Top customer reviews
The Amazon Basics have been very inconsistent since buying them. I've bought three of the 16 packs so far. The first pack was "precharged" but 4 were returned to me, drained, after only 4 days. One of those 4 was simply dead. The charger couldn't even recognize there was a battery in the the chamber. Eight more of them were returned to my desk after 2 weeks. One of those 8 only recharged to half spec. The last 4 were returned after 4 weeks and two of those four only recharged to half spec.
When recharging them, I always fully discharge before recharging. The eneloop rarely, if ever, have any issues. The first box of 16 Amazon Basics have just been inconsistent. I'm hesitant to open the other two packs I bought. I might return them and just suck it up and buy the more expensive eneloop. At the pace we are dependent upon and cycle through batteries, it's worth it to have the reliability of the eneloop. Having to go through and discharge and recharge the Amazon Basics two or three times to get them back to operating specs is simply too time consuming. I am giving them a 2-star rating based on the fact that the price is still good even with only 12 working batteries and that they serve as a good backup plan while I'm recharging the eneloop.
UPDATE: I called Amazon customer service and they authorized the return for the batteries. If you decide to order these batteries, my best advice is to try them quickly to ensure there are no duds in the batch.
The 1st reason I like these batteries is the fact that the discharge is as amazon put it "extremely gradual" this means the batter will hold the majority of their charge after multiple uses, which is great.
I will say that the batteries do come ready to use, but only arrive charged to about 25%, meaning that you can pop them right in whatever appliance you so choose upon arrival, but they won't last very long, I'm not sure if it was just my batteries in particular or if all batteries packaged and shipped arrive a 1/4 charged. It's just something to keep in mind, that if you do choose to use these immediately after opening that they won't last long, but that by no means the batteries are defective.
As you can see I awarded this product 4 stars and not 5 because I think it would be nice for Amazon to clarify that the batteries are only charged to 25% to their full capacity among arrival, which isn't that big of a deal to me, but may lead potential purchasers to think the batteries are defective, if they use them immediately out the box.
With all that being said I would recommend these rechargeable batteries if your looking for a set that will last and are priced vey well.
