    I'm not sure if someone made this in this year, but I am gonna ask enyway...

    I was and still is looking for good quality batteries for small epquiments like lamps etc. and also for solar power too but too many choices :D So which ones to choose and why?

    I get the energizer rechargeable batteries.
    When those don't work well in a certain application I use primary cell lithium batteries.

    Eneloop batteries are what we use in our house and they have been a great investment. I have bought/wasted money on being frugal with solar recharging stuff. After many fails, buy quality. Best set up I have seen is @Yard Dart's in this post.
    Portable Communications Kit Goal Zero seems to be quality that lasts.

    I am looking into getting a kit set up like the one @Yard Dart posted as well. The AA rechargeables batteries that I am considering are the Panasonic BK-3MCCA12FA eneloop AA.

    Was eyeing out the Nomad 7 to throw in a pack. I have no experience with Goal Zero. Anyone have one?

    Do you use C or D sized batteries? And which mAh size? :)
