> This is for a simple analog wall clock, so I’ll go out and get AAs once it starts to get out of time.

Get rechargeable AA batteries next time. I recommend you get these ones (make sure your battery specifications match the packaging in this photo):

u/Gundersniff · 45 pointsr/xboxone

Get Eneloops, they're the best.

u/Daehder · 17 pointsr/Nerf

Assuming you are referring to 9V batteries like these, that will actually be a downgrade from normal AA cells, as 9 V batteries are actually a 6 pack of AAAA batteries.

While the voltage sound like it would be higher, AAAA are even worse than AA cells at delivering current, which is what is responsible for spinning motors up to speed. Thus, the motors will spin up even slower, and the voltage will sag massively.

​

If you intend to run that extra foot of Faux barrel, you'll pretty much need to rewire for a lipo or NiMH pack to get any reasonable performance.

If you are just looking for a no-effort mod, Eneloops are the safest way to do so. Their much higher current capabilities mean that they'll outperform even D alkaline cells, which are what Hasbro use to power their more powerful blasters, and they're pretty inexpensive to boot

u/NunsOnFire · 14 pointsr/xboxone

If cats are a hazard to charging wires, I suggest luring them into a room in the house that no one will use for a short while (cat food and their favorite toys usually does the trick. they'll be a little skeptical at first but they'll nestle in to the strange room quickly), lock them in the door ensuring that the cats have no exits at all in there, even emergency exits, step 5: turn on the carbon monoxide displacer you installed earlier and routed to that room in specific (it is the silent killer after all or whatever), finally explain to everyone the tragedy of finding your cats dead on the floor, maybe even include a bloody knife into the equation suggesting gang-related cat on cat violence (you're lying at this point; it was you who killed them). With them gone you can now safely own a charging dock for your Xbox One controllers. You can even get two.

If that's too complicated them I would suggest looking into rechargeable batteries with their own separate charger for the wall outlet, no wires at all here.

Get this Eneloop kit instead, so much better and more versatile.

u/Palidore · 11 pointsr/oculus

Eneloops are where its at. Definitely recommend the ones I linked instead of the higher-capacity ones which squeeze out a little more juice per charge, but has far less charge cycles (500 vs 2100). This version includes a charger, if you're in need of one.

Also note that each Touch controller only uses a single AA battery.

u/vgf89 · 9 pointsr/oculus

You can get the exact same charger with a 4 included eneloops for cheaper than the charger alone: https://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-K-KJ17MCA4BA-Individual-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B00JHKSMJU

u/Gilzabizlo · 9 pointsr/xboxone

Buy this.
Eneloops - Amazon

Thank me later.

u/elkemist · 9 pointsr/xboxone

I used the energizer one for a while and it was ok, then I bought some Panasonic Eneloops and I'm never going back. They can be used for other devices as well and they last forever.

edit: Panasonic Eneloops These are the ones I have.

u/Corm · 8 pointsr/WindowsMR

I recommend this one at $18 because the it's an individual charger, and in my experience the batteries last for years.

This one is more popular and good too, but I replaced it with the other one because my batteries weren't lasting as long as they should (1 year instead of several), and I suspected it was overcharging them a bit. But it's $20 so who cares.

u/Virisenox_ · 8 pointsr/flashlight

Budget option: ThruNite T10: $20, 210 lumens (neutral white)

High durability options: Any of these (Not to say the other ones can't take a beating)

High end option: ZebraLight SC5c: $70, 4000K, 475 lumens, >90 CRI

Buy some Eneloops. They perform better, they won't leak and corrode your lights, and they'll save you money in the long run.

u/smelltheglove-11 · 7 pointsr/xboxone

Got mine a few weeks ago and I love them. Only 16.99 on Amazon, comes with 4 batteries and the charger.

u/parametrek · 7 pointsr/flashlight

The good news is that most rechargeable batteries are standardized.

You are correct that there is a vast array of options. $100 even gets you some of the best lights on the market. What sort of quality are you looking for? If you want to get the best then consider a Zebralight SC53Fc and some eneloops. This also gives you the fallback option of non-rechargeable AAs and it is a very pocketable flashlight.

More output would require an 18650 and a larger light. For example the Zebralight SC64c LE. Add in a battery and a charger and that just barely clears the budget.

Of course it is also easy to do it for half the cost. Thrunite T10 II for an AA light or Thrunite Neutron 2C for an 18650 light.

u/shmmrname · 7 pointsr/xboxone

Here's my little bits of advice:


Games with Gold: If you have an XBL gold membership, please 'buy' (xbox.com) the free games on both systems, even if you don't currently have one of them. If you don't have an XB1 yet, you're essentially just building a bigger potential library if you get the console in the future. If you're on XB1, you're creating a larger backwards compatible library.


Accessories: Add storage via nearly any USB 3.0 external hd (there's millions of suggestions for specific models via a search of this subreddit). I suggest Eneloops over the play-n-charge kit. XBL gold membership is roughly $35/year frequently, never pay full price and keep in mind it's "stack-able". Install SmartGlass on your mobile devices. Install the Xbox app on your Windows 10 devices.


Games/Values: If you're interested in any EA game, give EA Access a look ($30/year). Bing Rewards is a nice way to pad your digital wallet. Value-based subreddits I'd suggest: /r/GameDeals, /r/GreatXboxDeals and /r/ConsoleDeals. Weekly sales threads tend to pop up on /r/XboxOne before they're published, and if you want to see all current discounts check out storeparser.


