->> I have 2 Turbo Compacts that NicadLady rebuilt still under warranty that have gone POOT. With the eneloop low drain batteries.

Any body know anybody @ NicadLady? Backdoor? Ex-Emp?
Anybody else had short life out of Eneloops? low drain

Is there anybody else that rebuilds? Turbo C (Compact)
Has 5-AA on one side and 3 AA on the other side.

Plenty of people rebuild Turbo's not too many are doing the Turbo C.


Hate loosing 2 battery packs while still UNDER WARRANTY.
But I shoot allot of portable flash a year. (Quantum Trio)
Might just be worn out. Frames are 50-60 thousand a year.
Charge 2x a week and rotated batteries monthly. Month on month off.
Fill flash only. Usually getting 1500-1600 pic per charge.

Bought a Trio to keep from sending a Nikon SB-800 each year for repair.Now I have LOL Battery trouble
