My old 2400 and 2500mah AA's are on their last legs. I had two batteries die at a concert Friday night. I was out of commission for several minutes while I found 5 good ones out of the 10 I had with me.

I have read a lot about the Sanyo Eneloop batteries but the power ratings seem a bit low at 2000mah. I do not leave my batteries set for long periods so shelf-life is not an issue.

What is the latest and greatest? Any suggestions good/bad or warnings about brands, power rating claims, etc. would be appreciated.


D3s, D300, 14-24, 24-70, 70-200 VRI and VRIIx2, 80-400 VR, Sigma 150-500.
