    How fabulous!

  •  

    FREAKING AWESOME! I'd use moneybackco, but its blocked at work. If I wait to buy it at home to get my 3% cashback, this deal will have been ozbargained

  •  

    Thanks for the post. Great price!!!
    Great batteries, those who have not used Eneloops before and are tired with the Alkaline or even the other popular brand rechargeables. Give this a try, it is a great piece of work by Sanyo. I hope they maintained the same standards as their other eneloops on these too. Have just ordered a pack!

  •  

    Are these the same as http://junglejumble.com.au/sanyo-eneloop-8x-aa-nimh-recharga... that I paid $30 for a few weeks ago? If so this is a great deal. I'm tempted to buy some more, but I'm wondering just how many rechargeable AAs I actually need, I seem to keep buying them :)

  •  

    I have these they work the same, I bought them for $30 though (still a good price). Might get another pack to have matching pairs of each colour! If you have a xbox 360 you can never have too many eneloops, also I think they are the same as the apple rechargeable batteries.

    •  

      No, the apples are the same as the eneloop. These batteries were awesome before apple came onboard with it. I must say though, the apple ones also look fantastic.

      •  

        pedantic much? :P I know the eneloops came out before, I thought some people with apple keyboards and stuff might not know they can use these in the same charger etc…

        •  

          I thought some people with apple keyboards and stuff might not know they can use these in the same charger etc…

          You can use any AA battery recharger to recharge any AA battery.

          You do not need to use an Apple or Eneloop charger to charge these batteries

          why does even a tiny mention of apple in every thread cause a fanboy war?

        @Cheng Probably because they're such hard@sses. They make more profit than any other electronics company by overcharging and still feel the need to sue companies over vague patents aka patent trolling.

    Eneloop is the greatest rechargeable battery I hv even seen!!!

  •  

    Is it best to have an eneloop charger to go with them?

    Or will my varta LCD charger (http://dicksmith.com.au/product/S4452/varta-lcd-charger-with...) work just fine?

    • +4 votes

      According to this.

      http://www.eneloop.info/products/chargers.html
      """
      In respect of charging, eneloop batteries can be treated like normal NiMH batteries. This means they can be charged with any modern charger, which is suitable for NiMH batteries.
      """

      I think that means yes to your "Can I use varta charger" question?

      •  

        The difference between an Eneloop charger and a standard NiMH charger is that an Eneloop charger will shut off when it is done charging, a standard NiMH charger will continue to supply a small (trickle) voltage to keep it charged to 100%.

        Eneloops are well known for their ability to retain their full charge so the trickle charge is absolutely unnecessary, and will most likely cause unwanted wear on the batteries.

        Although realistically it's not something that will come back to haunt you.

      Battery geeks would likely say the Eneloop-branded chargers are among least healthy for the batteries anyway, since they're "dumb" timer chargers.

  •  

    do you need to use the enloop charger for these or can i use the Energizer 1 that i have ?

    •  

      They can be recharged in any NiMH charger. Sanyo "recommends" Enerloop chargers however the battery is pre charged and doesnt loose charge for months. This is hardly anything to do with the brand of charger used.

    •  

      Is you energizer charger come with NiMH battery? check the battery
      If so, then no problem at all

  •  

    My brother told me Eneloops should be charged very slowly- is he right? I haven't got a very slow charger, so would have to buy one just for the purpose of charging Eneloops.

    •  

      depends on wt charger you are using
      edit:oops
      charger slowly can maintain battery life

      copy from eneloop website'The slow charging by using a low charge-current ensures a long cycle life of the eneloop batteries. '

    •  

      nope they can be charged at 500mah or if you like risks 1000mah if you like to treat your batteries with respect then charge at 200mah (eneloops hold around 2000mah)

      •  

        For best results, eneloops should be charged over 2 hours (1/2 capacity as mah, i.e. 1000 for AA and 400 for AAA). The AA eneloops are ok with a 2000mah charge, but it will likely decrease their life expectancy.

      All rechargeables are happier with a slow charge.

      Better quality chargers (smart chargers) will monitor how fast a charge the battery is capable of receiving during the recharge cycle - they start fast and finish slow so as not to stress the battery.

      Cheaper chargers don't… in which case, the slower the better.

      It would be a pity to ruin Eneloops by blasting them with a fast dumb charge. It would work a few times…

    Are the AAA ones on special ne where?

  •  

    just went and bought some. thanks for the heads up! cheaper than ebay! fyi when i tried to buy more than one set the shopping cart showed only 1, but when i went to checkout via paypal it showed all the other times i'd try to buy more than one. i figure at this price, why fight it right? wicked laugh

    Who wrote the description on the dse site? forgot to use grammer and spell checks

    The batteries are having a nominal voltage of 1,2V and a rating capacity of2000 mAh.

  •  

    Blow me down- the answer to my question appeared as I was writing question. They do say, however, that an overnight charge will extend use.

  •  

    I was planning on charging these with a Varta 15 minute charger. Not a good idea?

    •  

      you'll probably kill the battery faster.

      •  

        Meh, I have 16 of these bad boys now, plus a whole heap of Varta pre-charged and various other Nimh batteries. I'll happily sacrifice some lifespan for 15 minute charges :)

    •  

      I charged the 'Varta' ready-to-use LSD batteries with a 15 minute Varta charger and thought there was no problem. That is until I tried charging them in a standard charger to be told the batteries are faulty. When I tested them with a Powerex MH-C9000 charger , battery capacity was calculated around 150mah (battery rated at 800)..

      So yes, you can charge them but you'll end up ruining them and will have to use the 15 minute charger to properly charge them for the rest of their lives.

