TOP 100 REVIEWERon September 2, 2013

I use Sanyo Eneloop rechargeable batteries a long time (5+ years) and bought this new generation due to 500+ cycles already made on last pack that resulted to a decrease in their capacity.

After its purchase my testing showed that out-of-the box they are charged around 600mAh that is 75% of their rated capacity of 800mAh.

After they are recharged for the first time the average capacity increased around 5% comparing to their nominal capacity (840mAh) and remaining steady on that level for the next several recharging cycles I made.

The batteries are advertised able to be recharged up to 1800 cycles for which it will take several years for the average, even demanding users, in same time not losing more than 70% of their nominal capacity.
For what I've seen so far these batteries can be recommended although it would be impossible for me or most other users to experience abovementioned.

Nevertheless, if you are in need for more than 4 recharging batteries and/or have same problem I had with decreased capacity of older batteries, for this price you will be more than satisfied.

I always do my homework and try to be well educated before ordering online.
I rarely send anything back to Amazon but these almost made it back on the UPS truck before he left my neighborhood.

Could have been the just seller who fulfilled mine but check yours carefully.

My pack of batteries were clearly a fake or old stock, nearly all information on the packaging and batteries differed from the official Sanyo website.

Not worth the little savings to have my electronics damaged or give me inferior battery performance.

The description misleads on multiple points. It states this is the latest version of the Sanyo Eneloop battery. I later found that the latest version is 950mAh. The listing for this item states that it is 800mAh, but even that is untrue- it is in fact 750mAh.

Amazon, are you asleep at the wheel here?

So far, so good with these. I used them in my Panasonic phones, so I really cannot testify as to the 1800 cycle claim. However, these seem like high quality batteries. I'm hoping they're better than the originals. They seem expensive, but if you're just replacing phone batteries, you should see how expensive new phone systems cost. The Panasonic phones that we have would run us over $100 to replace and they still work perfectly fine. Why spend all that money when these are a fraction of the cost?

I've used rechargeable batteries for lighting and for spare batteries in my emergency survival kit for years. A problem that has always bothered me is most Ni-MH batteries self discharge rather quickly. I always had to recharge them before use to get full run time out them for lighting and recharge the ones in my emergency kit every month to make sure they were ready.

These Eneloop AAA batteries have a very high internal resistance and a resulting low self discharge rate. I can charge them and use them several months later with virtually no loss of charge. My other batteries would be half dead several months out.

As I said, these batteries are excellent in high demand and long storage uses. Charge them fully and put them away. They'll be ready to perform up to a year later. However, do recharge them at least once a year just to keep them topped off.

They're a little more expensive than others but well worth the investment. I've been gradually replacing all of my batteries with Eneloop. I'm very pleased with them.

A lot of our items uses AA and AAA batteries. We were getting exhausted buying new battery almost every month especially our cameras and our kids RC car/motorcycle. So we decided on purchasing these.

We purchased these battery from Costco to test it out since it also have adapters to make it from AA to C and D type. It's been over three years and we have over 20 AA and over 10 AAA. They have been proven reliable and long lasting especially on my camera when I'm using flash with it. We bought two large battery case and are planning to fill it full. The adapters works great on a lot of our items. We did write on the side of when we opened the sets so we don't mix them. Fortunately permanent markers write well on all of them.

My family and I highly recommend this product.

Pros: Long lasting, higher charge than the disposable brand names, durable, and reliable.
Cons: None.

No updates needed for this since I've tested it for three years already.

These work great, and buying the multi-pack results in a pretty good price. I put these in the charger right away to ensure they were fully charged and ready to go for our techs (I purchased these for our company - a technology development firm), and was pleased to see that, as advertised, they all arrived very close to fully charged. They could have easily been used directly out of the package. My boss had recommended them, as he has used them at home for quite awhile now and has been very happy with them. We're hoping that the life of the batteries also lives up to the claims, as this will not only save us money on batteries (we us a LOT each year), but will also save on waste. I also bought AA's and duplicated my review from there, as the same is true for both sizes. If there are any significant developments with these batteries as we use them, I will update the review.

Finally a NiMH battery that will hold a charge long enough to be useful in applications where the device is used in long term operation. I have used NiMH batteries in cameras, and other devices where they have higher power demand and they have performed well as long as you charge them and use them right away, but there are applications where you really need the battery to stay charged for extended periods of time, this was always the problem with NiMH batteries. How, with Sanyo's eneloop series, this problem seems to have been mitigated. If you use a lot of battery powered devices, and you want to cut out the waste of disposable batteries, these just might be the solution. The La Crosse battery chargers work well with these batteries too. Nice batteries...

This is a very good rechargeable NiMH battery. It holds a charge well
and does not quickly degrade when recharged multiple times. I have been using
these for only two years, but, in some applications, I have already recouped the
extra cost--and I do not have to worry about the disposing of old batteries.
These batteries operate at a slightly lower voltage than alkaline batteries I have not had
any problems with this, but there may be some applications where it matters.
The batteries come partly charged, but I recommend bringing them up to full charge if time permits.
The Sanyo charger works well.

I use these primarily for emergency lights and flash lights. All are working well so far. Will buy more soon.
