same retailer, 4 for £6.29
That said, I would personally still go for the Vapextech new technology "Instant" ones:
http://www.vapextech.co.uk/acatalog/High_Power_Consumer_Batteries.html which are cheaper still (£5.40 or 8 for 10.50 delivered); and perform really well.

another vote for vapextech, I have been buying these 'no name' batteries for about 5 years now, and they have lasted better than my uniross and panasonic batteries of similar age.

From the site you listed, for the "instant" batteries::


AA 4 x NiMh+ Rechargeable Batteries NEW Technology

What's New?

1. The batteries are ready to use as soon as you have removed them from their packing.
2. They will stay ready for use for over a year without the need to recharge.

Type AA Nimh+ (any nimh charger will work)


So I assume the same applies to the ones you want to buy.

Can you use these with a UniRoss charger?

Excellent, thanks very much

I too have gone for the http://www.vapextech.co.uk/acatalog/...Batteries.html ones, not sure who to give heat too and that kind of stuff, so a 'thanks' to the OP and thread contributors will have to suffice from me :thumbsup:

Regs, Shagggy

can someone tell me if i can use these for Wii and PS3. i have never really understood what you can use rechargeable batteries in.
Thanks

Another vote here for Vapextech Instants. Good price and no problems in the few months I have had them.

As to charger I would recommend one of these http://www.batterylogic.co.uk/technoline/technoline-i-charger.asp. Bit expensive but does really seem to look after the batteries so I think mine will pay for itself soon enough.

Rechargeable batteries are categorised by their storage capacity. A 2100mAh rechargeable is not going to last as long, per charge, as one that is rated at 2800mAh. These “Instant”, Eneloop”, “Infinium” or whatever they market them as batteries have a maximum rated capacity of only 2100mAh and yet costs more. Why? Their only claim to fame is that they’ll retain their charge longer than the traditional ones. If you like to store your rechargeables one year in advance in a nuclear-bomb proof safe, then “Instant”, “Eneloop”, “Infinium”, “Da Clever One”, are definitely your pick.

In practice, other than their rated capacities, the true superiority of a battery is in their chemical mix. Sanyo & Panasonic are the “Honest Johns” here [and don’t trust a “normal-priced” Sony – they are the, “Screwing through fashion”, Chosen Few boyz] and the rest might be as good depending on how much more they’ll like to save/make – how they spec to their OEMs – and you can’t tell – Uniross, for example, is for the typical UK blind & blinded bat worshipper of the name game - like “Royalty”, say. There are still many who believed that “28 day delivery” is reasonable and that next day delivery is a miracle of human ingenuity as well as believing that a human can be of royal essence other than through “creativity”. All OEMs play the, “Mix the spec and even the clever dickies will start licking your boot” game. You can’t tell. It could be from batch-to-batch where the savings are made and they can come from different factories/manufacturers to fool the, “Same as far as I can tell”, brigade.

In summary, buy the highest capacity for the cheapest but with instinctual caution and take your chance or buy the highest capacity with a “Made-in-Japan” Sanyo/Panasonic brand. As for “Eneloop” & Co., get them when their rated capacities are back to the norm – unless you are one of those who actually built a nuclear shelter during the cold war days in the back garden and bought into the “dirty commie”-&-“honest capitalist” ploy. If so, may one borrow your prized collection of True Blu-Ray-ed James Bonds – pleasezz.

Yes the same but these are usually more expensive than the Hybrios .

Without a shadow of a doubt I have these and they last far, far longer than any of my other 'standard' rechargeables i.e, vapextech and famearts(mine are 2600s). Not noticed much difference between the Eneloops and the Panasonic Infiniums I have.

Eneloops are my favourite - they make me happy about my AAs. ;-)

I've been using a set of these for my Xbox 360 pad and Wiimote for quite a while now. Absolutely fantastic batteries, by far the best I've ever used. I've just ordered another 3 packs, it'd be rude not too at this price. Heat & Rep added.

Edit: Despite being only 2000MaH these last waaaay longer than any other rechargable battery I have used and that includes a fair amount of batteries rated at 2700mah. I can only conclude that either these are just made better or is more likely the rating on most rechargable batteries is BS. I have some 2700mah rated energizers that last around 6-7 hours in the Xbox 360 pad. So far eneloop seem to be lasting 22-23 hours.
#25
These are rated 2000mah but you can trust that rating - as opposed to the Chinese made batteries that make it up as they go along. Even if you use high drain devices you'll find these better than any other NiMH batteries - unless perhaps the Sanyo/Sony/Energizer (they're actually all the same) 2500mah rechargables.
#26
Thanks for the help everyone, i went for the Vapextech Instants., the enloops were tempting but due to the large amount, the price and reviews on the Vapextech was too much to beat, need to find a charger now.