Game Recommendations:
SMITE is a free-to-play moba that's become a go-to game for me a few times each week. It's easy to learn, but there's depth to keep you learning new strategies/skills even months after you've started. I really can't believe how much I like this game. I think everyone should at least try it.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is gorgeous, and it improves upon nearly everything the original reboot (already a good game) attempted. I love the game.
Sunset Overdrive is fun from start-to-finish, and it's one of the most unique games I've played. The art style is infectious, and I loved the game more each time I played it. However, I didn't particularly appreciate much of the multiplayer.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is a step above the other LEGO games, and it's an absolute hit for co-op sessions. Similarly, Diablo 3 excels at co-op, even if it's something that doesn't seem like a typical title for your group.
There's many others I'd recommend, but I'm sticking to the top-most I'd recommend to any new Xbox One owners. There's a ton of opinions you can find on this subreddit if you're interested in any game. Also, if you're not sure about something: look for Twitch streams or YouTube videos before you take the plunge.


Leftovers:
Always check out Friend Request Friday to find people you can play with. I love podcasts, here are my recommended podcasts. I use Feedrabbit to get e-mailed updates from Major Nelson.


Finally, I recommend helping out when you can by visiting the Mentor Monday threads. It's a very easy way to help, and (in my opinion) it's one of the best threads each week in this subreddit.

u/Moonlord_ · 7 pointsr/xboxone

Any charger intended for NiMh batteries will work but it's worth the investment to get a decent smart charger. You'll get longer life and fuller charges out of your batteries. They can also give you info for matching battery pairs effectively, bringing weak batteries back to life, and determine when a battery is getting weaker.
Also stay away from "rapid chargers" that charge in an hour or less...they are horrible for your batteries and will kill them off quickly.

I recommend something like the Maha Powerex Wizard One charger which you can find on Amazon, etc. At the minimum the new Panasonic chargers that come with the newest Eneloop models are pretty decent for a pack-in smart charger. They have 4 individual charging circuits, peak detection when the battery is full, and charge at a gentle rate.

u/CODMuffinMan · 7 pointsr/consoledeals

I'd recommend these instead, I've had them for around 8 months now and they're really good. A lot better than going through a 48 pack of duracells every month or two

u/TranceDoctor · 6 pointsr/xboxone

You're honestly better off buying the new one because then you know you'll always own the games and you get a brand new warranty. You also get 500gb more space.

I bought this to use as my batteries and it's great.

u/DrunkenFist · 5 pointsr/xboxone

I use these instead. a bit cheaper than the p&c kit, batteries have good life, and you can actually use them for other things if you need to.

u/Zak · 5 pointsr/flashlight

Something you should know is that the T10, like all higher-output flashlights powered by AA batteries, is designed for use with NiMH rechargeables.

Alkalines will work in a pinch, but full output on high won't be sustainable for very long, and battery life on high will be short. Alkalines also have a tendency to leak and ruin devices. The T10 leaves plenty of room in your budget for a pack of Eneloops with charger.

u/Ericbazinga · 5 pointsr/OculusQuest

Go with this. $20, gets you 4 AA batteries plus a charger. The controllers only need one each so you can use one pair while charging the other, then swap.

u/adum_korvic · 5 pointsr/Games

Nah that doesn't work. You should just buy a bundle that includes an eneloop battery charging bay.

Here's the 4 pack with a charging bay that I bought, it's 18 bucks.

u/mcfarlie6996 · 5 pointsr/flashlight

>Basically I'm looking for one that runs on AA batteries, is relatively easy to pocket or doesn't take up too much space on my duty belt; something decently bright to cut through foliage and search for objects/people.

>I've been looking at the Nitecore EA41/21 and MT2A.

"Cut through foliage". So you're looking for something with good throw/tight hotspot? Just remember, the larger the reflector, the more throw. The EA21/MT2A isn't going to have the throw that the EA41 has due to the smaller reflector on them. There's really no good throwers in those smaller sizes but for the EA41 size, I'd suggest getting the Thrunite TN41 XP-L HI instead which puts the EA41 to shame. This guy is 5mm shorter but 5mm wider but the thing that excels in this guy is the XP-L HI emitter which is designed for even more improved throw over other emitters on the market.

As many suggest, rechargeable are the way to go which I'll show you. I've actually borrowed the EA41 from my buddy to test which here is the runtime on High output. As you can see the NiMH rechargeable Eneloop batteries put both Energizer and Rayovac to shame. Yes Eneloop may be more expensive up front but they can be recharged up to 2000 times. So even though we know in the graph that 4 Eneloop batteries out-perform 4 Alkaline batteries, lets just pretend that they were equal. So you can get a 4 pack with a charger for $18 which would replace at least 8000 Alkaline batteries (4 rechargeable AA x 2000 recharge cycles). Can you get that many Alkalines for that price? Buy a backup 4 pack and you just replace another 8000 batteries along with having a backup of your own set so you'll always have a fresh set of batteries waiting on the charger.

One note, if you ever do think you'll get into Lithium-Ion batteries, I'd suggest getting a different charger like the Nitecore D4. I have this guy which can charge both Li-ion & NiMH batteries of many many sizes.

