    Does anyone have any opinion on what is the best AA rechargeable battery? I am tired of stuffing the land fill with used batteries and our recycle group won't take them.

    Thanks, Don

    There was a big thread about this like a week ago. I suggest using the search function.

    Hint: eneloops are the best

    I am unfamiliar with the term "recycling group." I am assuming it is a private recycling center, as opposed to a government-sponsored hazardous waste disposal facility. If so, doesn't your local government have a hazardous waste disposal program? Most here do.

    I didn't know Eneloops were well regarded. I gave a bunch away to my boss a few years ago because I rarely used them. (I don't often use speedlights, but she does.) Darn! :D

    Save them up and drop them off at the closest Best Buy big box store, Kanata isn't that far from you.
