Rated 5 out of 5 by Pogolil Rechargeable batteries are the best for budget.
My family decided that using rechargeable batteries was more cost-effective and convenient than using regular batteries. They cost a bit more, but we're no longer wasting money on replacing dead batteries nor are we wasting time on trips to the store to restock. It's never convenient when the batteries are dead in your flashlight in the middle of the night and you're out of batteries, but it's never a problem when you've got extra rechargeables on hand and ready. I don't know if rechargeable Energizers are better than other rechargeable brands because I haven't tried any other brands, but I doubt there's much difference. Overall, using rechargeable batteries is better than having dead batteries which is the same as having no batteries at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SewMom I am buying these as a replacement for the same batteries. I've been really happy with their battery life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SilverFox Excellent Batteries IF...
I have about 25 of these in the kids games... remotes, etc. Going to buy 24 more for some Laser Tag Guns. At first, was NOT impressed until I changed to a charger that would fully charge them. The charger I use has the label " Digital, Rapid Charger for NiCD & NiMH Batteries, model CH-1700. Not sure where I got it though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by joe the cameraman excellent for high drain devices
these batteries are designed to provide a high level of power for short periods of time. they are like sprinters, they work extremely well for short periods of time. i'm able to take 300 to 400 pictures with my digital camera. they lose their charge even when they're not used, that is normal.
they are not designed to hold a charge for a long period of time so they're not recommended for flashlights or emergencies. use alkaline batteries for those devices you will need for an emergency.

Had problems with "after charge" shelf life. Most will be drained in 7-10 days while not used. Please, read blogs about this AA 2500maH battery.
