    Made In Japan so very good quality.

      Negged for pointing out a relevant fact. Pathetic behaviour.

      Yes, Panasonic has moved the production of Eneloops back to Japan within the last 3 years and yes, Japanese-manufactured Eneloops deliver the actual rated current consistently, have better capacity retention over time and longer lifecycles than Chinese-manufactured Eneloops. This has been proven multiple times.

        Bro, why so angry?

        Not everyone is an Eneloop scientist or across the Eneloop Daily News.

          I think perhaps Amar89 worded that first sentence a bit funny and was actually pointing out that someone had negged dreamscene for pointing out that relevant fact? Or he could be a jerk, I dunno 🤷🏽‍♂️

          Well this certainly became an unexpected lightning rod of OzBargain controversy.

          It seems my comment became a self-fulfilling prophecy; getting negged for pointing out someone else was getting negged, who pointed out that Japanese Eneloops trump Chinese Eneloops.

          I would have thought it was abundantly clear that my remark about "pathetic behaviour" wasn't referring to me objecting to someone negging my own comment (since putting that reference at the start of my post would make zero sense), especially seeing as I replied to dreamscene's comment well after he posted it.

          Somehow, a lot of people assumed that what I did was basically "back up" dreamscene's argument with some more wordy elaboration and then stuck around to watch if anyone negged me or him again (like some OzBargain white knight), after which I made an edit to leave a snarky remark about said people negging me.

          OzBargain Logic = Bulletproof.

          Next time, I'll draw a full-blown MS Paint diagram with annotations and flowcharts to help everyone understand the nuance and intention behind my post.

    This may be a silly question, but, how do people charge these? Is there a recommended charger?

    •  

      The bottom two links in the OP's top paragraph have chargers listed.

      I think most AA battery chargers would do the trick, but may need to qualify that in case there's different specs for eneloops.

        nope,,they are just ni-mh batteries in regards to chargers.

        Difference between D4 and UM4?

        • +2 votes

          D4 runs off mains supply, UM4 is powered via micro USB and is also a newer design.

          UM4 might be better for travel, but will likely be slower at charging a full complement of batteries (i.e. all four bays loaded) due to power limitations of USB. One thing the UM4 does that the D4 does not (as best I can tell) is rate battery health, albeit only as either "Good" or "Poor"

          I've owned a D4 charger for something like 3 years and have been very happy with it.

          Here's a handy review of the UM4.

        That sounds about right - the prices on the Costco site are higher than in store. I suppose that's how they offer "free" delivery.

    are pros worth the extra dosh?

    •  

      Also keen to know.

    •  

      Pros are good for high draw uses. Flashes, remote control cars etc.

    •  

      Also just read that they have less charging cycles than the standards. So for high drain, slightly higher capacity, heavier usage it is suitable. Think flashes etc.

    Panasonic Eneloop AA 2000mAh - 4 Pack Batteries Pre-Charged(camerahouse.com.au) $16.79

      These are made in the same factory as Eneloops but cheaper and more mah.

      • +2 votes

        more mah

        Ha! I like this.

    • +2 votes

      Yeah but ikea doesn't do delivery on batteries and even if so they charge a fee. Isolation means staying home is safer. The original Japanese ones from 2013 by Sanyo still better than both Ladda and Panasonic. Too bad they are gone now

      There were talks before Ladda ones are just like Eneloop pros but can't recall if there was any evidence, maybe they are just regular with higher mah

    •  

      also i find Ikea ones aren't as good… they say ready to use, but they're always flat out of the box. They don't seem to be as LSD as i'd expect from a non-pro eneloop - if i leave them charged in the cupboard for a month or two they are fairly flat again. Dunno if it's just the pro thing, that they discharge quicker or what, but they certainly don't replace regular eneloop for me.

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/509265
    Can someone please help suggesting the right rechargable battery?

    •  

      On their Toysrus website it says
      Notes & Tips:
      "Operating this vehicle requires the separate purchase of five AA batteries."

      •  

        yes, but they dont say which ones. I tried normal 1.5v ones which works. But cant find any rechargable ones

        •  

          Related to this comment ^ can anyone confirm voltage on Panasonic Eneloop Pro's? Ladda say 1.2v, disposable are 1.5v, and Panasonic don't state voltage anywhere. Am I correct or mistaken that lower voltage will mean lower performance (i.e. engine speed in a toy; not battery life/mAh)?

          • +2 votes

            @TheLurker: Rechargeables are always 1.2V. It doesn't mean lower performance however some toys don't tolerate lower voltage so they can't use rechargeable batteries.

            •  

              @tukanglistrik: Sorry, would you know if a 2550mAh eneloop pro would work where the ikea 2450mAh has failed?

              •  

                @bestdealsonly: Unlikely, the mah number is the battery's capacity. I guess you need to use standard non-rechargeable batteries.

  • +4 votes

    There was once a time but I've moved onto Ladda now.

    • +2 votes

      Yep. More mah and cheaper. Made in same factory anyway. Basicly same.

    •  

      Are you experiencing the same discharge issue mentioned in Whirlpool?

      Their comment was:

      I have only done 6 month self discharge tests on the batches, but all report around 65-70% of their capacity after 6 months. Eneloop Pros by comparison retain about 85% in 12 months.

      • +2 votes

        I haven't done any specific tests but for the past two years I've been running Ladda in my Xbox controllers and a pair of eneloops from 5 years ago.

        Can definitely see the wear on the Eneloops, I get about 2 - 3 days on them while I can get about 5 on Ladda. However for 5 years worth of usage, they are worth the money. In comparison all the Duracell and Energizer rechargeables I've bought are all dead or on their last legs. I've put them in clock's and mouse and keyboards. I am amazed those companies sign off on such horrid quality batteries seeing as how they are solely battery companies.

        Personally I can't feel too much of a difference between when the Ladda were new to 2 years later, I'm sure there is a reduction in capacity but not too significant. At least none that I can discern.

        I'm really ocd and I've slowly starting replacing all my batteries with Ladda. The time of Eneloops has come to an end.

    After a lot of searching, the Tile 4 pack they are offering is the TI-RT-05004 model which does NOT have a replaceable battery. They last about a year. Not worth it in my opinion.

    Best advice for anyone buying into rechargeable batteries is to buy a smart charger, for example I have the La Crosse Technology BC700-CBP and all my enloops from 2013 are still charging well.

      Not too good to be true, but not as good as the eneloop pro's in power hungry toys.
