It is 'charged' not 'pre charged' in this context.

D'ya know if these are compatible with NON-duracell chargers?

I can't see a problem ...I have a Vapex charger and am not expecting any problems.

Where did you hear that these are re-badged eneloop batteries?

I'd say they aren't. Panasonic owns Sanyo I believe who market rebadged envelops.
It is unlikely Duracell is allowed to do so too, though not impossible.

Duracell rebadged Eneloops some time back - it seems unlikely that they still do when there are so many other options these days. See this CandlePower Forums thread from 2008.

Brilliant price

Wouldn't buy that charger as the charge circuits are in pairs which will damage cells unless they are perfectly balanced! Much better to grab a charger that has individual charge circuits imho.

This is a great budget intelligent charger that use's individual circuits:

This one is good...takes 8 batteries either in any combo i.e one battery or 5 or 7 or whatever. It is a smart charger so each battery is charged individually.

I have a Powerex Maha C9000 which were very popular on forums with Eneloop owners. Don't know about the BL700 being the best although there is a comparison here:

Pmsl...that's the spirit.

Personally I prefer Vapextech batteries. The AA 2500mAh are £6.45 for 4 or £11.25 for 8

Vapextech are excellent, and have a very high capacity, come ready charged and stay charged when not being used.

Great find. Always running out of these.

Anyone used these in an Xbox 360 controller? Are they 1.2v or 1.5?

This is normally given as a reply. It's a few years old but I still stand by it. I've got four different brands of LSD batteries and the Vapextechs are great. Use them in XBox remotes all the time. They last ages if you're not using the mic.

My experience of Vapextech rechargeables has not been good as all of them became faulty after a year. They were used sparingly.

Sanyo Eneloops are the best imo followed by Panasonic.

Maybe you ought to tell amazon they are miss selling their batteries. Although they do say in the description they are fully charged at the factory so they most definately not post purchase charged batteries.

I have the Technoline BL700 and I'm happy with it overall. It's my first decent charger having owned cheapo rapid chargers in the past.

One niggle though:

- as mentioned in the review that you've linked, the display will show NULL with some batteries. The workaround is to charge said battery in a 'dumb' charger for a few seconds. Then the battery will charge as normal when reinserted back into the BL700 charger.

I bought lots of Vapextech's a few years ago solely on the strength of that review - I reckon I have around 40 or so Vapextech AA 'Instant' batteries. I too used to rate these batteries (and they're inexpensive compared to other LSD batteries), but around 15 of them have started to lose their recharge capacity.

These AA batteries are quoted at 2500mAh, and according to my BL700 charger, some of the batteries struggle to reach more than 1500mAh. I can sometimes get a bit more charge out of them by using the Refresh mode on the BL700, but most of them just refuse to go any higher. The batteries are around 2 - 3 years old, and they haven't been recharged that many times.

I then bought a couple of packs of Eneloops, and despite having a lower capacity ~ 1900mAh, they stay charged for much longer. Also found that they consistently recharge to at least their advertised capacity. I now have around 30 Eneloops (including the black higher capacity XX ones), and none have suffered the same problem as the Vapextech's.

pre means before

charged means, well you know

so its saying it has been charged already before you got it

I believe intelligent chargers i.e. the BL-700 cant charge batteries if they seem to have no voltage, you need to use the dummy chargers to get it working again on the intelligent ones. I too experienced this and threw them away, now I realise it was probably just too low of a voltage for the intelligent charger to begin charging.

I have the Duracell 2400 ones and they are the best batteries I've ever used, recycles my flashgun super fast

Erm....

They keep their charge well
They are reliable - I've got about 30 and have not had a problem with any
They have a large capacity and last a long time
They are priced competitively with other batteries of lower spec
They generally come in a nice little plastic case!

What other aspects are you looking for in a rechargeable?

Erm no. Pre does indeed mean 'before'. So what are they doing prior to charging them ?

If they had described as 'Ready Charged' or similar that would be correct.

Same as 'Preheat the oven to 200F' It's just 'heat'
