Hi Paul I read your post in the Trail Cam thread also, very interesting. I looked again at the packaging for the Energizer Power Plus (2000 mAh) I am now using and realised they are NiMH not alkaline as I first thought. I don’t know if they are Low Self Discharge but they last me about a week capturing around 15 minutes of 1080p video a night, how long do the Amazon Basics ones last you?

Also would like to know if the general advice is to discharge them fully before recharging to prolong the lifetime of the battery
