5637Re: New Batteries
- Aug 10, 2011I switched to the Eneloops and am very happy with them. I think the run time is comparable to the original batteries plus these retain a charge in storage which is great for my use. I have three sets for my 396XT and rotate through them. When I travel I take all three sets with me and get through a typical weekend this way and recharge when get home. I use them in my HP-1 too.
