Yes I know its DSE, but it's cheap for genuine Eneloop Batteries and average charger.
Shipping for me to Melbourne was $4.95.
Stack it with MoneyBackCo + Wish gift cards for even better value.
Yep, saw this day coming…this is going to cause many minds to explode.
…this is going to cause many minds to explode
Just as long as it's not the batteries………..
$4.95 metro ship
version 1 batteries though?
Version 1 were 1000 cycles weren't they? These are 1500.. Not sure though so don't quote me.
DSE = neg from me, but cheap sanyo eneloop = + so I'm been pulled apart by conflicting forces :)
Really the opposites should attract, or maybe you're crushed in the middle?
I think you and everyone else who talk down on DSE need to grow up.
Just because they had a sale that was never meant to make it public and as a result disappointed the public who believed it was for them doesn't mean you need to verbally bash them.
Just grow up and concern yourself with more important matters
'Yes I know its DSE' lol it has become COTD
Hmm, pity no Click and Collect.
Yep…deal breaker for me.
Jumble jumble has these all the time for $22 shipped.
A $2 saving does not warrant an impulse buy sadly.
My experience with Jumble jumble was terrible: didn't receive anything a few weeks since I placed my order. My emails of requesting order update/cancellation/refund were ignored, had to ask PayPal to help me to get my money back.
Edit: I mean Jungle Jumble, are we talking about same seller? ;)
You are comparing different batteries. 1000 cycles JJ verses newer 1500 cycles DSE. DSE prices is worth more than the $2 saving IMO given these are better batteries.
Not the glitter ones :(
WE DEMAND TO HAVE THE GLITTER ONES RETURNED! :)
Same here, i need about 8 packs of those, my kids keep getting given bloody toys with batteries required ARGHHHH. come on DSE cough up some cheap Glitters again
This is not the glitters one but still cheap; http://dicksmith.com.au/product/S4414WEBB/eneloop-4aa-ready-...
Good one Kale!
There you go… 8 Eneloops for S19.99
Ahh Damn. Kale's link comes to about $26 delivered. Didn't buy it last time when it was $20 delivered (didn't need it, now I do!). Hope it comes back!
Really no biggie with shipping plus its the poxie dumb charger, its the same as just about any other timed charger you may have in your drawer already.
I hope a deal comes along with the fast "smart" charger one of these days.
Original glitter deal was an 8 pack for $20 w/ free delivery.
why it's a "dumb" one?
It timer-based charger, when you put a battery in it charges for 6hrs or so and then stops, regardless of the state of the battery. This can cause the batteries charge capacity to deteriorate quicker than expected and reduce its life expectancy.
Smart ones are the opposite and checks the status of the battery and charges accordingly.
so what would be the best value smart charger on the market?
I have a Maxell MC-4MHB, is this a Smart one?
it's said to be a SANYO OEM charger
About $41 delivered now: http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/65596
Not too sure about the maxell, all the results i get are in jap!
Too bad it's not in-store as some of the closing ones are offering 20% off all batteries.
I'm still waiting on mine from JungleJumble that were ordered on the 25th of March. So this is probably a considerably better deal.
Dunno why anyone would need 1500 charge models in preference to 1000 charge. I will need to reach about 500 years old to wear out my 1000 charge models. That is, if they ever arrive.
This might be abit late but, does DSE get first dibs on the batteries?
You really need to grow up mate
just ordered these now for my camera flash. thanks :D
How long would these batteries last in an Xbox 360 controller?
Depends on the usage and how many cycles the batteries have been through.
With brand-new Eneloops I get around 4-6 days of usage in my G700 gaming mouse; though unlike your controller it has customisable profiles (gaming and power-saving when you're not gaming).
After say 6-8 months of charge/deplete cycles, my Eneloops will only last for around 3 days (with heavy gaming usage as little as 2).
I'd wager it's going to be similar for your controller.
Either way, if you have 4 Eneloops it's pretty easy to keep some in reserve, fully-charged, that way you're never caught short (unless you happen to be in the middle of a Conquest round of BF3).
Thanks for the info :)
Hmmmm me needs the longest lasting AAA batteries and charger :S Are the eneloops the best, and is it worth getting this deal for the charger for my AAA's (when i find the right ones)?
"Longest lasting" is a pretty vague descriptor since different batteries are designed with different applications in mind.
If you need them for a torch, PC/Gaming/Home Theatre peripherals, kid's toys, electric razors, clocks or other everyday appliances Eneloops are the go-to battery for all those uses.
With cameras you're probably better off with some 2500mAh NiMH batteries.
Wouldn't bother with this slow charger. Much better off getting a decent smart charger like the Maha 9000 or similar.
I have an old hobby charger (Turnigy Accurel 6 whatever). Is it consider as a smart charger (better/faster then these ones)?
I heard the charger isn't that good because it's 'dumb'? Anyone recommend a charger?
Maha Powerex MH-C9000. Expensive but you'll never buy another one again (for AA/AAA batteries that is).
I no longer buy these 10 hours, 18 hours charging time batteries and chargers anymore.
Very often, when I need a battery (charged), I need it fast. I have many Varta 15 min chargers and batteries.
Do you guys know how many mAH this batteries are?
