Anybody using the Glitter variety eneloops? I'm kinda partial to the purple glitter model myself and was thinking of getting a set. Do they perform differently?

Nope just a limited edition wrapper originally created for specific markets just as Japan that became very popular and so was released in other markets.

Question for those who have used them with the 58EXII flash, at normal power, roughly how many flashes do a set eneloops give?
Thanks.

Of course. They're just MiMH batteries.

But for sheer convenience and if one shoots a lot, it's worth it to get a battery analyzer. They're about 60 bucks.

What is "normal" ?
I would guess range of 200 - 1200 flashes

It's not just the question of how many flash pops a set of batteries can yield; it's as important to question how fast is the recycle time. Flash can go on popping but you wouldn't want to live with a 30-sec recycle time in between the pops.

Here's the original eneloops test results:

1st 5 Pops Average Recycle Time: (3.37sec)
After 100 pops: (4:63sec)
After 200 pops: (5:37sec)
After 300 pops: (5:41sec)
After 400 pops: (7:63sec)
After 450 pops: (18:01sec)
After 460 pops: (35:41sec)

As you can see, a set of eneloops can probably yield around 500 flash pops, but the actual "usable" pops is less than 100 unless you can tolerate longer recycle time. Of course, it's an entirely different question if you're using an external battery pack that'd dramatically increase the recycle time.

Compare the above results with that of Powerex 2700:

1st 5 Pops Average Recycle Time: (3:86sec)
After 100 pops: (4:61sec)
After 200 pops: (4:88sec)
After 300 pops: (5:10sec)
After 400 pops: (5:48sec)
After 500 pops: (7:16sec)

This is the reason why I always go with Powerex 2700 for any intensive shootings and eneloops more for casual shootings. When I'm using my external pack, though, I don't mind going with either one.

I got hooked on Eneloops when looking for quality NiMH batteries for my flashlights. I will emplore anyone getting eneloops to get a quality charger. Yes, that may involve some money but it will extend the life of those rechargeable batteries significantly. Maha is one name brand often recommended on the candlepower forums. I urge you to lurk there for more information if you are interested.

I use my AA Eneloops in speedlights, flashlights, and packs in my F4 and F5. I use the AAA eneloops in my Cactus triggers. I try to recharge at 1C whenever possible. Don't know what 1C is, better go to a RC forum too. That stuff is really big for the RC guys as they really abuse their batteries.

Even faster recycle times and longer pops per charge but comes with a cost... Almost double the price of regular Eneloops and only can be charged 500 times vs. 2000 times.

They're awesome, I also like Tenergy (external link) for low draw applications like triggers and remotes. They're just like eneloops but 1/3 of the price, only 800mAh but that's more than enough for my usages.

Eneloops in the speedlights kick butt.

Im an Eneloop user but tried Tenergy CENTURA LSD recently and love them.
Similar in usage like the Eneloop (LSD, recycling time, etc) but like 20-30% cheaper.

If their AA product is as good as their C and D LSD batteries, then those should be a winner too. Will get some and give them a try. Never hurts to have another option available.....
