I have had very good experience with Eneloop (from Panasonic) brand AA
NiMH cells. When I was taking my radio scanner to work I was
regularly cycling some through that but now that I work from home
(since March) I basically go to work in my radio room, so ... not so
much battery stuff.
Regardless, no leakage. I charge them in a MAHA 4-cell charger so no
over-charging. The cells are of a design that has very low
self-discharge so when you get them, they are usable and if you let
the sit for months (as I have been doing lately!), they retain a more
than usable charge.
