Cheap Eneloops at Dickies again!

No click and collect, online only.

Postage looks to be $4.95, maybe more if you're out in the sticks, enter postcode to find out before you order. I've tried a few random but apparently valid numbers and they all spat out $4.95.

Update: URL I had posted stopped working but it seems the product is still available, new URL added. It doesn't picture 2 packs but the description says it's for 2 packs.

      I know it's early, but am I missing something here? It looks to me that what you're suggesting is to spend $44 pickup on what you can get for $25 delivered. Need coffee, confused.

      Edit: Okay, after another coffee and a couple of facepalms, I can only conclude that the above poster has missed the fact that this bargain is for TWO 4 packs of eneloops.

        Lol, my calculations were way off. That's what happens when you comment on ozbargain after a late night session of Diablo 3. Think I might have needed a coffee before I posted the comment.

          Diablo 3…you're forgiven.

          No worries, it was early and you had me wondering for a sec if I was nuts (more than usual) or what!

  •  

    Awesome, been waiting for these to go on special

  •  

    Thanks OP - add these to the multi-coloured ones bought last time

  •  

    No AAA deal again.

    You buy these because they last many times longer than the cheap regular rechargeable batteries. So you never have to recharge as often. Seemed to be forever charging the regular type ones.

    I have some AAA in a Marantz programmable remote control and they last many months with lots of daily use, compared to the 3 weeks or so with the cheap nasty regular rechargeable batteries. Also AA in a 360 controller they don't go flat as quickly if I don't often use the controller.

  •  

    Thanks, got a pack and a quick charger. For those that need a charger, there standard 'non quick' one has $5 off on the site too.

  •  

    Guys I have no idea about rechargeable batteries, I have a set of energizer with charger, how do these compare seeing my energizer ones were $20 for a pack of 4

    •  

      energizers are good, i have used them for a long time. eneloops may hold charge better over time.
      the charger you use is important too.

  •  

    Here's a page that has eneloop info, they're only going to say good things but it might be interesting reading for some. Not sure why it's a Panasonic page though.

    •  

      I read here P bought them out.

    •  

      http://panasonic.net/energy/eneloop/whatseneloop/

      I guess panasonic manufacture them.

      •  

        They must do, either that or they sell them under license from Sanyo or perhaps vice versa.

        •  

          I believe Panasonic bought and now own Sanyo.

      •  

        Actually while Panasonic owns Sanyo, they are made by Fujitsu under contract for Sanyo.

      Hobbyking sell Turnigy brand batteries which seem to get favourable reviews. I recently ordered some AA and AAA from them, turned up no problems and pricing was good as was delivery cost.

      http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__342__85__LiPo_LiF...

      •  

        With Hobbyking, once you've registered on the site, make sure you buy from the AU store as then it is cheaper and quicker shipping.

        •  

          I did look at the au store after I registered but they didn't have the batteries listed, had to get them from .com

          This is what I get when I go to nimh batteries after clicking on the Australia tab:

          Meh the link doesn't work here, but I checked again, nothing listed in NiMH when on the Australia tab.

        •  

          " make sure you buy from the AU store as then it is cheaper"

          Not always the case. I bought a charger from them and the international store worked out to be cheaper. Still nice that they have a warehouse here though.

      •  

        79c each for the Turnigy AAA LSDS! Not in stock though.

        SKU: T800-AAA
        I'll put this here so I can find 'em in future. Hobbyking site gave me a headache.

    Already got my AAA's from that eVolta deal. Just waiting for the AA glitter pack for $19.99 delivered to come up again!

  •  

    checkout closing dse stores for a good price on eneloops too (if they have any left) you might be able to get the glitter 8PKs for half price or under.

    •  

      I checked out one weeks ago, when they hade that everydayrewards extra 10% off.

