Currently own some Sanyo eneloop AA batteries and was about to purchase some of the latest generation of Panasonic when someone posted about these Vapextech on another thread. They seem excellent value. Will wait to see if they drop in price during January sales before ordering.
You can get 60 for 68.50 off their site either order the 2900 and add a note to the order or give them a ring

Bigfootpete - I think you may be owed an apology....;)

Ewwww, creep much.oO

That post implied Vapextech are rubbish, they are not, simple enough for you?

Well why did 2 out of 8 or the Vapextech die and yet none of my Eneloop batteries have? Seems pretty simple to me

You must work for the Office of National Statistics with such a vast amount of sample data (_;)

Do I not get an apology :p

Have you used both brands and had problems with the Eneloops? Or are we just going on the strength of your opinion?

Had dispatch confirmation so I'll let you know when I get them
So what did you get?
Just checked amazon another seller is selling 2 x 4 AA eneloop batteries it specifies also 1 x 8 so eight batteries they describe the boxed weight as 118 grams

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B0096BBV0C

The seller of the 4 x 4 AAA boxed weight is 458 grams so either it's a hell of a lot of packaging or it is 16 AAA batteries

I have my fingers crossed LOL
Had dispatch confirmation so I'll let you know when I get them
I bought some of these about a year ago and they are nowhere as good as Eneloop batteries. 4 of them refuse to charge at all whatever charger I try. The 4 that still work lose charge fairly quickly and I have to recharge them after a few months if not used.
All in all I will never buy Vapextech again. About six months ago I bought some Eneloop and they seem to last longer and hold charge a lot longer.
Vapextech used to be good, but since upping the mAh they aren't anymore. I think they must have got a different supplier. They lose charge when not used almost as bad as ordinary rechargables.
These AAA are worse than the AA they do..... but I don't even rate the AA anymore.

This has to be so cold, and you get the same amount of batteries as the other post, but its more expensive. wtf
What other post?
Listed same quanty, same price price for AAA

marknewham
I think he is stupidly not realising one is for AAA and the other is for AA
Stupid is, if you pay the same price for them. The capacity is generally less on a AAA battery
I guess some people have more money than sense

But im not doing that, and why wouldnt you want me to be doing that action?
slightly confused by your words. I was assume your saying oh no, but then i might be wrong.

As for the deal, i was just sayng that other post had the same amount of batteries for he triple AAA size, but its less power. So really you are getting allot less value.
I personally think have a look on ebay. I pick up recharagbles for hardly anything. Just I had to wait a long time.

I used to Buy Vapextech, but since they upped the capacity, 2500 now with the AA, they aren't as good as they used to be. they don't hold the charge for as long now.
The vapextech AAA are really bad now.

I wont be buying them anymore, and will buy Eneloops when I need more.

Eneloop, Panasonic evolta and Contour are all better! Reason is they have 75/85% charge after 3 years and 70% after 5 years! Not 70% after 12 months. I have also heard of a lot more cell failures with Vapex compared to the Sanyo/Panasonic's.

lidl have "tronic" ready to use batteries for £3 (4 pack AA) and are as good as these as far as i can see so far.

edit: they're lower rated at 2100 but there's no noticeable difference

Good to know; probably not as good but a better deal for most applications based on price....

These aren't Eneloop type batteries and are better for rapid drain use like camera flashes. Not sure why all the comparisons to Eneloops.

The Vapextech low discharge equivalent to the Eneloop - the Instant range is nominally higher powered than the Eneloops. My last set were rated at 2500mAh.

Very good price for these so voting hot but personally i prefer the eneloops.

The NEW eneloops are only 40p more at amazon.

LOL. They are 800mah.
This is normal price and not a special deal of any sort

Ive bought some of their batteries before and they're the only Ni-Mh's I've ever had fail on me. Maybe I just got a dodgy batch but I wont be buying any more - I'll stick with the Sanyo Eneloops

Vapex are by far the best batteries I've used the Eneloops are rubbish in comparision.

These are great....2900 mAH. 16 pack for £16.99 or 4 pack for £5.59 delivered. (7dayshop)

The majority of others who commented do not appear to agree with you.

The 7dayshop batteries are not LSD, which these Vapextech ones are.

Note that 1 year ago, these Vapextech batteries received a very favourable response here on HUKD

bought 2 packs of these 3/4 in both packs flat the other only 400mah. not in the same league at the AAA.
Aldi batteries were decent but they have abandoned them, no doubt because it is a case of once bought never needed again.

I would assume they will be back as one off specials.
This isn't a deal... its the regular price. And these batteries were covered in Orvilles thread about Vapextech where he's done extensive testing of both the AA and AAA.

