|UN0335||Great price, not so great batteries though. Too bad the don't have LSD NiZN batteries, they would be great. These batteries lose too much capacity from self discharge.|

Yeah, I bought the 4 AA charger combo. They last about a week in a Wii remote. Normal Duracell batteries would last 3 months. Of course I don't play every day. When they sit for a little while they drain out. I bought new a Duracell combo pack with a charger and 4 AA batteries. The Duracell batteries are doing better with the high-drain devices. Maybe I should use the PowerGenix in low-drain things. The question remains weather or not they will still have a charge when you really need them.
I have read that the quick charge (PowerGenix) batteries have a shorter life span, whereas the 8 hour charge batteries will cycle thousands of times. I'll believe THAT when I see it! -bvb

I picked these up today and the charger is saw was the quick charger it was not the one hour charger. I will go look again now because that would be a hot deal thanks OP.

I'm with DKTVPN. I picked up a 4-pack plus charger around the holidays and I've had nothing but great experiences with them. And yes, you have to use their charger, they won't work with your existing NiMH/LSD chargers.
Thanks for the heads up OP, I could use some more. I'll have to make a trip tonight.

- The front door light with moving sensor using 3 of them: it's eating the Duracell batteries also Energizer rechargeable LSD style.
- The evil 8" wall clock made in China drinking the juice from battery like beer. Duracell lasts for about over a month and then it's loosing time like crazy with at least 5 minutes per day.

|SDRebel||I purchased batteries only hoping I could use a regualr charger and even though they seem to be charged by one of my chargers (the others didn't like them) but they got discharged right away...|

|Mr. Harley||I purchased just the batteries on a SD and have been waiting for a charger. Indications they are very good for a flash, though you'll want to carry mulitple sets. You also may want to mix with Nimh's to get the extra power of the NiZn but bringing the voltage down a little, Nimh's tend to be slightly low and these can be so high as to burn out certain electronics that assume 1.5v.|
