the H in mAh stands for hour. For example if you ralser is 200 mA, and you have a 200mAh battery, your battery will last about 1 hour. USing NiMH batteries seems to hold a charge better, they don't lose charge over time as fast as NiCads for example.Wanjiru said:Hi everybody,
Which AAA rechargeble battery would you consider as the best when used in lasers?
How important is the capacity? Is it right that higher mAh rating= More power and more battery life?
The eneloops are made by Sanyo, and I recommend the AAA and AA eneloops over any other nimh battery...hands down.cyclonite said:If I were using AAA rechargeble batteries for my laser I would go for an 'ultra low discharge' NiMH like Uniross Hybrio or Sony Enelop.
Yes I know they are excellent, I know what I am talking about and would not say Eneloops are the best if I didn't believe it!cyclonite said:I thought I typed Sanyo. lol.
But are the eneloops good? If you notice their AAs are only 2000mAh whereelse other ultra low discharge batteries are 2100mAh at the moment. 1 example is the uniross hybrio.
They can be charged in any charger that charges NIMH batteries.cyclonite said:Darn I should have tried eneloops
Ok can one of you please do me a big favour and take a look at an eneloop AA and let me know the charging requirements? e.g. charge at xxmA for xx hours. I just wanna see if my charger will do it.
Thanks guys. Appreciate it.
Some lasers don't require the full 3v to run properly. My old X105 ran MUCH better and longer with eneloops instead of regular alkalines.equlizer said:i have a bag full of energizer and duracell and other rechargables just sitting in a drawer. I now use eneloop for everything (Cept my lasers)
rechargables only give 1.2v and regular give 1.5v. so for me, i use 3xaaa and if i used rechargables, id have to add a 4th battery.
