Eneloop Success

I bought a couple of Sanyo Eneloop rechargeable batteries to try out their claims. Thus far, I've found them to be true. The Eneloop technology claims to sustain charge longer as well as a higher voltage level. Which means they should last longer while being used and while being stored. My geocaching bag has been sitting fairly idle for most of the winter months and the extra batteries I kept stored in it had idled the whole time. When I went to use them this week, 2 sets of regular Ni-MH batteries were discharged beyond usable levels, while the Eneloop batteries were still showing full voltage. Using the batteries as well, I've noticed they seem to last a bit longer than others. No quantitative measurements here, but my impression is that they are doing better than others I have. Pricing is comparable and they can be charged just like a Ni-MH in the same chargers.
