That changes it completely for me, well spotted. The number of appliances I find that use AAAs instead of AAs is limited.

The title also needs a bit of work - it doesn't mention whether it's AAs, AAs etc. and doesn't even mention the number of batteries included in the deal :oops:

EDIT: I'm confused! Does this come with all 8 batteries?!

there is diffrence between Ni-Mh and these ones.

^^OK. Are they much better though and worth the extra cost?
They hold charge for longer when not used. I'm replacing 2000mAh batteries after 4 years of use, been fine for me.

I find myself digging this up to re-use quite often :)

For people that don't know about these Hybrios, they're like regular alkaline AAs (Duracel, Energiser etc.) that you can charge! They don't lose their charge in a matter of days like regular rechargeable (NiMH) batteries but instead last weeks, only loosing charge very, very slowly, and they also come pre-charged in the pack. The ability to better hold their charge is what really separates them from NiMH batteries. The downside is they can "only" be charged 500 or so times but I personally don't see that being a problem.

"Economical and eco-friendly, a Hybrio battery is the equivalent of 500 disposable batteries."

They can be charged in any regular battery charger, which is a question many people ask.

I think many people just don't know that these batteries are different, never mind realising the benefits, as they're not well marketed. I use them in my Sony compact camera and in my Nikon SB500 flash for my DSLR and they are perfect for such applications as these devices can go days or weeks without use. With these batteries you don't have to plan in advance to charge your batteries the night before - you can just charge them after every use and know they will still be alive when you next use them.

Thanks PoisonJam.
I had 2 sets of batteries for my camera so never had a problem until recently, but can see definate benfits of Hybrio in Wii controllers and the like.
May try them next time.
