    I have found on here that rechargeable nimh batteries will recycle faster than alkaline batteries but is there one brand that reigns supreme?

    For holding a charge when not in use along with good power during use, Eneloop.
    For power/longevity/recycle during use, Powerex.

    i need fast recycle times, power length is good but not as important since i can have more than one set

    I went with Powerex, the only thing I don't care for is that if I charge them - some drain in about a week.

    That said, if you just charge them a day ahead of time they're great. I have a total of 8 and they're workhorses.

    I'd like to get some Eneloops too just to have handy in the camera bag.

    If I'm not using my power packs I use Eneloops.

    Eneloop made by Sanyo retains charge much longer. They are available from Costco cheap!

    But, the Eneloops don't recycle quite as fast because they're only 2000 mAh. I prefer 2700 mAh NiMH's. I get all my NiNH batteries and MAHA 8 cell chargers from www.thomasdistributing.com

    I have Energizer NiMH in my SB600. Recycle time is awesome. I wanted eneloops but didnt feel like ordering online.

    I use Powerex Imedion's they're hybrid similar to the Eneloops.
