GP sucks.
Performance drop after 5-6 mths.
After 12 mths, mostly 'kaput'.

Those batts which claim to hold charge (Eneloop, Recyko, Imedion etc) for long period ain't suitable for flash usage.

The flash refresh slower using such batts compared to conventional Ni-MH. Not to mention the capacity is lower.

Try with 2 different set of batts (1 set Eneloop, 1 set conventional Ni-MH). Flash with full power. Observe the refresh time difference.

Anyhow, different flash/speedlight might have different characteristics.

My finding was based on 3 years of using the Nikon SB600/800/900.