As for Lithium-Ion flashlight suggestions (just to throw them out there), the Armytek Predator XP-L HI is nearly best in class which it should have the same throw as the Thrunite mentioned above. It has a 5mm smaller head, obviously the body is thinner, but it's 40mm longer due to the tail-switch. Also check out the Nitecore MH27 which is nearly similar but has a little better user interface. An added note for the Predator that uses an 18650 Li-ion battery, a single high capacity 18650 battery out-performs over 6 AA Alkaline batteries, even though it's not much bigger than one. This means you can get more power and runtime in smaller applications. Plus these can be recharged as well for 500 cycles so they replace over 2500 AA batteries.

u/Im2Nelson4u · 5 pointsr/Gameboy

Eneloop is my favorite.

The standard version is cheap and performs very well (2000mah) and widely available at most stores

https://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-K-KJ17MCA4BA-Individual-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B00JHKSMJU


The XX or pro version is expensive and only last 500 charges but hold 25% more power (2500mah) which will mean an additional couple of hours

I prefer the pro version if you can get it cheap since 500 charge cycles will last you atleast 2 years of use on a portable like the gameboy. Found them on sale at my local camera store for $20 during the holidays

while I use the regular version on devices that gets charged daily like my gaming mouse

u/Matty1138 · 5 pointsr/xbox360

There's a similar product with Panasonic Eneloop branding now. The price is cheaper and the charger is much better, according to the battery-reviewing guy on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-K-KJ17MCA4BA-Individual-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B00JHKSMJU/ref=cm_cr_dp_asin_lnk

u/mull3t · 5 pointsr/xboxone

Could try updating the controller, if it was recently purchased you've got 30 days I'd return it and say it was defective. In the department of batteries [Save yourself the trouble and buy these. Bar none the best rechargables ever made.] (https://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-K-KJ17MCA4BA-Individual-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B00JHKSMJU/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1483808622&sr=8-7&keywords=eneloop+batteries)

u/drfoqui · 4 pointsr/wii

I'm not sure if your hate for AA batteries includes the rechargeable kind but I think the most practical solution is eneloops (or any good rechargeable AA batteries). I use these and they are great. It is cheaper than any Wii battery pack and you can use them for other devices.

u/DerDaku · 4 pointsr/xboxone

Well, since the Apple Batteries are basically just rebranded Eneloops, yes, its overpriced.
Get yourself this and this. You'll pay a little bit less, have two more batteries and a nice charger for charging up to 4 batteries at a time.

u/MeestaJohnny · 4 pointsr/xboxone

I wasn't a huge fan of it and instead went with some eneloops. They were cheaper and they last quite a bit longer than the rechargeable pack (I dont know by how much). But I've had these for years and they've done me right. Cant go wrong.

Here's the link:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JHKSMJU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_-jC6CbMEFY814

u/SirEDCaLot · 4 pointsr/xboxone

Get Eneloop batteries. That's 4 batteries and the charger for $18.

Amusingly, Eneloop batteries seem to last longer in the XB1 controller than normal AAs...

u/shadama · 4 pointsr/xboxone

Just remember most eneloops can be recharged 2100 times the pros are only good for 500 or so charges.

Edit: here would be my reccomendation instead and its only 20.00 bucks

http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-K-KJ17MCA4BA-Individual-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B00JHKSMJU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1417023498&sr=8-1&keywords=eneloop+charger

u/GT_GZA · 4 pointsr/xboxone

None. Don't waste your money on the proprietary battery packs and chargers. Get some good rechargeable AA batteries, preferably Eneloop, and a decent charger (multiple options there). Rechargeable AAs are cheaper, last longer, and are more versatile because can use rechargeable AA (and AAA) in many, many common devices. Search Eneloop on Amazon, and you'll find many different options with various numbers/sizes of batteries and many include a charger. The bundled Eneloop-branded charger will be adequate for most people's needs.
Just an example--4 AA Eneloops and charger for $16:
https://smile.amazon.com/Panasonic-K-KJ17MCA4BA-Individual-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B00JHKSMJU/

These are way better than the proprietary junk.

u/SoCaLLbeer · 4 pointsr/xboxone

Play and charge kits are typically poor quality. Was on Xbox 360 as well. Get a good set of rechargable AAs with a good charger.. they last longer between charge and you always have a charged pair ready to go. I use these they are awesome, charger is per cell so no matching needed. ..

Zebralight H52w. Goes from .01 lumens all the way up to 300 for $64. Spend an extra $17 and get some Panasonic Eneloop (or eneloop pro) batteries and an advanced charger. A tad over budget but you'll have a powerful, long lasting, neutral tint light that can run on any AA size battery, and it can easily be used as a headlamp with the included band, and it has a removable, multi-position pocket clip.

u/hulksmash865 · 3 pointsr/xboxone

The X will handle the games AND movies! First I've heard of the S being better at movies. Get some rechargeable batteries like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JHKSMJU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I had been using the official play and charge kit until getting these and they last much longer! All the Xbox One controllers should work with the X. Not sure about 3rd party controllers, but the Microsoft brand will. If you can, purchase an extended warranty. But definitely the X is a great system and great timing since Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming out!

u/thaddeusblunt · 3 pointsr/xboxone

I just got these http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JHKSMJU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1



So far they have been great. You will always have a fully charged battery back up ready to go and you can use these for other things besides xbox controllers. I was in your same situation and the pros of the eneloops outweigh the pros of the play and charge. My play and charge kit for the 360 broke pretty fast too. Eneloops are the way to go

u/Narutosuns2fan · 3 pointsr/xboxone

Actually a new set of eneloops with the charger is half the price of this, although I totally get wanting to keep your controllers away from your kids.

u/Rycan420 · 3 pointsr/xboxone

Correct about he batteries, but don’t buy a cheap charger. You’ll spend an extra $4 for the best on Amazon...

