Has anyone used these particular hybrios? The price is ok; but the only review on Play says they are total rubbish.

I've got the lower capicity ones in my camera and they last ages, I think they prefer a slower trickle charge over 8/12 hours rather than a 1 hour hi speed charge.

I bought them a few months ago, They are rubbish! Don't buy them!
My son put them in his wii remote a few weeks after i recharged them and they were almost flat, If you want rechargable batteries, get the standard Ni Mh type, 2000mah or better.

Cheers, I wanted them for the wii so I'll look for something else! Thanks.

These don't seem to manage well in many cameras. I am sure they would be hopeless for cordless mice etc. - but they are a good idea for radios or other low power requirement items because they hold the charge better over time.

IMO You're right about the slow charge being best (I've never risked a fast charge). If you've used the same it's likely the guy in the Play review had a dodgy batch as he says "These batteries arrived almost totally flat, with insuffienent charge to power my romote control hand set." - he claims grotty performance from a part-charge and says "even when fully charged they only had the power of a half drained conventional battery"

I've had no problems at all with the hybio types I've got - but I've not tried any with a capacity lower than 2100mah....

I've used Kodak and Hybrio pre-charged 2100mah batteries and both have been excellent in a range of gear (digital cameras, remote control cars, torches etc.). The kodaks were on offer a few weeks back at Amazon £7.98 delivered for 8 - I really didn't expect too much but they are just as good as my older Hybios. The Hybrios must have had at least 20 recharges each - In the camera (Fuji s800fd) I have filled a 4Gb card on one set, but probably get 300+ shots in a normal mix and maybe only 100 when using all flash.

These lower capacity ones are best avoided from what you and others are saying...

The price has gone up from £5.99 to £6.99 delivered, but for 8 batteries it's still a better deal.

I've used them and not had any problems. You just have to bear in mind that 1600 mAh is a smaller capacity than 2100 mAh and decide if they meet your needs.

"Quite high capacity for Hybrios."

No, they are the old ones.
2100mah is the capacity of the current ones.

There is nothing so special about Hybrio as a brand, and www.Vapextech.co.uk have 2100mah ones for less than this, delivered, and are widely used by posters on this site

Couldn't disagree more.It isn't the technology that is the problem, perhaps the brand, and the fact they are so low powered. The 1600mah ones are feeble, but the current 2100mah new technology range are better in almost all situations - in practice they perform better than that rating would imply.

If you MUST have higher capacity, then do get the standard NiMH type, 2600 to 2900 mah, but only for situations where you use that power up quickly. In other situations such as where you leave a camera for weeks at a time without using it, and expect it still to be working when you come back to it, then the New Technology type will be far better.

I thought I was having problems with batteries running flat too, and had chucked some out until I got a new charger, and found some I thought were poor were much better than they had been when new!