      Not the same price but I got the glitter ones at 40% off (instead of the 50% I'd missed) :)

    Eneloop AAs are 1.2V according to their datasheet. So like many rechargable batteries you will have problems if your device needs 1.5V to work properly.

    •  

      I have not came across a device that wont accept Eneloops.

    •  

      Devices such as … ?

    •  

      Very true. I have seen high power torches and, most commonly high power flash camera lights take a long time to be ready again compared to normal batteries.

    •  

      Most 1.5V batteries only start at 1.5V. I believe they drop to below 1.2V well before run out of charge. In the meantime, there are some devices sush as "high power flash camera lights" which recharge FASTER with rechargable batteries.

  •  

    Anyone with AGL? I registered to receive my bills online & they sent me a $25 vouchure which i used towards a 4 pack of rechargeable batteries from the AGL online store. They were meant to be $17 so i got them for free as the vouchure was for $25.

  •  

    Thanks for the deal OP :)

  •  

    Thanks for the deal OP, I've purchased the rainbow colored ones before and 2 packs of 4 but having then stolen by family and then thrown out since they think its disposable ones =_=

    •  

      lol… cheap disposable batteries :P not!

  •  

    I'm sure this has been asked before but what is a good charger for these? I currently only have one of the older Varta 15min quick chargers and I'm assuming it's no good for these?

          If the math adds up, for sure. Amazon did have a problem a while back where people were ordering the new 1500x recharge Eneloops but were getting the old 1000x stock, but I believe that's sorted out now and no longer happening.

    great bargain, their shipping was usual aussie slow (not dickies fault, just that our mail system is dated) but it's cheap :3

    •  

      I think Dicksmith use AAE. Extremely fast from my experience.

  •  

    ordered them so thanks OP
    still slightly concerned that invoice said 4AA Eneloops
    pic def showed 2x 4packs tho…..

  •  

    Wondering if I can tap into the great minds of Ozbargain here. Is there such thing as a 1.6v NiMh rechargeable AAA? The only 1.6v rechargeables I cab find are of the NiZn variety (which means a new charger). I'm looking specifically for 1.6v as they are to be used in a camera flash.

    EDIT: After a bit more research, it appears that NiMh rechargeables are limited to 1.2v.

  •  

    I really want to buy these batteries as I have a z96 LED video light that flickers with normal batteries after a few minutes so it ruins takes and I've heard that Eneloops are the solution.

    But, can I charge this with my Duracell Battery charger? It's an NiMH batter charger:

    Model: CEF14AU
    Input: AC 100 - 240v 50/60Hz 8W
    Output: 5.6V DC 360mA (4 AA NiMH) 2.8 DC 160mA (2 AAA NiMH)

    Thanks a bunch guys!

    EDIT: just realised that I will probably use them in my Canon 600D DSLR when I get a battery grip as well, Eneloops would probably be cheaper and last longer than the Canon battery.

      If you were running alkaline or heavy duty batteries, the Eneloop (NiMH) will be better. They are able to maintain current output much better than alkaline and heavy duty batteries.

      The charger you mentioned will have no problems charging the batteries. It is not as good as the Maha chargers in optimising the charging of the batteries, but good enough for general use.

      Eneloop are great batteries, which is why you don't see them sold in Woolworths or Coles, they don't want you do use them, because if you start using them, you'll probably never buy Energizer or Duracell Alkaline batteries ever again.

      •  

        Thanks Haz! Would the charge be just like normal or do I have to do something else? EG" when the LED on the charges indicates they're ready, would they need extra charge or anything?

        •  

          Just charge the batteries as normal. The standard charge cycle in these chargers should still charge the battery to a reasonably good level. It may also overcharge if the battery is not empty. Once the led says it's ready, it is not going to do much, it will either trickle charge at a very slow rate or stop completely. This charger is not much different to the standard charger that Sanyo sells with the Eneloops in Australia. The life cycle of the battery may be affected, but in the scale of things, not significant to be of a concern. I have used Eneloop since they came out for over 6 years and have been using smart and dumb chargers and all the batteries are still going strong, no batteries have died so far. My advice is not to use those 15 minute or 1 hour chargers, unless in an emergency. The fast chargers are not so good for the batteries life cycle.

