My Maglite just got lighter.
on July 8, 2012
Well, I am a huge fan of the Sanyo eneloop batteries. I use them for everything. When I found out that they made adaptors for the AA batteries, I wanted to check them out immediately.
The first major selling feature of this product is adaptability. I no longer need to spend hundreds of dollars rotating in multiple batteries for all my gear. All i need are some rechargeable batteries and these handy adaptors and I have thousands of hours out of 4 AA batteries.
Second is cost savings. Why on earth would anyone buy another non-rechargable battery? I can get thousands of recharges out of one battery. If that battery is now adaptable to multiple different sizes, you've save additional bucks!
The next major advantage is weight savings! 4 of these with the Eneloop AA's and your Maglite will will weigh half as much as it used to. Use it in radios for emergency weather information too! Now your radio doesn't weigh as much.
Keep a dozen of the AA's and a dozen AAA's on hand and you can pretty much power anything in the event you need them.
Lightweight compared to actual batteries.
Plastic could break easy, but I have had these for about a year now with no issue.
