I purchased batteries made by POWEREX. 2700 mah. They have lasted about 3 years. I am noticing a few are going bad so I "reconditioned" them in my charger that has this reconditioning feature. They are not coming back. I've been working under the premise they should be good for around a thousand charging cycles which, if recharged once a day, would work out to about 3 years. But my estimation puts the amount of recharges at around 500, as I don't recharge the same batteries on a daily basis. And running all of the batteries through the reconditioning process seems to ruin those batteries that still had life in them. It's time to get new batteries. Any recommendations? Is my understanding that I haven't gotten the expected life out of the POWEREX batteries correct?
