i ran the bottom 3 of those through the "Break In" program on the 9000, and now they are 2094, 2196, and 2219. didnt pay attention to which was which so unsure if the one that was originally 2079 gained anything

Thanks for all the data here, I am still pretty nervous to go out and tape with this stuff. Nothing worse than a half complete tape due to batteries!

Totally agree.  Duracell Pro-Cells and Energizer Lithiums.  Not dealing with trying to recharge batteries doing 5 shows in 6 nights in 3 cities or a multi day festival.

never fear, aint no thing. we are just pushing the bleeding edge in this thread trying to break any batteries we can at home, instead of in the field. while its nice to have a charger that can analyze and match batteries, with quality batteries like the laddas or eneloops its not a major concern, i have some that are many years old and still close to spec

no reason to use alkalines and fill up landfills when NiMH has a flatter curve (esp at high current draw) and higher capacity

(disposable) lithiums have their place when nimh cant get your gear over the finish line. i have one piece of gear i use them in

at the end of the day the more you know your gear the more successful you will be. test test test at home and you'll know exactly what to expect from your batteries in the field

Not to keep beating the dead horse, but there are numerous folks here that have been using rechargeable Eneloops  & the rechargeable  "Ikea Eneloops" for years, without an incident or a missed recording.

hot licks > microphones > recorder



...ball of confusion, that's what the world is today, hey hey...

i recently pulled some laddas that were in storage for the bulk of the pandemic and the first charge was a little lower capacity, but they were back to their 2400 and 2500 spec   after a cycle or two

i personally think chargers like the c9000 are a steal for what they do. im always rockin a headlamp so i tear through about 3 AAAs a day. even if im not doing taping stuff theres always something on the charger, must have saved me thousands of dollars in batteries over the years. the analyze/matching feature is as useful as being able to charge odd numbers of cells on a daily basis

ive been considering upgrading to the analyzer/charger that justme is using, so i can log tests with a computer as well as enter the separate dork rabbithole of 18650 headlamps, so i might be parting with the c9000 in the near future.

ran through 8 of these "amazon basics"and despite being a bit shy of their claimed 2400 capacity, they were amazingly consistent, all 2345-2375

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HZV9WTM

not at all awful capacity for low self discharge.

prices all over the map though

i paid $10 for an 8 pack, which is now $17 for some reason

16 packs for $16 and 24 packs for $20 seem pretty fair

caveat: they do say appearance may vary so perhaps not all batteries sold under that label are same manufacturer. mine are the lime green/dark gray ones, made in china, may 2021

did some loose tests of discharge in storage. about a week to a week and a half after fully charging

the Ansmanns tested above (2590-2645 full) were 2386-2454 after this time (92.5%)
the 2450 Laddas tested above (2442-2456 full) were 2225-2289 after approximately the same time, average 2276 ( 92.9%)

neither are advertised as "low self discharge"

ill test the amazon basics after sitting for a week or so, ill bet they arent far from the laddas. im paying a little better attention and writing down the date i pull them off the charger

I still have Sanyo 1st gen Eneloops in use.  I also have newer Panasonic Eneloops as well as Laddas.  The only "incident" I have ever had was regarding my M-10 which will only run for about 30-40 minutes on Eneloops and really only likes alkalines.  Yes, regardless of settings.  I have since shifted to an A10 for a >:D recorder
