Subject: RE: Found good price on NiMh batteries
From: Adam Koczarski (ark_at_monark.com)
Date: 2003-08-24


Powerex batteries are hard to beat for quality. Check out
http://www.imaging-resource.com/ACCS/BATTS/BATTS.HTM for a good comparison
of various brands. Just because a battery has a 2200mAh stamped on the side
of it doesn't mean it's as good as other 2200mAh batteries. Powerex 1800mAh
batteries outperform some 2000mAh batteries.
