    I am using a canon 5d mark 11 with the 70 to 200 L lens and ex430 11 flash. After reading several reviews and checking prices at several retailers on line and in stores B&H has the best price for the eneloop batteries. I Purchased these to use in my speed light. After receiving them and ensuring that they had a full charge I inserted them into the speed light. Prior to this I was using Non rechargeable Alkaline batteries. With the non rechargeable batteries the flash would take several seconds to be ready to use, and recovery after a shot would take several seconds to recover and I could not use the high speed with out a delay. After inserting the eneloop batteries it was completely different, the ready light will come on as soon as I turned on the power switch and I can use the continuous shooting with no noticeable loss of power. In my first use of these batteries I used the flash for at least 4 hours taking over 100 pictures and still had battery power. definitely worth the purchase.

        Batteries were ready right out of the bow without charging. The recycle time of my SB910 improved tremendously compared to the 2000mAh rechargables I had previously. The batteries hold their charge for months. It's worth every penny.

              Comments about Sanyo Eneloop XX Rechargeable AA Ni-MH Batteries (8-Pack):

              Eneloop XX Rechargeable batteries feel fresh every time. They are the only batteries to use and trust. They carry it's charge longer than any other brand name battery cells I could think of. I use multiple Canon 580EXII on full power during weddings and corporate events with very low light and I put my speedlites to WORK! With a full day of shooting, I don't even think I've gone below half the batteries charge.

              I also use the Eneloop XX Rechargeable batteries in my Canon 5D MKII and MKIII battery grips. These batteries have never let me down and I will always continue to use them. OH and the batteries just look SO cool in all black!

                  I'm a pro photographer who relies on speedlites. These recharge quickly which is great. If only Canon could figure out how to keep their speedlites from overheating after only a handful of 1/4 or 1/8th power pops.

                    I purchased an earlier version of Eneloop batteries a couple years ago. Since then I have tossed in the recycle bin a ton of regular rechargeable batteries, but the eneloop still run fine. I upgraded to these new ones for my camera flash unit. Great long lasting battery right from the opened new package. No need to pre-charge them either. It takes many a shot to drain these suckers. Highly recommended for flash photography work

                    I use these little guys in my photography flashes - which is typically pretty hard on a battery. However, these guys are up to the challenge: they light it up over and over again and also even help an older flash recycle faster. And then, when the shooting's over, plug them in and tomorrow, you're good to go again! I love that I'm not throwing away at least 8 batteries per session into the trash (or recycled, either way) but reusing and getting the same great "brand new-just out of the package" charges. The only downside is the time it takes to recharge: but I believe that's just because I'm horribly impatient and I want them back now. Couldn't ask for more!

                              They come pre/charged and pack a serious punch w/my Nikon Strobes and ext.battery packs.
                              They stay charged for months and months.

                                    They last longer than the 2 rechargeable durobunnies I kept buying in the past. These batteries are better in quality, heavier and lasts longer; a noticeable difference but you will pay for that quality (however it's worth it). -Art Johnson - Embedded Systems Engineer, Madison Heights, MI.

                                      Comments about Sanyo Eneloop XX Rechargeable AA Ni-MH Batteries (8-Pack):

                                      For the longest time friends have been after me to use Eneloop batteries. I was using a good brand but having to replace them too often because of them no longer taking a charge or leaking. I only just started using the Eneloop but I can tell you I'm getting more shots with my SB-910's per set of batteries already. I'm sure I'll be please with their performance.

                                        These are by far the best batteries I have used in my Canon speed lights. They last for about 300 shots at 1/4 power when fully charged. Highly recommend them.

                                        Great cold weather battery. Working in freezing weather temps they last longer then the white enelope.

                                        I use these batteries mainly on my speedlights as well as my pocket wizards remote controls. They are very reliable and hold their charge for months after a full charge. I have used other brands and none compare to the performance of these Eneloop XX batteries.
