"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
Sixteen years ago, I decided to embrace the recharge. After research, I bought the best batteries and recharger. It ended up to be a giant waste of money. Even my kids, who were young at the time, learned not to trust "Dad's" batteries. It had such a negative impact, they didn't trust rechargable anything for a long while (such as with MP3 players.)
Try some of the newer Eneloop batteries (other quality brands are available ) they are a lot better but it does depend on application I agree.
If you can always charge them at a lower rate too, so they don't ever get warm I've found them to be very good, lasting a few months in things like the led candles we have, those ones have been charged at maybe twenty times over the five years we've had them.
A general warning: seen (had) batteries from major brands, such as Duracell, leak in devices and even leak sitting in a drawer. Heavy leakage. And five or six years left on the freshness date. For that matter, I've had NiMH batteries unable to hold a charge after just a few cycles: same batch, same device, same charging cycle - some just drop dead.
What did they all have in common? MADE IN CHINA
I simply won't buy them for those applications that require non-rechargeable. It's cheap insurance.
