    I have used eneloops for years and they are now the minimum standard I will accept in a rechargeable AA - they are great. Did not know they do glitter though….

      It's a 5th anniversary edition. Same specs, but just a little more… blinding. :)

        Thrymr, why were you up at like 5-6am and on the dick smith website?

          Which site do you change to when someone walks in on you?

          The better question is why was I still awake at 2-3 AM (in WA) and on the Dick Smith website? And you know what? I have no idea why, but it paid off and I'm really tired now!

  •  

    Ordered two packs :)

    It's nice seeing a deal in time for once.
    Also really speedy checkout when you are a member!

    Basically BOGO!

    Eneloops are one of the few rechargeable that work in (almost?) everything, including wireless mice.

  •  

    Great saving. Ordered

  •  

    Yeah! Lucky I got up early today. Got one too, cheers OP.

  •  

    Special charger needed?

    • +1 vote

      No, but the Eneloops charger (with 4 batteries) is occasionally on special.

      I believe it charges intelligently.
      The dick smith charger should be pretty good too.

    Purchased been hoping this would come up again

    Damm you for making me buy more…

    Couldn't help myself, I bought two. Thanks OP.

  •  

    Thanks! Missed out on last years deal.

  •  

    Just got a couple of packs, thanks OP

  •  

    For the charger, is it still worth getting the La Crosse BC-700? It's around $45 delivered from Amazon (a bit more exy than last year!)

    I came very close to buying some on ebay yesterday, so glad I didn't !

      Ebay is full of fake Eneloops. If you want genuine Eneloops you need to buy them from a reputable source.

  • +2 votes

    Thank you! I was actually going to go to Dick's today and buy a 4 pack AA for a new camera.

    I have the Eneloop charger and it is a dumb charger. If you overcharge your batteries it reduces their lifespan. I ditched it and bought a Maha C401FS intelligent charger. Gotta look after your Eneloops.

  •  

    Thanks OP, been looking for some decent rechargeables.

  •  

    Thanks OP ordered two packs of these :)

    oooh so glittery :)

  •  

    Awesome thanks OP - was waiting for this deal to come back! Cheers

  •  

    Damn. I tried to pay with Paypal, and DSE spat back an error. Paypal still thinks I've submitted an order of $19.99 though. :/
    Anyone had this happen to them before? How was it resolved?

    •  

      For me, it sorted itself… over time.

      • +1 vote

        Yeah support told me to call Paypal to cancel it and try CC.

        Whoop de doo, my cc got charged but DSE didn't see it.

        Called up again… "Oh it'll go back to your card in [several, I forget what he said] business days."

        So I tried to throw my money at an Australian retailer, but noooo neither payment option worked for me. FML.

  •  

    Nice! Just bought a couple of packs.

  •  

    Ordered during previous deal and they are going great, love it.

  •  

    Ordered 2 packs, Thanks!

  •  

    Missed out last time got one this time. Thanks OP!
    Also don't forget 3.5% cashback @MBC!
    Their website didn't work under Opera! (ie. can't change address)
    Now need to hunt for some AAA … please post if there is one.

  •  

    Strange. Dick Smith site ordering does not work with Opera or Firefox. I was able to put the order through using Internet Explorer.

    •  

      Yeah their site is not compatible with Opera others may confirm with firefox.

    Cool, great deal. Have been waiting for a deal like this for a while;-)

    Kids consume a lot of batteries, the eneloop is more environmental friendly and also helps save $.

      Kids consume a lot of batteries,

      I know batteries are full of energy and all but, really, you're meant to feed your kids /food/. Fruit, veg and meat and stuff.

      Seriously.

    •  

      over the lifetime of the rechargable you will save hundreds of dollars per battery compared to buying drycells.
      they may not last quite as long in the appliance but you have only bought it once (although it a bit more expensive).
      Rechargables are usually the only way to go.

  •  

    Thanks OP just ordered a pack.

  •  

    Thanks, grabbed some :)

    I haven't used rechargeables in ages - does it matter what kind of charger you use, will it change the lifespan or amount of charge held by the batteries? I use AA batteries in an old camera, and it literally eats batteries, I go through 2 AA per day of shooting, which is why I swapped back from rechargeable to standard duracell, as they seemed to last a bit longer.

    • +3 votes

      Morning Bobsi,

      For high drain devices, rechargables such as 2500mah or higher are probably the way to go (flashes, digital cameras, remote controlled toys etc)… For example: http://dicksmith.com.au/product/S4469/eneloop-xx-lsd-1-2v-25...

      However the higher capacity eneloop batteries do have some disadvantages vs the 2000mah eneloops (shorter lifespan, faster self discharge when not used)…

      These batteries (2000mah eneloops) are not a one dose suits all, and the right battery you choose is definitely reliant on your use type (slow long term, fast short term power usage etc).