Amazon Link

If you check the reviews on Amazon there is a guy that give extensive reviews on batteries and chargers. He’s really impressed by this one and this price.

I can confirm it’s been great. Charges all brands, and doesn’t require charging 2 at a time like the cheaper chargers.

Battery might be a dud or on the way out. 3 out of 4 packs I bought worked for me, one died after a few months; after that I switched over to these Eneloop batteries and never looked back, they work great with the Elite controller.

u/Sokurah · 3 pointsr/wiiu

>From what I read the Wii U Pro Controller lasts forever and can be charged by by connecting to the Wii U. Is this correct?

They say the battery life is around 80 hours, and for all I know it is, but I've never needed to use any controller that long without charging it. It does last for a long time, though, and it can be charged by connecting it to the Wii U (mini USB - cable's in the box).

As for the rechargeable batteries, I bought my brother a few pairs of these a couple Christmases ago and he swears by them:

I actually use Disposable Alakalines currently , since they are so cheap at Costco. But I have been researching cause I know I am killing the planet with the amount of batteries I go through using WMR.

So Based on recommendations and the fact that Costco carries them as well, Eneloop's seem to the consistently the highest rated and best performing Rechargeable on the market. The Cells are made in Japan, but the Chargers are from China, but most people I know recommend them highly.

Also there will always be 1 star reviews of anything. Just like people complain about WMR. 99% of the people could have no issues, but always going to be 1% that ends up with faulty/defective equipment, or abuse them or use it in a manner not recommended. I would not worry about it.

This (which you can regularly get for $9) + This (Amazon's out of stock at the moment). Then you've got the added bonus of extra rechargeable batteries. Should the motor in the brush ever go bad, big deal, $9-15 (mine's been strong for over 2 years now).

u/phineas1134 · 3 pointsr/batteries

I just did some testing on the duracell Optimums. They are not worth the money. Your best bet is to go rechargeable and get some Eneloops. If for some crazy reason you need to see what battery will last absolutely the longest on a single use, primary lithiums like Energizer Ultimate Lithium will easily outlast any alkaline batteries.

Edit: Added some links for you.

u/Gary_Burke · 3 pointsr/xboxone

Amazon has a four pack with a charger for $20. It's a great deal for the best batteries on the market. I put a pair in my controller on launch day, then proceeded to play a shit-load of battlefield. A week later I changed them while looking at Battlelog, which said I had put in 32 hours that week. 32 hours on one pair of rechargeables. Amazing.

u/Piktro · 3 pointsr/photography

The corner / wall method is your best option for minimal equipment. White walls are best, grey walls would work too. You will need a single flash or strobe with a cheap light stand / umbrella, and ideally a tripod / tethered laptop to make sure shots are consistent and ensure exposure looks good. Normally you would need a trigger for the flash, but you can use your pop-up flash as an optical trigger without affecting the exposure (covered in the video I linked below).

Cheap Stand / Umbrella ($29): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004HR0M4Q/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Cheap / Reliable Flash ($63): https://www.amazon.com/Yongnuo-Professional-Wireless-Speedlight-Flashlight/dp/B00EVMIHPS/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1510120921&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=yongnuo+yn+560&psc=1&smid=A23V097EB9TP7J

And the following items are not 100% necessary, but you can use them for anything in your house, not just the flash - and these batteries are fantastic.

Rechargable Batteries with Charger ($18): https://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-K-KJ17MCA4BA-Individual-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B00JHKSMJU/ref=pd_bxgy_23_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=RVHZJ9CHST6PRESKD9YC

Here's a video explaining single speed light portraits: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQCtYqqt5lk&t=960s
They have some similar videos too, worth checking out.

Just get your settings right with test shots, shoot raw, shoot full manual with an aperture of 5.6 or 8, ISO 100, 1/200 of a second. Your flash through umbrella will probably be at 1/4 or 1/8 power. The closer the light source is to the subject, the softer the light will be. Check your histogram to make sure you aren't blowing out any highlights. Tell people to wear basic, neutral clothes for the shoot, ideally not white, and have them all bring one alternate outfit just in case.

There is a lot that goes into it, but just watch some YouTube videos (Tony Chelsea, Gavin Hoey on Adorama), practice a bit with yourself, friends, family, and you'll be good to go.

I actually got one when I bought my Xbox One (tax refund, woo), but it doesn't work at all. The controllers don't seat in the charger so they don't charge. I'm leery of getting another, just because I don't want the same situation to happen.

I'm looking at these rechargeable Panasonic batteries and charger for about $15, they're not off-brand but they might save some money.

u/JRhodes88 · 2 pointsr/xboxone

This is pretty much expected. If you are using more features that are being powered through the same 2 AA batteries, there will be more drain then not having those extra features.

