I used them quite a bit to give me a recycling edge when shooting kids (I even blogged about it here: http://friedmanarchives.blogspot.com/2010/11/another-grandchild-another-set-of.html )

Since then I've stopped using them for two reasons:

1) There were some reports from Nikon users that even mild use (i.e, non-rapid-fire) caused some flashes to be sent in for repair.

2) Not only do the batteries not hold a charge for long, after about six months on a shelf they fail to hold a charge altogether!  I invested in 2 dozen of these batteries, and now I can't use any of them.

Other than that, they did work as advertised.
