Sorry, I missed this when responding to your other post. I was waiting and waiting for a response from you and didn't notice your second post for a few minutes. That's a decent deal as an 8-pack of Eneloops runs $17.99. I've actually written a review on the AmazonBasics Precharged AAAs if you want to check it out:
If you want a little cheaper the Tenergy Centura AAAs can be had pretty cheap at Battery Junction (get 5% off with coupon code cpf2011
). They are $4.25
per 4-pack + shipping. Even with shipping they should be a few bucks cheaper than the AmazonBasics and likely the more you get the cheap they'll be. I've had mine the least amount of time out of all my AAA but haven't had any problems in that time. All 4 of my Centuras exceeded the advertised 800mAh capacity at 860mAh to 921mAh. Out of my 8 AmazonBasics AAAs I got 864mAh to 937mAh tested capacity.

I just thought it would be good to start using rechargeable batteries and I would like to have more laying around as we keep getting hit by hurricanes and blizzards in jersey.
Then check out the Centuras and see what the per battery cost is shipped with different amounts of batteries (4, 8, and 12). Obviously having extra rechargeable batteries isn't really a problem. Either the AmazonBasics or Centuras would be a good buy.Edited by Ben the OCer - 9/19/13 at 8:41pm
