I am thinking of buying these Batteries for my SB80 flashes and just wanted to know if they will work fine with them.
Thanks in advance.

Oh, If anyone knows the best rechargeable batteries to buy, then that will be great.
Eneloop by Sanyo are very good for rechargables. They hold upto 85% of the charge when left for long periods i think it is and are reliable as normal batteries in the field
I would steer clear of the ones on ebay....They are alkaline opposed to Nimh and they are only rated at 1250mah to a maximum of 100 charges.
You really should be looking to buy Nimh batteries rated at 2450 - 2700 mah for speedlites....The Eneloop quoted above are very good, I use energiser 2450 mah myself and they last for ages.
Many thanks David & Paul.

Totally agree, The " Hybrids " known as Eneloop are fantastic.......
There are other brands doing them now, I have several sets of " Ansmann +MAX E, 2500mAh AA " Its the same technology as the Sanyo Eneloop, But they have a higher amp hour rating.
Running them in an SB-800 as well as a MB-D10 battery grip, So far they have been great just like the Sanyo ones I use, But just a bit longer shooting life, Same magic " Charged " shelf life too......
Check out this company, Good stock, Fab service, Great after sales, Its my one stop battery shop.......
Me and several very long barge poles would go no where near the cheap stuff from " FleaBay ".
7dayshop also do their own branded Hybrids and well as Sanyo Eneloops