I'd recommend you get some of these Sanyo Eneloops for your controllers (and other electronics in your house)

My roommate has 12 that he swaps out throughout his devices and they're all working as great today as they did 2 years ago. I've had my set of 4 for about 4 months and they've been amazing. So much better than the play and charge kit. Also, if you have other micro USB cables I would try them because back when I had an Elite, only certain ones would charge it.

Don't buy Nyko anything. At least my experience has been bad with that brand.

My advice would be to buy Eneloops which are rechargeable and affordable AA batteries.

u/trAnwhiz · 2 pointsr/SteamController

The white Eneloops barely discharge when not used, which is important since you will have the 2nd pair charged and ready to replace the used ones when you run out of juice. You don't wanna pop in half charged batteries every time.

There are also higher capacity (~2500 mAh) Eneloops compared to the white ones (1900 mAh) but that comes at the expense of lifespan / charge cycles. The white ones are ultra durable, about 2000 charge cycles.

I did a research about the Explorer (since I noticed that people love their Explorers and they said good things about it) so I got interested in it as well and I think I can reccommend you to **not use the flip up display thing since it is sensitive and it can break easily** (instead use the Flashlight feature that allows you to see the real world using its cameras without taking off the HMD)

​

As for the BT donle I heard good things about this **Plugable BT dongle** :

Also some GPUs require the right display port (in order to get 90 fps at max and not only 60 fps) so I am also going to buy the **Plugable Active DisplayPort to HDMI 2.0 Adapter**

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00S0C7QO8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

If you want a cheap AA option: Sofirn SP10A ($12) + Panasonic Charger Pack with 4 AA eneloop ($18). You can get both from Amazon.
or even cheaper Sofirn SP10A + 4 Amazonbasics rechargable batteries from Amazon (you may need to buy something else to get free shipping) + a Zanflare Lii 100 ($4) single slot charger from Gearbest.

For another 18650 option A: Zanflare F1 4500-5000K from Gearbest with usb charging + get a protected battery from either Ilumn (they have a protected 3500mah MJ1 for $6.50 + shipping), IMRbatteries or liionwholesale.
For another 18650 option B: If the fog is dense I would suggest the Sofirn SF36W with a 2800mah battery from aliexpress, which it's available on 3000K warm white and should penetrate better the fog.

u/bacon_jews · 2 pointsr/oculus

I had this once, batteries completely drained within 1 day. I figured it's probably because I was setting my controllers thumbstick down and they were triggered as active, but I can't prove that. Now I set controllers trigger down and I keep my Oculus runtime turned off when not using, just in case.

For batteries just get Panasonic Eneloop. You'll have two charging and two in controllers, just swap them when needed. It will pay back in no time, also more environmentally friendly.

u/BrewingHeavyWeather · 2 pointsr/flashlight

> To be frank, I don't fully understand all the differences yet. Any type of battery should be fine as long as it can be recharged or replaced fairly easily (i.e. via Amazon or regular hardware stores).

There's pretty much 1xAA, 2xAA, 1xCR123, 2xCR123, and 18650 (not all 18650 flashlights take CR123s!). CR123 is, IMO, a nicer form factor, for handling, but rechargeable energy density is crap, TBH. AA gives you the most versatility. But, avoid alkalines whenever possible, for flashlights. For AA size, depending on flashlight, either go with 14500, or Japan-made Eneloops (Duracell and Amazonbasics both have rebranded versions of these at good prices).

AA NIMH have a nominal voltage range of 1.0-1.25V. 14500 fit in the same space, with 3.6-4.2V, should a single AA flashlight allow greater voltage. Often, that will give you greater max output. OTOH, you'll have to be really careful if lending the light to anyone else. Today, though, most get pretty good output on AA NIMH. Japanese Eneloops are the best rechargeables out there, and can be found under Panasonic's name, Amazonbasics', and Duracell (if buying at a B&M store, look for made in Japan on the back). I've had those, and knock-offs (like Rayovac's), and over time, with real world use, the difference is not subtle. I have not used Chinese Eneloops, myself, but largely because reports by users, and tests on them, indicated similar behavior to the knock-offs I'd had. The Japanese ones just keep on going.

18650 is a little bigger than 2xCR123, and has a nominal voltage range of 3.6-4.2V. 2xCR123 have a nominal range of around 2.5-6V. 18650 has the most R&D going into it, being the most popular size (it's what is in laptops and power tools, among other things), so you get the most energy storage for the size, weight, and money. But, it does not have a comparable primary cell to swap it with, so make sure the flashlight in question can take 2xCR123 as backup (if not stated that way, make sure it can take at least 6V input).

You can get good chargers and batteries for $15-20 total, for about any handheld sizes (make sure to get a charger that has independent bays, if going AA NIMH - example), so your $75 budget is pretty realistic, and honestly, gives you tons of options.

Also, if you keep up with your rechargeable cells, costs of Lithium primary batteries (including AAA and AA) will not be much, in the long run. A leaky alkaline AA can do a lot of damage, so I would advise against using them if there is any other option; and the actual costs over time are fairly small, when you're usually just partially discharging the rechargeable cell(s) in between top offs, 90% of the time.

Panasonic-made CR123s are the quality ones to buy, if going that route for primaries. They can be had online for around $1.50/ea., so comparable with, or slightly cheaper than, AA Lithiums. You can also buy them at not-exorbitant prices at hardware stores and outdoors stores, and probably gun shops. Surefire, Streamlight, and Duracell, are all made at the same plant, and are all good quality. Some cheaper ones, like the popular Tenergy, are known for aging poorly, and getting unbalanced quickly. If mainly using rechargeable cells for day to day use, I don't think saving money that way provides good value.

