Very good rechargeable batteries.,
This review is from: eneloop AA 1800 cycle, Ni-MH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries, 4 Pack (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
Sanyo Eneloop low self-discharge batteries are justly praised. I bought two dozen pieces each of the AA and AAA sizes. My Kodak Easyshare C182 digital camera uses a pair of AA batteries. A freshly charged pair of Eneloops enabled me to take 250 flash pictures before the low-battery warning automatically shut the camera off. I took the photos one after another, counting them. The flash remained bright to the last photo.
When charging an Eneloop AA or AAA battery, charge it until the voltage measures 1.41 volts. No higher. You can push the voltage higher, but this harms the battery's overall life. The voltage will sink back to 1.38 volts within a day or so, but thereafter the self-discharge will become much slower.

Use a voltmeter or a multimeter set to measure volts. You put the probes on each of the two battery terminals while the instrument is turned on.
