I bought some household NiMH cells for my remotes the other day; the brand is Energizer, not Sanyo, but the claims on the card sound a lot like the ones for Eneloop batteries: They come precharged, and are supposed to be able to hold that charge for "up to 5 years". Are these the same thing?
Also, how fast can an Eneloop (or it's possible clone) be charged ("C" rating)? Assuming the charger being used is one that is engineered for fast/peak charging, I mean. Like the ones we use for our flight batteries (on NiMH setting, naturally.
I was thinking if I could find some of those teeny-tiny connectors used for the Hitec TX packs I could make a TX-pack -> Deans adapter and charge them on my regular charger. The long shelf life (plus perhaps a spare or two) would mean one less thing I would have to do the night before a flying day.
