    Humble bragging against the Ozbargain grain to say I don't own any eneloops, instead choosing these laddas for everything I need batteries for. They have been great, amazing performance for the price.

  • +3 votes

    Could you use an eneloop charger to charge them? All my eneloops have gone missing :(

  •  

    Does it say on the packet where they are made?

    • +7 votes

      Yes and it's also printed on the battery itself "Made in Japan" :)

    •  

      I bought these a couple of months ago. Made in Japan.

      I bought the eneloop charger (with included 4 x AA batteries) from bing Lee 50% off last month. They were made in China.

      •  

        That's pretty alright that they are still using old Eneloops at this price.
        Otherwise they might be just from W factory in Japan. I don't think Sanyo ever actually made Eneloops? It was some Japanese battery company I thought.

  •  

    There are brown Ladda that made in China. Avoid those one.

    •  

      There's white ones made in China as well nowadays.

        They're living back in the 1980's when China churned out low quality crud. Nowadays they're more advanced than the USA and Made in China is not a badge of low quality.

          NiMH cells from China are inferior to the Japanese cells made by FDK (which I believe is the only manufacturer of LSD NiMH cells in Japan).

        • +6 votes

          when China churned out low quality crud.

          They still do for the majority of products. However, while I see your point and they certainly do manufacture good quality goods too, in this specific case, tests have been made to show the Chinese-made Ladda batteries are significantly inferior to the specs of the Japanese 'eneloop' ones. Hence the comment which is correct. Pick up the made in Japan ones if they're available.

        •  

          Pretty sure that was a 'brown is bad' racism joke.

    • +2 votes

      The brown Ladda I have are made in Japan.

      OP, perhaps modify your comment in the post to say check on the batteries where they were made if one prefers made in Japan vs China. The colour doesn't appear to be a reliable indicator and current statement may lead people to make misinformed purchase decision.

      •  

        Thanks for the heads up, I have changed the post to a disclosure about checking the country of origin before purchasing.

    •  

      Can confirm at Ikea Tempe the brown Ladda are made in China.

    Great thanks, can someone recommend a good cheap charger? I don't understand the difference between them. Thanks

    I don't know what to do with all my rechargeable batteries anymore… Only thing in our house that's using AA/AAA batteries is the TV remotes… Why do I keep buying batteries?!

    Recycled deal.

  •  

    How is this a bargain?

    Summary
    Order value:
    $7.99
    Service fee:
    $9.00

    incl. GST
    $16.99

    Total to Pay
    $16.99

    All they have to do is sell 111 of these a week and somebody makes $1000.00 in postage!

    •  

      The service fee covers preparing and/or shipping your order to your home or selected Store/Collection Point.

        Inflated. It doesn't cost $9 to process from ordering to pickup

        • +6 votes

          You haven't worked in delivery then.
          It takes more effort than most people realise

          • 0.5 minutes to process the order and do paperwork
          • 1.5 minutes to walk to the item
          • 1.5 minutes to walk back to the front of the store
          • 2 minutes to put it on the shelf in the right location and finish paperwork.
          • 3 minutes to process the pickup, find the item, verify your id listen to you complain about paying for something you can do yourself for free

          You're at 8.5 minutes

          Paying someone $23 an hour to do that costs $3.25.
          Ikea doesn't exist to recover costs, they need to make a profit.
          If they make 35% then you're paying $5 for the person's time.

          They also need shelves to store the pickup items and to dedicate part of the store for the pickup items and real estate is expensive.

          Your extra $4 goes towards that.

          • -5 votes

            @spaceflight: Nah they are already being paid to process/locate/ready/pass for pickup. Those at the counter act as more than just that.

            You are entitled to your opinion, so am I.

            Same principle with joining fees. Just to join something or another that you will still pay fees for (Gym etc..)

    Thanks bought 10 packs of AA's….my Turnigy's are annoying me. Not holding charge…some fall below re-charge value and aren't recognized by smart charger (I then have to manually charge them with RC gear to reach smart charger detectable level). I've had them for a few years….maybe they're just getting on.

    Looking forward to these thanks OP.

    •  

      Really? I thought Turnigy were meant to be decent too. I picked up quite a few AAAs during a deal so hopefully they aren't consistently like that. (Haven't used them enough yet to know)

      •  

        I agree with the above comment that Turnigy ones are not that good.

        I bought a dozen or so a few years ago to check them out. After a few cycles (so maybe 12-18 months) they started to 'misbehave': after they supposedly finished charging , I pull them out and put them back in again, and they continued charging, as if they were only half charged initially. Eventually one of them even stopped charging.

