5.0 out of 5 stars Good value and performance, 2 Aug. 2013
By 
This review is from: AmazonBasics AAA Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries 800 mAh [Pack of 12] (Packaging may vary) (Electronics)
Like at least one other reviewer I have mainly been using Sanyo Eneloop rechargeables to replace my disposable AAA batteries very successfully. However, I thought I'd try these Amazon Basic versions because I've had some very positive experiences with various items in the Amazon Basics range to date such as cables, shredders and DVD drives.

These AAA cells were, on delivery, close to fully charged (my battery condition meter showed 90% of full charge). Their output of 800 mAh puts them towards the lower reaches of the capacity stakes but, to be fair, these are "Basics" - a value rather than premium line. Also, in terms of pricing they are good value, to get 12 in the pack at the current price is very competitive. If anything goes wrong there's a good chance Amazon will honour the warranty (and be around to do so).

Physically these Chinese sourced cells look well made and are marked in such a way that the positive terminal is fairly obvious - the green ring on the casing also helps if your sight isn't too good. I do agree with another reviewer it would have been good if Amazon marketed a matching charger. The charger I use is the Technoline BL-700 intelligent charger which, although not cheap, takes a lot of the guesswork out things. I've seen a number of well reviewed cheaper intelligent chargers on Amazon including one by Lloydtron. I find these batteries recharge in about 4/5 hours using my charger.

In terms of performance I've found these Amazon Basic AAA cells to be fine - they last an acceptable time in the appliances I've tried them in and have a good immunity to temperature changes. Some rechargeables I've used in things like alarms and trail cameras have difficulty in functioning in the cold - that's not so with these.

Overall, a generously sized pack of rechargeable batteries from a vendor with sufficient clout to offer genuine assurances around quality, performance and safety. Recommended.
