    So I finally gave up on the random brand rechargeable AAs and ordered four sets of Eneloops ($9 + free shipping from Amazon). Just wondering what kind of usage numbers (recycle times, number of pops) you're getting in your flashes? Current setup is three 285HVs and a 420ex, though the Eneloops will be primarily for the 285s. Also, what are you guys using to charge them? Thanks. Any other pointers or observations would be great.

    Do you know what the specs are on it? I have a few random AA chargers laying around but I dunno how well they'll work on the Eneloops.

    They have the entire kit for 28.99. Comes with 4 spot charger, 8 AAs, 4 AAAs, and 2 adapters to use the batteries in devices that take Ds and Cs.
