On ebay I've seen this package:



what do you think about?

There are some possibilities that these batteries are good?


Or is better if I choose the Sanyo 2700 mah?

There are no such high power batteries in existance.

There where many fakes coming out of South America with such ridiculously high numbers last year.

Buy a make you have heard of, or buy those batteries and expect them to explode or leak all over your camera, its your choice.

I prefer the Sanyo eneloop cells (2000 mAh) over the Sanyo 2700cellsbecause of their low self discharge rate and excellent performance.

I charge my batteries on a rotating schedule every few days so prefer the more powerful batteries.

The 3.5ah cells are definitely fake.
What about 3ah? Do those exist, or is anything higher than 2700mah a scam?

Well that depends A LOT on how you are using them.

Cameara sits a lot that is one thing.... shoot dozens of shots daily.... is another.

Personally I am the daily sort.... so shelf charge life is not a real biggie.

And what I use AA's in now is an external flash for my Pentax K10D DSLR.... where power (therfore flash charge cycle time) is the most important thing.

Throwing them in the charger when I get home is no big deal and carry a second set anyways. And rarely let them get less than half gone anyway.

When FLash cycle drop from 3 to 6 sec. or more.... then they get charged or changed anyways. (End of life would be about a 10 sec cycle)

A bit of marketing licence! This battery is marketed under different names but is a very poor performer. Look here under Multiple Power 2000: http://www.users.on.net/~mhains/Reviews.html

The average cell capaity was 1286 mAh: http://www.users.on.net/~mhains/Tables/swiff/Multipower2000Cell.swf.

Lots of batteries - rechargeables, carbon, alkaline, etc. - come out of China these days. They sell for very, very low prices but give you very, very low performance.

Some are so bad, they'll leak inside your electronic device and ruin the device. Be careful about these batteries. Best to stay with brands that are known for their quality.
