Quick Overview

Latest technology in rechargeable batteries! Almost the same performance as Panasonic "Eneloop PRO" batteries, just a lot lower cost. Supplied ready charged for immediate use. Once charged will hold their charge for long periods.

Details

These rechargeable batteries can be charger up to 1000 times. They hold 80% of their capacity after 6 months and 70% after 12 months (depends on storage condition)

Vapex “instant” Batteries are the latest in rechargeable battery technology from one of the very few  companies in the world capable of producing this latest innovation in rechargeable battery technology.

It is well known that high quality NiMH rechargeable batteries outperform disposable ones (including even the very best alkaline batteries) in power hungry gadgets such as digital cameras, but there were 2 areas where they had problems..

  1. They had to be charged before first use.
  2. Once charged they would run down without even being put in anything, typically losing around 25% of the stored energy per month. Not really a problem when you are charging them frequently, but for low power or occasional uses this could become inconvenient.

Vapex “Instant” batteries utilise a new technology which solves these problems.The batteries are supplied charged, so just use them straight after purchase
The batteries discharge at a much slower rate than conventional NiMH batteries, so even a year after being charged there is still most of the initial charge available. So you get all the benefits of traditional NiMH rechargeable batteries, without the drawbacks - and you can still use a standard NiMH charger to charge them up again maximum charge current 2500mA)

Below are our actual test results of the Vapex Instant 2500mAh batteries against the Panasonic Eneloop PRO 2500mAh batteries. As the Panasonic batteries are generally accepted as being the best there is (about the most expensive too!) this just shows what exceptional batteries the Vapex instant 2500mAh ones really are.
We test all our products to ensure that the quality is just as it should be & here the results speak for themselves. Actual measured capacities: Vapex instant - 2512mAh, Panasonic Eneloop PRO 2550mAh. Batteries charged using our own 8-way AA charger.

I heard others bragging how good these are and for a decent you can buy them for, so I bought them to see how good they compared to others, and they seem to be very good really on the mAh when checked on my MH-C9000 WizardOne Charger-Analyzer. I see how the perform in the long-run. (Posted on 20/04/2016)

I have been using these batteries since the early 2.1mAH type and they have always worked well and held their charge for long periods. I am using them in Flash guns that do not get used often and in Radio control Transmitters and receivers and have been for years. I rate them 5 star they are great you will NOT be disapointed (Posted on 16/04/2015)

I've been using sets of these to power a digital accordion, and they have never let me down. It is very handy knowing that my reserve set will stay charged. I've put 4/5 stars as I am sure they can be improved even further. (Posted on 07/04/2015)
