WHICH RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES TO BUY FOR A DP’s LIFE?

Did you also have the experience that you charge batteries ahead for, for example, your audio gear like the Zoom H4n or Sennheiser Evolution lav mics, and rechargeable batteries die really quickly? What about the scenario where you have charged everything, and five weeks later you get a phone call last-minute for a shooting gig in 2 hours and you have no time to recharge the batteries and you go on location with half or even uncharged batteries? This happened to me a few times. But now there is an end in sight.
I found these amazing batteries from Sanyo. They are called ‘Eneloop‘. You can get a bunch for $20 at Amazon. Not only do they last a heck longer they also preserve their charge of 80% capacity within a year. That is just unbelievable and unheard-of.
BTW, in Germany I went to a special shop in Berlin that sells only batteries, really you can buy everything related to batteries and chargers only. He told me that Sanyo is the best company for pro batteries and I found this to be true.

Try them out.

One last thing: there is a rumor that Apple’s new battery-charger and AA batteries are also from Sanyo.
