Bought some AAA's in Jan. 06 and used them in a 3 Watt LED flashlight requiring 3 cells.

I'm happy with them so far. Their far cheaper than the Energizers although the Energizers currently on the shelf at Walmart Canada are 850 mAh and the Pure Energy's are 750 mAh.

My first 9 cycles were done on a "smart" quick charger and then I got a BC 900 and ran "REFRESH" at 250/500 mAh and continued to use them. Later I ran "TEST" with these results 796, 768, 784 and 754 mAh at 200/100 mAh the latter being lower likely due to being cycled less ( 4 vs. 11 cycles) than the others since I primarily used the first 3 cells. This is a good result considering they are rated at 750 mAh.

I then ran a short term self-discharge capacity test by running "REFRESH" till all the cells were "FULL" at 200/100 mAh and then let them sit for 6 days and ran "REFRESH/DISCHARGE" at 250 mA discharge and noted a remaining capacity of 752, 742, 715 and 699 mAh (94%, 97%, 91%, 93%) which was higher the new La Crosse Tech AA 2000 mAh I got with my BC 900 back in Mar. 2006 at 6 cycles.
