Update on Rechargeable Batteries

For the original article click HERE.

 

The PowerGenix batteries suffered significant cell failures in a very short period of time.  Everytime I went to use a supposedly good and charged set, they would fail.  Of course they would fail she I really needed them… like when shooting an event.  Typically 1 battery would fail out of a set of 4 rendering a speed light useless.  After a few months of struggling with the failing units, I completely switch over to Eneloops.  My switch was about 6-8 months ago and I have never looked back since!  They perform how I need them, when I need them.

 

As a note, I contacted PowerGenix regarding the failing cells.  Apparently the were issues with this generation of the batteries and they very willingly offered me a credit via Amazon.com (where I had purchased the batteries). I ended up throwing the batteries away as it was not really worth my time to go through the return process.  All in all, the Eneloops have won out over the PwerGenix.
