Eneloops are incredible. Especially in hotshot flashes; their recharge rates are incredible.

Eneloops are not just incredible, they are freaking awesome. Been using them and a MAHA CH-9000 charger for couple years now.

Maybe I don't get out enough, but I'd never heard of them before joining here and found that regular rechargables didn't last as long as disposables, so why bother?

But I'm educated now!

I have to agree with you. Before having an account here, I had never heard of them.

That might be true of certain types of electronic devices, depending on their voltage load or power drain or whatever, but it isn't true of Pentax DSLR's, unless you never actually use them. Even "regular" rechargeables (ie, NiMH cells) will typically provide more shots (per charge) than "regular" disposables (ie, alkaline cells), by at least a factor of two usually. But that assumes you shoot enough that self-discharge doesn't get in the way. You can get 500 shots or so out of regular NiMH cells, but only if you do it within a couple of weeks. If it takes 6 months to take many shots, you won't your 500.

BTW, one reason many hadn't heard of Eneloops until recently is that they've only been on the market a few years.
