These batteries have only 2500 miliamp hours of capacity. Most NiMh rechargeable D batteries have about four times this capacity. Even most nickel-cadmium D batteries have higher capacity than 2500 mah. This battery is simply a sub-c or AA battery enclosed in a plastic shell the size of a D battery. In other words, this battery packs as much power as a AA battery. Stay away from Energizer D batteries. Get another brand such as Powerizer, which has four times the capacity.
We had 8 of these batteries for our daughter's baby swing - it needed 4 at a time, so we would charge the extra set while she used the first set. Regardless of how often we changed them (depending on how much she used the swing, it varied from 3-7 days) we always had a charged set ready. Since she used the swing daily for nearly a year, we would have spent a fortune on regular batteries even if they lasted a day or two longer than these!
I bought these batteries for my daughters baby swing. The batteries last for maybe 6hours on a full charge. I was hoping they would last like normal batteries (15+ hours), but they don't. These rechargeable drain so fast that I had to buy a whole new set just to swap them out while they charge. I wouldn't recommend these batteries.
I have used rechargeable batteries for many years...the NiMH's usually perform quite well. This particular brand and battery size has been very disappointing. Originally used in a light duty hot wire foam cutter it works well. But for anything beyond that light usage, my experience has been that it does not maintain a charge for very long under any other kind of load. Tried to use in a battery operated ornament spinner but it will only last about 1 hour before it needs recharging.
Can't vote thumbs up on this one.
When you pick up this 2 pack you notice how light it is. That's because its really just an AA battery in a D size shell. Read labels before you buy. I wish I did. These only have 2500mh, same as many AA recharge batteries. The "green " theme is just to be PC. They have little interest in selling recharge batteries since it will cut their regular battery sales IMO. Other brands offer 10000mh D size that will last much longer between charges for only a little more cost.
WORKS GOOD IN MY FLASH LIGHT VERY GOOD.
The batteries are economical, environmentally friendly, and on the surface a promising investment; however, they just don't hold up. A standard D cell from this brand will last a week in my daughters swing, its rechargeable counterpart only last for a day and a half at most. IMO that isn't so great.
discharged and REcharged three times; works perfect!
So far, I've only recharged them once (but it took all night long) I bought a total of 12 batteries for my Mutant wireless indoor/outdoor speakers. The charge is still going after about an hour. I'm going to wait until the batteries die before I charge them again. I bought 2 chargers, because you can only charge 4 batteries at a time and I have 12 batteries.
These only offer 1.36 volts!! D size normal battries offer 1.56 volts. These a worn out AFTER they have been charged. I doubt very much if they will work as intented, because once regualr D's get to that level, my unit qui=ts working, and or slows down.

For me, Energizer is the best battery.
I use these batteries for many rechargable hours in flashlights and walky-talky products without failures. I recommend these batteries to anyone who has longterm use for rechargable battery use.
Product works great. We were going through batteries at a crazy rate in the baby's swing and now we can just recharge these batteries and keep the swing going.
I was happy to finally find rechargeable D batteries for my mag flashlight. They are so much lighter.
I never purchase non-rechargeable batteries anymore! This is a great price for rechargeable batteries.
Charge, use... simple as that...
Works well. Honestly if you use DD batteries alot (with young kids) then you HAVE to buy a couple of packs of these. Trust me. It'll save you time and money.
Just what I need not to have to keep buying batteries.
But over time y'all find out ya save money on batteries purchases I used rechargeable before in the past. I had them for over 5 yrs before needing to replace them.
