It might be worth giving these a try.

You can purchase from RS Components - - hopefully the link will work.

It looks as if the link is not fully reproducing in this post.
The forum shortens the visual representation of long urls, but they should still work normally.

I've bought a set of eneloop rechargeable AAs and have received some Panasonic OxyRide AAs and will give these a try shortly.
