Hot! Amazon - Lenmar 2000 mAh NiMH Rechargeable AA Batteries (24 Pack) for $21.99!
There was a great review for this item on Amazon. I`ll just post it here:
First off, NiMH are great for most power hungry devices, but you should NOT use NiMH batteries in:
- Emergency Devices (smoke alarms, emergency flashlight batteries, etc.)
- Slow drain devices like clocks
This is because NiMH devices drain much quicker than Alkaline batteries. Don`t expect to charge once and then use the batteries a couple of months later; they will have discharged. Another note is that NiMH batteries operate at 1.2 volts, while Alkalines are 1.5 volts. This isn`t a problem for MOST devices, even ones that say "designed for Alkaline", but some things, such as clocks, simply will not work well with 1.2 volt NiMH batteries, and you should still use Alkaline in any device that doesn`t behave correctly after NiMH batteries are used.
Now that I`ve cleared that up, should you buy these particular batteries or not? The smart consumer will notice:
- They are not a well known brand name
- They are only 2000mAh
- They are an amazing deal.
The truth is, these batteries are most likely exactly the same quality as most brand name 2500mAh batteries that you`d pay 2-3 times as much for. Here`s why:
