|OT: AA Lithium Battery Tests|
Message #1 Posted by Bill (Smithville, NJ) on 29 Nov 2011, 11:28 a.m.
Would like to ask an off topic question about AA Lithium batteries.
This morning, I caught a story on the news that Consumer Reports had tested AA batteries, including the Everyready "Advanced" and "Ultimate" AA batteries. They stated that the testing showed the Advanced did 809 photos and the Ultimate only did 470 photos.
This is exactly reveresed from what I would expect. Everyready claims the Ultimate is about twice as powerful as the Advanced.
Did the News Reporter get the two batterys backwrds, or do the Advanced really out perform the Ultimate.
Unfortnuately, I do not have a subcription to CR, so I can't read the original article.
I'd appreciate if anyone here who subscribes could verify the results.
(The reason I bring this up here is I know some of us use these batteries in the HP-200LX)
