Thread: Powerex pro with TK41

  1. #1

    Default Powerex pro with TK41

    Hey guys it's been a while, I use to post on here a lot a long time ago but I had lost my original email I used so now I had to create a whole different account. Okay so now onto my question. I have the Fenix TK41 that I have always ran the regular eneloops. I just ordered the powerex pro 2700mah batteries and was just wondering if these are okay to run in the TK41. Thanks guys.

    You should be fine. There very much like eneloops. And 1.2 volts. Iím not sure if there capacity is correct though.
    If i had one day left to live i would want to be at my workplace.Because every day is like a frickin eternity.

    PowerEx Pro 2700s are OK batteries, but high self discharge made in China. Evidently, PowerEx sources newer batteries from Japan, so they might be FDK/Eneloop/Fujitsu batteries, or they might not be.

    Best to just get standard Eneloop/Fujitsu 2000mAh batteries and live with the longer life and less capacity.

    The PE 2700s will start developing higher I.R.s and start tanking from 2-3 years, but if that's OK with you, then go for it. It's not like they cost a lot of money.

    Hi there,

    It should be fine with the powerex pro 2700mah battery.

    Any Ni-Mh battery will work. Power Ex batteries are not really low self discharge so if that's a problem (if you are not planning to use the light regularly) Eneloop Pro might be better or sticking with the standard white 1900mAh Eneloop.

    I have experienced this and agree with the suggestion to get standard Eneloops. Their low self-discharge is convenient and their incredible lifespan makes them the most economical in the long run.

    Eneloop Pros also die after a few years (2-3), while high self discharge always need charged before use.

    Regular Eneloops are, in my opinion, simply the best.

    The Pros have a shorter lifespan but really still the best choice for an economical higher capacity rechargeable.

    They aren't terrible expensive and while the white Eneloops are generally more practical for most applications...it's still nice to a have a few sets of Pro on hand as well, IMO.
