    Re: What batteries to buy for a flash?

    7dayshop's "Good to Go" range are similar to Eneloop in that they retain their charge for long periods. I've used them for some years and found them to hold charge for several months, maybe a year or more. Even Eneloops lose something like 15% charge over a year.

    Packs of 4 come with a handy case, too...

    Been using their 2900mAh batteries and lcd fast charger. Had these a few years, been fantastic and still performing faultlessly. Still available, charger updated version of the one I purchased.

    The Enelope and now perhaps the LADDA batteries claim to fame is that they keep their charge for much longer periods than most other rechargeables..........

    Not sure who will/might fill their retail gap. Suppose it will be internet based sales from now on.................

    In all fairness, if it's half price in Maplin, it's normal price everywhere else.

    A long time ago, Maplin used to be an amazing company, selling at the best prices and delivering the best value. They decided to go into retail shops and eventually became quite expensive. Now we see the result.

    I use lithium non rechargeables in my FL50. They're considerable lighter than others and have a long life with a good output.

    What batteries to buy for a flash?

    I've just about made up my mind to get a Godox TT685O and the radio trigger - but obviously I'll be needing some batteries to power it.

    I know everyone swears by Eneloops - are they the best choice, or would something else do as well (I don't anticipate being more than an occasional flash user)? And if it's to be Eneloops, are the regular ones okay, or should it be the Pro ones with the higher power rating?

    And what charger should one buy?

    I thought choosing the flash would be the hard part...

    Thanks for any input.
