It should be noted that there are a number of battery makers that are now introducing 1600 mAh product, including Eveready. I have three sets-of-four size AA NiMH batteries - one set each of Eveready's 1200 mAh, and Kodak's 1450 & 1600 mAh. The difference in 'staying power' for the 1600's is far superior to both of the lesser rated batteries. Anyway, the lesson here is ... don't buy any NiMH battery that's rated at less than 1600 mAh. (Also, when you get a battery charger, be sure to get one that will recharge your NiMH's in five hours or less. Three hour chargers are best, and don't even think about eight hour chargers. Trust me, I know!)
These batteries outlast the high-end Duracells in my digital camera by 4 to 5 times! True! I don't know why, but in my Nikon Coolpix 950, Duracells drain completely in about 30-40 minutes while these babies keep on going. I had mistakenly purchased a set of Ray-o-Vac rechargeable batteries, and these Kodak's put 'em to shame.
This is the product to get. Don't waste your time looking at anything less...
Because there is some confusion about 1450 mA-hr vs. 1600 mA-hr and about the availability of chargers, etc., I ordered batteries from Amazon and from kodak.com, just to compare. The kodak site said the batteries were on back order (now how can THAT be, when you order direct from the manufacturer? Besides, kodak.com had listed them as "in stock.") so I tried to cancel the order, but it turned out kodak ignored my cancellation email and shipped the batteries the next day anyway. They were 1600 mA-hr. Amazon was also shipped in two days. They are also 1600 mA-hr, but with Amazon you pay no sales tax.
These batteries are actually made in Japan. I have no idea if the batteries have changed, or just the ratings on the outside but it is likely that the 1450 mA-hr inventories have been sold out and that the batteries you order will be 1600 mA-hr. We use them in everything: cars, flashlights, cameras, keyboards, you get the idea. I don't even know what I did with the AC adapter for my camera; the batteries are so good and so reliable, I don't even use it.
Figuring that regular batteries cost about $1.25, that these last longer than regular batteries (in high drain devices) and will recharge about 500 times, I figure these batteries will save you about $1000 each over their lifetime. That's a five star purchase, no matter how you look at it.
Consumer Reports has not yet tested the Kodak batteries. They really only do the big battery manufacturers: Duracell, Energizer, Ray-o-Vac. So I suppose you have to trust the Amazon reviews as your best source of information for now.Read more ›
The batteries I just received are 1700 mAh, to go along with the 1600 and 1450's I purchased over the past several years. Everyone has held the charge and performed as expected. I had some Olympus rechargeable batteries, they could not hold the charge the same way the Kodak's. Love the Olympus cameras, but not their batteries. They found their way to the re-cylers.
I highly recommend the Kodak rechargeable batteries for all AA applications.
