I've noticed there isn't even really a debate around here, there seems to be no questioning the Sanyo eneloop AA batteries. My question is, why? I understand everybody believes they're extremely reliable, but why doesn't Maha's Powerex 2700 AA battery which has 35% more juice than the eneloop 2000, get any attention around here? I'm not starting a arguement because I've never used an eneloop so I don't know their lasting power, but it just seems to figure that a battery with a larger capacity (an in my experience, a very reliable battery, just don't drop 'em, killed two from 6 ft. drops) would make more sense in flashlights.
I started on Powerex's off a very battery educated person's opinion about 12ish years ago. This kid was a genius and he didn't hesitate to suggest to me Maha Powerex for my digital camera, I've bought dozens and haven't been disappointed.
Anyhow, again, not looking to start a GM vs Ford argument, or Honda vs Toyota if imports fit your fancy, but I'm just wondering why Powerex is rarely mentioned in these parts.
P.S. My 1st posts involved needing a flashlight recommendation, and I was lead toward the SC51, which I've been using for about a week now...LOVE IT. Will post much thanks later.
