Detail: For my testing, I used two battery analyzers, both Powerex MAHA MHC9000. All batteries weee used on each analyzer in turn. Before any battery usage, all batteries were put through the new battery conditioning routine, using the slowest possible charge and discharge rates (200 mAh charge, 100 mAh discharge) with the analyzer set to the batteries advertised capacity, 900 mAh. This routine took days to complete. After this, each battery was discharged (slow rate). The mAh ratings was recorded for each battery. Following this, each battery was charged (slow rate), allowed to rest for 24 hours and then discharged (slow rate). This cycle was done three times for each battery.
Results: After initial break-in and initial discharge, the batteries averaged 678 mAh, low 534 mAh, high 711 mAh. After the second discharge: average 685 mAh, low 632 mAh, high 734 mAh. After the third discharge: average 686 mAh, low 634 mAh, high 732 mAh.
Conclusion: Typical, but disappointing. These batteries range from actual capacity of 70% of advertised to 81% of advertised. In real-world usage (3 batteries used in my GPS Photo Tracker), the batteries behaved far inferior to Costco Kirkland brand AAA batteries (the really cheap ones). Said another way, my photo tracker turned itself off after less than 8 hours of use, 3 separate times.
The very high quality standard disposable (non-rechargeable) Lithium batteries that can be purchased from Energizer and Duracell have set my expectations too high for these Sony batteries to compete with. They simply do not last very long after a charge. You use it, and within a very short time, it's dead.
An example: My wireless mouse. I use it all day long. With a standard, non-rechargeable Lithium-type Energizer, I could use the same battery for 2 to 3 weeks or more. Using the Sony rechargeable batteries, I find I need to change batteries every 5 days or so. Fortunately, with a rechargeable, I walk over to the charger, and swap it out (single battery mouse) but there is a noticeable difference in the life of the battery.
NO REAL COMPLAINTS
Do they work? Yes. Have I had any trouble? No. Unfortunately, these batteries do not last long enough for heavy-use devices, such as digital cameras. They are fine for TV remotes or a wireless mouse perhaps, and other "light-duty" chores. I wish this was not the case, because I use my digital camera constantly, but rechargeable batteries burn of all their energy in as little as 30 to 45 minutes of (moderate) use, where a Lithium disposable might have lasted 3 to 4 hours. Obviously time varies from one set to another.
My suggestion: Buy plenty of cells, and keep the charger handy, so you can rotate the batteries out with use. Their individual charges appear to last 25-30% of the life of a disposable premium Lithium battery, so you'll probably be changing them 3 to 4 times more frequently.Read more ›
The monitor is on up to six hours a day and a set of batteries lasts about a week.
People say that in digital cameras Ni-Mh last longer than regular alkalines, but this was not the case for me. A set of Duracell alkalines lasted a little longer than these and a set of ultra batteries lasted about 10 days. I guess that this is because the monitor is a low-drain device and batteries seem to behave differently when used in a low-drain or a high-drain device like flash or digital camera.
Anyway, rechargable are always a better choice, I am starting to save money already.
The eneloop's will last 10-11 hours in my MP3, but the Sony's last anywhere from 8 minutes to 50 minutes. We've charged them 4 times with the same result. If the vendor will not take them back, we will throw them out, it's just too much hassle to change batteries in the middle of exercising, etc. all the time. Our charger is a Panasonic BQ-390, which is an excellent smart charger.
Don't waste your time with these Sony batteries.