Don't expect those values to last because they will not!!
I was getting similar values after spending a lot of time burning them in initially and the capacity very quickly lowered until I was regularly recharging them. I stopped using them and the AA's and moved to Eneloops which work far better IMO.

Im also using 4 vapextech AA's which I purchased 18 months ago, and I have just done a refresh cycle on all 4. The capacities are 2430, 2430, 2410, 2430, i.e. they are identical to when I purchased them. No loss at all and look at how similar they are only 20 mah between all 4, so I have to suggest they are very good quality, i doubt even Eneloop are as similar in capacity between 4 batteries. And if you see my earlier post no 720 you will see how accurate they were when i did a refresh on them last year.

Re the eneloop they only hold 1900-2000 mah and are twice the price. The fact that they claim to hold 70% charger after 5 years is irrelevant for virtually everyone, if one does not use a battery for 5 years then they don’t need them.

I can’t comment on their long-term reliability of the AAA but I will be surprised if they tuned out to be duds

i purchase 8 of the Vapextech AAA LSD rated at 950mah. put them through the refresh mode on my Technoline BC700 and every battery came up OVER the stated value, cant comment on how long they hole their charge but in terms of capacity these are superb, out of the 8 batteries, lowest was 970mah, the highest was 1025mah, as below using the refresh cycle. well done vapextech

Nothing special here.

Better value at 7 Day Shop for batteries


Ignorance is bliss.Vapex are far superior in every way to the 7dayshop ones and I have both.
I'll give these a go, i have some eneloop ones which have been great, but would like to try these guys aswell. Could anyone recommend a good charger for these? after a new 'smart' one that isnt one of those 1 hour charge models cause they're supposed to ruin your batteries quick
Ordered some more yesterday, these are up there with the best. I recall researching these when I bought my first lot and u need to be careful when comparing. I give these a 10/10. Heat.

I've always bought cheap 7dayshop "Good2Go" but the Vapex are better quality, albeit more expensive.

Vapextech... I swear by them.

Big fan of their 2900 mAh AAs I use them in by 550EX Canon flash and I get plenty of mileage out of them.

They have their own website and an Ebay store as well so shop around as the prices often vary.
Ditto. The only slow discharge ones I have are 7dayshop ones and I've been happy enough with them .... compared to normal rechargeables.

So I'll be interested to see if these ones seem noticeably better. For all the extra they cost it seems like a no-lose purchase to me. The guy who did the test certainly seems to know what he's on about and it looked pretty thorough to me!

I'd don't think the 7dayshop ones are terrible or anything, just that these are better!
sancheez
Although I already have a set of the 7dayshop ones, and have no issues with them .... this test - http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=12087 - suggests that the vapextech ones are top of the pile (and 7dayshop ones are the bottom).

So for the extra two quid, I thought I'd give these ones a go.

(Found the link to that test in a previous thread for these batteries on here)

That's an interesting test, thanks for the link.
I have used both types of batteries from 7dayshop but never compared to another brand. I've been happy with the performsnce of the Good-to-Go batteries but it's Good-to-Know that there are better brand for little more money :-)

I use this one:

http://www.7dayshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=777_3&products_id=105029]

IMO the important things to consider when buying a charger are:
* Intelligent Delta V (charges until full, rather than for a set time).
* Charging in singles (charge 1, 2, 3, or 4 at a time, no need to charge pairs).
* Flexibility (charges from mains, car, or USB).


Sorry for being useless with these things, but does the charger you list have all of these requirements?


Yes, it does.

I find that using these batteries quit awkward to remove them from my xbox360 controller,it's as if thier slightly thicher because they are vey snug in the controller. They are great batteries though

I have exactly the same problem. I recently bought some high capacity AA's for my xbox controllers and they dont fit! I think I could try and force it but I dont want to risk cracking the plastic of the battery holder!
These are brilliant batteries - I bought some after the first time they were listed on HUKD and ended up stocking up on them. No more complaints about loss of connection from Xbox360 controllers from the family and they need charging far less than the previous Duracell rechargeables I had which were quite old. Highly recommended though. I also invested in a Duracell CEF22 battery charger as it has individual charging indicators and I found some of the old batteries had reached their end of their recharge cycle. The vapextech came top in a recharge test as well whe compared to the other next gen brands.

I had the same prob with my xbox controller and these batteries are the BEST.

I always have probs of losing signal from xbox controller but is do to BAD batteries. U get BABY’s and all ur probs are gone in a sec.

I allways get this on from time to time kid’s toys. I got 8 this Friday.

Also great customer services.

They sent wrong batteries on Wednesday, i called on Thursday and there was another "claudio" so we got mixed the orders she told me sorry and on Friday i had my batteries and a pre paid envelope to send the return batteries.

All thumbs UP for a great top notch customer service.
