Economical solution for high-drain devices

Rayovac Platinum nickel metal hydride (NiMH) rechargeable batteries are the most economical battery solution for high-drain devices like digital cameras, portable video games, kids toys and wireless gaming accessories.

The Latest Rechargeable Technology

Low Self Discharge: These NiMH batteries have improved charge retention. With Low Self Discharge, the batteries are able to retain 70% to 80% of their full charge at 6 months and 50% to 60% at 12 months. Low Self Discharge batteries are ready when you are! If you have fully charged the batteries but left them in a device, such as a digital camera, or are storing them in a drawer, they will still have 70% to 80% of their full charge after 6 months! Non Low Self Discharge batteries, also called "Standard" NiMH batteries, can only hold 20% of their full charge capacity after 12 months.

Pre-Charged: Rayovac Platinum Rechargeable batteries come pre-charged and ready to use right out of the package. No need to charge them first!

Cycle Life: Rayovac Platinum Rechargeable batteries can be re-charged and re-used over 300 times. This helps both your pocket book and the environment, saving you $100's vs. disposable alkaline or lithium batteries while reducing waste!

High Performance: Rayovac Platinum Rechargeable Batteries give you superior performance in high-drain devices with high mAh capacity ratings and impressive results in digital cameras:

Rechargeable Batteries are Ideal in High-Drain Devices
  • Digital Cameras
  • Radios, CD Players and MP3 Docking Stations
  • Kid's Toys and Educational Electronics
  • Video Cameras
  • Portable Video Games
  • Video Game Controllers and Accessories

No "Memory Effect": Unlike Nickel Cadmium (NiCad) rechargeable batteries, Rayovac Platinum NiMH rechargeable batteries do not gradually lose their maximum energy capacity if they are repeatedly recharged after being only partially discharged. Rayovac Platinum NiMH rechargeable batteries can be recharged at any state of discharge without harming the performance of the battery.

Reduce waste

Rayovac NiMH Rechargeable batteries make an environmentally smart choice.

Reduce Waste

They can be charged and reused up to 500 times, producing far less waste than disposable alkaline or lithium.

No Toxic Chemicals

They do not contain the toxic chemicals that are found in older Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) Rechargeables.

Recyclable

Rayovac has partnered with Call2Recycle, giving consumers the ability to recycle NiMH batteries for FREE. There are 30,000 drop-off sites available at municipalities and retailers. Drop-off site locations can be found by calling 1-800-8-BATTERY or visiting http://www.call2recycle.org.

 Economical solution for high-drain devices

Rayovac Platinum NiMH Rechargeable Batteries are available in AA, AAA, C, D and 9V sizes.

Two chargers are also available, a 5 hour charger for AA and AAA and an overnight charger for AA,AAA, C, D and 9V battery sizes.

Rayovac Platinum offers a 100% paper package (made with 80% recycled content) on its rechargeable batteries.

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT another new wrapper for the same old Rayovac Hybrid (but I wish it were) June 8 2010
By NLee the Engineer - Published on Amazon.com
When I first saw the product description of Rayovac Platinum LSD NiMH AA, my immediate reaction was: "Oh no! Not ANOTHER new wrapper for the same old Rayovac Hybrid!". After all, that's exactly what Rayovac did last year for the so-called Rayovac 4.0 cells. But after examining this package more carefully, it turns out to be not the case.

First encouraging sign: unlike the case with 'Rayovac 4.0' cells, those 'Platinum' LSD cells actually have their capacity number printed on each cell (2100mAh for AA, 800mAh for AAA).

I measured those Rayovac Platinum AA cells upon arrival using my La Crosse BC-900, and they contain about 87% of their rated capacity. After two discharge/recharge cycles, their average capacity reached 2095mAh. This performance is very consistent with that of the old Rayovac Hybrid AA cells. However, by comparing the shapes of their (+) and (-) terminals, I can tell that the 'Platinum' cells are indeed different from 'Rayovac Hybrid' and 'Rayovac 4.0' cells. (Check out my Customer Image and judge for yourself)

Rayovac claims that the Platinum's charge retention rate is same as previous generation Rayovac LSD cells: 80% after 6 months, 60% after 12 months. In contrast, Sanyo claims the eneloop can retain 85% charge after 12 months. My own testing has shown that this claim is accurate.

One disturbing sign is that: Rayovac states that the lifespan of new Platinum cell is only '275 cycles', while previously it was '500 cycles' for the old Rayovac Hybrid.

In summary, the new Rayovac 'Platinum' LSD cell is not any better than the old 'Hybrid', yet it may suffer from shorter lifespan. As of this moment, it is being sold at a much higher price than Rayovac Hybrid and Sanyo eneloop, so it is just not a good value.

[Update on Oct 16, 2010]
Long-term self-discharge test: after 3 months sitting on the shelf, a pair of Rayovac Platinum AA cells retained 83% of original capacity. This is slightly worse than the rate for old Rayovac Hybrid, whcih typically can retain 85% after 5 months.

[Update on April 26, 2012]
I re-tested some Rayovac Hybrid and 4.0 cells recently, and was shocked to find out that their capacities have all deteriorated badly. In particular, four Rayovac 4.0 AA cell (circa 2009) have dropped from 2100mAh to below 800mAh. Even after more than one dozen Discharge/Refresh cycles on my BC-900, their capacities only recovered to 1100-1500mAh. Therefore I can no longer recommend Rayovac rechargeable batteries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Performance in my Canon SX20 IS A+ June 6 2010
By Stuntman Mike - Published on Amazon.com
These are great batteries for your digital camera!

I picked up a Canon PowerShot SX20 IS 12.1MP Digital Camera with 20x Wide Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.5-inch Articulating LCD at a big box store close to my house recently.

Got it home and I played with the 560mm zoom, and took a ton of pictures and videos. Did a ton of messing around with the settings, and testing different apertures, etc. I had been wanting to play with this camera for a while, so no telling how many times I focused in on subjects while just looking around.

All of this with the same set of these 4 AA batteries with the charge they held out of the package. They are most definitely pre-charged.

After a day, I figured the batteries were probably toast, and threw them in my Energizer 8 Hour Smart charger (also new product at big box store).

They showed 3 hours remaining initially, then were fully charged within 1 hour or so.

The pictures above are accurate.

These are 2100mAh LSD batteries. Perfect (or really good) for Digital Cameras like the SX20 IS.

Good batteries and a good price... Maybe you might want to buy the charger for these batteries as they take to long to charge on mine... so maybe I need a better charger... They are pretty descent for the price

5.0 out of 5 stars Platinum Batteries April 19 2011
By Fishrman - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great product. These batteries have long-life and a quick recharge. Make sure to look for the charger that fits a USB port. This is a nice compliment to this product.
