8 AA & 4 AAA Sanyo Eneloop Batteries With Charger £20.38 at Costco

Found 3rd Sep 2014
Not my first post so be as harsh as you like!
Widely regarded as the best rechargeable batteries ever made so I won't go into detail about the batteries.

I've been looking for these particular batteries for a while but they don't come around often at an affordable price that I can justify spending.
Currently £12 for 4 AA's on Amazon, this has 12 plus a charger for £20 so I think this is a better deal?

Was found in the Watford Store and I think as with most Costco deals, it's a national price but depends on whether your local store actually stocks them...
If anyone knows of anywhere cheaper please let me know so I can go get them!

NiMH? Ni-Cd? Li-ion?
What's the mAh of each AA and AAA, and amperage/charge time of the charger

Look them up jezcap? They are NiMH and very popular. Now took over by Panasonic so could be old stock?

With out looking them up. Eneloop are Ni-Mh technology with a chemical twist.
Typically 1900mAh for AA and 900mHa for AAA.

I'm sure google will fill in the gaps and my approximations.

not online , £30 / year membership ?

Here is link to the Eneloop web site. panasonic-eneloop.eu/hom…tml

In it you will discover links to Catalogues,Data Sheets and a plethora of technical information about these.
One feels sure there is more than enough info to keep a demanding chap like yourself entertained for many happy hours.
Enjoy.

Thanks, I just thought those might have been important factors that may deter the cold votes (though most voting could be swung with an inflated manufacturer's RRP
Will press hot on this for you, bud

You're not going to pay for a 1yr membership only to buy some batteries, you muppet!

Apologies Ozzy - normal Costco negativity is aimed at the membership fee. Re-reading your comment, I jumped to the conclusion that you were 'one of them'. Yes, membership fee is £30 (incl spouse card) and £25 for trade (I think)

Hi jez, appreciate the feedback, just seemed everyone on HUKD knew everything there is to know about these batteries haha.

The amperage of the charger is 280mA for the AA, can't remember what it was for AAA. So it's a slow but safe charger aimed at battery longevity. I'm not fussed about the charger though as I've alright got a 'smart' battery charger. It is a rapid one though so I'm a bit worried about damaging the batteries with it.

Looking for these with image search, I found them on Amazon (com rather than .co.uk) and the mAh specs of the batteries, if these are indeed the same ones, is: -

AA capacity: 2000mAh

AAA capacity: 800mAh

amazon.com/Ene…1E0

Consistently considered about the best general use batteries out there. Not the highest power but then you can charge them a couple of thousand times and they last for ages.

At the time of writing, the Cosco in Edinburgh had a very well stocked display endcap with these, today, Friday 12th September. I had briefly looked in the computer/television/accessories department, then checked the batteries display, mid store left, which is solidly Duracell. It was only later that I noticed the endcap. Glad to have got them. Next I will look out for some 2400mAh Sanyo Eneloop rechargeables for my flashgun, which one two of the group test reviews I read, marginally bettering the Duracell 2400mAh. Either would be great but I haven't seen them on offer. Glad to have got these, especially good value with the included charger. Hot.

The 2500mAh VapexTech batteries are cheaper and higher capacity for the same amount £11.25

Come in a neat handy carry case and look up some reviews consistently always recommended

Not heard of VapexTech. Would be a good deal but it doesn't mention how many charge cycles it will last for as that is what would be a decider for me. Would rather pay more for eneloops if the VapexTech ones only have 500 odd charge cycles like the rest. However, if the VapexTech ones are identical in quality then maybe I 'might' opt for the VapexTech ones if warranty is good. My only apprehension is i don't know much about them but if they're good then those batteries are a good deal!

Do a search on HUKD or even Google.
The reviews are there.

I think one deal on here reached 2000+ heat.

Well I will when I need to but as you can see I've just bought a set of batteries so no need.
Doubt reviews will mention cycle limit but when I need another set I will have a search.

Sanyo Eneloop, not Panasonic? Are they 4th gen Some of the later Sanyos before Panasonic acquired the brand. were 4th gen but most are 3rd gen, so shorter lifetime (fewer charge cycles capacity)The chemistry has been developed between 3G and 4G to increase the cycle uty. .The eneloop brand quote the minimum capacity.Some manufacturers will quote typica. The number of charging cycles is the number o charges the batteries can take until [ter statistically representative sample}] they only charge to 60% of the initial rating
.If they are stated as Sanyo I wouldn't bother, Id rather pay a little more for 300 more charges and IIRC lower self-discharge.
