Chicago Electric Power Systems Rechargeable NiCd AA Batteries -- Christmas Shoppers Avoid These

Jul 22, 2009 (Updated Sep 7, 2009)
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Work good the first six months.

Cons:After six months of use they are just out right junk.

The Bottom Line: If I could rate the item as zero out of five stars, I most definitely would and have no bad feelings about doing such.


I got these in attempt to save money on batteries but they do not hold a charge very long after a year's worth of use.


Cost

I paid $5.99 plus tax and sometimes on sale for $3.99 plus tax.


Place of Manufacture

These batteries are made in China.


Endurance


The endurance of the batteries is pretty good for NiCad (Nickel Cadmium) batteries the first six months of use in a wireless keyboard, wireless mouse, and Mini Maglite AA. The wireless keyboard would run about 16 days at first then down to 4 days after a years worth of use. The wireless mouse would run about 10 days at first then about a little over two days. The Mini Maglite would run for about five hours at first then year later would run a little over an hour if I was lucky.

You are supposed to be able to recharge them at least 800 times before they go bad and I charged them at least ten times. It takes 14 hours at the standard charge rate of 70 mAh.


Appearance

They look like the real McCoy and have not fallen apart or anything sort of that type of problem.


Feel

They are lighter than alkaline battery by almost half with judging with my hand. They are sturdy physically (unlike some other batteries I have had that were foreign made that got mushy after using).


Disposal

For proper disposal stores like Sears & Kmart usually have battery recycling bins at select registers in the store; however, the best way to get rid of them is to call your local dump and find out if they recycle them.


Recommend

No, I do not recommend these as they just do not deliver on performance long enough to be worth while.


Final Thoughts


Avoid these like the plague and do not use them or buy them.