    I am after a CHARGER and Eneloop Batteries too :

    I found DSE have couple of combo pack available for :

    Standard Charger with 4 x AA Ready To Use Eneloop Batteries — $29.99
    http://dicksmith.com.au/product/S4403/standard-charger-with-...

    Eneloop Quick Charger with 4x AA Nimh Batteries — $39.99

    http://dicksmith.com.au/product/S4462/eneloop-quick-charger-with-4x-aa-nimh-batteries

    Since I also need a Charger…I think I should choose one of these combo pack?
    Can I get the Charger with the above "Eneloop Rechargeable Glitter (8x AA Batteries) - $19.99 Delivered " deal ?

    •  

      Yes, matter fact any charger would be fine.

    •  

      Only thing is that the standard charger is very slow. I think from what was written on the packaging it says about 17-18 hours to recharge a set of batteries.

      Just switched over a few of my devices to Eneloop batteries and very happy. Don't have to recharge my batteries every few weeks or find that if I haven't used the remote for a week or so that the batteries are not flat.

      •  

        Which is fine given how long they'll last in high-drain casual use applications. :P (I bought a set 3 months ago and put 2x AA in my 360 controller, I pick it up and use it about 3-4 times a week, and it's still on 'full charge')

    •  

      Both those are dumb chargers, and not really cheap. They do not detect when the calls are full, and you should charge in pairs or sets of 4 that were used together.

      The faster one has only a timer, which does not protect if you try to charge cells that were half-full to start with.
      The slow one is safer, but slow :)

      This one looks better, but still only charges in pairs. Not good if you have gadgets with 3 cells.

    Tossing up whether to buy 1 or 2 packs, i dont need more than 8 batteries, but i prefer to have 2 of every colour for the sake of coordinating. and i guess its not a bad thing to have more than you need. $40 for 16 batteries is pretty good.

    What are you guys doing?

    •  

      I just bought 3 packs! But then again i have a lot of toys that take AA batteries. Sweeet deal. Next is to buy the MAHA C9000 charger to keep them in peak condition.

    I totally don't need these, yet the only reason I'm not buying them is I have no money: the only cure for ozbarganitise

    If there are any DSE reps on here can you have a similar deal on the AAA eneloops?

    • +1 vote

      AAA eneloop deal would be awesome!

      •  

        My default rechargeable batteries are Gsyuasa Enitime, which can be had from DealExtreme:
        http://www.dealextreme.com/p/gsyuasa-enitime-pre-charged-750...

        Gsyuasa is a serious reputable battery manufacturer, and the Enitime is generally considered to be equivalent to an Eneloop. Unlike some of the stuff at DX, they're genuine… I've been very happy with the ones I've got. And it's hard to go past $8 delivered for 4x AAA.

        They're especially good for flashy LED bike lights. Normal NiMH cells drain themselves in a few weeks even if you don't use them. Enitimes (and Eneloops and Varta pre-charged) hold a charge for upward of a year.

    If you are sick of buying crappy chargers just by a "la crosse" charger and it will be the last charger you will ever need to buy.

    •  

      great read, anyone know any good chargers with the proper charging methods?

      •  

        La Crosse or Powerex chargers are the only charger you will ever need to buy. Check out Amazon for a good selection. The ability to count milliamp hours means you can weed out batteries that are dying and pair batteries up with other ones with the same capacity.

        The article actually says that the MQR06 and MDU01 are good chargers.

    •  

      Yep, as mentioned, the chargers that ship with all the Eneloop bundles are crap…. If you use a lot of batteries, it's worth buying a decent charger.

  •  

    thanks, ordered

    Awesome! Thanks for the heads up as I was buying some this week for my new flash.

    Great bargain op. Best price I've seen on eneloop batteries from a reputable local source period.

  •  

    Do DSLRs primarily use these types of batteries or do they come with their own rechargeable battery pack? (Thinking of buying a camera)

    •  

      depends on the maker/model

      •  

        Fair enough. So what do the people who are buying these batteries use them for? Apart from my Wiimotes, all my tech have rechargeable batteries.

        •  

          eneloops last longer than other rechargeable batteries usually

          For example, my 360 controller rechargeable batteries only last 2 years and the capacity drops by 50% or so whereas these last much longer. And you can use them in wireless mice, keyboards, remotes, controllers and things that you wanna replace the battery right away I guess.

          Pentax entry level DSLRs K-X and K-R (premium entry level) have adaptors for AA batteries.

        •  

          Cheers for that. Ordered a pack. Now to find a charger.

    •  

      DSLR's will generally always use a Li-on rechargeable battery pack, the biggest use of these rechargeable batteries in terms of the photography industry is for the external flash units.

      Rather than going through countless numbers of alkaline ones, it's a hell of a lot better knowing you've got rechargeable ones to save on cash.

      I use eneloops in my 580ex II, and they're great really, so I didn't hesitate to pick this deal up.

    •  

      DSLRs generally don't use these, but alot of external flashes do. I'm getting a battery grip for my D700 which takes 8 AAs. Now to get a decent 8 cell charger.

  • +2 votes

    You can never have too many Eneloops. I already have 12.

    Never need to buy alkaline batteries ever again!

    • +1 vote

      only 12? You need more toys ;)

      I have about 200 and I just bought 40 more.

      I also bought 2 of the MAHA MH-C9000 chargers and they are fantastic. I thought I would need two, but the second one is still NIB, as one does everything I need.

      • If anyone in Perth needs a MAHA MH-C9000, let me know I can probably be convinced to sell the untouched one for $60.
  •  

    Thanks Kirt… just ordered a set. Best price i've seen for Eneloops.
    We uses them in our cameras and they are simply brilliant!

  •  

    This is a gr8 deal I've been looking for a new set of AA batteries now I have 8 coloured ones :-)

  •  

    Thanks OP, just bought a pack.
