Cheap for 2500mah.

These are good batteries, got a few packs couple of years ago - still going strong

cheers been waiting for cheap battery posting fora while

I've had bad experiences with these. I bought loads of them a few years ago with good intentions and was very disappointed. I found that their ability to hold charge is poor. Leave them unused for a week or two and they've faded to virtually nothing. I got a pack of Energizer rechargeables more recently and they were way better.

These are crap compared to decent branded NiNM. I purchased several packs from 7DayShop about 6-9 months ago. When testing with my Maha C9000 tester they only hold around 1600MaH of charge. After letting them stand for two weeks they are completely dead.

Spend a bit more on Sanyo Eneloop LSD (or similar Low Self Discharge) batterires. Fameart are very poor.

edit: I also purchased Fameart AAA 1000MaH batteries at the same time and these were just as poor. They only managed 600MaH on a full charge and were binned soon after.

Don't trust unbranded/unknown-brand battery charge capacities. You (unfortunately) usually get what you pay for when it comes to batteries.

Took the words out of my mouth... (although Energizer are nothing special in my experience); but that's the reason I do not buy ANY MORE standard rechargeables - I now only buy "new technology" Eneloop/Recycko/Instants/Hybrio type which although nominally lower power, gets round this problem totally! It mens I never need to buy ANY disposables now.

Currently no need to pay more than £10.50 del for 8xAAs, at Vapextech, but occasional cheaper offers do come along.

If you are one of those rare users that need extra power, and can cope with the quicker loss of charge, then 2500mah is nothing very spectacular at all now anyway... although higher power is invariably dearer.

Really only one word to say about this.
Tripe

If only things were this simple

Agreed some cheapies are poor, some are far from from poor; and over-advertised brands are often expensive for that reason only!

I agree that being unknown does not necessarily mean rubbish. Batteries such as GP Recyko are largely unknown but offer superb perfomance.

However, Fameart are also largely unknown but they really are pants.

]Here is a test I performed on GP Recyko's at about the same time I got the crappy Fameart's. Candlepowerforums is about the best resource for battery info.

Energiser are the worst I've bought. The Famearts were not so great either.

I've found maplins cells to be much better than either.

I bought some of these a few weeks ago to use in a home-made bike light and thus far have been pretty pleased with them. Bear in mind though that (due to the high power of the lights) I charge the batteries each time I use the lights, so I have no experience as to how well these retain charge if stored for a week or so.

Isn't this precisely what LEDs are perfect for - far brighter, and use tiny amounts of power, so the batteries would NOT need charging often at all!?

I am using LEDs - 3 x Cree X-RE (Q5) powered from a driver which on high-beam mode draws very approximately 800-1000mA from the battery pack (made from 8 x AAs). Hence I like to recharge after every ride.

That's a surprising amount of drain!

It provides a surprising amount of light:-D
