Sanyo eneloop HR4UTG4BP Ready to use Rechargeable Battery - Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) - 800mAh - 1.2V DC - Ready to use Rechargeable Battery
Pre-charged and ready to use off the shelf
Charge current x Time: (Fast charge x 2) 800mA x approximate 1.1h.

Noticed this on Asda's website, not sure if its in store as well, presumably it is, otherwise you have to add £4.95 delivery charge, which is not so good. Seems a very good deal for a low-discharge set of batteries, which are much better than the conventional NiMH, good make too. Shame they're not AA's, which is what I really wanted.

As this is my first post, it seems customary for me to ask you all to be nice to me for some reason. Well, I thought I would just go a bit further and ask if instead I could have a night of passion with your wife/girlfriend or significant other - preferably female, but hell, who's fussy?!!

cold, 2 x aaa for a pound in poundland so these would cost 2 quid not 5

ma is 750 i think, so only slightly less, only worth paying this sort of price for 2000+mahs

superb price for Sanyo Eneloop, think swafe has gone barking mad :)

What they sell hybrio's in poundland, or do you not understand the difference?
#4
I ordered these not sure how well they compare but other people have said the AAs are good so im hoping the AAAs are good too.

http://www.7dayshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=777_3&products_id=107340

its £3.99 for one or £3.79 each for 2-3 etc, 800mah low self discharge too. (packs of 4 of course)
#5
good price, these were certainly full price instore last week at around 9 quid - no idea about current instore price or previous online price though.

You just don't know the difference, these are a different type - Low Self Discharge. A WORLD of difference

AAA rechargeables also don't come in 2000mah capacity! If only they did! They would be AAs

good price
I think cheaper than the 7 day shop own brand. cant recall how much i paid exactly

Yes, I've now got a fair few of both AAs and AAAs in those and I am very happy with them, still seem to be by far and away the best value in Low Self Discharge rechargeables.

Only problem is, with them being more convenient, it means I am now less keen to use the other perfectly working rechargeables I have!
#11
whats the difference between enerloop & normal ones them? surely there both similar mah ratings so can only hold similar charge?

are you not better spending a fiver on some 2200mahs which have 3 x the capacity of these, just not enterwhateveritscalled?

No totally different, main difference is they keep charge well for months, so they are like disposables, they will be ready to use when you wan them, very unlike standard ones; and, as I said preveiously you can't get 2000mah AAAs, they would have to be AA size to get that capacity, whatever type.
#13
is it just that they hold their charge, so you can charge them and use them in a years time? they still only hold the same amount tho dont they? i dont get it :D

Just treat yourself to a pack of eneloop, you will see what everyone is on about, and never buy a another type of rechargeable ever again. I have allsorts of other rechargeables and never use them for anything other than remotes or clocks untill I have enough eneloops for everything

That is the key difference, but it's a significant big one.

For example put a normal rechargeable battery in a remote control and it will be nearly dead in four weeks. A lower capacity hybrid battery will still be powering the remote control six months later without recharging.

Put normal rechargeables in an occasional use torch or camera and they'll be on the verge of running out the moment you need to rely on them. Hybrids will sit there happily for weeks retaining their charge so that when you grab the camera or torch it will be nearly as fully charged as when you last used it weeks ago.

For me Hybrid rechargeables have changed the game. Except for smoke alarms and watches I no longer have any need for disposable batteries. They've already paid for themselves and with a quality charger they should last me for a good few years.

#17
Don't Sainsburys still have the Sanyo Cyclo batteries for £3 for 4 (AA and AAA) ?

Sanyos are Enloops, just rebranded - it says on the packet
#18
How is it that I have a Sony RM3000 (very high power and also used on 455khz telly) use it for all my hifi tellies also backlight on a lot and I honestly can't say how often I have to change my bog standard 'apparently crap' rechargeable batteries? Same goes with my Sigma flash, although I could possibly count the cycles if I really wanted!

I suspect because my recharger doesn't destroy the batteries by charging them too rapidly and over heating them! It is micro controlled, independent and also handles alkalines above 80% charge. It is about 10 years old but is the best charger I have ever had!

The funniest thing is this was an innovations charger and cost me about £30 but like I said nothing else I have had has cared for batteries so well - brilliant little thing!

Only down side is it takes about 15 - 20+ hours (yes longer than basic chargers!) to charge although batteries are never even warm. It then reports final voltage and power available from each cell on an lcd panel. I still use some 750ma/h varta accuplus ultra AA's which are in my readily used box but it happily handles the latest 3.2Ah AA batteries too.

