    I got them, never looked back. I keep alkalines as spares but rarely have to use them. Eneloops hold their charge well.

    I asked for eneloops for christmas


    Didn't get them :wtc:

    Instead I got a cheap ass Chicago Electric Battery Charger, but no rechargable batteries


    Thanks Pops :ugh:

    Gotta love the parental tries though :love: When they had me send a list of what I was asking for they read it and had the :hsugh: face, like.. What is half of this stuff :)

    eneloop like mentioned......but I also love Powerex. someone did a test with their kid for a science experiment on POTN.

    powerex and eneloop were the top ones

    I bought a 12-pack of Chinese made 2500mAh NiMH batteries for $8.xx shipped from eBay.

    I had a couple bad ones, but the good ones are doing just fine. :dunno:

    I use energizer rechargeables. Eneloops charge holding ability isn't really important to me since batteries get topped off before a client job anyway.

    I tried using Sony 2500amh rechargeables and they suck donkey nuts :ugh: They would lose their charge in no time in my dad's SX110 or my speedlites. :ugh:

    I got some Eneloops and they hold a great charge.