> A good mix of throw and flood seems best. I don't want something too far toward either end of the spectrum.

While I'm not a big fan of their UIs (though the Pro does seem nicer than non-Pro, IMO), I think Armytek's TIR lights have the best balanced beams for EDCs, in the $40-60 range, with a wide spot, and plenty of flood.

May be what you're looking for. Purchased two myself and they work like a charm. Amazing reliability and simplicity. Pretty well priced too for about 30% cheaper than a play and charge and could effectively run two controllers.

Hey man, I meant to reply to you earlier, but I was going to work.
The issue you described is similar to an issue I had just over a year ago, except it was an el cheapo Walkman FX-28 but nonetheless, it could help. Read my post and listen to my sample audio. Skip around to near the end for more distortion. I eventually figured out that every battery I was putting in there was drained. I know it sounds stupid and insults your intelligence a bit, but try fresh alkaline batteries. None of that cheap Sunbeam or dollar store blue Panasonic bullshit. I'm talking straight Duracell and Energizer. Even better though, Panasonic Eneloops Best rechargeable batteries on Planet Earth period. Plus IIRC, your Walkman uses 4 batteries and this pack comes with 4 precharged batteries as well as a simple, yet effective charger.

Now, I also happened to disassemble my Walkman at the same time as when I changed my batteries to fresh ones. It may have been that I freed something, possibly the belt, that may have been previously stuck or grinding somewhere causing my issue. I know your issue isn't speed, but I had distortion as well.

Your issue might also be most likely due to your dirty volume potentiometer. Get some DeoxIT and spray that bitch and rock it back and forth. I forget the right kind to use, but luckily, I made a post on TapeHeads.net asking exactly that question. Read the long reply and you'll know what to use.

90%, this is your solution right here, provided your batteries are fresh and nothing else is horribly wrong with your Walkman. I read that the D6 and D6C have problems with grease turning to glue and it's pretty common. That can cause at best, some wow and flutter and at worst, tape eating or refusing to work at all. You should look at getting it fixed by the guy in Slovakia who goes by Dr. Walkman, mihokm, or Marian. He does excellent work on restoring these things.

Hope this helps.

Not paid by Panasonic, just my honest opinion.

I'll play devil's advocate for the use of AA batteries controllers in current year (I have the powerA GameCube controller).

You can always use rechargeable ones; Panasonic Eneloops have been great for me so far for $20 USD. They have a long lasting charge and it took me a good three weeks of intermittent smash Bros play to drain them completely.

It's awesome to be continuously wireless. When your current pair die, Chuck two fresh ones in and keep going. Recharge your old ones when you get home.

I'm a diy person, but it's nice knowing I wont have to open my controller up to replace the battery, too.

Tbh I would rather have a standard rechargeable controller, but I don't think you should let the battery issue dissuade you from purchasing one you like.

A pack of 4 AA eneloops and a charging station is $16.49 on Amazon... No idea where you're getting $65.00 from.

An official Xbox One Play and Charge Kit is $24.99, and that only comes with one battery... Another one will cost you $15.95 refurbished.

So that's $16.49 vs $40.94... and they'll last longer... and you never have to plug into the console... and you can use the batteries for anything that takes AA. So yeah, it would save you money and time.

I bought 3 of these g700s while they were down to 40-60$ and well in stock before what ultimately happened now being scarce and expensive. Probably never gonna switch from this mouse unless they come out with an exact replica like they did with the G700s from the G700.

This needs to be much higher. Why use wasteful single-use batteries when there's a rechargeable option that is nearly as good? I've replaced all of my household batteries with Eneloops as well.

Nothing is stopping you from using rechargable AAs. Frankly, I think standard AAs are a big plus compared to yet another proprietary battery.

Ah, there are external batteries that you can power the flash with, so that's what that cord would be for.

>So if I buy the Eneloops batteries I also need some sort of AC adapter charger for it? How do you recharge your Eneloops?

Correct. I'd just buy something like this kit which gets you 4 AAs and the charger. From then on, you just need more batteries (unless you want more chargers).

Thankfully Panasonic was wonderfully smart and made the chargers fit both AA and AAA, so if you decide to buy AAAs in the future you already ahve a charger with this kit. The AmazonBasics High Capacity Batteries are similar and do charge in the Eneloop chargers (I have Amazon batteries for use in things other than my speedlight).

Play & charge kit? These things suck unfortunately. The battery somehow miscommunicates with the system and says it’s charged when it really isn’t.

The way to fix it is by completely draining the battery until the controller doesn’t turn on even for a single second. When it’s completely drained then plug it in and fully charge it. It should take 3-4 hours for a full charge. Any less and something is wrong.

This process resets the battery. Otherwise just buy Panasonic Eneloops and forget about the play/charge kit. They act like normal AAs so you will never have to put up with this crap again.

