I've been using rechargeable AA, C and D batteries since the mid 90s. Most of them I bought back then are still in service. My secret is to have enough of them to rotate them, rather than use them up and recharge them daily. I'm replacing them with NiMH as I can, but I have to admit that I'm surprised by how long the NiCads have lasted. My uses for them has mostly been weapon sights (Kobra reflex sights), flashlights, and GPRS radios. I have a bunch of small solar chargers.

Every one of the NiCad 9v batteries I bought back then are still working also. I use them in those pull pin alarms hidden around my perimeter so they don't get used often though.
