This 2900 mAh AA is our very latest and highest capacity Ni-Mh rechargeable battery that we sell. These batteries will offer you the ultimate in both performance and battery life. 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 even single-use Alkaline types. Perfect for all high and low drain devices and especially ideal for digital cameras too. These 7dayshop.com batteries are compatible with many good quality chargers and equipment types.
AA size batteries are also referred to as LR6 and MN1500 sizes

These AA batteries are supplied with a FREE plastic (semi-transparent) storage case, which will help to look after your batteries and also prevent possibly dangerous short-circuits in your pocket or case etc. These cases are modular and can be linked together to provide a larger/longer case. We also sell these cases separately (and in differing colours) to help with battery rotation etc.

Ask yourself why Ni-Mh rechargeable batteries becoming so very popular ?
Because using rechargeable batteries will save you hundreds of £££'s over using "single-use" batteries. They cost only a few pence to re-charge and can be used again and again (up to 1,000 times in fact). Very often they offer better performance than even the best one time use alkaline batteries on the market today. The charging technology has also moved forward and it is now possible to re-charge Ni-Mh batteries in much shorter times than was possible before and a big extra plus is that they are also kinder to the environment as you are not throwing batteries away to landfill sites.

Better to get the "Good to Go" ones from the same shop here

... charge them up, then they are ready to use when you need them.

I'd take the Duracell 2450mAh over both these at £3.99 from the same retailer.

I have tried the good to go ones and from a heavy use point of view they arent up to much, the Duracell ones I can get more than a day out of though. Not sure about the OP's batteries though, but would stick with Duracell as they do last.
#3
:) sounds good x
#4
I've had similar ones from here and the life span is a bit hit and miss.
However, still a good price.
#5
these are ok but have found them not to last as long as some others I have had. Will give the Duracell 2450 that utigers mentions a go and see how I get on,

Completely agree. Not only do they hold their charge much longer, but even though nominally rated at 2100mAh, which is lower than the 2900mAh of these batteries, the superior technology means you effectively get more charge out of them.

In my camera, I used to get under 100 shots out of 2650mAh NiMH Duracells, but over 300 shots of of 2100mAh LSDs and that happened over a short period of time, so it wasn't a case of ther LSDs just lasting longer, they were simply more powerful.

If you also need a charger then this seems a great deal with the eneloop batteries (personally I think the eneloop batteries seem to hold their charge and last longer than other "ready to go" batteries)
#8
These 7 Day Shop brand batteries are just slightly fatter and longer than standard batteries so If you have a RC model handset that takes upto 6/8 batteries they are just hell to fit. Ordered Duracell later on and they fit a treat.

Eh, good to go means they are charged already. And mine were rubbish I wouldnt buy them again.

Anyone have a link for the Duracell ones?

So it seems that different people have different experiences from using their different batteries for different tasks. That sounds the same as just about every rechargeable battery then from all the best known manufacturers.

Agree the batteries are good but the charger is very poor that is bundled in with that deal.

And look which ones get the 'turkey' award :p

I'm not so sure about these 'stay-charged' type batteries, I use Duracell supreme in my cameras that need them (AA 2450) & remotes (AAA 1000) and they last much longer than the '1-2 weeks and they're flat' type of quotes - if mine are not 'ready to go' I just recharge them, no fuss really.

Yeah, I know, I realised that immediately after I posted it....Hardly something to get all worked up over though, is it? Try taking some deep breaths....

Thanks for posting this.

I have bought the 2300 Instant ones direct from Vapex that review, a little bit more (£5.40) but I think worth the punt never the less.

Can't be any worse than the good-to-go I am using now by the looks of it.

Yep, just done the same. Bought 2 packs from their site on Ebay for £5.55 each. Could have saved 30p had I gone to their site direct though.

From experience, 7DayShop 2900mAh rechargeables are rubbish. I own a MAHA battery analiser and the cells I received only retained about 1500mAh, and this also disipated really fast.

These are not true 2900mAh, nowhere new infact.

good find, i went for 8 for £10.50
#25
I like the concept of rechargeable batteries. In practice, they last for a very small proportion of the claimed number of charge/discharge cycles and they also self discharge, so you cannot rely on them being ready when required..
Overall, I suspect I would have been better off spending my entire life using disposables.
#26
like it !!!
#27
Yes good find, I'll try 4, fully charge them, leave 'em unused 6 months and then if they don't take 500 shots on my old Pentax *ist DL, will feel cheated & go back to the normal Duracell 2450.

Actually, on the Vapex site the 8x AAA ' instant' for £7.75 post free seems like a good deal and probably more appropriate for applications such as remote controls and other low-drain devices where you expect the batteries to last a year or so.

In fact, I've convinced myself and ordered 8 of these AAA (950mAh) as well.

Now, for a good charger - that one for sale from Thursday 17th at Lidl (£7.99), wonder if that'll work well with these ..

Indeed, but then this is the benefit of actually reading threads, rather than just voting them hot or cold based on the title.

Yes, Vapextech are good batteries and this thread has brought this to people's attention. That's why we discuss things - you learn new things!

Pointless using rechargables in a remote. Just buy a pack of cheap batteries from poundland.

I agree completely. Your rechargeables will suffer self discharge, probably way in excess of the effect of current drain in use as a remote control.
Rechargeables also seem useless for any occasional use product. For example, if your torch is rarely used, when you do need it, the rechargeables will probably have discharged to the point where there is at best a very weak light, or more likely nothing.
#32
The Lidl Charger reffered to by miriam51 is an excellent buy and is a very cheap
price for an excellent charger for all types of rechargeable batteries
#33
I have a wireless mouse and keyboard as well as the usual remote control units.

I bought the "Good to Go" batteries and have been very please so far.

I use a Duracell charger, which has been mentioned on this site several times. like here Each individual charger point has a LED .. red means charging, green means fully charged.

I hope their charger is a lot better than their batteries, which I shall avoid in future.

No surprise. There are only a handful of manufacturers for these cells, and none of them market a 2900mAh AA cell. Does anybody really think that they select and send the best cells to 7dayshop? :-)

Unfortunately 7dayshop has a long history of misleading, incorrect, and sometimes just plain lying advertising. Which makes this offer ice cold.
