Interesting... basically the same thing happened to me. Charger (same as yours) kicked back a "HIGH" error.For me, the Powerex, although a higher capacity rating, were the worst. They tended to last a short time before I had to throw them out (couldn't charge them).
You made a good choose I have the MaHa Powerex 2700 and am very impressed with their performance.Thanks for all the feedback! I ordered a 16 pack of MaHa Powerex 2700's and a MaHa MH-C801D charger from Thomas Distributing last week. Everything should be here on Tuesday and I am anxious to try these out.
Another vote for the Maha C9000 charger. I get around 8 to 8.5 hours of use per charge using Sanyo 2700 Mah Nickel Metal Hydride cells. This is with the '800 backlight on level 3 for 100% of the time, scanning busy trunked systems.I too would recommend the Maha C9000 charger with the Sanyo Eneloop batteries. It is a very good combination.
I've had the same experience with Powerex 2700s. Some were very good, some were duds. Keep in mind the Powerex 2700s have a one-year warranty. Thomas Distributing replaced the duds and the new ones have been better.Hi,
I think, by far, the Sanyo Eneloops work best. I have used others, such as Powerex 2700 and even Energizers 2450. For me, the Powerex, although a higher capacity rating, were the worst. They tended to last a short time before I had to throw them out (couldn't charge them).
