Tests and reviews of different batteries to help you find the Right One…
The 1.2V AAA 1000 mAh Varta Power Accu NiMH batteries are of the highest capacity rechargeable AAA size NiMHs that Varta offers, though these are the last of the non-LSD models as the company has apparently decided to replace this model with a low self discharge version. So far we’ve seen very good results in terms of performance from Varta batteries (especially when used in low power applications), so here we also have high expectations.
Starting the test of the 1.2V AAA 1000 mAh Varta Power Accu NiMH batteries with a low constant current discharge rate of 0.1A and got us 1086 mAh as useable capacity and that is a great result making these batteries great for use in low power applications. In fact the 1086 mAh capacity is the highest capacity from a rechargeable AAA size battery that we’ve measured so far. By further increasing the levels of load we still get good levels of capacity, though the results here are not as good as the one with 0.1A and they are more moderate, but still showing that these Varta batteries can handle pretty good high power use as well.
The performance of the 1.2V AAA 1000 mAh Varta Power Accu NiMH batteries in our tests:
– 1086 mAh at 0.1A load
– 818 mAh at 0.2A load
– 757 mAh at 0.5A load
– 742 mAh at 1.0A load
– 1.345 Wh at 0.1A load
– 1.013 Wh at 0.2A load
– 0.890 Wh at 0.5A load
– 0.799 Wh at 1.0A load
