a certain number of bands and different coloured tape around them just in case the charged ones got mixed up with the discharged ones - easy to do at a gig in the dark - and they lasted less than a year. I buy sixteen at a time and the last two lots haven't been so good.
#10
I have the good to go and they are brill, they hold their charge for ages, plus they are not oversized like the ordinary 7 day shop ones on this post, so they fit in our electric toothbrushes, whereas all other rechargeables I have had are too tight.
#11
You can re-charge alkaline batteries.
#12
Would the good to go batteries work in this charger? Or do you need a specific one? If so which one please! :)

Yes JRC, I have that exact charger and use it with the Good 2 Go batteries.

would these batteries work in a 15min charger? will the good2go ones work in it too?

(my charger's a fancy one that tells you have much charge it's put in, it discharges them first so I think it's pretty accurate).

What charger do you have?

Have have got three different ones but since each battery never seems to discharge at the same rate, when charging the charger will switch off when it detects a full charge on any battery, which can leave some of them with little charge in.

I have a 30 minute quick charger that seems to charge each channel because the lights switch off on each battery at different times, but I have found that it knackers the batteries giving them shorter lifespans.
#16
This is another good charger, which has been mentioned on HUKD a few times, it was £5.25 a couple of weeks ago

I have this one. It charges each battery individually, so it doesn't have the problem you've mentioned. I stick it in the discharge mode at 100mA then when the battery is empty it automatically charges them at 200mA, and when it's full it will tell you how much charge it's put in. It offers faster charging rates too if you prefer, but as you said faster charging tends to reduce the lifespan. It's a little bit complicated to use, compared to the simpler types where you just stick the batteries in and wait for the lights to change colour, but it gives you much more control over how you charge them. It's quite pricey though, it's about £40 with shipping here (you have to scroll down a bit), and £44 with 4 batteries here. I'm not sure if they're the best prices though, I haven't really looked.

These are the GP batteries. 4+2 free.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/GP-Batteries-GP210AAHCBE4-2BB-2P6-Rechargeable/dp/B002PCMJVO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1292008548&sr=8-1

But I got mine from Cell Pack Solutions Ltd using Amazon and they were : £6.75 inc. free delivery. The above is only 25p more though.

The Sanyo Eneloop XX can be found here:

Make sure they say "New Generation" in the top left corner. The picture shows 3 batteries, they are not stacked 2x3 but are 6x1 if that makes sense. (Always Ready)

Using a quick charger usually wrecks rechargeable batteries before too long

i saw some rechargable batteries in poundland yesturday and also battery chargers but had to stop myself from getting them as i had a feeling they might not be the besty quality, even for a pound it aint worth having your camera die on you at that crucial moment and by the time you have swapped the batteries its to late she's pulled them up oO
#26
she's pulled them up

He said.
LOL
#27
I got these earlier this year and after 2 charges they wouldn't take another charge
#28
There's only a handful of battery manufacturers.

Looks like 7day no brand batteries are failed batteries from someone else.

There's sites that test batteries and GP, Panasonic and Sanyo seem to come out on top.

I bought the GP based on tests and also buy 4+2 free.

There is nothing wrong with these. I bought two packs from 7dayshop 8 months ago for around the same price and they are perfectly fine. They last ages as they should do with such a high capacity.
