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

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

amazon.co.uk/gp/…V0C

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.

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.

LOL! Can someone get a face palm on this guy?

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.

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.

Sorry my bad. That link was for the AAA 800mah eneloops.

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.

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

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.

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!

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 :-)

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.
