Looking for good rechargeable batteries for my mouse?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hi I have a Logitech g602 and I bought some Duracell rechargeable nimh batteries that are 1,2 volts/2400mAh about a year or two ago and they came with a charger but it never seems to be able to charge the batteries to their full capacity. And whenever I recharge the batteries they seem to only become half charged even after multiple charging attempts. I have also charged them at least thirty times since I bought them since on the package when I bought them it says it can take up to ten charges before they full charge. So I'm thinking either the batteries are defective or the charger that came with them is really bad. Should I try another battery brand and if so which one's should I buy? I would also like to know of a good smart charger I could buy as well because the charger that came the batteries probably isn't a smart charger. On the back of the charger it says it's a Class 2 nimh battery charger but says nothing about being a smart charger from what I can see.

Panasonic Eneloop. I purchased 8 of both AA and AAA and have been very satisfied with the results.

I was gonna suggest these batteries. I have the old Sanyo Eneloops. I didn't know that Panasonic acquired Sanyo.


Old Sanyo batteries have 1800 charges while the Panasonic ones 2100.

For rechargeable batteries, I tend to find digital cameras that accept the same battery type, and check reviews on those to see how they perform

9 times out of 10, a battery that gets good ratings with camera use tend to be fantastic for much lower operating devices like mice or keyboards

I think I'll buy the Panasonic Eneloop batteries that xartic1 recommended since I did a little research after and they seem to be one of the best rechargeable battery brands to use. Does anybody know a good smart charger to buy as well? I'm not really familiar with them since I never really used wireless devices or devices that needed batteries until recently so I'm ignorant of the subject.

When you get the Eneloops, check the fine print on them to see if they were made in China or Japan; they don't last as long or hold as much of a charge if they were made in China. If you do get Chinese-made Eneloops, you may want to exchange them for either a different pack of Eneloops, or newer pre-charged Fujitsus as a Fujitsu subsidiary owns the Japanese factory that makes the majority of Eneloops, and their own AAs/AAAs seem to be about identical to Eneloops.

I have found a reviewer by the name of NLee the Engineer who gives an absolutely phenomenal review on each product he does. I see his reviews mainly for batteries and battery chargers, so if you decide to go with a lacrosse then more than likely you will come across his review.

I used those La Crosse chargers before.



Benefit of being less than 2 miles away and knowing someone who works there!
