      I counted 216. Wow! That is a lot of eneloops.

      This is a mixed feeling. I am simultaneously happy and sad that I don't have so many.

      Also, this makes me posting my collection redundant :(

      •  

        If you look close, the white packs aren't full. I typically store 6 (One has 7) in each so when my gaffer runs out of his Eneloop collection he can pop them into his pepper lights. He's only got about 60 to 80.

    My eneloops are all over the house in kids toys, safety fence (stuck forever as screw stripped),portable speakers, controllers. I've lost a few somewhere and have a little log book system when the batteries get checked out of their storage box. I also label in pairs so they always partner with the same one.

    Probably have about 50.

      "… so they always partner with the same one."

      Have any of your eneloops ever been … unfaithful?

        I bet there is the odd fatherless AAA running around somewhere?? :-)

      •  

        I've just checked my collection and a dark choc and a white choc have gone missing.
        I was unaware of this inter racial relationship. I don't think the other eneloops approved of it, and the pressure got to them and fled.

    i use enloops for my wireless g602, thats about it. only have a pack of 8 I got for $20 from dicksmith, they are all I need for now. purchasing more than you need is pointless unless of course you are a collector? :/

  • +1 vote

    PSA: Turnigy (Eneloop Rivals) are on a really good price atm.. not $2 for a pack (COTD) but for everyday prices they're great!

    Genuine question…..
    if they are so good, why do you need so many?
    Would assume if they were so fantastic that you should be able to get along with having far less of them.

    •  

      2-3 packs is usually enough for an entire household :|
      Those with speedlites (for a DSLR camera) require 4xAAs per unit.
      Remote control cars might use 4-8 AAs
      Portable Radio
      Remote controls - Typically 2 AA/AAAs
      Flashlights can use 4 AA/AAAs

      • +2 votes

        Yup. I have lots of kids toys requiring 2-4 AA's. I'd say about 75% of my AA's have gone to kids toys, the rest go to flashlights, other portable devices etc.

        who is he

        It could be a she

        •  

          I don't think there is any female who is collecting eneloop, because I got complines why I bought this much of batteries.

          Edit;
          Oh forgot, may they buy them for the other kind of toys… To enjoy more ;)

  • +1 vote

    I can't believe EC still has that many still BNIB (well actually, not really surprised).
    Mine are mostly in use in my Cree torch collection + Lego NXT + various kids toys.
    Plus I don't have that many actual Eneloops, I've a lot more Imedions.

        Haha thanks.

        Started out as white eneloops for remotes etc. Then the glitters and every year there was something new. My partner loves the Disneys. She just wanted everything that got released. So I just have to keep buying whenever there is something new.

    So I'm guessing I wouldn't be in the running to win this competition if I arranged my Eneloops to make the words "Damn you Dick, where are my glitterloops. You cancelled my order!".

    Ended up buying the chocolat instead which was a crappy compromise. Disappointed my 4 year old daughter who I'd told I was getting shiny pink batteries just for her.

    I have some sitting in a draw but I take them right out of the packet and most are in various devices or in my camera backpack.

    http://budgetlightforum.com/node/18949

    There are also two levels of quality when it comes to Eneloops.
    Japanese and Chinese made.
    The Japanese is distinguished with packaging that mentions coming pre-charged using solar energy.
    The Chinese doesn't and are not as stringent quality control wise in independent testing.

    I'm probably not going to win on creativity unfortunately - maybe if it was a competition based on sheer numbers though I might:

    I was thinking about spelling out "Not Enough Eneloops" using individual cells, but I didn't have room on the floor…

    I've got about 150 AA Eneloops and 40 AAA Eneloops out of their packets - some of them shown in the photo - I wasn't going to go spending hours pulling the rest out of various toys, etc. All up, I've got over 300 AA Eneloops and over 50 AAA Eneloops.

    I'm not addicted - honest!

    This is my entry for the ‘ENELOOP pic’ comp:

    http://www.anony.ws/i/2014/11/07/Zains_Wall_of_Sound_and_Lig...

    The only actual ENELOOPs in the pic are the ones the little tacker is holding, because all the rest are screwed into the “Wall of Sound and Light” (and the moving/talking bear, frog, LED-light-breathing-dragon, utility vehicles) you see in the pic. He loves that wall, it actually makes him laugh and squeal with delight… maybe he will be a DJ when he grows up!?! The stuff in the pic requires > 60 ENELOOPs, and we also have one of those big round ‘activity station’ thingies that he can sit/stand/bounce in, and that thing alone requires another 20 or so, to power-up its various gadgets. All this seems extravagant I know, but the fact is all of this stuff was either gifted/passed-down to us by very kind friends/relatives, or acquired from op-shops for almost nix.

    Those above asking why anyone would ever need more than a pack or two of ENELOOPs, have clearly not experienced the joys of parenthood… or they chose to steer clear of battery-operated toys for their kids (which is fair enough, of course). Anyways, if your kids do end up with some battery-operated toys, ENELOOPs (or some other slow-draining rechargeable) are really the only way to go; so that you can have some charged-up batteries on stand-by that are actually going to work as soon as they’re needed, i.e. without needing to be recharged. When the ‘littlest man’ in the house cries because his dragon has stopped roaring and breathing LED light, he doesn't seem to understand when I tell him he’ll just have to wait a few hours for some batteries to charge up…

    I also have a few ‘toys’ of my own that collectively require a lot of batteries; 2 Wii remotes, 2 wireless PC controllers, ‘a couple’ (ahem) of cameras, ‘a couple’ (ahem) of torches, various RC vehicles (2 cars, 2 helicopters and a submarine), some tools (stud-finder, volt-meter, label-maker etc.) and numerous other cheap/novelty gadgets (mini-sonicator, vibrating hand-held razor, clocks, weather-station, bathroom-radio etc.).

    So owning something approaching a couple of hundred ENELOOPS seems perfectly normal to me. Almost none of mine remain in packets for long though; they’re in use! Thus I could not post an artistic pic of lots of unopened packs… But I love some of the pics others have posted of the packs; my personal favourite is the pic posted by ‘bcraze’, showing the variety of types that have been sold over time.

    LOOP ON, DUDES…
