Ikea LADDA 2450 are meant to be these exact same batteries, £5ish a pack. Made in the same factory by Panasonic according to my research.

Their is huge variation in quality. There is also a convenience factor in that if you have a device, say a flash for a DSLR camera, which requires a lot of battery power but is rarely used, you don’t want the batteries giving up on you after being left stored for a few months.


The Lidl batteries have 1000 charge cycles, the eneloops only have 500, also £12 gets you 16 Lidl batteries, that is quite a lot of reserve power, and let's face it if you have not used a device for a few months you are probably going to give the batteries a charge anyway, especially if you want to be on the safe side and you are relying on that device for work etc, also keep in mind the Lidl ones are pre charged low discharge batteries also. The Lidl batteries out perform my Duracell 2450mah batteries by at least 20%. I am not arguing about the quality of eneloops but the fact that the Lidl batteries are strong competition and excellent value.

I've been using rechargeable batteries since the 80s, I've done a lot of reading in that time.
It looks like SW as beaten me to most of my points.
Essentially, 4 of these or16 lidl? Give me the lidl any day.

These are great. Have some heat!
Heat, but if your not to worried about the brand then here you can have twice as many for half the price, these are also low self discharge batteries hotukdeals.com/dea…e=2

It’s not the brand people would be concerned with, it’s the fact that eneloop batteries are amongst the best in the world for both number of recharges, capacity degradation over time and how long they keep their charge for. I doubt the Lidl ones can match these.

I doubt these would outlast sets of the lidl batteries for roughly the same price.

Edit 4 sets.

Normally I'd agree but the Lidl LSD batteries are definitely good performers at a great price. I only ever buy Eneloops or Lidl rechargeables.
I've been testing the Lidl batteries, for the price paid they're not bad but they all vary in capacity. You can discharge four Enoloops and they'll all charge up to within 10-30mAh of each other whereas the Lidl batteries are all over the place, most of the time slightly under their rated capacity. As stated above, the white Ikea batteries are made in Japan as are the Gold ones - supposedly Eneloops in disquise and they do seem to behave like them when it comes to charging.
Since learning how good the eneloops are I've got 5x sets, also energizer and duracell too and some 7dayshop ones. Eneloops outperform the lot, would never buy duracell rechargeable or energizer again.

Interested in ikea, will pick up a few packs if I am passing even though I've got too many batteries already.

Prob buy some lidl ones too just because they're good value. Hotuk is hammering my wallet.

Is this really a good deal feels. Like normal price?
If you have access to "Which" testing, you'll find that the IKEA out performed the Panasonic in all long-term use tests, was equal on single charge battery life, scored 3/5 stars for charge retention v 4/5 stars for Panasonic. Overall scores were 80% IKEA v 76% Panasonic.
IKEA CONS: Nothing major, but other Best Buys retain more charge when not in use.
Panasonic CONS: Other batteries stand up better to long-term use.

After MUCH investigation, I have gone for an Xtar VC4 over a Nitecore D4. Seems to be slightly better thought if and I got mine from a well-respected eBay outlet for £19.59 (less the 20%, so £15ish), or £22 from Amazon. Hope that helps.

Glad to hear most users of these batteries like them - picked up x3.

Technoline bl700!!! I payed about 25/30 for it but its faaaarrrrr superior to a normal battery charger, it keeps your batteries well maintained so its a great investment for your batteries for the next 5+ years if you look after it.

Being made in the same factory doesn’t really mean much as the QA will be totally different.

Xtar VC4 charger for me too Interesting to read about the Ikea batteries though...I've got a few Eneloops, but would obviously rather pay less for (nearly) the same quality!

More good news!

Proper sad, but can't wait for my new charger to arrive!
I can never find any Lidl rechargeable batteries in my local stores. Anybody know where I can buy some please online as I can't find them online either?

They come in stores every few months, my local still had a few packets left the other day. If you can't find any you are probably looking around spring now for the next batch.

The Technoline BL-700
32954796-qIJAA.jpglooks similar to the Youshiko YC4000 (£27.99) amazon.co.uk/dp/…UH0
32954796-pires.jpg and Uniross UCQ001, 1 Hour Ultimate at £19.99 amazon.co.uk/Ult…CB0
32954796-kKbRW.jpgWonder if they're all clones of one another?

Edit: I made this into a Deal, but also, saw this on 7dayshop where they state (about the Uniross UCQ001)

7dayshop.com/pro…001

UNiROSS ULTIMATE charger is similar in function to the La Crosse / TechnoLine chargers but with added USB 5V output.
A more practical version, In terms of power output the ULTIMATE charger 1000 mA is more powerful than La Crosse / Technoline BC 700 (700mA).

Edit: Also, the TechnoLine charger doesn't have a USB output - the Youshiko and Uniross do.

I remember not knowing what one to choose because there is lots of clones of each other like you're right, just google it see what one/s are the most recommended since i've forgot, made up with my technoline tho
There were rumblings and mumblings about Fujitsu Rechargeable Batteries being "real" Eneloops as they took over ownership of the old Sanyo factory (afaik), some even call them Fujiloops.

And some saying Amazon Basics rechargeables are rebranded (Panasonic) Eneloops. There are so many different opinions it gets quite confusing.

The Technoline BL-700 has "Three user selectable charge current settings 200, 500, 700mA"
whereas the other two (Uniross UCQ001 and Youshiko YC4000) are "200mA/500mA/700mA/1000mA".

Have you published your research for peer review?
There was a youtube guy 99.95% certain that Ladda and Eneloop 2500 were the same, yet his voltage curve showed Eneloops higher much of the time.
God knows how each will fare after 100 cycles, but I do know that my Eneloop 2000 are still as good as new. But I now have various dead or low capacity Lidl ones.

They might come from the same factory but might use a less advanced or lower grade materials. Obviously if stuff is graded, Eneloops get the higher grades.

Unless you need extra high capacity, the Waitrose AA deal is better for long term quality.

The 2 year old Amazon ones I've got are very good and probably Eneloops, but the new ones are a different capacity so it might have changed.
Brilliant rechargeable batteries, thanks OP
