Pretty impressive indeed. Just a word of caution that 80% is not an accurate number so Im looking much forward to the final 1-year discharge or final pops!! Hang in there Sys :)

I'm glad you bumped this, had not noticed the year end results.

the leaders all held on to 80% charge for a full year. Very good results.

Yep, seen them, but those numbers are from the capacity tester which are inaccurate. So to know the real % you either have to do a discharge test on the charger or do the remaining pops on the flash. (Although the former is more accurate for capacity, the latter is more useful to know in this test).

Great to see the year end results. It looks like Powerex made some improvements over their original batteries but they have a long way to go before they win me over to where I would want to invest my money in them again.

I have over 6 years worth of use now on most of my Eneloop and Sanyo XXX (Eneloop Pro) batteries and they are still going strong. I've been using the 16 cell Titanium chargers since day one without a single issue and I have absolutely no battery management practices in place.

I haven't bought a alkaline AA or AAA battery in years. So far I've never had an issue using the white Eneloop batteries in any of my transmitters or any other devices for that matter such as meters, flash lights, shavers, cordless keyboards, mouses etc...
