Re: AA rechargeable batteries were always good value


I thought expensive.

Maybe cheap compared to Tesco,

But sometimes the standard rechargable just won't work. I have a digital camera that stubbornly fails with rechargables, and doesn't even care for your standard disposable either (and I'm not talking "dollar store" batteries). I find the ones it prefers are "photo batteries"; I'm presuming there's something to do with discharge rates (especially when using flash) that kills regular disposables, and rechargables simply can't do.
