I have 20x Powerex 2700mA and I know how good these batteries are, sometimes after 3 or 4 weeks the batteries are still showing full. I bought another 2 packs (8x) of Powerex batteries 3 weeks ago (just before Fraser’s outing) to add to my "collection" but to my disappointment. these 8 could not hold charge for more than 3 days. I decided to call EastGear yesterday and complained about the batteries. They asked me to bring the batteries down for their technician to have a look. After passing the batteries to their technicians just now, in less than 2 minutes, they gave me 2 packs of new batteries and mentioned that there were batch problems.
If you have recently bought Powerex 2700mA rechargeable batteries with date code 08-07 1W and have problem, you may want to bring your batteries to EastGear for exchange.

Not sure about Enelop. But compare to Sanyo, yes.
After using Powerex and Sanyo, I promised myself I will stick to Powerex and not any other brand. The gap is BIG.May 31, 2009 at 10:58 am #290201sleepycatMember
thanks Hwee Boon. I might give Powerex a try after all the endorsements here.June 18, 2009 at 9:38 am #291654JRCMember
Thanks for the info. I have quite a lot of 2700 mA POWEREX batteries, but I cannot find the date code on any of them

I use PowerEx Imedion, rated at 2100, but it can hold charges for a very long time, very much like Enelop.June 18, 2009 at 1:10 pm #291668Olesen, BjornSpectator
Big fan of Powerex …. very long lasting and reliable ….. nice to know that EastGear can give ‘after sales service’. Thanks.

Thanks for the update SC. I have changed almost all my 2700s to the Eneloops and Imedions. The ability to hold their charge even after a few weeks is a big plus for me. BUT the 2700s are definitely more powerful and is my choice if I need to shoot on a regular basis.
