[SOLD] $5 off Coupons for Rayovac Hybrid (like Sanyo Eneloop)

Hi,

I have a bunch of $5 off coupons that can used with the purchase of any Rayovac Hybrid batteries pack or charger & battery combo pack. A 4 pack of 2100mAh AA Hybrids cost $8.50 at my local Walmart - so the after coupon price is about $4 after taxes - less than $1 per battery.

These batteries are like Sanyo Eneloops, ready to use out of the pack and with low-discharge to hold charge for a long-time. The manufacturer claims 90% retention after 3 months and 80% after 6 months. See the Rayovac Hybrid Website for more details. The batteries are available at Walmart, Meijers & Target for sure. And Rayovac has announced that they are going to spread the distribution and should be available at most electronics stores by now.

Min order - $1 for THREE coupons shipped via USPS First Class Mail. Add 20 cents for each additional coupon. I have 20 of them available - all with an expiry date of 03/31/07. Send me a PM if interested.

Thanks for looking,
Teja

UPDATE - Feb 8th
9 sold - 11 still available.

Teja, sorry to go off topic but this doesn't deserve opening a new topic. I remember your K100D battery thread. Did you buy these 2100mAh Rayovac and your problem went away? 2100mAh seem kind of low. I was using Energizer 2100mAh (not new though) and they didn't last long at all. Called Pentax and they were surprised my camera would even turn on with 2100mAh... they said 2300 is the minimum and 2500 is preferred... (BS?)

So far the Rayovac Hybrid's seem to work fine with my K100D - but I've been busy at work and haven't used the camera much. The Hybrids showed full out of the pack (no need to charge) and still show full after three days. AFAIK, the prob with NiMHs in the K100D is not with their power, but with the voltage. Several people reported excellent results with the Sanyo Eneloops and those are only 2000mAh. WHile Sanyo & Tenergy 2300 mAh drop to half in one day and empty by the end of the second day.

I am planning some shooting this weekend and expect to run down the batteries. Once I have gone through at least one recharge cycle, I will post a more detailed update about the Rayovacs in that thread - maybe Sunday or Monday.

Cheers

Grass is always greener.......

I still remember paying more than $4 per Sanyo 2100 mAh on eBay to have them shipped from Singapore because they weren't available in the US then.

All things considered $1 for one low-discharge NiMH is a sweet deal. Maybe you can find a few friends and buy in bulk to save on shipping... I'd have done it for you if I weren't so busy preparing for my trip.

Cheers

Yeah, I sent him a PM a few days ago. Got no reply so I just went ahead and bought the batteries at retail price...
