These frequently die in my devices and I have to revive them with kitchen tongs.

Same exact problem, same exact battery. Is this an issue with this brand or all rechargeable AA's?

Decided to pull the trigger. When I was on Amazon it said I purchased these last year in a lightning sale for $18. At the time they were $26 normally. It's seems like this is more expensive than they have been in the past, but maybe this is the new price during covid-19 and this is a deal if you need the batteries right now. I decided to wait as I can make due with what I have for the time being.

Wow...I thought you were joking but will have to try.

Have also purchased this brand in the past and they are hit and miss. I'd say 1/3 have been rejected by my charger. Contacting the manufacturer has been futile as they don't respond.

For the naive, like myself, 'Take a pair of rechargeable batteries and hold them together negative pole to negative pole, so that the positive terminals extend out in opposite directions.

Now, take a pair of tongs or a similar metal kitchen tool to connect the two positive terminals together. Hold them this way for about 30 seconds.

Now, put them back in the charger. There is a good chance that they will now accept a charge again."

A cheap dumb charger has also worked for me to revive these cells when they die. Smart chargers seem to expect a certain amount of life left in the cell before it will charge them. Dumb chargers don't seem to care. I'm sure there is a more technical explanation.

Seems like certain brands like this that are "higher capacity" but less reliable. My other batteries like eneloop don't die like this.

This issue is these cheap, low-quality cells that are made in China. Deals can be found on quality batteries if you are patient. I got Energizer kit with 6 AAs, 4 AAAs, some C & D adapters, and a quality charger all for just $15 several months ago. These cells are LSD and are made in Japan (reportedly at the same factory that makes Eneloops). Ikea's normal price of $7 for 4 high capacity (2450mAh) AAs is pretty decent too.

The problem is the brand. Ever seen EBL batteries in a local store? The only made-in-china NiMH cells that I would consider are the Tenergy Centuras.
