Sanyo Eneloop work very well. Great recycling times and they don't self-discharge.

I use energizer and see little self discharge but my cells are old and may represent a design that isn't current.

Costco carries the Eneloop rechargeable batteries and to date, they've outperformed other brands that I've tried in the past.

FYI, Eneloop is offering rebates right now on their popular LSD batteries at Adorama: Panasonic Eneloop "AA" 2000 mAh Rechargeable Ni-MH Battery (8 Pack) BK-3MCCA8BA

That's probably as good a deal as you'll ever find on those expensive batteries!

I've been using Northtech rechargeables from Menards for about 18 months in my yn-560iii flashes. They work well for me and run about $6 for a four pack.

Actually Eneloops are very good batteries and they maintain their charge very well when in storage (all LSD batteries will, in time, loose part of their charge while under storage), they used to be made by Sanyo but are now being made by Panasonic. The most important thing with LSD rechargeables or any rechargeable battery is the charge rate you use when charging them , just use a moderate charge rate and they will work great and last a long time. If you also intend to invest heavily in rechargeable batteries I advise you to get a good charger since this will also help to keep your rechargeables in good shape as well as extend their life.