With this package you should always have 2 batteries ready to go:

Sure thing, I got the 4 pack with the charger at Amazon: Eneloop 4 Pack

I remember reading somewhere on reddit about a different charger being better but I've had no issues with these. With it being a 4 pack, I always have 2 fully charged batteries ready to go. Also the added benefit is obviously using the batteries for other things, so that's cool too.

u/TwistedStack · 1 pointr/Philippines

Yes, they're rechargeable. I think I bought four AA batteries and the charger for 1.5k PHP years ago. Looks like it's a set of eight batteries and a charger on Amazon now. http://www.amazon.com/Sanyo-Eneloop-Charger-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B003VLAEPQ/

EDIT: This is what I got -> http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-K-KJ17MCA4BA-Individual-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B00JHKSMJU/

You should be able to buy it at camera stores. They're the only places I saw carrying eneloop batteries in Manila.

u/MoogleMan3 · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

No, you have to charge them with the charger that comes with the set.

u/byzantinedavid · 1 pointr/flashlight

Klarus Mi7 - this light WILL take 14500s.

Be careful, only certain colors from Amazon have pocket clips (make sure it shows a clip in the pictures)

Also, I second the ThruNite T10 (or in Titanium] with NiMH batteries.

I recommend you buy Eneloop rechargeables

They'll save you a ton of money in the end, are more reliable, and just better.

u/jupitersarmy · 1 pointr/OculusQuest

I’ve ordered some eneloop rechargeable batteries. Saw a few people here recommend them. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JHKSMJU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_H5j6CbHGBTTRA

u/BashOff · 1 pointr/xboxone

I bought a pack with 4 AA batteries and charger for around 15 bucks about a year ago. Here's the one I have

u/bob_mcbob · 1 pointr/Blind

The manual for the Ruby says it comes with rechargeable NiMH batteries and has a built-in charger for them. I gather you were using alkaline because you may need to swap batteries during a shift, so why not just buy an external charger and a dozen high quality NiMH batteries and never have to worry about paying for batteries again?

The best simple charger for NiMH is the Panasonic BQ-CC17. It's available in a kit with either AA or AAA, but the AAA price is a bit of a rip-off; you may as well get the AA version and order some AAA separately.

https://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-4x-Eneloop-AA-with-Charger/dp/B00JHKSMJU/

For batteries, get as many AmazonBasics AAA as you would like. They come in high capacity and regular versions, but the cost difference is a lot higher than the capacity difference, so just decide for yourself what you prefer.

https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Rechargeable-Batteries-8-Pack-Pre-charged/dp/B00CWNMXQW/

Important note: you should not mix NiMH and alkaline batteries in a device.

u/mrbooze · 1 pointr/gadgets

Also something like this is less than $20. Just swap as needed.

My girlfriend picked up a pair of Duracel Rechargables for us and they've been working great.

If you prefer the Microsoft route it's always reliable.

Or the ever popular Eneloop Rechargables

All 3 of those options last quite a long time, I've only tried the Duracel's but they've been fantastic for such a cheap price.

u/posternerd · 1 pointr/flashlight

Take a look at Selfbuilt's recommendations, categorized by types and numbers of batteries used:

http://www.flashlightreviews.ca/recommend.html

I recommend the 4x Eneloop AA and charger bundle from Amazon for gifting with AA lights. They're quality low-discharge batteries that should last quite some time.

u/rootbeerfetish · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Make sure the dongle you buy is Bluetooth 4.0. Yes it uses batteries. It comes with a first set but it's up to you to figure it out after that. Through some research I did I found this rechargeable battery kit. They last forever and you'll save money in the long run.

u/guruguys · 1 pointr/OculusQuest

Any low self discharge rechargeable batteries will work fine (they will say 'pre-charged, ready to use, low self discharge) on the package. The popular brand is Eneloop and you can get a set with a charger pretty cheap, but you can get the Amazon Basics or Ikea Ladda's that will work just as good in your controllers.

u/TellitToTheJudge · 1 pointr/OculusQuest

A set of four rechargeable AA batteries (for the controllers.) I recommend Eneloop branded.

As someone with glasses you should grab a pair of 3D printed lens protectors. These make it impossible for your glasses to touch the lenses. You can get a thicker protector if your glasses are more convex.

Get a hard shell travel case of some type.

The new slim PU leather covers from VRCover are nice. It adds comfort and makes your Quest more wipeable.

u/RisingTide84 · 1 pointr/OculusQuest

As someone who has scratched their lenses with their glasses, PLEASE buy some sort of lens protectors! I bought these in black https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3653631

And while not needed I also purchased the 3D printed brackets for the DAS mod. I bought the first design, but I think they have improved a bit since then.

I would also highly recommend the AMVR facial interface, it has a cut out specifically for glasses and it is super comfortable. https://www.amazon.com/AMVR-Interface-Bracket-Leather-Replacement/dp/B07VT3BM7P

I also bought the VR cover DAS padding because the DAS started to hurt the back of my head. the VR cover padding is AMAZING! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0749JN5G7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Finally, I picked these up rechargeable batteries and they hold a charge for a really long time. I would highly recommend them. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JHKSMJU/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Hope this list helps!

u/theflyingbaron · 1 pointr/oculus

Should do, but otherwise this doesn't break the bank and is fantastic. Two in the controllers and two charging, ready to be switched out at any time.

u/buffysbangs · 1 pointr/xboxone

Just get a set of eneloops and a charger ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JHKSMJU/ ). At least on the 360 the MS rechargeable pack was just a plastic case around 2 rechargeable AA’s the xb1 controller is probably the same.

