Turnigy LSD

Are these batteries any good?

Are they just rebranded Enloops?

The LSD ones from hobby partz continue to be my low price alternatives to Eneloops some of which have been in use for four years this month.

Probably depends on how you use them. I haven't done any kind of rigorous testing but the 8 I have seem to do well enough in mixed use as the Eneloops. Trouble is with a lot of these is it's very difficult to get any reliable long term use data, since that takes years. Even testing the LSD capability is very time consuming-they have to just sit for months. I've got some AAA also and they seem to do better than AAA Eneloops, but they are several years newer.

I you use it on a somewhat regular basis you won't even be able to tell the difference. If it sits 6+ months out of the year....maybe.
What with the bump in shipping they aren't the bargain that they appear to be anymore.

I am ordering LiPo's so the extra AA LSD batteries will not add any shipping charge. I always use Priority Mail 2-day; it's a real bargain.
