Wait! Before you dis the deal these are a different sort of rechargable battery, they come fully charged and dont loose charge when stored in the same way as other rechargables so are a big step up from ordinary rechargables!

# Can be used straight after purchase
# Has a high performance
# Long shelf life with no loss of energy

Recharge with your normal charger too.

Edit: Price now dropped to £9.99 for 8 so add something else to get free delivery, or why not buy 16 ;-)

Yes they will be fine if your camera takes AA batteries.

If like me you keep a spare set or 3! of ordinary rechargables charged up for use with the camera, you wont be dissapointed when fitting these new batteries.
Eneloop batteries do not suffer from the high rate of self discharge standard NiMH batteries, if an eneloop battery is fully charged an then put in storage, after 6 months the battery will still have approximately 90% capacity, after 12 months - approximately 85% of its original capacity. Compare this with standard NiMH batteries that would have approximately 75% after 6 months storage and around 0% after 12 months, the benefits can easily be seen.

Most rechargable batteries that I have bought before have come charged anyway and most people that use rechargable batteries use them pretty soon after charging. ie. I use them in my camera and I go through a set in about a week usually so they don't discharge themselves in that time. How long do standard rechargables need to sit around for in order to become discharged?

Who keeps rechargable batteries sitting around for 12 months before they use them, and if they did they could just charge them up again. The cost of electricity in recharging the batteries once a year due to discharging will be far far less than buying expensive batteries that don't discharge.

I say just charge them up once a year if you really have to sit on them for a year before you use them. It'll cost like a couple of pence in electricity compared to an extra tenner in batteries.

Voting cold.

Hmm..I think the main point is being missed slightly here. Most of us want a set of batteries NOW once ours have discharged in the camera for instance, we dont want to wait 4 or more hours for them to recharge (most fast (1hr) chargers kill rechargeables quickly) and I find that normal rechargables left after charging for even a week or two tend not to have a full charge. These new ones should eliminate the situation where you grab a spare set of pre charged batteries and fit them only to find within a short time they too are discharged due to leakage.

The only people that are going to find these useful are those who leave rechargables around for a year without using them and expect them to be fully charged still. If you use rechargables then there's a good chance that you're going to have used your main set within six months and put them on charge whilst you use your second set. You then have another six months to use your second set in which time you put your first set on charge again.

So as long as you use a set of batteries within six months then normal rechargables are for you. Even if you don't use them within six months just charge them up again and it'll cost you a few pence rather than a tenner.

The sort of people that forget to re-charge their batteries are the sort of people that are going to forget to re-charge these after using them. So it makes no difference, you'll be picking up a set of uncharged batteries anyway!

If you can come up with self recharging batteries then that's something that'll fix this problem!

I've got 8 and they're great. (rhyme not intended):oops:


They also sell 8 for £9.25 delivered, these are 2700mAh!! will far outlast a 2000mAh
#8
LOL. Do people still say "dis"?

I have the uniross version of these called Hybrio, they were £4.99 for 4 from Wilkinson's. Have have been using NHMi rechargeable for many years and have every brand you can think of. These hybrio's are so much much better I now wont use the other's. They seem to last much longer in use than their m.a. rating would suggest.

Why do people not get this? For example in a digital camera these may not have quite as many shots in them as say 2700mah rechargeables (although the difference will not be huge).

However, if you leave the 2700mah in the camera for say a few weeks or so they will continue to lose charge (so when you pick the camera up you might only get a few shots - not much use huh?). The eneloops will still have almost the exact amount of charge they did before and you will be able to snap away happily! For people who dont take photos very often these are fantastic. And even for those who take lots these are the ideal backup set to take with you as they dont have to be constantly topped up. Voted hot.

According to MikeT after 6 months you'll have 15% less in normal rechargable batteries than these. So in a few weeks maybe 5% at absolute most, fair enough? So you'll get 95 photos instead of 100, anyone out there think they'll notice that difference?
#12
Depends on the make of battery. Also the generic no names tend to lose their performance quite rapidly. Ie they may well lose that initially in their lifespan, but after only a relatively few charge cycles they start to fall off. Personally i think the best use of these is as a backup to your normal batteries if you're out and about with your camera, that way guaranteeing you always have a set available.

Surely the market place for these is on the shop shelf (where you want to walk in and buy rechargeables and use instantly to solve a low battery crisis) rather than waiting for an online order to be delivered?

Until the rating gets close to the 2700mah+ ratings of other rechargeables batteries, then total capacity will always be the primary factor for me.
having to be organised to charge a set of batteries before I need them outweights the pain of having to carry additional sets of batteries, just incase they run out (when using bike lights, digi cameras or walkie talkies etc).