          If you wish to ensure you prolong the batteries want to ensure you fully charge the batteries. This is something to buy or invest in. You can break-in new batteries, as well as analyse and 'refresh' the batteries. I have one of these, and it's good to use to check up on the batteries condition as well as charge them.

    Ordered battery plus another item the other day - just received the other item, but the battery is on "backorder". Anybody received theirs already?

    FYI - my little bargain meister pals - The Choice test on 23/9/11 rated Sanyo Eneloops second best overall out of 15 models tested, but best-in-test in terms of retaining their capacity after multiple recharges. The Kodak rechargeable came first,as was better on discharge time, but lasted 100 recharges less than the Eneloop! So the Sanyo looks like a good choice (no pun intended) but if you have a higher drain application, the Kodaks may be worth considering.
    Here is an extract of the Choice testing (I will probably be in trouble for pasting this):-

    "Self-discharging batteries

    Some rechargeable batteries lose some of their power everyday, even when not in use. This continues to be an issue when powering infrequently used devices, such as an emergency torches or cameras, as the batteries will go flat over time. In such situations, alkaline batteries are commonly used because they have a much better shelf life and can be trusted to work even if left unused for a year.
    The Sanyo Eneloop was, in 2006, the first low self-discharge (LSD) battery to deliver a higher capacity for much longer periods compared to other NiMH batteries. It helped make rechargeable batteries a better option for infrequently used devices. The latest low self-discharge (LSD) batteries claim to retain up to 85% of their charge after 12 months of non-use whereas standard NiMH batteries may lose 50% of their charge.
    The ability to immediately use the batteries out of the packet is another handy feature of an LSD or ‘ready to use’ NiMH battery, particularly with the demand to immediately power up the latest birthday or Christmas present.
    We put 15 rechargeable AA batteries to the test to see which ones last longest, can be recharged the most often, and don’t lose their charge when left unused. We included five “ready to use” batteries.

    Models tested

    Arlec CPCD1392
    Duracell 99474895
    Duracell Active Charge 98577668
    Energizer Recharge NH15BP4T
    Eveready RE15BP2T
    Kodak KAARPC-4
    Panasonic HHR-3XPT/2B
    Powertech Enekeep SB-1750
    Powertech SB-1738
    Sanyo Eneloop 4HR-3UTG-SAPP-2

    Vapex 92087
    Varta Power Accu 56756 412 404
    Varta Ready2use 56706 412 404

    We also measured two Lithium non rechargeable batteries (Duracell Ultra Lithium and Energizer Ultimate Lithium) and an Alkaline battery (Panasonic Evolta) finding their discharge over the test period to be imperceptible. So if you depend on your device to operate straight away after long periods of inactivity, you still may want to consider a lithium or Alkaline battery for some situations.

    Sanyo Eneloop 4HR 3UTG SAPP 2
    Scored 74/100
    Good points:
    • Ready to use and low self discharge.
    • Best value for the life of the battery.
    • Lasted over 300 recharges before retaining only 50% of its initial capacity, best in test.

    Bad points:
    • Average discharge time significantly less then some of the non LSD models."

  •  

    Just got my batteries. I order 2 of tem, so should have got 16 batteries, but they only posted 2x 4AA packs. Called them up, said the other 8 will be posted out ASAP.

    I think the title created the confusion, description and photo showed 8, but title doesn't mention 2 packs, or 8 batteries.

    CHECK YOUR ORDERS!

    Hope I will get 8 batteries, too much hassle to call and wait for another courier.

    I got mine the other day. Took longer than usual from Dick Smith though.

    Usually Ill get my orders in 2 days, this took over a week.
