I went to T.Nagar (Chennai) today to know the battery pricing for my camera..

1) Camelion Alwaysready 4 x 2100mAH + Camelion Plain Charger = 700

2) GP Recyko 4 x 2100 mAH + Gp powerbank Charger = 490 + 275 = 770

3) Sanyo eneloop 4 x 2100 mAH = 385+385 = 770 (NO charger available seperately ;) )

Which one is best VFM and gives long life.........

Thanks

I have a bunch of eneloops and they are by far the best buy I did last year. Excellent choice if you get them on sale.

eneloops are rated very highly. 2500mah may be more expensive but last longer.Thats a really good price. Normally for 700 to 800 one gets 800mah not 2100mah.

trusted gray market shops will help if you know any such outlets,
you can also get the GP 4pack..as GP is also very good,
chargers come cheap ...recently i took a camelion charger @ 180/- bajaj complex,near national mrkt bangalore.

Sometimes..cheap batteries last long too ..Long time back i took 30Rs pair 'sanyo'written batteries (sure china product).. they were going 500+ charges..that too on a local 60Rs charger! :lol:

Not an expert; this is the advice I've picked up from others.

If you are an occasional user of your camera, the eneloops (or equiv) are way the best, because they will keep the charge, whereas with the normal kind, when you take the camera off the shelf... flat batteries.

However, for regular users, I've heard that the eneloops give slightly less mileage per charge.

hi nandakumar
if you want more number of shots from a single charge, go for the normal Sanyo 2700 rather than the eneloop. i have been using them and they are fabulous. will cost you around Rs.450 a pair. but make sure you buy from a reliable shop so that you get the genuine one.

Yep... it is only a pack of batteries, after all.

But hey, it is an expensive pack of batteries and it is a drag if one finds them dead in a few months time!

Croma has them. I got mine from there.

The 1900mAh eneloops last longer in my Canon flash than the 2700mAh Sony batteries. If its a high current application, there's no replacement for Eneloops. The flash recycle times are ridiculously low with eneloops.

Re: Sanyo eneloop

Hi ROC,

I tried Croma, Indiranagar for Sanyo Eneloops. They said that they don't carry them (they had Uniross Hybridos). Can you tell me which Croma did you buy your Eneloops in?

Regards,
Prasad Redkar.
