I tried rechargeable batteries back in 2000, and have not used any since, because they sucked donkey dong through a dirty diaper. But according to all reports (many), times have changed, and the Sanyo Eneloop batteries rock on all fronts, power, speed, holding a charge, and economy. I've already ordered a bunch and a charger.
(Amazon UK link.)

By the way, I like the kooky but memorable name, and the pleasant and simple design of these batteries.

I bought a set when I owned a Canon. But I sent the Canon back and got a G1 Panasonic.

Eneloops are great and at one time the only game in town. Now there are choices and one of the best bang for the buck is or was the Rayovac 4 hybrid, low self discharge. The Eneloops are rated at 2000 mHa and they do come up at that. The Rayovac's are rated at 2100 mHa and the ones I have tested have all come to that or more. Not a big difference but every little bit helps.

The Rayovac 4 batteries were packaged in a quite confusing manner that some speculate was a marketing move by Rayovac to take a market share away from some of their competitors. Before Christmas there were some sales that ended up about $1.25 per battery compared to roughly $3.00 per battery for Eneloops.

Anyway, lots of competition now to choose from but they do work and the low self discharge feature is great. No special chargers either!
