I am gonna give them a try as well. They are cheaper than the other batteries I have already but they would be way way cheaper if u could pick them up at the local IKEA store. My only way is to order online.. I have eneloop and amazon and both last the same and are rated the same just like the video Gary posted .. this stuff is most interesting...

Unfortunately Daryl, there's no Ikea store within 300klm of here and they don't provide shipping of any goods. There's none for sale online and the ones in the USA dont post down here lol. So I guess some day i might be able to get some to try.

Whilst we are talking about rechargeable batteries, according to the above video it is detrimental to let the battery go below .8 volts. In my opinion they won't run a camera below 1.2v anyway. So my question is if the battery was at say 1.26v do i give it a full charge for the correct length of time or do i just charge it untill it comes up to the voltage it would if it was charged for the recommended time?

I'm not sure of the cut-out voltage for the batteries so I can't answer that. I have been using the Eneloop 1900 mAh batteries and soft charge them in my Powerex MH-801D battery charger. I change my batteries anywhere from 1 - 4 weeks depending on the locations and ease of access. Regardless of how much life is left in them when I return to my sets, they get swapped out. I have used them way down to 30%-40% power left but I don't know what the voltage would have been. I believe in using a good quality charger and let it do its thing. I hope that this somewhat answers your question.

You can also look on Amazon for the Amazon Basics high capacity "AA" batteries. I've just started using them now and am very happy with them. The 3 Japanese NMH cells that may all be made by Panasonic are the Amazon Basics, Ikea Ladda and of course Eneloops. All of the High Capacity cells are all within 100 mAh of each other. The Amazon Basics come in several mAh "AA" cells. Look into the Amazon Basics High Capacity "AA" as an alternative to the Ladda High Capacity "AA", I would be surprised if Amazon wouldn't ship them to you.
