GODOX Propac PB820
« on: August 21, 2012, 12:26:52 PM »
Anyone used these? I'm so tired of charging AA's with my 3 CP-E3 battery-packs it's not even funny, and EVERY time I want to use them the batteries have drained. I used 2700 mAh Sanyo AA's and after a week I had to charge again (they haven't been used)

So now I want something I can plug directly to the batterypack and charge them all at the same time.

I read good reviews, and the price is great and I've looked inside one and it looks pretty good!

My QUESTION IS:

How does it hold up after a year or three's use? Do they keep their power level, do they fall apart? I'm not a person who throws them to the ground two times a day, but they will be put to use.

I use Sanyo eneloop.  They will last 3 years and still keep most of their charge.  If you have Sanyo NiMH, they will retain a good charge for about 6 months.
If your batteries discharge in a week, something is drastically wrong.  If they are left in a piece of equipment, its probably defective.
Ordinary rechargables all ended up in my junk bin over two years ago.

I used to sell the Eneloop's at my old store, but they looked and were cheaper than the 2700's from Sanyo. Anyway, they are history as I bought myself two packs of the Godox. No more charging 6 rounds of AA's :D
