Same here, eneloop, the black pro ones are brilliant. You should invest in a charger/conditioner. Ideally the type which deal,with each battery individually. Not,too expensive on ebay.

Agreed, Sanyo Eneloops are the biz. I use the white ones which are superb, never let me down (6 sets of 4) after 5 years use.

I have used Ansmann for years, and have 10 packs (4 per pack). Never had problems with them in many years.

LIDL's batteries work fine for me.

Definitely Eneloops (now Panasonic I believe, having taken over Sanyo) - get them from Amazon. Black ones are very good.

7 day shop are ok, but eneloops are better for holding charge. I made the change a whole back, essential gear now.
