The only answer anyone can give to such a question is yes.

That depends on how you're using them. If you need them to stay charged and ready for use, buy the lower capacity 'instant' batteries. If you're charging and using immediately in high-drain situations go for the high capacity batteries.

2100mAh is still a considerable capacity considering that 1000mAh AA cells were considered 'high capacity' not too many years ago.

I can vouch for Vapextech. Have used their products for some years now in my camera flash guns. Switched to 'instant' batteries so I can leave them charged and ready to go immediately if required. Good flash recycle times and tons of shots from each set.

You can't compare those two because they are different types of batteries. Ordinary HiNiM batteries loose capacity over time and discharge themselves even they aren't used.

Sanyo Eneloop and Vortex batteries (although slightly lower capacity of 2000/2100mA will keep their charge to up to 12 months when not used.

So id you want to cover one event every six months and make sure you charge your batteries before shooting day, you can use the ordinary recheargable. But if your taking photos is more sporadic and you need to attent parties at short notice, the Eneloop/Vortex are better for you.

What if you have a 15 minute sprint charger, then whats better

Make sure you state the difference as some people will get confused. The batteries you've linked to are standard rechargeables. The batteries for this deal are long shelf-life rechargeables

important difference

I will stick with instants now that ive used them, basic tests in a battery hungry sony camera resulted in high capacity rechargeables being emptied far quicker than the instants. Plus you can leave the instants for months and go back to them and still have them charged up instead of having to recharge your high capacity ones!

Still depends on what you need the batteries for, instant ones are more useful e.g. in xbox/wii controllers that aren't used often, in point-and-shoot cameras where you usually just decide to start taking a few photos spur of the moment then put it back for another month, "emergency chargers" for mobile phones/etc, wireless mouse not used much, walkie talkies.

Also, all of the 15 minute chargers I'm aware of charge to 80% in 15 mins, then do the last bit over the next 45 mins or so. It's just not safe/possible to fully charge Ni-mh batteries so fast otherwise.

I swap batteries around devices all the time so trying to buy only instant ones now, much more convenient for only a little bit smaller capacity

Out of interest how old were the high capacity ones though?
I thought the same, used a camera with 2500mAh AA's then 2100mAh hybrio instant ones, the hybrios lasted much longer even though I thought the standard 2500's were working fine (only charged a couple of times over last few years). Recently got some new 2500's though and they are lasting much longer, haven't tested but almost certainly as long as the hybrios if not longer.

So would these ones be best for my Salt and Pepper grinders, i'm guessing at the ones linked here, rather then the topic ones?

I get proper lost with all these different type of batteries on offer! :thumbsup:

Hi, thanks for these... they look perfect.
I'm fairly new to the world of rechargeables but from what i've read so far i think these eneloop batteries are probably just what i'm after. Beats using standard one use batteries in wiimotes/ps3guitar hero equip etc.

Does anyone know of a good charger to use thse with? Not really after the cheapest thing out there.. wouldn't mind spending a bit extra for something a bit more featured and faster charge. I'd use the batteries in wiimotes/gh equip as already stated.
Thanks!!

Are these rechargeable using a standard charger or do you need to buy a specific eneloop charger? Thanks alot

They use a standard charger, I got a charger from lidl for about £12 and seems to do the job.

most people do not recommend the fast chargers as they can damage the batteries, no doubt a google will give lots more info on fast chargers.

Got a set of these when they were on offer at Argos for £3.99. Brilliant batteries.

Think I've answered my own question and I was wrong and the initial batteries would be better for my usage, occasionally use items

Agreed, still a better bet - cheaper, slightly higher capacity, although in practice both will work well.

Price now is £5.40 for 4 though, you need to buy them in 8's for £10.50 to get them at that price.

That's the way it "feels" to me (and why I won't be buying any more of the standard NiMH ones), but that wasn't based on any tests, just use in practice.

How comes this is hot? It has been on that price for ages!

Well, at least it makes it yet another example of the total absence of any use for the heat score! :-(

No difference - looks like you didn't look properly at the web page. The green ones, 4th item down, are hybrid ones just like the ones on this thread (although they now seem to cost £5.40).

Hot great batteries. The sooner standard batteries are banned the better.

eneloops get my vote.

I have a canon powershot A710 and regular rechargeables were a PITA; I can carry several sets of eneloops and they're still nice and fresh even after a couple of months in my camera bag, unlike the old standard NiMH I used before.

Get my vote, I use the sony equilette in my camera, good that I can leave them in my camera for months on end and not have to worry about them discharging. Worth the extra cost compared to normal rechargables, when you need them in an emergency
