What this means is that they hold their charge while in storage. Typical rechargables self-discharge rather quickly. My old style are almost always dead when I need them. But these hold most of their charge after a year in storage. This may not matter in devices that eat batteries like I eat Smarties, but in remote controls, clocks, doorbells, flashlights, etc, this long storage life is an absolute must.
WHAT YOU GET: You get 8 AA and sadly, only 2 AAA, a dual channel charger, and some C and D battery adapters. ///edit- unnecessary information removed/// The C and D "batteries" are ADAPTERS that use the AA cells.
ADAPTERS: I agree with the only 2-star rating, billmill was it? that the adapters are not perfect. This is not necessarily the adapters fault, but in my experience, is instead due to the huge variety in battery compartments. For example, my Maglite 3D uses a HUGE spring on the negative terminal. The end of this spring/coil is open, and so large that the AA battery by itself will actually fit inside the spring. I simply slipped a penny inside the coil, to cap that huge hole. Now it works with the adapters. Not the best solution, but it worked well for that one application. In my wireless door-bell, the negative terminals are small, normal sized springs and all is well.
Overall, this is my third type of adapter, and it is my favorite, and the best design/highest quality, plus the batteries are top notch.Read more ›
The bonus in this kit are the C and D cell spacers. You put the charged AA battery in these spacers and install them into items that use C or D cell batteries and I can assure you that equipment will operate even better than using a C or D alkaline Energizer. Having "rechargeable C/D batteries" really extends the usable value of this kit and the included pair of AAA batteries are perfect for my penlight flashlights. I'm getting another kit to give as a Christmas gift this year.
I tried both the C and D adapters, and I couldn't get them to work in ANY device. I tried flashlights, maglites, portable lanterns, and a kid's toy. It looked like there was never enough pressure between the contacts with the adapters + batteries installed. I tried all the batteries and all the adapters in the kit, with no luck. The adapter fits are just poorly executed. Save yourself some cash if you're interested in these batteries, and buy the batteries alone, not in this kit.
The newer Eneloops:
* Have 1500 charge cycles (instead of 1000)
* Retain 85% capacity after one year, 80% after two, and 75% capacity after three years
* Are better in cold temperatures... now rated for down to -20°C instead of -10°C.
* Are pre-charged with solar energy (instead of regular energy) in Japan
* AA: Have minimum 1900 mAh (same as old ones)
* AAA: Have minimum 750 mAh (same as old ones)
* Are MADE IN JAPAN (same as old ones)
Each have their advantages, so it really depends on what YOU need them for. Alkalines are great inexpensive batteries with a smaller amount of power (if you've ever used a digital camera with some disposable AA's, you've probably seen just how quick they go!) - the great thing is you can get a ~50 pack for the price of 4 rechargables - you can also pick them up anywhere when you're on-the-go. Lithiums are more expensive but have more power - they'll last quite a bit longer, but are still disposable. If you just need a crazy amount of batteries for a one-time use, these are usually the way to go (imagine buying 50 rechargables for a days worth of usage).
The rechargables are great as they have a lot more power than alkalines, and can be, well.. recharged! If you can get by on however many you have, recharge them at night and use them the next day.. these are great. A lot of the newer ones have a high amount of power storage (2700mAH), and for certain devices (like camera flashes) it'll actually speed them up quite a bit over what you'll get from alkalines. Problem is, they drain rather quickly even when not in use (so in the case of a digital camera, if you charge the batteries, take some photos, set the camera down for a couple weeks before you need it again.. the batteries will be much lower in terms of their capacity).
The new LSD batteries like the eneloops retain most of their charge, so 2 weeks later when you pick up the camera it still has most of that power in it. The downside is that they're usually a lower capacity (like 1900mAH).Read more ›
