Thanks! I have seen them in the $12 range, so this is even better. One pack ordered.

it;s decent but these do not claim to be LSD batteries

which you need for cameras at least
low self discharge
AKA ‘pre charged’

ok wait, sorry,they are

but keep in mind that may not last long
i got some cheap LSD AAs . FLEPOW brand. after a year they still work but they discharge in about a week to where they do not run the camera they used to run
they used to hold charge at least a month
now you have to keep them in the charger all the time on ‘trickle’ – no better than the 5 year old ones i replaced with them now

charged maybe 40 times

AFAIK, these AmazonBasics are rebranded Eneloops, so they should hold up well.

yeah for all i know, maybe they all do that — lose the LSD capability gradually — or maybe my camera is just overly picky

those same batteries are still ok in flashlights or kid toys

but digital cameras are famously picky

These are good batteries. They perform just like the Duracell and real eneloops. Can’t tell any difference. Same capacities on testing as well

I thought the black ones are supposed to be the higher capacity ones… equivalent of Eneloop Pro? Or is it the grey ones? Amazon has been changing wrapper colors quite a bit over the years… can’t keep up.

Do you have an analyzing charger to measure their capacity?

They are Minimum 750mAh as shown in the OP link on Amazon.
Entire label is black with white lettering, Green ring at top. No other coloring.
Same as the last 2 pruchases I have. Never got the White ones.

Dont be offended… Just not been a good day.
Yes I do have a charger to check the capacity but I really do not see the need to. It’s an Eneloop for $1.25ea… get some. Still $10 for an 8 pack.

The black label is just Bezos’s marketing department.

“Ooh, people know black Eneloops have higher capacity, let’s paint our regular ones black …”

Note the main page says “Packaging may vary”

Is the country of origin labeled on the package for the black-with-green Amazon cells?

PS — even trickier — when you hover the cursor over the various different size packages, all the popup illustrations show the black-with-green cells, not the white ones pictured on the main page.

Hmmmm …. “for more information search for B00CWNMXQW” says the fine print in the packaging image.

That brings up two items: Amazon Basics and the YCDC brand NiMH cells.

But then Amazon’s higher capacity ones (equivalent of Eneloop Pro) are painted grey, so go figure. Smile

Received my order yesterday.  Cells were black topped and black wrapper with green band near the positive end.  Says made in Japan and HR3.  Has date stamp of 201704.  Discharged tested 4 cells at 300mA right out of the wrapper (Used a Li-500 which first charges the cells).  Capacity measurements ranged from 766 to 794 mAh.  

Not sure I follow the above.  Can I be confident that these are truly LSD cells?

EDIT:  Read.  Seems I can trust that these are indeed LSD cells.  Thanks again for the alert RC.  Smile

yes, that post was worded in such a bizarre manner, but I think he’s saying that usually Japanese produced items are more expensive than average, so if the cost is cheap it’s “not like made in Japan”

please feel free to chime in and elaborate

Thanks, raccoon city!

I don’t have a whole lot of applications that use AAA cells, but I couldn’t resist the sale.

Capacity at first discharge cycle seems good.
