Ouch, you guys get really screwed over there in the UK! Here are the
same batteries that we get "across the pond".

Perhaps is just a more expensive site for batteries
and there are cheaper places.

BTW, 2100's are shipping. GP brand are very good, and you will never go
wrong with them.

NiMH are supposed to not have a memory effect, but in reality they are
less than NiCad, yet a bit more than LiIon. It isn't that much, so they
tend to call them "memoryless". What we really notice is the decreased
amount of charges for NiMH vs NiCad and with LiIon it is even less.
Around 1000 recharges for NiMH, and around 800 for LiIon. Of course
YMMV depending on quality of charger, how quick they are discharged,
storing without charge, age, etc.

This is the best site I have ever seen for reviews of the different
batteries and chargers.