        The charger is a La Crosse BC700, so not a no-name charger. I do this with Eneloops and they still says fully charged. Also they don't seem to last as long as Eneloops, even though they have higher rated capacity.

    $20 pickup cost and $9 Delivery for Multi Billion dolar Company ?? It doesnt Make sense , unless the master Franchisee Here is greedy like the banks . ( royal commission into Ikea ?? )

    Can anyone please suggest good AA rechargable battery with charge including delivery ? Thanks.

      Look for liitokala on ozb. They ship from China from the more reputable China sellers between two to three weeks. The 500 is the best model but lower models should be perfectly serviceable too

      •  

        +1 I've got the 500 and it's been great. Didn't come with the 1.2V adapter but I had one lying around.

    I got some of these late last year and found they held less than half the charge of energizer or Duracell rechargeables.

    • +3 votes

      How are you testing this?

      I bought 5-6 packs of the Ladda AA batteries a couple of months ago, and used the LiitoKala Engineer Lii-500 charger which has analyzing function, and it analysed the capacity of all 4 AA batteries to be more than 2450 mAh. I don't own any LSD Energizer or Duracell Rechargeable AA batteries, but I highly doubt that any of their batteries will have more than 2500mAh of capacities.

      • -5 votes

        Well, I have to say I noticed the same, even the Aldi batteries seem to hold charge better… At least my batch of them.

        I'm almost 100% certain these Ladda batteries are the ones that failed QC.

        A good example would be those companies that buy Snapdragon chips. You choose to pay for dodgy batch by a high % of failure and it can go down for less than $1 a chip, or you can pay more and get what is the so called "lower rate of failure batch".

        I'm sure Duracell pay for a slightly less durable version of the original Eneloops, but I guess they should still have higher standards than the Ladda brand. You can also tell because the number of charges it is rated at is higher. Those numbers are from the manufacturer; they wouldn't be able to quote anything higher because it might trip them up in a legal dispute, since the failure rate or recharge cycles is much lower. (hmmm. scrap that, wrong battery, amazonbasics - not sure about the duracell - might be deliberately rated lower so they don't get as many complaints or some non-compete clause?)

        But yes, I have noticed the Duracell batteries with the white top are better than the Ladda. (Could be the statistical distribution of the failure rates!)

        As you use the batteries longer, they will not hold charge as well. I have some old Eneloops, they don't hold much charge at all, and go flat within 1 month. Over 1000 discharge cycles.

    •  

      Let me guess, you bought the brown and not the white ikea ones.

      •  

        Nope, it is just a part of the statistical distribution of the failure rate.

        One probably got unlucky, the rest may be fine; but that's what happens when the sourcing agent buys these QC failed batches.

  •  

    Thanks OP. Got a bunch of AA , AAA packs and a charger which is also on sale for $15 ( ikea member price)

    Hey guys can I use the Energizer NIMH charger? TIA

    It'll be interesting to see if they will continue to be made in Japan. Recently they ended their grace period of uncertified batteries being allowed in Japan resulting in heaps of 100 yen sales.

      For someone who goes by "Clear", your post is anything but.
      Could you elaborate?

      •  

        A year ago Japan introduced legislation that all power banks, batteries etc must have PSE which is their version of certification for electronics.

        The grace period for that legislation ended last week and now all stores and manufacturers must be compliant. Just prior to the grace period ending a lot of stores were clearing all their unapproved devices for 100 yen.

        • +1 vote

          The only thing I can find is in regards to Lithium Ion batteries, not NiMH. I also highly doubt if it did apply to them, they would have an issue getting them certified.

          •  

            @Namesareapain: Exact quote from the ministry translated to English (badly)

            Mobile power that does not comply with Japanese PSE regulations will be banned from circulation

            NiMH probably wouldn't fall under that but considering Maxell power banks that do take AA batteries were included you never know.

  •  

    I have several of the ikea batteries. Have been good so far.

    The Aldi ones also seem decent for the price. edit: apparently they don't do the 2500mah any more? i have some from several years ago and they are still working well.

    •  

      Don't buy their 2100mAh ones. I bought a pack a couple of months ago, and they only hold 1500mAh. I used a LiitoKala Lii-500 and Zanflare C4 chargers to test them, and both reported the capacity to be roughly 1500mAh. This is effectively 40% less than the advertised capacity! In disgust, I brought them back to Aldi for a refund.

      •  

        I should how much they hold still. Just had a look at them and a have a few of the 2100s as well in there from early 2018 and some 2300mah from 2013.

        They are just being used in xbox controllers currently and they still last ages.
