Capacity of 1/2AA NiMH\'s?

What is currently the highest available capacity of 1/2AA NiMH's?

Also, there was a battery website that had a picture of several cell sizes side by side. Anyone know here I can find it?

Re: Capacity of 1/2AA NiMH\'s?

The 1/2 AA's I use have a stated capacity of 450 mAh. They work great in most AA replacements to up the voltage, but the positive end is too short for some flashlights. I've resorted to shoving a folder wad of aluminum at the positive end in some mods to make the connection.

That's where I got mine. The service is utter crap, but that's the only place I can find to get them. I tried to place more orders, but they just screwed everything up.

Batteryworldcenter has some higher 600mah 1/2AAs that you can also order...

I noticed that there are no AA sizes in the pic? Thanks though Bart, I was looking for A sizes as well.

So, the highest capacity is 600mah? Hmmm...

Well, that's 600mah on the BWC website... I don't know if there's any higher capacities than that... Maybe a Google will do better...

FalconFX, did they have tabs, like a normal cell? Also, I don't see them listed, is this a call-in order item? I would like to use two of these ½ AA cells to run a MadMax+, in a one AA cell Mini-Mini-Mag that Rothrandir made for me.

Re: Capacity of 1/2AA NiMH\'s?

6 months ago, I was looking to make some cordless phone batteries out of 1/2 AAs. At that time 600mah was the best I could find. I stumbled upon the correct battery packs at Fry's, for $6/pack. (At $6/pack, it wasn't worth looking for loose cells.)

Shankus, they're tabbed (obviously), and they were the cheapest 600 mah I could find.

If you're interested, Outpost/Frys still has them for $6. 600 mah 1/2AA They're Rayovac branded packs.

Shankus, I apologize...

I mistook the number right above it as 600mah, but that's the 2/3AAs, not the 1/2AAs... It's only 450mah...
