Need your help on Eneloops.

After 3 months of hard work and research the website is about to be ready.

 

 

Feedback on my website:

 I`d like to receive some feedback on my new website eneloop101.com. 

  • How does the site load on your cellphone/tablet/desktop? (Im not an expert, but I walked into a few problems with Margins etc.
  • Is font size large enough?
  • Any mistakes?

 

Help me please:

 

Although I have been digging around so much and for so long, I still have a few things I couldn`t find. 

So I`d like to ask you guys for some help if possible. 

  • The first thing that comes to mind is a Picture of a graph that shows that the cycle life of eneloops is calculated to 60% of its capacity. So if after X amount of cycles the capacity has dropped to 60% they call it a day. I have seen this graph with explanation before but can`t find it anywhere. Found..

  • Also, I`d like to know if you would like some questions to be answered about eneloops. Possibly for the FAQ page. 

  • Ideas about what pages/info you would like to see added in the future. 
  • PDF Eneloop catalog 2013-2014

  • Self Discharge Tests, especially tests longer than 1 year
  • Anybody bought some Red Eneloops at Walmart or Costco? What product code does it have?


Facebook:

I opened a facebook page for some discussions and if you like it, please give me a Like on facebook as well: https://www.facebook.com/eneloop101 

Whether you want to discuss about eneloops, or just hang around and chat away, feel free to drop by!

Thank you!!! Great job!

I have had my Enloop 4 X AAA HR-4UTBG Batteries for almost 4 years.

They still hold a great charge and work very well. Thumbs Up

Looks nice, thanks for your efforts!!

I posted this on your facebook page, but I will post it here also.

Greetings, I have been wondering about something and I suspect you may be able to answer my question. I have a small quantity of AA and AAA eneloops. I use a Panasonic BQ-CC17 charger. I would like to know if one can tell the remaining capacity of a cell based on measuring the open circuit voltage after the cell has rested for some time after the last use. The chart below was copied of CPF if I recall correctly. I believe the person who posted it claimed they measured the remaining capacity with a smart charger of some sort.
I have been using this as a guide for a few weeks now, and am just wondering how accurate it is.

Most of my usage is in flashlights, and a couple AAs in a radio. Most of my lights have some sort of low voltage cut off except my Fenix LD01, and I think my manker E01 on firefly also will continue to just light at sub 1V battery levels.

Anyway, would love to hear your thoughts on this.

thanks, Matt

I think reviews of the current Panasonic Eneloop lineup vs the older Eneloop would be good. Are they better or worse? Do they hold charge as long? etc

Well, they are definitely one of the best NiMH batteries out there!

|That is a very interesting thing to dive a little deeper into. |It might have some correlation. Ill hope to look into that in the near future with some of my batteries!

I hope it definitely will take away some questions.... 

and probably invites for a few new questions as well Wink

Yes, a lovely question. I want to know that as well. But to keep this answer short, it can be hard to tell, because the older types...are older.. so I dont know if that effects the batteries. but nevertheless something to look into.

Yes, I clearly am:) Sanyo/Panasonic/FDK/Twicell batteries have been the best NiMH batteries since 2005 Wink

Very informative website ChibiM! You certainly have put a lot of effort into it. I think it’s very intuitive to read and move about. I’m an eneloop fan and first learned about them from you. They are the only AA and AAA batteries I will buy now. Panasonic should pay you for all the work you have done.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

I will just ask them to give me 1% of their shares! That's all LOL Wink

Great website and thanks for the effort. Australians would be interested in discharge and cycle comparison tests between the Chinese and Japanese Eneloops. Though personally I’m buying Ikealoops now.

Hi StephenK. Thanks. 

There are tests for that although from a few yeara ago. I will be adding links on my eneloop test page. All availavle teats I will be linking to and probably give some of my ideas about the testing.

Ikealoops are great for the price but they dont look as good and dont have a Std eneloop version. Only lite and pro so to say.

Being new to the flashlight hobby and not knowing what Eneloops was I found your website informational. I learn quite a bit about Eneloops. I have to say thanks for the time you put into the site and it’s well written and to the point.

Hey Venom, my pleasure. If you have any questions, feel free to post them here, on the eneloop101 facebook page, or in the 2005-2017 eneloop thread (see sig).

Very nice ChibiM! You just earned yourself a spot on the Related Sites menu.

Incredibly comprehensive information. The only thing I would like to see added is a list of reliable international sellers of genuine Eneloop products, as it’s still kind of a crapshoot even with your guidelines on how to identify fakes. Or better yet, if you were to offer your fantastic Eneloop sales service again…. Cool

Well, it`s more a humble position to put myself in. I like to say they are the best, but depending on the situation I just say they are one of the best.. Some people are easily upset you know Wink 
Well I can actually say they Are the best. Others would be Fujitsu Wink and probably a few more.

Cool. I am more working on getting more info than actually adjusting things like screen settings, so if people come across some "things" Id like to know so I can try to take care of it.

Hey SB, thanks for doing that. Well, you got me there. A "Where to Buy" list will be added in the near future. Im currently working on Rewraps, which is taking me many hours as well. This is the third night in a row getting that info up, and I`m only up till the 3rd brand. 
If I ever move back to Japan, that might be a side job to do. 

 

So, stay tuned. More coming soon!

Wow, great job.
I especially like the eneloopy page, and your charger page has the common BQ-CC17 charger that is hard to find info about (when i had searched a while back).

@ChibiM I guess I put you in a spot asking a question about others NiMh battery in a Eneloop thread (sorry if I did). Being a newbie I have questions about NiMh . Thanks for the reply!

 @bort: Thanks. For some PDF files and info I had to dig pretty deep. Can't remember if I had to do that for thr cc17!?

 

@venom: no problem at all in this case. If it were for the sole reason of deviating the thread its another story Wink I can say with great confidence that NiMH batteries from the FDK plant in Japan ARE the best in the world, no question about that Smile
