My guess is that you should be able to charge eneloop AAA cells inside your Panasonic DECT 6.0 phone. The phone only knows that a new set of batteries has been inserted after a power interruption, So it will give you the standard "Please charge phone for 7 hours" message. But it cannot know what type of battery is placed in it. The factory-equipped AAA NiMH cells are probably lower capacity (~600mAh) type. That's why the eneloop AAA (~800mAh) works better. It is safe to use higher capacity batteries in a slow-charger designed for lower capacity batteries..

The problem is that most likely the phone charger is a dumb straight, non terminating charger that is completely overcharging the eneloops. I really am annoyed at Panasonic for doing something in their phones such that a completed charged set of eneloops will show up as need to be charged. Stupid. I want to charge my eneloops in my own smart charger, not the dumb phone cradle chargers.

Thank you for the info. A few days ago, I got the 'Eneloops' anyway. Maybe my stock Panasonic batteries had run their useful life course, because the Eneloops work very well and last much longer than the Panasonics. Plus the 7 hour audio and text recharge message does pop up when they run low (someone had suggested that the phone just 'dies', with no message). In any case, I can always use the Eneloops until I am not satisfied with their performance. They only cost me like ten bucks for 4.

Thanks for the lowdown. I didn't spend much money for the Eneloops, so as long as the work better than the Panasonic stock batteries, i'm happy for now. I will look into the batteries you mentioned though if I need to.

So what is the conclusion? :-)

I have a panasonic dect 6.0 phone and its batteries are no good. I am using eneloop and charging them on panasonic charger because if I charge my eneloop (from Costco pack) and put them in the phone, I get an error message - "Please charge phone for 7 hours". These eneloop work so much better than panasonic batteries.

How does charging on panasonic charger that comes with the phone affect eneloop?

I've been using eneloop generation 1 batteries in my panasonic cordless phones for 6 months. No problems; never expected any anyhow.
