What are the best rechargeable batteries that last the longest?


Answer by  aaronm (39)

This is obviously an opinion if you're asking what brand to use. But scientifically, the best type of rechargeable batteries are Nickel-Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) batteries. They have the shelf life of alkaline batteries, while still providing high and low drain performance for any device. They can be used with anything, from a TV remote to a digital camera.

There is a new type of rechargeable batteries: The hybrid Nickel-Metal Hydride (Ni-MH). They can hold their charge longer so you can use it on things like remote controls. However, they don't charge as quickly as the ones that are already out in the market. Some brand that have this battery available are: Eneloop and Hybrio.

Typically the best batteries aren't locked down to a specific brand, but rather a specific technology. The best rechargeable batteries would be Lithium Ion batteries. These have the longest life, shortest charge period and greatest longevity

The best rechargeable batteries with the longest lifespan are the Sanyo eneloop Rechargeables. They come pre-charged and self-discharge very slowly, ensuring that your battery life is spent on the electronics.

Alkaline and NiMH (Nickel-Metal-Hydride) batteries last very long. Both of them can be recharged. Popular brands include Duracell and Energizer. When you buy a set of batteries, some of them even come with the charging unit.
