I dunno, we just buy rechargables at Sams's or else get the lithium eveready battery. They last a long time in electrical equiptment.

Check out http://www.BatteryJunction.com for some of the highest output NiMh, at good prices.

As of this post, they carry AA NiMH Batteries up tp 2700mAH. (I think 2800mAH is about the largest capacity battery at the moment.)

I received my powerex AA 2700 batteries and 4 cell charger. Well I just went back to the website and they have new and better(8 cell) charger on sale for less than what I'd paid [:(]

As an update to this thread and my original post above, here is my a copy of my recent post in the GroundSpeak forums:

In this GroundSpeak forum thread GizmoGuy411 wrote:I have been using the same Tenergy 2600mAh NiMH rechargeables from BatteryJunction.com for over three years now with great performance.
Tenergy AA: http://www.batteryjunction.com/1po20aaba.html

They also have some Titanium 2700mAh batteries that are billed as the "Worlds Best Battery".
Titanium AA: http://www.batteryjunction.com/1po20aaba.html

I think I may pick up some of these since my Tenergy batteries are starting to get a bit old, and I also use them in a Mini-Mag LED flashlight, so they have been through many usage cycles.

The differences reported here on the performance of various brands of batteries, my well be in how they were charged and cared for. BatteryJunction.com has some great advice on the care and feeding of your rechargeables! Follow their advice and whatever brand you use should give you their best performance.