u/frankiethah · 1 pointr/OculusQuest

This is what I got for $18 it comes with the charger and 4 eneloopes , I figured if they last me two to three days then I will have a spare pair to switch them out with and charge the others . They are rated for 2100 charge cycles and should last a while

u/emtilt · 1 pointr/wiiu

Normal rechargeable batteries are the easiest solution. There are tons of cheap battery+charger packs out there. Just pick one up next time you're out at a store, or get something like this on amazon:http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-K-KJ17MCA4BA-Individual-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B00JHKSMJU/

u/cubeenigma · 1 pointr/wiiu

Panasonic K-KJ17MCA4BA Advanced Individual Cell Battery Charger with eneloop AA New 2100 Cycle Rechargeable Batteries, 4 Pack, White https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JHKSMJU/ref=cm_sw_r_udp_awd_vBM0tb02SAC4Z0XH

Have these for my Wii notes and Xbox one controllers. Holds their charge even while not in use (slowly loses over time but not as extreme as standard rechargeables) And they come charged!

u/Darkcheops · 1 pointr/emulation

I haven't used anything besides the 360 controller with my PC so I can't recommend something better. Although I can say the D-pad leaves a lot to be desired.

I have found these to be far more reliable than the 360 battery packs and you can use them in other things besides just your controllers.

u/kb3pxr · 1 pointr/flashlight

I'm going to stay on the sidelines on the light recommendation, but I do have a charger/battery recommendation for AA. This Panasonic Package with 4 AA Eneloop cells and the charger are very good. You get the good Eneloop cells and a good charger. While the charger will take about 7 hours if the cell is fully discharged, that means it is a good charge rate. https://smile.amazon.com/Panasonic-K-KJ17MCA4BA-Individual-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B00JHKSMJU/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1511802072&sr=8-9&keywords=eneloop

u/lokbok · 1 pointr/mflb

You can get another one from Magic-Flight for $15. Personally, I'd just purchase one of those Eneloop sets that come with 4 batteries and a 4 battery charger. Those allow you to independently charge 4 batteries at once and the chargers themselves are actually highly rated by this Amazon reviewer (NLee Engineer or something) who specializes in battery chargers.

http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-K-KJ17MCA4BA-Individual-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B00JHKSMJU/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1463413150&sr=8-2&keywords=eneloop

I have at least 2 or 3 extra Magic Flight chargers I'm not using. I can look for em and send em your way but don't hold your breath on that. They're all still packed somewhere in a box I've had stored away since moving.

u/Captain_Midnight · 1 pointr/buildapc

If you get a pack of rechargeable batteries and a decently quick charger, then you won't need to buy non-rechargeable batteries repeatedly. Panasonic Eneloops have a reputation for high quality (they handle a high number of recharges with a minimal loss of charge capacity over time), and that package bundles the charger as well. I haven't found an AAA-sized package with the charger -- those have to be purchased separately). The charger works with both AA and AAA batteries.

u/secretlyloaded · 1 pointr/asksandiego

Yep, any bike shop will have a selection of headlights for bicycles. They clamp on the handlebars, generally. The cheaper ones are powered with AA batteries and some have a rechargeable battery pack. If you go with the AAs, it'll be worth investing in Eneloop rechargeable batteries.

If you have a basket on the front of your bike, it may obscure the light. Some people will ziptie a short piece of PVC to the front of the basket and then mount the light to that. Minoura also makes a basket clamp but they're hard to find in the US for some reason.

When I ride at night I use two headlights - an AA powered one that flashes, and this thing which uses a rechargeable battery back. It's insanely bright.

I haven't ridden through Logan Heights recently but my recollection is that it's pretty bikeable and downtown is an easy ride from there.

u/TalonX273 · 1 pointr/OculusQuest

Panasonic eneloops. They last about 5-7hrs of active use and take about 6-8hrs to charge. The 4 AA with charger set is enough, but additional batteries are nice to have anyway.

u/Darkmaster2110 · 0 pointsr/xboxone

What kind of batteries are you using? I've had the same batteries since I got my XB1 in 2014 and they still last about a day and a half to 2 days worth of play for me. I leave my controller on a lot of the day since I use my Xbox just to talk to friends a lot without actually playing anything, so my controller is on at least like 5+ hours a day usually.

I just bought a couple sets and I rotate between them. I use Eneloops. More specifically, I have this. I've read that the charger can make a difference sometimes. I went with the official one and have had no issues. It charges them at the right rate and it stops charging completely when they're done so they don't over charge.

u/BeavisBob · 0 pointsr/xboxone

Look up Eneloop AA batteries and chargers. A friend suggested I try them for my controller and I love them. I started off with a 4 pack and charger for under $17 (https://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-K-KJ17MCA4BA-Individual-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B00JHKSMJU) and have added more batteries to my collection because I use them in remotes, camera flashes and everything else. They hold a charge better than the official MS Charge and Play pack and I haven't had one fail yet.

u/TheAntman217 · -1 pointsr/pics

Or you can use these? Cheaper than Apple's lighting cable and recyclable.

u/AegisToast · -1 pointsr/xboxone

They last me as long as normal batteries, and I've had the same Eneloops for over 4 years. They still work as well as when I first got them.

Tip to those shopping for them: get a charger that charges individually, and based on charge levels. Some charge based on a timer, and some charge all of the batteries as a group, both of which can damage batteries over time.

I think this is actually the charger I got. Inexpensive and it works beautifully.
