Default C & D NiMH Best Deal

Okay, I'll admit- I *thought* I'd found a good deal on NiMH AA batteries
(posted on the previous thread), but you folks came through with some really
great deals.

I'm shopping for some NiMH size C and D batteries (already got a nice
charger).

Thus far I've seen a pack of 8 C and 8 D for $4.84 each delivered he
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=5718758 282

Any other suggested sources?

Thanks, Larry

If those are NiCd's, keep in mind they have a fraction of the capacity of
NiMH's. Not such a good deal when you think of it that way.

Larry, be cautious when looking for a "bargain" D cell. Some outfits
package a C cell in a D-sized case. You can tell a "real" D cell rom
a "fake" one by comparing the Amp-hour rating. Prices I have seen on
the "real" D cells are around $8 to $10 each.

I have also (but not recently) seen three AA cells packaged inside a D
shell...pure junk. You can tell some of this stuff just by the weight of the
battery.
