Love em or hate em, I use em and I think a lot of us do. Just wanted to pass on a decent deal I saw at our local Costco the other day on the Eneloop rechargeables







I have been using a set of these for about a year along with some Duracell's and for the price they work about as well as anything I have found even though they are slightly lower MAH than the Duracells. I tend to cycle through my batteries to eventually retire the oldest/most used so I picked up another pack and thought I would pass this along.

That is a good deal. I bought 2 packs of those eneloops there and been wanting to pick up a third.

For people in Belgium and around; http://samenkopen.net/action_products/832142/141209
Ony 7.50 for a package of 4 batteries!! And a lot cheaper if you buy 16 or more.
Bought all my eneloops there, 100% safe (because these prizes are unbelievable), he even tells how he gets them this cheap: he buys them directly from the factory in packages of 1000+ and only makes them 5% more expensive for his efford of getting them here.

I remember reading that the blue ones are more for things that don't draw a lot of power, and will retain their charge a little longer. The white ones (and the no-longer-available glitter & chocolate) supposedly are more powerful, but lose their charge slightly quicker.

I don't have the link to back it up, or I'd post it here. But my personal experience has been that I use the blue ones in my PW, and have never been able to drain them fully even after using them to trigger reception-hall lighting for 3 weddings.

These say on them they are minimum 1900mah and the best I could find on a quick look is the white ones are rated at 2000mah. All I know is I have this set, use em all the time and have no complaints. =)

Just picked up some yesterday. I think both blue and white versions are rated minimum 1900mAh. I usually use an SD-9 battery pack with my SB-900s, and 12 Eneloops in that setup last all day.
