I've tried being stingy on NiMH cells. I bought the Elite cells offered by cheapbatterypacks.com. A bunch of the cells died. Then again, a bunch of my EAM IB4200WCE cells have died, too.
At this point, if I was trying to save money, I would get the new EP4300 cells.
When someone is intent on excelling in an otherwise laudable manner, does he not desire to inflict pain on others by means of his exalted status and enjoy the envy he arouses? Is there not an anticipated delight in an artist's ability to defeat his artistic rivals, which heightens his euphoria in creation?
