NiMH batteries, ratings?

Recommended Posts

Is there an unbiased site somewhere that actually tests rechargable batteries?


I've com across this company claiming 2200mAh rechargables, which should last longer than the 1800's I've been using.


BUT... does anyone have a reference/review site somewhere that shows they really perform as advertised?

I just bought a 10 pack of 2000mAh NoMEM batteries at Fry's for 17.99 (I think that's what it was.) That's less that $2 per battery. Not bad. I've been using the 1800mAh batteries of this brand and have been happy with them.

Also be sure to check out Rayovac's 1-hour NiMH/NiCd charger. Just picked one up, and it's very handy! Even comes with a cigarette lighter adapter for the car.


I have the same one, model PS4. Walmart carries them for about $25

Powerex is made by MAHA Energy, one of the best battery makers. Here is a good source for battery information, run a search on what your looking for: http://www.candlepowerforums.com/ubbthreads/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=UBB6&Number=229960&page=1&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1


Re: Rayovac 1hour


These chargers will literally destroy a rachargeable battery. They run very hot and run an extremely high current through the battery to acheive it's 1hour claim. This destroys the battery. It will no be fully charged and severely reduce it's service life, stay away from it.


You can have the highest rated battery, but if you have a cheapy $20 charger from Walmart, your not getting a complete charge.
