look for low self discharge batts

eneloops are popular and more common nowadays... 2000mah

if you can still find hybrios i find that these last longer ( just a little lang naman ) 2100mah kasi ( i use these )

medions are ok din daw tho i havent used these personally

Mahal kasi ang energizer. Whereas you can buy a pack of 4 eneloops for just 500, multiple uses pa because it's rechargeable.

Eneloops are pretty much popular these days so you give that a shot. Plus it's not that expensive compared to buying energizer batteries.

Eneloops here, kaso hirap maghanap, most cdrking branches wala silang stocks lalo na dito sa Cavite.

used to have eveready (2000mAh, color green) and sanyo (2100mAh, color white and orange). yung eveready may kasamang slow charger. 3 years old na sila pareho.
used them sa sb600 ko alternately ngayon ginamit ko na rin sa yungnuo slave flash. napansin ko bilis na nila maubusan. baka kasi old na rin sila. so when i got an sb900, bought eneloops na rin with fast charger. ayus! hindi pumapalya kahit burst. pero siyempre maingat ako sa overheat..

Eneloops are a good choice as they can hold their charge for long periods of time

On another side, Powerex Imedion 2100 mAh also hold their charge for a long time. You can pair it up with Maha C204w (ata) with a refresh function help those batteries perform better after years of using it. Just my 2cents.  ;D

I also have the Powerex Imedion (included with the Powerex charger).. had a chance to compare it with the eneloop batts in a shoot using 2 flashes and it ended up beating the eneloops with regards to recycling time.. settled for this because it also has the eneloop's ability to retain at least 80% of its charge (as advertised) after long periods of non-usage.  ;D

Ah yeah. I noticed that with Eneloops. Pag medyo low na ang charge, mabagal na ang recycling time.
