Rechargeable Batteries

I am currently using POWEREX AA 2700 NIMH batteries in my scanners. I have been using these for years with good results. I also used similar Sanyo’s which lasted quite awhile.

However, it seems to me that the POWEREX batteries that I bought in the last two years don’t perform as well as the older ones.

I have seen a couple of charger/analyzers on Amazon that may help my power situation.

1. Powerex MH-C9000 $80.49
2. BT-C2400 $26.96

Does anyone know if these things really work as advertised? I would like to resurrect my current crop of batteries if possible. The BT-C2400 price is more appealing.

Comments and suggestions are welcome.

Thanks,

Bobby

I love the Powerex chargers. Not as impressed with the batteries.

I prefer the Sony Eneloop cells.

That would be SANYO Eneloop, 
but for the last few years they have been branded Panasonic because Matsushita bought up Sanyo. 
I have been using Sanyo Eneloop cells for nearly ten years and I'm happy with them. 
The Panasonics are probably even better.

Thank you Joe and David.

what an amazing coincidence that I receive an email from Amazon hawking the Panasonic eneloop batteries. 😎

I will order some.

thanks.

Hi All, another positive testimonial for the Eneloop cells here.  I had a set for my BCD436HP and they were great.  I switched to the highest capacity Ni-MH Amazon branded batteries and the Eneloops were noticeably better.  

When these Amazon cells flame out for good I will definitely be getting another set of the Eneloops...
