I wouldn't be using them for anything that would require a high amount of drain, for things such as wireless mice and keyboards. Their capacity is not that big of a deal.

For the environment I don't mind if I have to recharge these batteries every three months instead of 6 months, plus they're cheap.

Regarldess, are these worth the time?

My advice is to avoid ebay altogether and to buy a good brand name when buying batteries (or most anything) - ie: Sanyo.

The shipping cost alone is an incredible waste. I'd never trust generic batteries to do anything more than operate a kitchen clock, but these wouldn't even do that well since they'd probably drain themselves in a day or two.

If you want to use rechargeable batteries for keyboards and mice, get something with a low discharge rate, either Sanyo Enelooops or something under 2000mAH.

I would consider eneloop cells based on what you're using them for.

I would not waste my time on these.

I second the recommendation on Eneloops considering your intended usage.

Where would a good place be to buy them. I look at sanyos on ebay and suspect that a good majority of them would be counterfeit.

The cheapest price I've seen in the US is HHGregg. $7.99 for 4-AAA, $9.99 for 4-AA.

If you don't have a local HHGregg, you can find them at Thomas Distributing, Ritz Camera, Circuit City. There are othe merchants who stock them, the preceding retailers are the ones that come to mind.
