best re-chargeable batteries (AA and 9V)
« on: June 19, 2013, 02:03:41 PM »
so my rig takes 2 AAs and my CA-9100 takes a single 9V. 

What is my best option for re-chargeable batteries?  I'd like to have 6 AAs and a couple of 9Vs ready to go at all times.

For AA's, I've never had a problem with Sanyo Eneloop - but get the standard ones, not the "xx" (those don't last as many cycles, apparently). They last many years/cycles.

Can't help you with 9V because I don't have any recharcheables.

For 9 Volts

for AA

Great choices, but for the AA's, I would go with

I love low self discharge batteries. Besides holding their charge a long time, they seem to last more cycles before they need replacing. After I reconditioned my 5 year old  2000 mAh Eneloops  in my LaCrosse BC-900 charger, 85% of them still had a capacity over 2000 mAhs. You could also go for the 2500 mAHh Eneloops, but they are around 50% more expensive for 100 more mAhs.

I've recently moved to the Sanyo Eneloop AA batteries, myself.  Even though they're only good for 500 recharge cycles, they last over twice as long as the regular Eneloops do.  I'd rather take 8-10 hours over whatever and just have a spare set handy when I need to change.  :)

Another vote for Sanyo's LSD Eneloop AA's, no experience with 9V rechargeables.

While we're on the subject...

I recently seem to have turned into a massive user of AA sanyo enloops.

At any given show I will run 4 in the r-44 and 4 in the battery pack for the mr1 as well as 2 in any number of small recorders.

I love them, and they rarely need changing at a show, butl the MR2 or the R44 can eat a set at full charge in 3 hours sometimes.

What would you guys recommend as the best choice for recharging 8 or more at a time?
I'm currently using the lacrosse bc-700, which is great, but mine has begun to slack off charging in bay 4, and I always have to pull the other 3 and move batteries around to get everything charged overnight.

Thanks!

I was under the impression that we should a kid rechargeable 9v batteries. Is that true?
this is definitely not normal

I should mention Sanyo is the oem manufacture for about 80% of the rechargeable cells out there. at least they used to be China has now taken over. but Sanyo always was and always will be a leader in the technology.
