Default Battery question

I have some rechargable Lenmar NiMH batteries (2000 mAh, AA) that do not
seem to hold their charge. Even with no use whatsoever, they seem to be
dead a day or two after a full recharge. I get only a few minutes of use
from them when I put them in my camera (Nikon Coolpix 2100) after a full
recharge. I think I recall reading that batteries hold their charge better
after they've been recharged a number of times, but these batteries have
been recharged at least 10 or 15 times.

My questions: Is this the sort of thing that varies from brand to brand in
NiMH batteries? If so, which brands are best for retaining their charges
and not draining too quickly?
