    NiMH battery comparison tool(and how to get cheap rebranded Eneloops)

    I was looking at what batteries to get for my flashgun and came across this awesome comparison website:

    https://lygte-info.dk/review/batteri...comparator.php

    It tests the batteries,shows their construction,discharge pattern,etc. Sizes include AA and 18650. The reviewer goes by the name HKJ on this forum:

    http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...eries-Included

    This site then also shows what batteries are rebranded Eneloops and what generation they are:

    https://eneloop101.com/batteries/rewrapped-batteries/

    Eneloops tend to be made in Japan,and are known as some of the longest lasting and lowest discharge batteries you can get. As you can see the rebrands cover multiple generations of Eneloops and Eneloop Pros,so some might prioritise power and others lifespan.

    The website also tests chargers too:

    Here are some USB charger tests too:

    Good to get confirmation that the IKEA ones are Eneloops. Had suspected that when I saw the made in Japan label.

    Don't really use batteries enough to go for anything fancy though. I have those Lidl low-discharge (the Eures ones not the worse quality Kompernass ones) and a fairly poor 7dayshop USB charger.

    The 'Eneloops' are interesting especialyy. I've some devices that take AA or AAA cells and 7dayshop and Aldidl cells are a tad too big - damn near had to hammer a torch to get the battery carrier out. Result is, I now have quite a lot of Eneloops and some of the good Fujitsu (also made in Japan, same specs. - I suspect the same thing in reality).
    When I want more, some of these 'clones' could save me a bit
    Ikea's primary cells are pretty good as well, but sometimes a bit short-dated.

    The Danish website does test them - you need to search for it:

    https://lygte-info.dk/review/batteri...comparator.php
    https://lygte-info.dk/review/batteri...Test%20UK.html

    There are some newer ones in the second test.

    Now I just need to find somewhere that actually has stock of Sanyo NCR20700As. Seems about as common as unicorn poop!
