Has anyone had any problems with these batteries? I ordered 3 packs from DailySteals, and they won't charge at all. I used this charger, which is supposed to be able to charge both AA and AAA:

The AAs that came with the charger charged just fine, but the AAAs will show up as charging and after a time will show as fully charged on the display, but put into a device, it won't even turn on. So I don't know if the batteries are duds, or if the charger just doesn't charge AAs like it's supposed to. Guess I have to buy some different AAs or somehow try the batteries out in another charger (not that I have one).

@kc6201: have you used Ni-MH rechargables in that device before? Ni-MHs put out 1.2 volts as opposed to the 1.5 of regular batteries and some devices wont even power up with the lower voltage.

@prosperouscheat: Thanks for replying! No, I've only used regular old alkaline batteries. I wasn't even aware that the type of battery would matter. I thought if alkaline worked, that rechargeables would work too. Maybe the batteries are fine then. I just can't use them for what I need to use them for!
