    I've just got some of the sanyo eneloop batteries. Quite expensive but seem good. They're supposed to hold their charge when not in use much better than standard rechargable batteries, they say it'll still have 85% after a year. They also come pre charged and ready to use.

    I've got some like that. They're branded IMEDION by a company called MAHA. They really do last ages. I found that my old rechargables started to lose charge fast after a few days of not being used.

    I have an Energiser fan-cooling charger.

    The batteries are cooled while charging and therefore charge as close to 100% as possible - warmer batteries lose charge v. quickly, which is why storing them in a freezer keeps 'em so healthy.

    They stay charged for WEEKS - much better than the cheapo charger I had which superheated the batteries and made them dead unbelievably quickly.

    Are the IMEDION batteries chargeable in a standard Energizer charger? I'm guessing it doesn't matter.

    I'm really not sure. Drop them a line:

    You're probably better off getting a better charger anyway, as it will prolong the life of the batteries and prevent over-heating/damage.

    The 7dayshop own brand Eneloop-like batteries might be a good option and cheaper:

    The Eneloops also cheaper than the iMedions.

    Just got some Eneloops. Haven't used them yet, but supposedly they are the best rechargeables in the market.

    Will report back in a few months. They are intended for 360 and Wiimote use.

    It should work. Can't imagine you can get rechargeable AA batteries that cannot be charged by a regular charger (ie. a charger for 1.2 Volts NiMH batteries, mAh rating does not matter). Highly unlikely you will have other batteries.

    Lidl got their own version of these back in store a week or two back, and my store at least still has loads of them - iirc they're under a fiver for four, so a similar price, and higher capacity. I've been using a set in my bike lights for best part of a year and not had to change them yet - they're better than alkalines.

    Not got a Wii though, still I'd expect them to work there well too.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    I cannot comment on others but have always found them excellent, they also hold a charge well when not in use.

    I picked up half a dozen packs of Eneloops for work purposes recently and didn't want to butcher them in my shitty Energizer chargers so I did a bit of research and went for the BL700 smart battery charger. Meant to be a winning combo!

    It's pricey at 32 but has a bundle of charging, testing and refreshing options, can do single batteries individually with their own charge rate etc. Also, Eneloops do seem to hold their charge as advertised too, very handy.
