Paid around £7 in Asda last week for these, so Amazon is a bit cheaper if you don't mind the wait.

been this price at 7dayshop.com for ages................

7dayshop.com/cat…241

they get even cheaper if you buy 2 packs or more if tis helps anyone:thumbsup:

Also been this price on Amazon for months (give or take 10p).

Voting cold, as not the cheapest price for Eneloops, the RRP for Eneloops is a joke, and there are plenty of other hybrid batteries which are considerably cheaper. IMHO it's not worth paying the premium for the Eneloop brand name.

Rufus.

I bought loads of these at this price (or thereabouts) from Amazon months ago.

I'm still voting HOT though because they are truly excellent batteries and I don't care if other brands are cheaper, these are QUALITY and you know what you're getting and you soon make your money back.

HOT HOT HOT.

Hi Guys,

What is the best charger for these batteries? I saw this one on 7 day shop and was wondering if it is any good, or whether there are better chargers out there? Any help much appreciated:

Very interesting read about Eneloops V other types of hold the charge rechargables:

For my money Eneloops are one of the best because of their higher operating voltage under load. Hence my camera does not report low battery as quickly as other brands.

I am using these 2100ma batteries from 7-day shop:

Same as the Sanyo but much cheaper. Bought 6 months ago and they really last ages in my camera. Took 1000 pics and still juice left. Have only charged them once since bought. (it's a small Kodak camera using 2 AAs).

ManiZ, I am using this charger

I haven't check prices of these for a while but I would certainly recommend them. We use them in digital cameras , remotes, toys and Wii controls and they last a long time between charges.

these are excellent batteries , even came in a handy plastic case.

also they are proper AA sized and fit everything. I know that sounds daft but I have had loads of cheap rechargeables where they are either too fat and get stuck or have shallow +ve terminals which dont make contact in some situations.

I am using them too - in camera as well as several other items. I don't thinik my camera has been used since Xmas, and it is still holding charge with a set of these when I just checked it.

No difference that I can tell between them and the Eneloops I already had. If they are different, it is that small it is going to need technical tests to see that difference, and they come out at £3.69 for 4 AAs or AAAs when you buy more than one pack of 4 at a time.

Err..... you must be reading a different article! A quick scan of that article tells me something very different... the GP Recycko ones come out a fair bit better than the Eneloops in that!

You must have missed it, it's stated a few times, a quick scan will do that for you. For my Camera the eneloops work best as the other types can report low battery too quickly and the camera shuts down, this depends on your camera though.

Quotes:

"However in voltage sensitive/threshold devices the GP ReCyko or Kodak Pre-Charged may not be able to deliver all their capacity because their operating voltage under-load has dropped below the threshold cutoff of the device -"

"So this shows eneloops have higher operating voltage maintanence under-load - but it is only significant in voltage sensitive devices (for which Pentax dSLRs using AA batteries are notorious). "

Ah... I see, so you are looking at the mouse in the room, but seem to have totally missed the Elephant! :whistling:

Just reporting my findings and reasons why, backed up with others testing. Eneloops are well regarded and are my choice for said reasons, if you prefer poundland batteries fair enough, for my Camera work they are not as effective.

I don't use Poundland batteries, all I use now are Low Self Discharge batteries, of about 3 different brands; but all I am paying currently is £3.79 for 4x AAs and I can't see the difference to the Eneloops I already have, which cost a LOT more.

Certainly the thread you posted would not support buying Eneloops either, except under certain unusual situations; (after all, there is a lot more use for a battery than just in a camera!) although of course GP Recyckos are not currently available as cheap as in that thread :-(

Just got my Eneloop AA's from 7dayshop - good price, but the pack datestamp was 2008/02 which makes them 2 years old.
