I'll grab a few; are these any good? I generally use Eneloop (1900 mAh) and Amazon Basics (2400 mAh) and you say those are 2500 mAh so if they're as good, this is a pretty decent price.

Ive had the older duracells for like 3 years now (AA= 2000mAh and AAA=800mAh), and they are pretty solid and at least in my experience are much better than rechargeable Energizers which tend to die within a year, seems like a good deal to me

I've got lots of these Duracell NiMH batteries. They're ok, as good as any I've had. I recall in the past there was some mention of black top vs. white top being made in Japan or China. Let's see... all my AAAs appear to be white top, and they are Made in Japan, while all my AAs are black top, and they say Made in China.

It's been awhile since I've bought, but aren't the white tops 'Duraloops'?

You can use any NiMH charger with any NiMH batteries, except for the super-fast chargers that are meant to work only with special batteries.

You can also use any NiCad trickle charger, but a smart charger meant for use only with NiCad batteries will not sense the correct internal resistance to control automatic shutoff with NiMH batteries.

Yeah. The eneloop chargers are great. Your battery will likely last a lot longer, because the chargers are low current, and shut off when the voltage is high enough.

These are great batteries ! I use them for batteries in Xbox controllers. Will pick up a bunch for all the other battery operated items in the house (remotes, door locks, etc). I was hoping for a black friday deal and was comparing prices and looking around. Found this post ! Thanks OP !!

I need a charger that can do AAA as the one I currently have only does AA. Would the Duracell one be ok, or should I be looking for something better? If so what, and what is a good price. I've got a bunch of the Amazon Basics AAAs that are all in use now so one of these days I'm actually going to need to charge them :).
Scotty is a cheap mofo and loves to get a deal!

the charger in the pic does both AAA and AA (it comes with both batteries afterall)

I also use these for my gaming controllers. But for a deal this low I might as well pick up some extras!
