Not very good batteries – Maxuss 1.2V 3000mAh Ni-MH AA Rechargeable Batteries (2-Pack) Reviews

Pros:
They are pretty solidly built. And some cheap batteries I've had before are strangely large but there is no such issue with these. They are still an okay capacity for an okay price.
Cons:
What can I say? These batteries simply do not live up to their rated capacity. I've been using my LaCrosse BC-900 Charger and putting these through multiple refresh cycles only yields a maximum capacity of 1900mah. There is simply no way these batteries hold 3000mah. I can get 4 Duracell 2650mah batteries for $10 off eBay and they hold their rated capacity so these are not that great of a value either.
Other:
Bottomline:
They're not that bad...but I'd recommend either the 2500mah Energizer or 2650mah Duracell batteries instead. They do not cost that much off eBay.
