Great when newly charged,
This review is from: Sony NH-AA-B4EN Cycle Energy High Capacity AA Size 4-pc Blister Pack (2500mAh) (Electronics)
I have owned these for about four months. Mostly they are used in a DSLR camera.
I find that, when freshly charged, they are superb, giving lots of life and fast performance in the DSLR, which relies heavily on good battery power. They also charge fine, with no memory problems, in the Sony charger.
However, these batteries lose power when not in use. Most AAA rechargeables do, of course. But there are a new sort on the market that minimize the power drain when not in use. I have tried some, the eneloops.
They are just plain better than these Sony batteries. Eneloops fire right up and last longer even when they have not been in use for days or weeks. I find this makes a big difference because I don't have to recharge every time I start out a day with my camera.
Hope you find this helpful.

Thanks. I just got a blinking light on the Sony Nimh batteries I purchased 3.5 years ago, which seems too short a lifespan for these batteries, considering that they haven't been heavily used. I'll definitely try the eneloops next.

Agreed with Emily, got this two years ago and used on two trips. Batteries dies. I will try others brand.

Never have I had any battery that looses it charge from not being used as fast as these
