For those that have used them, what is your take? I am mostly curious for my speed lights, so AA's. I seem to go through batteries quite fast and was wondering if anybody had experience with them and if they like them.

Ever tried eneloops? They´re awesome. After charging, they keep most of the energy for about a year. Available in AA und AAA. I use them for my SB 900, ML3-transmitter, phones and for many other appliances.

A friend stopped using enerloops lately. He is now using mostly Duracell and energiser rechargeables with a powerex smart charger. www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000LQMKDS/ref...ativeASIN=B000LQMKDS

I am considering switching to rechargeables too, will let you know how it goes.

I started with the eneloops but they were hard to get locally, I found a great deal on the duracell pre-charged basically rebranded eneloops and haven't had any issues. The fact that they hold a charge longer than regular rechargeables is a huge plus, and you don't notice the difference in power.

Sanyo Eneloops are great for my speedlight. They keep their charge and the recycling time is amazing.

I got eneloops for all of my equipment that need AA or AAA batts. I got the first gen eneloops and they haven't failed me. Charge it once, and you can go to a lot of events and still have enough charge in the end.

If you go for the eneloops, do get the quick charger ;)

Dude thanks for thesubject.

I was never able to use rechargables in my previous tries, they discharge whenever I wanted to use my equipment again. Thats why when i bought my sb900 seller offered me rechargables and i said noooo.

Now I ordered lithium AA's from ebay. They are always there when I use my flash but ofcourse for the wallet and enviroment I am waiting your suggestions

I use Sanyo Eneloops in my SB700s and haven't had any problems. I purchased mine at Costco and online at depoteco. I was going through so many batteries that rechargeable just made sense.

I absolutely love my Eneloop XX's. These are every bit as good as regular Eneloops, but 2500mah.

I highly recommend them ;)
