Well, Gilligan, this thread is drifting.
I've found that NiMH cells from Ebay (bought for
great price) turn out to be low quality, don't
last long, and way over hyped as to mA capacity.
They don't last very long in any device, and
ended up, had to put most of them in the scrap.
The false economy led to no savings at all.
Just wasted money.
The Duracells from Walmart lasted a couple years,
and the Rayovacs, also. I still have the ROV, and
cycle the 24 of them through the charger every
month or so. For no really good reason.
I did buy a pack of ROV, LDS cells, which fail me
now and again. (Can't let anyone know I've been
dropping LSD batteries on the floor, my Bishop
would put me in drug rehab.)
I also tried Powergenix, which are a whole different
cell, and require their own charger. The higher
voltage of 1.7 is nice. Thy are damaged if they fall
below 1.1 volts, and I've had a lot of these fail
after a while. I may buy more, I'm down to just a
few. I like them in my computer speaker, louder than
the 1.2 volt NimH.
Glad I'm not buying single use alkalines for 75 cents
a cell. I'd be more broke than I already am.
