  • The IKEA Ladda 2450mAh are $12/4 pack. Are they not meant to be the same battery?

    • +2

      Nope, these are better batteries

    • +1

      On the Amazon listing under manufacturer specs 2550mAh capacity is mentioned.

      • The second product image says "up to 2550mah. 2450mAh AA" so I suppose it's 2450mAh nominal

    • +4

      The Laddas used to literally be made on the same line as Eneloops, but due to mergers and antitrust actions, Eneloop no longer owns the factory that makes Eneloop batteries and so that factory now makes multiple brands of batteries on different lines (but they are all good batteries).

      There is only one factory in Japan that makes nimh batteries so any nimh battery made in japan is coming from the same factory that makes Eneloops (which Eneloop used to own but no longer does)

      • So if there is only one factory in Japan that makes NiMH batteries still Eneloops are made there, does that mean the Ladda Ikea batteries are still made at the same place as they are also made in Japan.

        Other than the wrapper being different is there technically anything different other than the claimed 2550mAh vs 2450mAh for the AAs?

        • The second product image states the AAs are 2450mAh. They're "up to 2550mAh"

          • @OZBMate8911: Sorry meant the difference between the Ikea Ladda and these Eneloops.

            I bought some Laddas not long ago and I am 100% sure that the packaging still said Made in Japan on there (specifically looked for it before buying).

            So if they are made at the same place as Eneloops I guess what's the actual performance difference?

            • +1

              @shiprekt: I picked up some LADDA's yesterday

              Still says made in Japan

              • @impoze: Yep literally was at Ikea earlier today and checked as well haha. Same finding made in Japan still.

        • +1

          According to some recent tests I've read and seen, the Laddas ironically test as having the same capacity as the Eneloop Pros but a noticably faster discharge rate in camera flashes than the Eneloop Pros (something the Eneloop Pro's are supposed to be good at). This would seem to indicate that they aren't being made in the same line in the factory but they are still very similar, and if you are using them to power a camera flash the Laddas are faster.

    • +3

      Ikea batteries have a worse wrapper on them, peels easier.

      • Yes.

        I also have 2-3 AAA Ladda Batteries that failed. Very annoying. They were less than 1 year and rarely used.

    • +1

      I reckon theyre identical, I've seen reports that show slight differences, but there are slight differences with eneloops between batches anyway.

      At $4 a battery every day vs $4.95 a battery on special I don't see a 23% benefit in buying Eneloops for my use cases. Maybe if your a professional the costs are negligible, but for me with kids toys I've switched!

  • Anyone else having issues with these leaking (mine are ~9 months old and 2 have leaked)? Might of just got a shiity batch

    • I got a 4 pack around 5 years ago, still going strong no leaks, just picked up another 4 on this deal.

    • I've got about 40 in circulation and never a leak, all perfect.

    • I've been running Eneloops for a decade, none have leaked.

      Ladda cells for the past 12 months, same.

      I've come across occasional mention of Ladda cells leaking on OzB though.

    • Never once, at least 10 years in rotation

  • +1

    The IKEA Ladda range have much fewer discharge cycles, around 500 compared to Eneloop's 1500.

    • But IKEA Ladda 2450mAh are $12/4 pack vs $22/4pack.
      Double the cost, triple the discharge cycles.

      What do we do!

    • Good catch!

    • Eneloop pros, ie the ones in this deal, do not have a recharge count of 1500, it's 500.

      So the Laddas are the same.

  • +1

    waiting for AAA batt instead of AA
