Rayovac Platinum nickel metal hydride (NiMH) rechargeable batteries are the most economical battery solution for high-drain devices like digital cameras, portable video games, kids toys and wireless gaming accessories.
The Latest Rechargeable Technology
Low Self Discharge: These NiMH batteries have improved charge retention. With Low Self Discharge, the batteries are able to retain 70% to 80% of their full charge at 6 months and 50% to 60% at 12 months. Low Self Discharge batteries are ready when you are! If you have fully charged the batteries but left them in a device, such as a digital camera, or are storing them in a drawer, they will still have 70% to 80% of their full charge after 6 months! Non Low Self Discharge batteries, also called "Standard" NiMH batteries, can only hold 20% of their full charge capacity after 12 months.
Pre-Charged: Rayovac Platinum Rechargeable batteries come pre-charged and ready to use right out of the package. No need to charge them first!
Cycle Life: Rayovac Platinum Rechargeable batteries can be re-charged and re-used over 300 times. This helps both your pocket book and the environment, saving you $100's vs. disposable alkaline or lithium batteries while reducing waste!
High Performance: Rayovac Platinum Rechargeable Batteries give you superior performance in high-drain devices with high mAh capacity ratings and impressive results in digital cameras:
|Rayovac Platinum Rechargeable Battery Cell Size||mAh Capacity Rating|
(mAh = milliampere-hour)
|AA||2100 mAh & 400 photos per charge!|
No "Memory Effect": Unlike Nickel Cadmium (NiCad) rechargeable batteries, Rayovac Platinum NiMH rechargeable batteries do not gradually lose their maximum energy capacity if they are repeatedly recharged after being only partially discharged. Rayovac Platinum NiMH rechargeable batteries can be recharged at any state of discharge without harming the performance of the battery.
Rayovac NiMH Rechargeable batteries make an environmentally smart choice.
They can be charged and reused up to 500 times, producing far less waste than disposable alkaline or lithium.
No Toxic Chemicals
They do not contain the toxic chemicals that are found in older Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) Rechargeables.
Rayovac has partnered with Call2Recycle, giving consumers the ability to recycle NiMH batteries for FREE. There are 30,000 drop-off sites available at municipalities and retailers. Drop-off site locations can be found by calling 1-800-8-BATTERY or visiting http://www.call2recycle.org.
Rayovac Platinum NiMH Rechargeable Batteries are available in AA, AAA, C, D and 9V sizes.
Two chargers are also available, a 5 hour charger for AA and AAA and an overnight charger for AA,AAA, C, D and 9V battery sizes.

First encouraging sign: unlike the case with 'Rayovac 4.0' cells, those 'Platinum' LSD cells actually have their capacity number printed on each cell (2100mAh for AA, 800mAh for AAA).
I measured those Rayovac Platinum AA cells upon arrival using my La Crosse BC-900, and they contain about 87% of their rated capacity. After two discharge/recharge cycles, their average capacity reached 2095mAh. This performance is very consistent with that of the old Rayovac Hybrid AA cells. However, by comparing the shapes of their (+) and (-) terminals, I can tell that the 'Platinum' cells are indeed different from 'Rayovac Hybrid' and 'Rayovac 4.0' cells. (Check out my Customer Image and judge for yourself)
Rayovac claims that the Platinum's charge retention rate is same as previous generation Rayovac LSD cells: 80% after 6 months, 60% after 12 months. In contrast, Sanyo claims the eneloop can retain 85% charge after 12 months. My own testing has shown that this claim is accurate.Read more ›
I picked up a Canon PowerShot SX20 IS 12.1MP Digital Camera with 20x Wide Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.5-inch Articulating LCD at a big box store close to my house recently.
Got it home and I played with the 560mm zoom, and took a ton of pictures and videos. Did a ton of messing around with the settings, and testing different apertures, etc. I had been wanting to play with this camera for a while, so no telling how many times I focused in on subjects while just looking around.
All of this with the same set of these 4 AA batteries with the charge they held out of the package. They are most definitely pre-charged.
After a day, I figured the batteries were probably toast, and threw them in my Energizer 8 Hour Smart charger (also new product at big box store).
They showed 3 hours remaining initially, then were fully charged within 1 hour or so.
The pictures above are accurate.
These are 2100mAh LSD batteries. Perfect (or really good) for Digital Cameras like the SX20 IS.

It says on the package that they will work with any charger designed for NiMH batteries, but i would recommend that you have a charger for NiMH rated to 2000-2500maH. Thats what these batteries are, and it makes no sense to have one rated for less----the batteries wont get a full charge.
They are excellent and the lowest cost per battery (rechargeable) for AA in the 2000 maH range that I could see on Amazon. If there are others I didn't see them but these were on prime and priced right.
It's not necessarily because they have the highest power output or last the longest...it is because they absolutely seem to have the most output and lasting charge of anything this cheap. You simply can't beat the cost versus quality here.
These batteries seem to outlast my energizers on a regular basis and I've decided to only purchase the Rayovacs from now on.
Highly recommend these to anyone and everyone in need of good, long lasting, and reliable AAs.
