    Thanks to ALL for your comments which are much appreciated. Varta appear to be a good choice.

    And many Enerloop are actually fakes, so I wouldnt buy them as you really wont know what you are actually getting.

    Varta's are so cheap I dont bother using my many rechargeables any more, especially as I no longer use my digital camera (I use my ph)

    Only if you're silly enough to buy them from eBay etc at 1/10th the price...

    I use rechargeable Duracell AA's bought from ebay in the States they are fantastic and hold the charge for a very long time if not used.

    I also use a lot of rechargeable 18650 batteries which I tend to buy off Mr Positive NZ, link here as he has good pricing, I also get replacement power tool batteries from here too for work.

    HUsband likes Energizers. Don't use many standard, we always have rechargeables now.

    Maha Powerex rechargeables for me.
    Did buy standard Phillips aaa from a $2 shop recently, lasted 1 week in Firestick remote. Can you say "knockoffs!"

    I like the silver alkalines by Energizers.

    I use few AAS now. Pretty much rechargeables but they are now AAAs (tv remotes have gone from AAs to AAAs). Most devices these days have their own rechargeable specific batteries - phones, laptops, cameras etc. My camera's external flash still uses AAs but for that the rechargeable Panasonic Eneloops are fantastic and they are easy on your wallet. But a no. of camera flashes are now coming out with specific rechargeable batteries too. I guess the odd wall clock uses AAs.
