Plus Sony memory cards at up to 65% off (off what is the big question - but some decent deals)

Are the Amazon batteries any good? (Compared to Eneloop.)

Re: quality of Amazon Basic batteries – I purchased a set of AAs recently and they work well. I do not use them for critical applications like a flash but they are good for items that stay close to home with the backups, such as flashlights or remotes. Like Eneloops and unlike Energizer rechargeables, they have not given sudden failures or leaks.

What charger to use with these? This one? Is this a good price or just normal?

Thinking of picking some of these up for my flash.

Sometimes, these batteries are rebranded. So they could be Eneloops but rebranded for Amazon. The reviews are informative especially from those who are TOP RATED.

These batteries will work fine for flash and any other use.

You can pick up a fancy charger like this for about $30:

Or you can get a basic but well-reviewed charger that includes 4 Sony NiMH rechargables for $27:

Be sure to read the reviews from "NLee the Engineer (external link)" on these products, he explains why the two chargers noted above are good choices. The AmazonBasics charger isn't the best one out there, but for $12 it is a good deal.

Here's the following statements from a reviewer I trust, NLee the Engineer:

"I have tested one pair each of thos AA cells after 3, 4 and 8 months of storage. The average remaining charge measured were 82.3%, 79.4% and 67.6% respectively. That means they have already failed the claim of "maintains 80% of capacity after 1 year". If the present linear trend (-3% per month) continues, I expect them to retain only 55% of original charge after one year. In contrast, my previous test data with Sanyo eneloop and GP Recyko+ showed that they can retain at least 80% after 12 months."

For the price, though, these Amazon batteries are probably worth getting even as a backup and other applications...

From what I read on deal sites, it only the limit only applies to regular account. If you have Prime, you won't have that problem. I was able to add 4 into my cart but didn't fully check out.

Nope, I have prime and it hit me with the "we have reduced your order" memo when I tried to check out.
