Given all of this, would you think that the Eneloop AAs are twice as
good as the Aldi ones? I'm suspecting not, but as I've never used the
Aldis, and (I assume--correct me if I'm wrong) you've never used the
Eneloops, it is hard for us to compare experiences.
All I can say is that the Eneloops seem to hold a charge for well over
a month, and most of a charge for at least three months, based on my
experiences loading my digital camera with them.
You seem to know more about battery technology than most, and
certainly more than I, so I'm trusting your recommendation here.
