I bought 12 AAA 1000MAH Accucells. I charged them with smart charger, but they would crash in 20 minutes on my 220 ma light, with 3/4 battery configurations. The smart charger wasn't rejecting any cells.
Off to batteries plus to buy a c9000. Thanks Accucell. Already, on refresh/analyze, 2 are measuring less than 130 mah and high internal resistance, 4 were between 650 and 670 mah. The darn 9000, is so slow, it will be days before tests are done. My guess is 3 or 4 of the 12 were dud cells, and the rest are about 650 mah, not the claimed 1000 mah.
I need to buy 8 to 12 AAs more. But draw the line at 2400 mah. 1850mah lsds, is a just pathetic capacity. I am concluding by reading that only Sanyo XX lsd are above the 2400 mah (vapex immediates are 2300 and immedions are 2200 or less.). .... While on the non lsd front, only the sanyo 2700 are not made in China (dishonest), meaning Vapex 2900 are likely only 2500s or less.
This means my choice is really only sanyo 2700s or the sanyo xx cells to meet my specs. (And the sanyo xx barely fits my specs at that.) Ideally, a cell would have 3200 mah or more.