Thank you for the recommendation VDisillusioned, but i cant afford it just yet

Actually the charge in NiMH batteries deteriorates pretty fast when left doing nothing (they have a half life of a few weeks). Maximum capacity is great for something like a video camera or remote controlled car that you expect to run through batteries in a few hours use, but if they are going in something like a portable radio or a Wii controller then these new technology batteries will actually last longer because they don't loose the charge that they have over time.

Got the above 'intelligent' charger and it's fantastic, the extra cost over cheap chargers is soon recovered as your cells will last significantly longer as they are not damaged.

I have never fast charged batteries, and apart from a handful of individual dodgy cells, nearly all Lidl ones, failing batteries for me has newer been an issue over YEARS!

I would suggest a lot less than that for an intelligent charger if anyone is looking for one though in THIS thread, it also charges more cells at once, and more choice of cells too:

http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=333722 at £12.70 although in some areas, if you are lucky they have it packed differently and it is only £7.50 - a possible STEAL!

Great price for awesome batteries, ordered a pack of each.

Already have 8 AA's that I use for different things. :-D
#31
Forgive my ignorance, but is it not a good idea to use a Uniross Sprint 15 minute fast charger with these then?

Oh,hot by the way
#32
I didn't 'get' the eneloop/hybrio batteries at first, until someone summarized it as follows:
These batteries are better in any situation where they are charged less frequently than every 2 weeks.
Basically a "regular" 2800mAh AA will have less than 2000mAh of charge at 2 weeks with no use.

I have also read on some LED forums that these hybrio batteries are better at delivering a high current, so that LED torches will be brightest with these type, even though they won't last as long.

Of course both these 'facts' may be completely untrue, but has converted me to be a happy user of them!

Maybe its time I bought in a whole load of batteries from different manufacturers and did a proper "battery olympics" to put some science behind my "faith"? hmmmm

Very good deal. I bought two sets of the AA (one bundled with the cheapy charger), and one set of AAA ( same price).

Much as I'd like to get a Maha C9000 Charger (available and shipped for just under £50 from Maplins - which is pretty much as cheap as I've found), I don't recharge batteries often enough to justify getting it (it is seen as the daddy of all current battery chargers though).

This is the most comprehensive battery comparison page that I've found: http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?t=79302

It does not include the latest 2900mAh Vapextech so it's hard to tell how those performs, although based on the 2500mAh tested, it seems that they inflate their performances a little. Eneloop aside, Sanyo battery tend to be one of the best (that said, you might be hard pressed to find 4 of their 2700mAh battery for under £6).

As you'll see in the page I've linked, the Eneloop are not the best for everything. It really depends what you want to use it for. Things like clocks, remote controls, wireless keyboard etc. are definitely better with Eneloop batteries than standard high capacity batteries. That said, Alkaline batteries will also last ages for those applications, and they can sometime be bought for cheap (personally, I don't like to throw away used batteries for environmental consideration, and that's one reason I decide to go Eneloop for those applications). On the other side of the spectrum, devices that can drain batteries in a matter of hours would be better served with good quality high capacity rechargeable. And then a lot of things fall somewhere in between.

Pretty much agreed, it's nice to hear someone who has worked it out themselves in pretty much the same way as I see it. I have been trying to get these sort of points over for a few weeks on threads on here, and a surprisingly small number seem to have sussed it for some reason!
#35
Of course the key is finding a "good quality high capacity rechargeable". I'm always amazed (well not really I suppose :roll: ) at the number who will vote a deal like this cold and rave about the 2900mah batteries they've found in a supermarket made God knows where that cost 2 quid for 4. The only brand I really trust would be Sanyo who post the specs online ( http://www.eneloop.info/fileadmin/EDITORS/ENELOOP/DATA_SHEETS/Datasheet_-_HR-3UTG.pdf ) - the rating offered by many other brands seems pure Alice in Wonderland.

If you read the thread on Infinium batteries, when a Which test was quoted, (http://www.which.co.uk/reviews-ns/batteries/compare-batteries/index.jsp) then the Sanyo Eneloop ones were NOT particularly well up in the running at all! The Sanyo brand that did do well was the standard type, but of course has the drawback of losing charge! At the time of the test the Eneloop ones were dearer than other brands which rated better. Unfortunately the list of batteries was a little restricted.

We keep saying it, but there are a good number of users on here that have put the Vapextech ones of both types though long use, and for the price they perform really well, but the call of the brand name shouts louder :-(
(Oddly enough Sanyo never was any sort of premium brand!)
#37
With respect I would not give much credence to the Which? test. Especially as it fails to recognise that Duracell Rechargeable Accu ActiveCharge 2000mah are in fact rebadged Sanyo Eneloops.

But it it true that GP, Panasonic Infinium and Uniross Hybrio are all good batteries too.

.


In which case either those provided by Sanyo to Duracell are actually slightly inferior, or it is simply normal range of variation of the product, and luck prevailed for their own badged product!

I'm sure it will work fine with an adapter.
