The best rechargeables by a long way
on 26 February 2013
I have used the AA versions of these for a few years now in my underwater flash & torches, but I needed some AAAs to replace my diminishing stock of alkaline batteries. These AAAs have just the same qualities as their big brothers - they last a longer time than competitors, but most importantly, they keep their charge for an extremely long time. This means when I go on holiday for example, I can charge a whole load of them far in advance and be very confident that they will still last when I come to use them. For this specific item, I like the hard plastic box that they come in because it can store 5 of the AAAs or 4 of the AAs which is very handy for keeping charged batteries apart from empties - I put charged batteries in the box facing "in" (ie the hinge) and empties go in facing "out" (ie the catch to open) - very simple to work out which to use or charge next!
Honestly, it seems a silly thing to get excited about but I absolutely love these batteries and I always extol their virtues to other photographers/divers I meet !
