no idea mate - $7 each sounds like a lot of money for a AA battery - I usually look at ebay and if they sell at that price they must be ok. See if you can get them elsewhere...





(46.95 + 8.50p/h)/8 = $6.95

id say thats a fair price..



1) there sanyo cells, sanyo make good batts

2) there 2300nimh's, so oyu should see them last a while in a TX..

3) ive seen no name brand 2100 nimh's for $8 EACH

The best performing, best value and easiest to get AA NiMHs that I've found are the silver-n-green Energizers. They're up to 2100mAh in their latest batch, make sure you choose the "Made in Japan" ones.


Buy them for ~$10/pr at supermarkets. Heck, even my local Post Office has 'em.


They pump out great current, totally reliable (haven't had a dead one yet) and they charge up to capacity.


For $5 ea, why would I bother with crappy no-name cells??

NiMH cells do not need and should not be discharged to 0V ever, you'll wreck them by flatlining them like that.


Just charge them from whereever they are.


Also store them fully charged; NiMH will self-discharge over time so if you start storing them discharged they will flatten further and won't revive.