      Also to consider are Nickel Zinc rechargable batteries that have even more punch to them (but need a special charger)…

      just so you know, i used sanyo 2400 rechargeables and later on eneloops for my canon speedlite 430 ex 2. (which is powered by 4 AAs) with no dramas.

      been using eneloops ever since they launched (was given free at their event).. i find them more reliable and cheaper than those oneshot ones :)

      beauty of it is that the batteries (not these ones in the post), are white based, so they can be marked easily with a black marker which batch it is.

      Thanks for the replies, good to know :)

    Perfect timing. Just bought a Fenix TK41 last night, which uses 8 x AA batteries.

    Done.

    Thanks OP.

      Snap! My tk41 just arrived last week. Great torch, and now I can get the back up batteries.

  •  

    Anyone used an Energizer charger with the Eneloops?

    •  

      i did, and that's the only charger i had…, but i only charge it for 8-10 hours… dun dare to charge more than that hours

  •  

    Thanks bought 2

    Been waiting for this. Just ordered. Thanks.

  •  

    Thanks for the post! Got these last time and they have been working awesomely good! I'm thinking about buying an external flash soon for my Canon 600D and I'm sure AA batteries will be needed in some point in time! Better to grab these at the awesome price then $40 :)

  •  

    how much do they cost, usually?

    edit: Dang it… should look before I ask. :) Save $20. :D

    • +2 votes

      got one, just because everyone else says it's GREAT! :)

      •  

        ha ha, I did that on the last sale… Glad I did… I'll never go back and use anything else…

  •  

    I've seen it asked a few time, however didn't really see a definite answer. Do i need a special charger or will my current one do a good job, or the best job? Is it better to wait for a special that includes their charger? I currently have a basic duracell NiMH one.

    •  

      I bought a La Crosse charger from Amazon:
      Works with all NiCd and NiMH “AA” and “AAA” Rechargeable Batteries
      LCD shows capacity for each battery when charging is complete
      Charges AA & AAA rechargeable batteries simultaneously
      Will not charge defective batteries
      Select different charging current for each channel
      Automatically switches to trickle charge when charging is complete to ensure maximum battery capacity
      Automatically defaults to 200mA charge (the optimal setting for prolonging battery life)
      Overheat detection to protect over-charging
      7 Easy to Use Function Keys
      Charge Mode (charging current)
      Discharge Mode (discharging current)
      Refresh Mode (time elapsed)
      Test Mode (accumulated capacity)

    My purchase last time of the glitter ones was a bit disappointing. Maybe I got a bad batch, but they were not anywhere near in the same league of my imedions.

      me too, might need to contact support, some of the batteries loose charge after a week or two, not very LSD

    I got a pack, great !!!

    Any good deal on eneloop charger? anyone can advise?

    •  

      I am interested in knowing this as well. Anybody?

    •  

      i would recommend a maha charger for any rechargable.

  •  

    Thanks OP!!! :) finally got them, Viva OZB!

    i've got about 8 energiser rechargables around the house somewhere … but these are sparkley … and since i like doing stuff in pairs (and keeping them together), then i got two packs :) cheers for the posty

  •  

    Great job OP, ordered one.

  •  

    Awesome deal! Thanks OP :)

  •  

    Missed out last time, been waiting for this deal for ages!

    Got 2.

  •  

    Great! I just ordered so they haven't sold out yet.

  •  

    Great deal, I ordered 3 of them last time they had this special. So this time I'll be generous and let someone else have my share. Very good battery and very good price!

  • +4 votes

    Firstly, great deal! Eneloop are clearly the best LSD rechargables in the market and have been so for yrs….sorry Imedion, you lose capacity too fast.

    But BLOODY HELL….I missed out on this deal in SEP and have waited and waited - finally ordered 8 Eneloops off Amazon yesterday! $29 delivered, best price I could find in the world for certain legit stock (these are VERY widely faked!).

    That said I still bought another 2 packs via this deal - its too good to turn up. Word of advice to all those who've bought - CONGRATS you have the best LSD rechargables currently available to consumers SO DON'T be silly enough to kill them in a 'dumb' charger…buy a Powerex Maha 9000 or La Crosse. Google is your friend, dumb chargers will kill the Eneloops..again DYOR. Again, cracking deal - thanks OP.

    •  

      You should be able to cancel your Amazon order no worries unless it has shipped already

      •  

        Yes, I know thanks Undercut - but they're so efficient they got it out overnight - anyway no big deal. I'll just store the surplus cells in the freezer until needed. :-)

  • +3 votes

    Got this deal last time & even though I dont need any more batteries I'm considering buying it… because, potato.

    •  

      You gotta… think of the potatos you'll be able to cook when you burn the older batteries!

      I too got a pack as well… will go well with my 8 white enloops, and my Powerex and iMedion sets.

  •  

    Thanks for sharing, ordered 2.

  •  

    got a pack..
