    I just wanted to post that Wal Mart sells a Eneloop knocks off made by Kodak. Well they are not knock offs. Kodak makes a low discharge NiMH battery also. They dont hold the charge for as long as Eneloop. Eneloop claims 85% of charge after 1 year of storage and Kodak is 70-75%. If you are storing your batteries that long, you are not taking enough pictars.

    They are like 50% cheaper than eneloops and you can pick them up right away. I paid 8.44 a 4 pack and they work great so far.

    Just thought I would let those know who wanted a cheaper alternative

    do people pay more than ~8 for a 4 pack of eneloops? I bought 10 sets of 4 on clearance at CC a while back for somewhere in the 5/6 range each...

    I've had such good experience with the eneloops that i'd have a hard time switching to anything else....

    they are not available here. My only option is to purchase online and after shipping it always averages to about 12 bucks per 4 pack.

    i use rayovak hybrid rechargables. they are available locally cheap enough and are 2100mah. from what i've read, they have ~90% of the charge of an eneloop 6 months after being charged. it drops off faster after that, but i'm pretty sure i can handle charging my batteries every 6 months. :o
