Product Description

Eneloop batteries offer exceptional shelf life so you can use your rechargeable batteries when and where you need them most. You can charge your eneloop batteries once, store them away for up to three years and use them at a moment's notice. After charging eneloop batteries they will maintain 75% of their capacity for up to three years. They are ready to be used immediately right out of the pack. The AC charger is designed to accept charging 2 or 4 pcs. AA or AAA Ni-MH rechargeable batteries. A convenient charging indicator light will flash while charging and then stay on once charging has been completed. The time needed to completely recharge fully discharged AA Ni-MH batteries is approximately 10 hours and 7 hours for AAA Ni-MH batteries.

Charging Indicator LEDs
A charging indicator light will flash while charging and then will remain on once charging has been completed. There is one charging indicator LED for each pair of batteries installed. To ensure safety, the charger stops charging when it senses an overheated battery, and it won’t charge defective batteries.



Fast, Efficient Charging System
SANYO vs Conventional chargers

Compared to conventional battery chargers that take more than twice the amount of time to recharge batteries, the SANYO 4-position Ni-MH rechargeable battery charger can completely recharge fully discharged AA Ni-MH batteries in approximately 10 hours and 7 hours for AAA Ni-MH batteries. This represents a whopping 50% savings in time and energy usage.

Integrated, Retractable AC Plug
Retractable AC Plug

The SANYO 4-position charger offers the ultimate in convenience since it features a retractable AC plug for direct connection to an AC wall outlet - no detachable AC cables!  It accepts input voltages ranging from 100 to 240VAC, 50/60Hz for use internationally.

The charger delivers a consistent, stable 300mA output current to 2/4 AA batteries or 150mA output current to 2/4 AAA batteries assuring that it won’t degrade your batteries. The retractable plug and wide input voltage range makes it a perfect travel companion.

Unlike other rechargeable batteries and charger sets of a less quality, the SANYO eneloop batteries and charger are not prone to memory effects which degrade the performance of batteries over time. eneloop batteries can be recharged when they are fully, or partially drained.

The SANYO charger, when used in conjunction with a set of SANYO eneloop batteries, delivers excellent performance-to-cost advantages over conventional battery/charger combinations; providing long lasting power at a cost of less than 4¢ per recharge*. The key benefit for consumers is a lower cost of ownership compared to conventional rechargeable battery/charger solutions.



*eneloop Recharge Cost Assumptions and Calculations

0.144 Kilowatts @ 8 hours per 4 batteries
4 AA --- 1,500 recharges each
1,500 cycles x 8 hours each = 12,000 hours of AC power
0.144 KW x 12,000 hours = 1,728 KWH
1,728 KWH x $0.12 = $207.36
Initial product cost = $21.99 (4AA eneloop + 4 position charger)
Total cost of product and recharging = ($207.36 + $21.99) = $229.35
Total number of recharge cycles = (4 batteries x 1,500 each) = 6,000 recharges
Cost of recharge = ($229.35/6,000) = $0.038 (3.8¢ PER RECHARGE)
NOTE: Cost of electricity is based on 2010 national US average energy costs @ $0.12 per KWH

Customer Reviews

They hold their charge a long time, and they last longer than other rechargeables.
M. Ledyard
It is great that the batteries can keep a charge for so long--they are ready to go when I need them.
Marc
They save you a ton of money when compared to buying throw away batteries all the time.

Size Name: 8 Pack AA
I have done extensive testing on the original eneloop rechargeable batteries since early 2007, shortly after they were introduced in the US. I have also tested the blue second-generation eneloop cells from the Costco eneloop package back in 2010. But this is the first time I have seen second-gen eneloop in white wrappings being sold in the US. With so much talk about counterfeit eneloop going around, I was understandably cautious when I purchased those SANYO NEW 1500 eneloop 8 Pack AA Ni-MH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries.

I tested four of those cells, using my old La Crosse BC-900 Battery Charger.
- Right out of the package, their average remaining charge is 1568mAh, or nearly 80% of the rated capacity of 2000mAh. The spread is also very small, from 1558 to 1577mAh. This proves that they are indeed low-self-discharge type. (Date code on my cells says "11-01", or Jan 2011)
- After one recharge/discharge cycle, their average capacity improved to 2115mAh
- After two more recharge/discharge cycles, their average capacity leveled off at 2133mAh, or more than 6% higher than the rated capacity.

The above results are very consistent with what I have previously observed, while testing second-gen eneloop cells in the Costco package.

Size Name: 4 pack AA
I have been using Sanyo eneloop low-self-discharge NiMH batteries since beginning of 2007, and I'm completely satisfied with them. One thing I noticed is that newcomers to the rechargeable battery arena often have similar questions/confusions about eneloop. So here is my list of eneloop Frequently Asked Questions. This list is work in progress.

[Q1] My Sanyo eneloop AA batteries say '1900mAh' on them. Are they counterfeits?
[A] All eneloop AA cells (both original and second-gen versions) are rated for "Typ 2000mAh, Min 1900mAh" according to Sanyo. The confusing part is that 2nd-gen eneloop AA cell only has "Min 1900mAh" printed on it, even though the actual measured capacity is close to 2100mAh.
Simialrily, eneloop AAA cells are rated for "Typ 800mAh, Min 750mAh".

[Q2] Date code on my new eneloop cells says '10 01' (Jan 2010). Should I exchange them for newer batteries?
[A] Relax! Unlike ordinary NiMH cells, Sanyo eneloop are still perfectly good even after 5 years in storage. Once you recharge them, they will return to 100% capacity again.

[Q3] What is the difference between 'Pre-Charged', 'Hybrid', 'Stay-Charged', 'Active Charged', 'Ready to Use' and 'Ready to Go'?
[A] Those are all marketing terms for Low-Self-Discharge (LSD) NiMH batteries. Sanyo first used the term 'Pre-Charged' for Sanyo eneloop back in 2006. Rayovac used 'Hybrid', and so on.

[Q4] I just received some new eneloop batteries. Do I need to recharge them before use?
[A] You can use them right out of the package. However, eneloop cells are only charge up to ~75% when they left factory. So you can use a Smart charger to 'top-off' their charges. Do NOT do this with a Dumb charger because it will badly over-charge them.

Size Name: 4 pack AAA
This package (Sanyo SEC-HR4U4BPN) contains four second-generation eneloop AAA rechargeable batteries. I have tested those cells using my old La Crosse BC-900 Advanced Battery Charger. Here are my findings:
- Right out of the package, the average remaining charge is 640mAh, or 80% of the rated capacity (800mAh)
- After the first recharge cycle, the average capacity increased to 839mAh.
- After two more recharge/discharge cycles, the average capacity leveled off at 843mAh, or 5% higher than rated capacity.

The above is very consistent with the results I obtained last year, while testing 2nd-gen eneloop AAA cells from the Costco package. Therefore I have no doubt that those batteries are genuine. Date code embossed on them says "10-12", which means Dec 2010 (see my upload in the "Customer Images" section, if you need to know where to find the date code).

According to Sanyo press releases, those 2nd-generation eneloop cells offer several benefits over the original eneloop:
- Can be recharged "up to 1500 cycles" (vs. "1000 cycles" for the original)
- Can hold "75% charge after 3 years" (vs. "80% after 2 years")
- Works down to -20 degree C (vs.
