I recently picked up a set of Sanyo's Eneloop LSD (low self discharge) NiMH's 2000mAh which are supposed to hold their charge and last longer.  This package includes a charger and 2 sets of "AA" color coded batteries along with 4 "AAA"'s.

Just got them and haven't actually tested them yet.  These LSD's will supplement my Tekkeon MP3450 which gives 15+ hours running with phantom on.  I'm hoping to do a battery run test of the Eneloops when I get a chance though and will post the results for inclusion in the collected battery data chart, just not sure when I'll get to it.

yeah im trying to convince myself to just get a tekkeon and be done with it but i hate carrying around an external battery when i dont really have to. and i love knowing that with the e2 lithiums i have NO worries for a long show but damn they are costly.

Is Doug Oade in Tallahassee these days? I noticed my warm mod is coming from Tallahassee. Just curious.
