    the best option for a AAA charger?? any recommendations?

  •  

    ooo, I just noticed they're made by Panasonic now. Did they buyout Sanyo?

    •  

      "Following the discontinuation of the Sanyo brand in 2013, the Eneloop brand was changed to Panasonic Eneloop."

    •  

      Yep, bought em out but still used the Sanyo name for a while, now I don't think anything is labelled with Sanyo.

    •  

      On 21 December 2009 Panasonic completed a 400 billion yen ($4.5 billion) acquisition of a 50.2% stake in Sanyo, making Sanyo a subsidiary of Panasonic. In July 2010, Panasonic announced that they would acquire the remaining shares of Sanyo.

      Yup, and production is shifting to China so buy em now while they are still Japanese made.

      • +3 votes

        Too late, these Panasonic branded units are all made in China. Both the batteries and the charger.

        •  

          Masters still have the Sanyo branded ones… and it's only $20 for the AAs, but with & 'Quick Charger'!

        • +1 vote

          And the Quick Charger from Masters is the better charger out of the two deals. Not just because it charges quicker but because its smarter with the charging, so less likely to fry your nice eneloops.

          Yeah, just got mine, they are Made in China.

          I'm surprised someone got so many +s for an incorrect statement.

          Good work anyway.

        •  

          @josephchi:
          These are the very first Chinese ones I have heard about actually here. They got here faster than I expected!
          Production date = June 2014.
          Still plenty of Japanese stock at most other shops. Buy 'em now while you can.

          Who made the incorrect statement?

        •  

          @Snoop:

          I think he is referring to my suggesting people by up this deal based on them being the last of the Japanese ones. Fair enough. I was wrong. Dick Smith surprised me with the first of the Chinese ones here. Manufacturered only six weeks ago!

        •  

          @King Tightarse:
          Actually, just saw the comment above about shifting production.
          Either way, the votes were obviously based on the price being 1/2 the price of normal, and we are yet to confirm that these are inferior in any way!!!

    you guys love eneloops on here. but… serious question… what do you people use batteries in nowadays? 95% of the electronic stuff i own is rechargeable.

      Point and shoot Cameras (kids), Mouse and Keyboard of iMac, TV/DVD/STB etc remote controls, Torch, etc.

      There's heaps of stuff that still use AA/AAA batteries.

      • +2 votes

        Hardly worth it for remotes, and debatable for mice. I just use the leftovers after using up the ones they give away with new equipment. Cameras, torches, ok.

        • +8 votes

          ^this.
          i find all the stuff that takes normal batteries now lasts for aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages without a needing a replacement. i have a wireless mouse and it lasts me over a year with one aa battery. my remotes lasts even longer as long as you get a heavy duty one.

          granted i don't use a camera much (btw are they not rechargeable yet? do they still take batteries? serious question, i havent owned a camera for years)

          and i don't do enough detective work to warrant having a ready supply of recharged batteries for a torch, and even if i did most torches are LED now which last aaaaaaaaaaaages on one or two batteries.

          so… in my personal experience these things aren't worth the money. a battery runs out and i buy some new ones without the need to buy a seperate charger. and the replacement battery will last me another year or so. if it was still the 1990s and i needed a supply of 4xAAs to power my original game boy i could see the use, but if i got some of these and a charger it would take me about a decade or more to start getting my moneys worth.

          i don't even know why i wrote all this, just seems odd to me, and hopefully someone getting in on the eneloop hype reads it and reconsiders their "investment"

          People aren't going to buy these if they don't have a use for them.
          Oh wait, this is Ozbargain & Eneloops.

          I rely on them a fair bit. My wireless keyboard and mouse go through about 4AA every 6 weeks or so. The lights on my push bike go through about 6 AAA every few months. Dictaphone 2 AAA every few months. Everyone has different needs.

        • +3 votes

          @didsburydan: The majority of mine are in console controllers although I also put them in remotes and mice as well. In particular battery powered things in my travel bag that I don't use often ,but the low discharge means that when I do they are still charged.

          They're also good in adult toys…those suckers eat batteries for breakfast.

        •  

          @didsburydan: True, not to mention the cost of electricity to recharge these things all the time. Better off buying a heap of those Bunnings batteries.

        •  

          It's worth it if you don't want to deal with the proper disposal of old batteries. It's irresponsible to just throw away old batteries into the bin.

      Most Mac accessories use these batteries. My all office mates heavily rely on these AA rechargeable batteries for almost everything everyday.

      Nikon sb700 speedlight (4xAA)
      logitec harmony (2xAA)

      The first two in particular wouldn't last long on regular alkalines

        You're right mate. Especially for flash. I use SB400, 2 in the flash, 2 for spares. You probably need 4 more for spares

      Those $3 torches aren't gonna run themselves, and they burn through AA batteries like crazy if you use them a lot. Also, Eneloops are "Low Self Discharge" (LSD) meaning that they hold their charge for months (years even?) so I can have a $3 torch in my car, my wife's car, the kitchen, laundry, garage etc and not have to worry about the batteries that are in them being flat when I need to use them.

      Eneloops and LED torches are a synergistic self-sustaining ozbargain obsession! How do I know?

      Tons of things… Wireless keyboards, mice, wireless gamepads (F710, wii), torches, remotes, photography equipment (intervalometer, flash triggers, flashes), calculator (my Casio graphic one uses AAA), some of my audio equipment like the Zoom H4N uses batteries)… That's just some of the things I use them in…

    i only want battery. any good deal?

  •  

    The fact that these are Panasonic branded and there's no indication of where they were made is enough to put me off the deal! Australia is one of the regions that was supposedly going to be supplied with Chinese made 'eneloops'…

    •  

      You are right man. These are Panasonic branded and not Sanyo. Capacity retention in Sanyo is 70% compare to 65% with Panasonic.

      Does that mean Panasonic is probably lower end of Eneloop?

    •  

      can anyone confirm the country of manufacture of these strange eneloops.

      i've got a couple of unopened sanyo eneloop AAA here, and they are made in japan with 70% retention and 1800 charges (this panasonic one is 65% retention and 2100 charges).

      dearly hoping that we are still able to buy japanese made eneloops.

      •  

        Could be a sacrifice to increase charge cycles, and not necessarily lower quality. The second gen Eneloops had 75% retention and 1500 cycles.
