    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Cheep price for AA rechargeable battery & nice design.
    Nothing else beside that.

    Cons:

    1. Way over rated batteries.
    2. Bad Build Quality.
    3. Some chargers failed charging them.

    OtherThoughts:

    Bought 12 of those batteries from other seller & up to now used 10 of them.
    Charging using MAHA MH-C9000 reveled that the actual capacities are as follows: 670,662,678,654,662,639,718,655,678,645 with average of ~660mAh which is way below 2500mAh rating & even significantly below the 900mAh statement here.
    Calculated cost per 1mAh is (4.54/4)/660 = 0.172 cent per 1mAh.
    Comparing it to Soshine 2500mAh 4 pack which got average of ~2130mAh gives (9.97/4)/2130=0.117 cent per 1mAh.
    So even in terms of value for money those batteries are definitely not a good pick.
    The only real Con for those batteries is that it will be suitable for low power consumption devices such as remote controls.

    Bottomline:

    .If you are looking for batteries for low power consumption devices then that might be an option. Other then that it will be better keeping away from them.
