enter value/s in increments of 1 between 8 and 39
Measured capacity (mAh)
enter value/s in increments of i between 1386 and 2715
This score is based on how long the battery can be expected to last, its capacity, and the cost price of a single battery.
enter value/s in increments of i between 19 and 99
How well a battery retains its initial capacity. For example, a 2500mAh battery should still have close to that capacity after 200 recharges. A low score means the battery loses a lot of capacity over multiple recharges.
enter value/s in increments of i between 55 and 100
Self discharge score
Rechargeable batteries tend to lose some charge when left unused, but a good battery will lose only a little. The higher the score, the lower the self-discharge.

A Similar model is identical in most aspects except for a few. This means that a majority of its test results are identical so you can reasonably expect to get the same results from the model we tested, but for those aspects which aren't identical, we'll note these as "Not Tested" in the Compare tables.
A Tested model refers to a model that is still current and available in the Australian market. You should be able to order this model through your local retailer, or find it online.
These models can't be found in retailers or online or are no longer manufactured. You may still find these models on second hand websites, or in second hand dealers. Test methods may change over time, so criteria which can't be directly compared will contain an N/A.
An Identical model is exactly that. Performance characteristics will be identical and the only difference will be something trivial such as colour, which won't have an impact on performance.
These are models we haven't yet tested but that are available.
