yeah and they mentioned the recyko batteries were lsd`s but didn`t mention the cycle energy one`s are also lsd`s...

It`s a shame, that was a good opportunity to advertise the advantages of LSD`s. Had they of known what they were talking about no doubt they would of done just that.

Using charging time as a deciding factor is laughable too. Marking batteries down because of the type of charger you`ve chosen to use :/ That`s just plain silly.

The gadget show is generally a bit rubbish IMO, this is a perfect example.

Thanks for the link though abvid :thumbsup:

They evaluated the whole pack, including whatever charger the manufacturers decided to include with their batteries...

The sad thing about this is that some people will actually believe their results and buy batteries they rate, rather than seeing this as a ditzy cute mechanical puppy video.

Oh, do you think the charge time for recyko was for the batteries straight out of the pack, i.e. the charge time of "pre-charged" cells? :)

Using the "stock" charger that comes with each battery is probably the right thing to do, since most consumers don't have high end chargers like many of us either have or know are available.

I agree that the LSD properties should have been talked about more.
