Energizer SUCKS

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Energizer Rechargeable Batteries really sucks nowadays. Energizer Rechargeable Batteries WAS used to be good. 3 years ago, I bought 4 AA Energizer NiMH Rechargeable Batteries (1800mAh). They worked fine on my digital camera, so last year I bought another 4 new AA Energizer NiMH Rechargeable Batteries, with higher capacity, 2500mAh. Later I found that my 2-year-old 1800mAh batteries could last much more longer than my brand new 2500mAh batteries. After using the new 2500 mAh batteries for less than 6 months, they all not functioning. My 2-year-old 1800 mAh batteries also died shortly.

At first I still thought Energizer was good and I was just unlucky to get the defective ones, so I bought another 4 new AA 2500mAh Energizer NiMH Rechargeable Batteries again from Huat Ming Karamunsing. I left them in my drawer for 1 week. After a full recharge, I only could take a few shots then the batteries died. I asked Huat Ming to give me a replacement, but they refused coz it was purchased more than 3 days. OK… you all learn it now. Check your battery (and other electronic appliances) condition immediately soon after purchase. Below is the picture of all the died Energizer Batteries. I am going to dump these junk that costed me RM180, ah… so painful…

Energizer Sucks

I also heard from others that the quality of Energizer Rechargeable Battery is dropping badly. But what truly irritated me was to find that all 8 “fully-charged” Energizer batteries were not working at the critical photo shooting moment. That losses can’t be measured with $$$. You want to take the risk? Think twice.

Now I am using Sony brand Rechargeable Batteries. It costs the same, but with better stamina (faster flash recharge and last longer). Probably it works best with my Sony Cybershot camera.

  1. Probably a good idea to do now is this: since Huat Ming does not want to have anything to do with the problematic batteries, write to energizer corp detailing your problems, with a mildly threatening tone to tell the media about it (in a way, you already did via this blog).

    If they are anywhere near customer-savvy, i think they’d promptly offer a replacement, or give back your money, or offer something else.

    good luck………

  2. it apparently works with some other company, i read it somewhere. Example: Jeff Ooi was given a box of chocolates by Maxis due to some problems caused by them…

  3. actually smokehead, i am quite surprised that 4 2500 energizers cost u so CHEAP.. rm 59!!, mine set me back almost 80 bucks for 4 of em, and they work fine for me.. last a long time also.
    i STRONGLY suspect they are fakes, i wont even buy SONY ones now, loads of fakes floating on lelong and ebay now

  4. Aha… I think a… your battery charger already kong lah…
    So.. I think… better lu tukar itu charger…
    Don’t blame The battery or HUAT MING….

  5. Yeah.. I suspect its ur charger.. I’m using ENERGIZER RECHARGEABLE battery now, and it works fine.. I put in my drawer for more than 2 weeks after fully re-charge, and it is still in tip-top condition when I use it..
