Now that we are using the Wii more again, it has highlighted the chronic battery shortage in our house, specifically of AA batteries for Wiimotes, keyboards, mice, guitars etc. A year or so ago, I purchased 24 low discharge rechargeable generics and they have worked pretty well. In case you don’t pay attention to battery technology, a new rechargeable is on the scene. These new batteries retain their power like alkalines and don’t have a memory effect.
The cream of the crop are Sanyo Enelopes but they are pricey ($24 for 8, $3 each.) I have found a good deal on equivalent and well reviewed batteries but the shipping is killer for just a couple packs, but doesn’t increase much when you add more as 5+ packages adds like $.50. To that end, I would like to propose a group purchase. Let me know by Monday if you would like to purchase some AA batteries and I’ll aggregate a big order so we all get a good deal.
Let me know 🙂