BTW, I've a Sony charger which also offer a discharge facility that reduces/resets the memory effect (despite NIMH not supposed to have much of one). Have used this an it does seem to readdress some of the lost capacity. I think other manufacturers also offer this facility too.
#14
Couldn't agree more! Just put in your diary to charge all rechargable batteries once every six months if you don't use them very often and you'll be fine and alot better off financially. If you use them more frequently that once every six months then you're fine anyway as you'll have charged them within the last six months anyway making them last as long as these anyway. I believe from the posts that these are 2000 rather than 2700 anyway so even at 15% less capacity after six months standard rechargable batteries are not only going to last longer but they will have been alot cheaper too!
#15
Wilkinsons have similar type for £4.99 for 4 can't remember the brand but they are in most stores or this site vapextech have them as well as cheap 2700's - 8 for £9.20 incl del.
#16
Well I'm backing the OP on this one. Think these batteries are a great idea but are ideally more suited to low usage items such as TV remotes, toys, torches etc where you can leave the batteries in for months without losing their charge. I'd still prefer to use freshly charged high rated ones in a digi camera though.

Another alternative to the Eneloops are the Vapex instant rechargeables. I actually placed an order last night for several kinds of batteries here:

http://www.component-shop.co.uk/

You will find the best prices on Vapex - all kinds. They have some great prices on 'standard' recharchable AAs (2700mah) and AAAs. Worth having a good browse.

P&P is very reasonable - works out cheaper than buying from Vapex directly.

SirHugo :thumbsup:

Never heard of these until today and they sound ideal for me :) I'm always leaving batteries in things, thinking when I get to use them next time, they'll be working okay. Annoying when you've got to hunt around for new or wait to recharge some. Thanks for the pointer Mike!

good post for an alternative to the Sanyo batteries. how are the Vapex ones? anybody has any experience and whether they really hold the charge as promised?

I went for the Uniross Hybrio (equivalents) from Wilko (£4.99 for 4) so that I can now replace disposables in low power long-term use items. I was finding my high-power rechargables ran flat all too quickly in radios, clocks, remotes, etc due to the high rate of self discharge. It's also useful having batteries on standby for when the kids' toys run flat rather than having to wait to recharge a new set.

Would still use standard high-power rechargeables in my camera though.
#20
One thing that hasn't been mentioned is that these cannot be charged as many times as a normal rechargable. The Hybrio can take 500 charges, as oppposed to 1000 for normal ni-mh's.
I'm not too sure about the 'value' of these against something like the Powerex 2700. I'm sure it's worth having one set for those emergencies that demand immediate top-up of batteries. I would have a single set of these and the rest in normal 2700s. Powerex recommended.
£14.99 for eight isn't paticularly cheap BTW. I got 4 Hybrios and a Uniross one hour charger from Maplin for £7.99. Eneloop? Never heard of 'em.
[mod]#21
By recharging the ‘eneloop’, it can be used 1000 times over and is comparatively more efficient economically than the use once and throw away dry cell batteries. Furthermore, the memory effect has only minor effects on the devices it is used on and hence can be used without worrying about the memory effect.
Also when used on say a ski holiday when the temp is around zero c....

These seem to be well thought of in the USA too.

Well if you read my post (No. eighteen) you can get the same batteries 50p cheaper than your post!

My post is no.16.

And if you read any of my posts you'd realise that these are a complete waste of time, just get standard rechargables and put a note in diary to charge them once every six months and you'll have the same thing for a fair bit cheaper still!
#24
I bought 2 sets of eneloops for my girlfriends camera. They are great and work as indicated. Further more as with many things in life rated value doesnt tel everything (not all manufacturers are honest, dont say what sample variation can occur etc etc etc). The 2000mah rated eneloops are every bit as good as some other no name brand 2700mah std rechargeables we have.

[COLOR="Blue"]The Eneloop AA 8 pack has now been reduced to £9.99 at Amazon.[/COLOR]

Definitely a bargain now. If anyone did order @£14.99, time to get Amazon to refund you the difference.

(and v2drinkers - before you make another comment - I didn't 'get it wrong' the second time. For some reason a 'bug' was replacing the number 8 with a smiley in that post. Couldn't be bothered sortin' it. Seems OK in this post though)

If you don't know what Eneloop batteries are, see http://www.eneloop.info/whatseneloop.html for more info.
I've tested all kinds of rechargable batteries in the past and would never buy anything else but Eneloop batteries now, especially at this price! :thumbsup:
