With all the pre-charged batteries from different manufacturers out there now, there is no need for 1-time use alkaline batteries anymore.
Using my Lacrosee BC-700 battery charge/test function, the 4 "AA" batteries performed as follows:
Battery 1 = 2,200 mAh
Battery 2 = 2,140 mAh
Battery 3 = 2,170 mAh
Battery 4 = 2,190 mAh
(See picture I took on customers' submitted images)
Straight from the box, the batteries show remaining voltages of 1.31V (see pic above). All packs more juice compared to its rated capacity of 2000 mAh, which is comparable to the capacities of Eneloops and Duracell.
I have been using pre-charged batteries for everything now, from toys, digital cameras, clocks, to remote controls.
Several months ago, I purchased several packs of both AAs and AAAs, due I use a lot of them mainly for my girls' toys. Due the great reviews, I was expecting some better than average batteries.
At first, the batteries took a good charge but after some cycles, some stopped working. My main charger is a Lacrosse, so I tried all the options without success. I tried then with several other chargers, but nothing.
Initially, I assumed: "Well... Perhaps one or two could be defective.... This could be normal...", but now, several months after the purchase, I still use the Energizer batteries I was planning to replace, and almost all the Amazon batteries are gone.
These cells are marked as being manufactured in September 2011. I truly appreciate Amazon going into different product venues, and I like their Amazon Basics packaging. It is simple, easy to open, and environmentally friendly. That said, I purchased these batteries based on several reviews raving about these being as good as Eneloops based on what a La Crosse charger told the user about its capacity.
I bought a La Crosse BC-700 Alpha charger for this specific purpose, and as an engineer, I find the capacity to be somewhat misleading for most consumers. A high capacity NiMH cell tends to self-discharge at a faster rate (arbitrarily, about 1800 mAH or higher for AAs, and anything over about 600-700 mAH for AAAs). But it will handle the demands of high power devices better, which include flashlights, digital cameras, wireless headsets, etc... A lower capacity NiMH cell tends to self-discharge at a slower rate. I've tested and reviewed the Rayovac precharged batteries from Wal-Mart, and some Sanyo Eneloops I purchased from Amazon in 2010. Both of those brands had excellent quality and slow self-discharge (easily lasts 12 months) but the capacities aren't as high as some people like.
The Amazon Basics precharged batteries are rated at 800 mAH for AAAs, and 2000 mAH for AAs. Using my La Crosse BC-700, I found this to be true with little deviation. However, I am here to review the self-discharge rate to better inform potential consumers. I used the BC-700 to fully charge each cell using a 200 mA charge current as recommended by Amazon. I waited until the next day to record the initial voltages.
Out of the 16 cells I purchased, only 1 set of 4 AAAs was even close to 1.4 VDC (1.Read more ›
Right out of the box the 8 batteries measured between 1.29 to 1.33 and the initial mAh was 1930 to 1963 with the same production date as Nlee (March 2011) and almost a month later from Nlee's purchase.
I split the batteries between La Crosse Technology BC-9009 and the Maha Powerex Wizard One. Charge/test of the BC-9009 yielded an average of 2162 and on the MH-C9000 using the "break-in" setting they yielded an average of 2227.
They are reasonably priced, good charge right out of the box, and they are true to its ratings. What else can you ask for?
