Default NiMh Batteries

Hello guys. I am from Nitro, but have question about batteries.
I bought Energizer NiMh 850 mAn batteries for reciever and it seems like they don't keep capacity. I have already use them 3 times ( total charg been done 3 times), but doesn't seems they have 850 mAh. What can it couse, can it be I overheated them during the soldering together, or I do have just keep charging for few more times before they will start working in full?
Any help appritiated

Do you discharge them after use? Well it's not a must though, but I always do it to keep my cells in good form. Maybe you still left some capacity on it so you wont get 850 mAh reading on your charger if you charge them...
