Disappointing Energizer Rechargable Batteries

I hesitated a lot before giving those rechargable batteries a shot, as I see it less convenient, and seem still expensive to rely on. I did some math and said, if they work as they’re supposed to, 4 or 6 batteries would do good for wireless keyboard, mouse, and the Wii controller as well, and from another point of view, I will be doing a little good for the Green Environment thing.


Trying it out however turns out to be a huge disappointment. They seem however to run out of pretty fast I have to change it in less than a month! It used to take longer with regular batteries. If the point is I need to always have spares and on recharge, that’s a hell of hassle to look after. I will need dozens of backup batteries, and frequent charger replacements. The concept might be good, but at least for Energizer, it’s still got a lot of work to do, and I don’t recommend you rely on it yet.


Has anyone got a better experience? I would love to know.

    It might be conditional as I can’t afford for non rechargeable batteries for my camera. It will be way expensive for me. For this reason i will not have to recharge it very often and works pretty good. I have 2 spare as well for this.

    Do you use these same types of batteries? Many people complained on Amazon as well from it’s short life (I should’ve read before I buy!)
