Good Sanyo batteries with even greater capacity than that is nominally specified...
on September 2, 2013
I use Sanyo Eneloop rechargeable batteries a long time (5+ years) and bought this new generation due to 500+ cycles already made on last pack that resulted to a decrease in their capacity.
After its purchase my testing showed that out-of-the box they are charged around 600mAh that is 75% of their rated capacity of 800mAh.
After they are recharged for the first time the average capacity increased around 5% comparing to their nominal capacity (840mAh) and remaining steady on that level for the next several recharging cycles I made.
The batteries are advertised able to be recharged up to 1800 cycles for which it will take several years for the average, even demanding users, in same time not losing more than 70% of their nominal capacity.
For what I've seen so far these batteries can be recommended although it would be impossible for me or most other users to experience abovementioned.
Nevertheless, if you are in need for more than 4 recharging batteries and/or have same problem I had with decreased capacity of older batteries, for this price you will be more than satisfied.
