Hello Charles,

I have not looked at any of the low self discharge cells except for the Eneloop cells. Toward the end of January, I will have data on 6 months of self discharge. Once I understand how the Eneloop cells perform, I will branch out to the others.

I must say that I find it interesting that the Eneloop cells are 2000 mAh. I also find it interesting that the Ray O Vac IC3 15 minute charger came with 2000 mAh cells, and the initial Energizer 15 minute chargers came with 2200 mAh cells. There seems to be something magical about 2000 mAh. Perhaps they are the best overall performers.

On a side note, we are beginning to see the same problems you observed with the Energizer 2500 cells with the Sanyo 2500 cells. Strong performance off the charger, but they are self discharging to nothing in a week or two.

Tom
