I just ordered these and got the 4th gen!!!!
I have been using Eneloops (along with Powerex, Imedion and Energizers) for about 5 years now and I have good things to say about Eneloops for the most part. I use them mainly for my speedlites (Canon 600RT, Canon EX580ii, YN600RT, YNE3RT and so on) but you can use them for anything that uses an AA battery. These are NiMH which means they do have a discharge over time so my advice is to use these in places where there is a larger power consumption and needs recharge more frequently like in my case an external flash. You would probably not want to use it at places like a regular wall clock.
They have always performed quite well over the years although they do tend to develop "memory" in which you would need to fully discharge them once in a while and then have them fully charge.
Over the years, I have gathered around 7 sets (each set = 4 batteries) of Eneloops. I usually use my Maha chargers to discharge and charge them. I recently got a EBL charger that I will be testing out to see how well it works.
The name in this Amazon listing claims "2100mAh" but yet the actual packaging states "2000mAh" and the battery itself claims "1900mAh." So quite honestly, I do not know which is the most accurate of the three. It could very well be a marketing move to lured potential buyers.
They seem to hold their charge very well but when you do notice that the batteries are not doing so, that would usually mean you would need to discharge them first.
My tips for managing these sets of batteries is to label each set accordingly so when I charge them, I usually keep them charging in the same charger. This is similar to the idea of rotating your tires on your car in which you wear them out equally rather than overworking any one specifically more than the others. When I put these in my flash, I know exactly which set to put in without mixing in a dead battery by mistake.

It's easy to spot the newest model purely because they are Panasonic branded
The cells are quoted as retaining up to 70% of their capacity for 5 years and are ready to use out of the box
I tested the pack I got and the capacities ranged from 2020-2078 mAh this can vary a bit but you're guaranteed a minimum of 1900 mAh. Unlike some other makers you can be sure you'll get the quoted capacity Despite the higher cost per battery the longevity of the Eneloop batteries has been very good I've had sets for a good while now (over 5 years) and they're still going strong where as some budget offerings have lost their capacity or worn out after a few years. I've also never had a problem with the Eneloop cells fitting, in the past a few makers have played around the standard AA size and some are a bit longer or larger in diameter this can cause problems on some devices fitting wise.
On the packaging Panasonic recommend using their own chargers, but I've never had a problem with a good quality third party smart/intelligent charger with any make of battery it's well worth investing in one of these as it can extend the life of cells and avoid overcharging problems that some timer/manual chargers have.
**A few chargers worth looking at**
Maha MH-C9000 (very advanced high end charger)
Technoline BL-700 or BC1000
The official Panasonic charger is: BQ CC16 this is an intelligent charger with individual monitoring and charging of cells, I don't recommend the basic BQ CC18 it works fine but it is timer control only.
A decent budget 8 cell intelligent charger is the KooPower 8 Bay smart charger (this seems to be available in a few brand names same design though)
Some of the top end chargers have multiple charging speeds and testing capabilities as well as discharge/re-fresh cycles. If you don't need these features then just go for a normal smart charger it's worth the small additional cost.
There are some cheaper batteries out there, and some decent budget offerings too. But despite the higher cost this seems to be levelled out with the lifespan of the batteries. Hard to fault really a very reliable and solid offering and suitable for use in a wide variety of appliances even heavy drain items like flashes and digital cameras. For super high capacity users take a look at the Eneloop Pro range
