    Fair play at @oldgeezer - I perhaps should have been more tactful.

    My apologies, no harm intended.

    No, after reading my post it was my fault. It reads badly.

    If you two keep sorting out misunderstandings all by yourselves the moderators will get really bored ;)

    Don, come on back to the card game in the Moderators' Lounge. There's nothing to see here. :roll:

    I have one too, works well but a bit limited. The nitecore one I mentioned charges so many more types of batteries, and has a USB charge output that I thought it may be a bit more versatile.

    I like that it does 8, so a set and a spare. It is also a good price, I ordered mine from the UK and was still a better deal than what I could get here. I only use AA and AAA around the house with the exception of the girls MS Surface: the pen uses AAAA batteries. I order those from Amazon basics.

    Whilst we're here, do remember that there are a couple of variations of Eneloops. The basic ones (white) and the Pro (black).

    I use the Pro versions which are obviously more expensive. I did a night time party last week firing off circa 300 shots with a 600 EX Speedlite, and there was still plenty of power left in them.

    Ah! I had no idea and hence my comment earlier about not finding much difference between ordinary batteries and the white ones.

    Although it is already mentioned above, the key benefit of Eneloops is that they hold their charge really well whilst not being used.

    I use speedlights quite a lot and recharge the batteries after each shoot and know I’m ready to go for the next one.

    There may be other cheaper brands that do the same but given how reliable and how long the eneloops last, I’d rather pay a couple of quid more and not have to worry.

    Good luck!

    It is not a couple of quid though, they cost three times the price. When you can get the same cells with a different wrapper for a third of the price it is a no brainier. The effect of good marketing never ceases to amaze.
