I was really impressed by the Soshine 3300mWh (2200mAh)1.5v Li-Ion AA batteries when I tested them, and I have been using them in place of NiMh AA ever since.
Now Xtar have sent me some sample of their 2500mAh Li-Ion AA along with a dedicated charger to test. Xtar are well known for their excellent torches, particularly torches for scuba diving, and their batteries have always been of a similar quality.
These are no exceptiom, with an actual measured capacity of 2444mAh.
The charger is also very cool, literally with a large cutaway in the base to allow ventilation around the batteries resulting in no discernable temperature increase in the charger. Charging is indicated by a red/green led above each slot, but also a flashing green led in beside the positive terminal, so no worries for anyone who is red/green colour blind.
Up to the usual Xtar standard in my opinion.

I would like to use these - but not enough to have to use another charger. If they could be charged in my MC3000 I would be more likely to get some.