Now if only these enloop whatevers had locators in them for when your 6 year old decides to stuff them in places that rarely see the light of day then I would really be impressed :)
#19
can i use these with a basic charger or would i need to purchase a special one?
#20
Yes you can.
Great Price!
#21
why can't you guys get it? eneloop batteries are the best therefore cost more. Just like with anything else in life. Forget the spec and buy these at this fantastic price.
#22
But - to be clear - good or not, if you discharge your batteries quickly (cycle lights, powering kids' toys etc) buying low self-discharge is unnecessary. These look like a good price for what they are though.

Hi,

What is a good charger for these?

I have a fast charger 15 mins but I have heard it damages the batteries-is that correct?

I think 1 to 2 hours is the best charging time -is that right.

thank-you

I had the one from Lidl a few months ago. It is a very good charger. It even discharges the battery`s first. It also charges odd number off battery`s and types.

Hi, super quick chargers are the worst thing you could use to charge your batteries, if you want to have them for a long time.
Charger worthy of those batteries is Technoline BL-700.
Simply Google for it and you will see why. In other countries it is sold under name La Crosse BC-700.
#26
I bought an eneloop charger with batteries some time ago on one of Amazon's silly offers, The eneloop charger is very good, USB with flashing light while charging and changes to fully lit when charged, takes a couple of hours

This annoys me so much! Next thread people will be all over saying 'your Cadburys chocolate deal is too expensive, you can get cheap unbranded chocolate from poundland'

or 'Those Kelloggs Corn Flakes are not a deal, you can get own brand'

If anyone can show cheaper Eneloop then show it, please. If anyone is telling me to buy different, then start a new thread coz I'm not interested! Took me over a year to make the jump to Eneloops, and I am not going back for no one!

These are the best AAA batteries on the market regardless of mah rating. Tried to order but you still have to pay the delivery charge to collect in store.
#32
Hot!
Eneloop/Hybrios etc are the way to go*, and although there's not a huge difference between the different brands/ re-badges etc, these Japanese made Eneloops are slighlty better if you read the battery geek reviews.

*In the majoity of applications. I'm sure someone will be along to disagree.
#33
Best recharcables by an absolute mile.

We don't use the Wii much, so our old Energizer ones we'd spend ages charging them up, only for the next time we turn the Wii on in a couple of months (if that) for the batteries to be completely drained.

Put a set of Eneloop in (AA, not AAA of course, but the same technology) just before Christmas, used the Wii a few times since and it's still showing as full battery when I loaded it up two nights ago! Fantastic :)

I have a uniross 15 minute charger and half my batteries don't work in it anymore :(

Having to buy another slower charger me thinks, so maybe from 7dayshop with some more rechageable batteries.

Don't use a 15 minute charger on these, the batteries will get too hot and vent electrolyte. Sanyo recommend a 2 hour plus charge rate. If you don't have a suitable charger, 7dayshop do quite a cheap delta-V intelligent charger with 4 independent charging channels - I think the pdf instructions indicate about a 4 hour charge time for 4 AAs - http://www.7dayshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=777_3&products_id=105028 which would probably be ok.

£6.50 here and fulfilled by amazon

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sanyo-Eneloop-Pack-Batteries-2000mAh/dp/B000IDUOPA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1265891845&sr=8-1

7dayshop have 2 Sony cycleenergy batteries (I think these used to be and probably still are rebranded sanyo eneloops) with a compact charger for £3.79 http://www.7dayshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=777_3&products_id=107991. It will just be a dumb single channel charger though.

There are some very confused and excessively advertising-imprinted people here. Can't see why, it's straightforward enough.

Low Self Discharge rechargeables (LSD) are the way forward, streets ahead of the standard NiMH type. Apart from rare situations, most people are going to find this type the battery to buy.

Eneloop is but one brand of LSD battery, you will find generally they are a very highly priced one, as are all Sony products. The name does NOT particularly impress me, having bought Sony often in the past, and been disappointed, however the Eneloop do work fine, albeit expensive. There are several other brands of LSD battery out there. I have Eneloop, Instants and Good to Go.... (and there are others too that I have not tried) and in practical, actual use, I can NOT tell the difference, so if there is a difference, then it is very minor. Consequently I would buy any one of them, if the price was right. Currently the Good to Go ones are by far the cheapest, so that's what I would buy, however if any others were cheaper, then they would be first on the list.
With many products, the very cheapest is NOT often the best value, in this case, perhaps as the technology is relatively new, there is nothing to choose between them; it may not always be like this though, as every backstreet in the far east will begin to push them out, then I will have to look at the option at the time.

If you are a "Brand Queen" then you will happily waste money on something dearer with a label, convinced of the superiority of your purchase, whatever I or anyone else says, so there isn't an argument there, just get on with it and spend.

Erm, Eneloop are made by Sanyo, not Sony. Sanyo invented the technology, and from what I've read their product is still at least marginally superior to most of the other LSD batteries on the market (hold more of their charge for longer and higher maximum current draw). Do watch out for fakes though.
