I've had great performance from my Wiimote using these batteries.

Yes, they are rechargeable batteries but they are not NiMH or 1.2V. These batteries are magnesium but put out alkaline like 1.5V required by many electronics. A lot of people dont know that Lenmar actually has a rechargeable 1.5v battery in the AA and AAA form.

My only wish is that they expand this line to C, D and 9volts but the customer service rep said they have low sales on these. I wonder why, they work great. They power all my kid's toys and I haven't had any problems with them. If you get them you do need to invest in their special charger for it. The NiCD and NiMH chargers do not work.

Yes I know some have success with the NiMH based 1.2v AA's as well. TYVM.

OK. I did not on the other hand and with many other electronics that require 1.5v AA's.

That's strange I did not see the special non nimh battery on their site are you sure they are not nimh? I have been using Lenmars for a while I have the Nomem pro 2300mah these are made in China. My battery coatings have little bubbles, from the heat of charging, my charger is one of those industrail chargers that can charge aa-dd and 9v as well. I am always looking for better batteries, my next purchase might be those special 2700 mah, but these work fine.

OK I did see some link but the mah rating are really low on those CA64 and only 1500 mah. Yes they say it's 1.5 volts, but in my book ma win out over voltage. I guess they have high voltage, but low current, does anyone have a spec sheet, I could not find one.

I'm using a Maha charger which came with Power-Ex AA batteries through newegg. They seem to be working fine and they are NiMH.

Whatever the ratings are they are as good as a Duracell so still better than that. You might like it to last longer but so far all the sensitive equipment that say require alkaline voltages respond better with this or real alkalines.
