4 x AA NiMh+ Rechargeable Batteries in case NEW Technology "Instant Batteries"

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
We sell AA 2700mAh capacity batteries which are the best you can buy but even
they slowly drain down without being in any apliance.

The NEW Instant batteries do not drain like that, if you charge a
pack up for your radio and do not use it for 10 weeks it will still be
ready to play, where as the old Ni-MH type would be very low on capacity.

3. If you want to recharge your batteries after some use you only charge what you
have used and not wasted extra time and cost on charging batteries that have just
let their power drain away.

4. Your normal Ni-MH charger will be fine no new charger needed.

Best Uses for new type Batteries are...

ANY application were you are not going to use all capacity up within 1 week.

Think of it this way its like having the best non rechargeable battery you can
buy but you can recharge it!

Thanks for looking and i hope you enjoy the new battery revolution.

Look on 7DayShop - I just bought 16x 2900 for £20. I've had 2100 from 7DayShop in the past and still going fine.

These are rubbish ones - you want the Eneloop batteries which I believe are now owned by Panasonic (used to be Sanyo)

These are the best in the business for me, I have 16 and about 2 dozen of the 7dayshop ones.
However, I'm not convinced this is any cheaper than usual?

Great batteries but normal price. Don't waste the extra money on Eneloop - these are the best you can get.

+1 IMHO nearly as good as the latest Eneloops and less than 2/3 of the price - although this is Vapextech's usual price!
As with all low self discharge batteries, using a *good* intelligent charger is a must!

I've had 16 of these Vapextech LSD AA for the past few years and they are excellent..... but it is the usual price
Although surprisingly their AAA ones are crap and are no better than bog standard rechargables that lose their charge when not used.

I notice they've upped the capacity of these to 2700, the ones I have are 2500....
It was upping the capacity that went wrong with the AAA. When they were 850mAh they were great..... but when I bought some more they were 950mAh, they weren't holding their charge nowhere near as well.

talking total rubbish fella, you haven't got a clue what you are on about, do some research next time!

Been after some Vapextech batteries for awhile now waiting for a sale of some sort, have always known they are generally considered the best.

My mistake, they still are 2500....... its the standard non lsd rechargeables that are 2700.

Not sure which part of his post you think has Bigfootpete talking rubbish.

I can confirm that, from my experience, the Eneloop's are more reliable - they're all still going strong while a few of the Vapextech ones have died.

And Panasonic now produce the Eneloop's, not Sanyo.

Its pretty obvious that they were jumping on the fact he called the Vapextech 'rubbish ones'

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

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

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

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.
