With flash photography, recycle time is important – even more so depending on what you shoot – but for the lifestyle photographer, 1.2 V precharged Powerex batteries like the AA 2600 mAh and the AAA 1000 mAh have a range of benefits that justify slightly slower voltage output. That said, non-rechargeable alkaline batteries gradually drop from 1.5 V to 1.2 V and even 1 V, whereas NiMH batteries stay at out about 80% for most of their discharge cycle, so investing in rechargeables is really a no-brainer and here is why:
- Saves you money: You won’t need to buy endless supplies of non-rechargeable alkaline batteries as Powerex batteries are rechargeable up to hundreds of times. You are more likely to lose them before they lose their charging capacity.
- Saves you time: Unlike with AA 2700 mAh, AA 2600 mAh batteries are precharged and ready to use out-of-package.
Did you know that NiMH batteries self-discharge about 1% per day? So, if used in a low energy or standby device, the battery will only last about 90 days before requiring a recharge. But, Powerex rechargeables are different as they provide you with:
- Peace of mind: Even after 1 year of storage, these batteries will retain 85% of their capacity.
These precharged rechargeable batteries are available in AA or AAA NiMH and are compatible with NiMH battery chargers and any device that accepts rechargeable NiMH batteries like wireless devices or gadgets.
