How to enter:

I need an extra pair of (English) eyes. 

  1. Please visit the eneloop101.com website and simply find any sentence that is incorrect, strange, unclear, could-be-improved, has wrong grammar, is-plain-stupid, is-too-Dutch... (that shouldn`t be too difficult Wink )
  2. A. Post the sentence in your reply plus the "better version" (no need to link or anything as I can find them easily)
  3. B. If you can`t find any mistakes please just post what you like to see being added to the site
  4. Tell me whether you prefer to receive 4AA or 4AAA batteries when you win. 


  5. This one is NOT a requirement to enter:if you`d like please give the eneloop101 facebook page a thumbsup. (I will probably do some sort of giveaway for the facebook page members in the future as well)

Example post:

You can make up your own text of course

"envelopes are rechargeable batteries"

Should be: Eneloops are rechargeable batteries

4AA for me please

 

 

Closing date: I will close the giveaway somewhere around Black Friday....or Cyber Monday..... or....... Smile 


I will use Random.org to draw a number

 

What you`ll get?

4-pack of AA or AAA std eneloop batteries

I will order the batteries directly from an online store and let them ship them to the winner

 

 If you want to enter, but can`t find any (new/other) mistakes because your English isn`t your mother tongue, just let me know... and I can come up with something else just for you guys.

"We got you covered with almost 20 pages of information dedicated to eneloops on this website, referred to as the eneloop encyclopedia, aka eneloop wkipedia." The first error is simple, 'We' should be We have or 'We've', so the sentence should start with We've got you covered.. Additionally, a comma after 'covered', would be appropriate. Finally (I don't know if this rule applies in 'American English', the name Eneloop should always start with a capital E. Corrected sentence: We've got you covered, with almost 20 pages of information dedicated to Eneloops on this website, referred to as the Eneloop Encyclopedia, aka, Eneloop Wikipedia. Of course, I could be wrong, because, I does talk reall different from how I does type eh..

 

4 AAA is my choice if lucky Smile 

Thanks.

My gratitude to those who are willing and able to help others (in whatever way you can)! Being human is more than just existing for yourself. Smile

For me 4*AAA please Smile

Edit: when in doubt, write the brand name exactly as the company does: eneloop, not Eneloop.
Generation is just another word => 2nd generation

“Where should I store my batteries? And at what temperature?

You are best of storing it in a dry cool place.

A better sentence would be:
“Your best bet would be storing them in a cool, dry place”
or
“Your best bet would be…”

With the official closing of the Sanyo trademark in Japan in March 2012, "eneloop universe" stopped as well. Some products like the mobile boosters were being improved and sold under the Panasonic brand.

So many corrections, do you regret the givaway already, Chibi? SillyParty

link to djozz tests 

“I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. And we scientists don’t know how to do that.”   (Gus Speth)

Happy to help edit, here’s a suggested improvement to the first paragraph:

Eneloop: simply the best!

You get to know everything about eneloops Learn more information about the history of eneloop batteries, and which are the best value today.

We got you covered with almost 20 pages of information dedicated to eneloops on this website, referred to as the eneloop encyclopedia, aka eneloop wikipedia.

I’d delete this sentence since it offers no value.

Eneloop batteries were (changed to plural to be consistent) first introduced in November 2005 by Sanyo Japan. Tests have continued to show that these are the best performing batteries in the industry.

In 2007 Sanyo also started producing C and D size batteries. In 2009 limited they also produced a Tones edition and in 2010 their first Low capacity version, (for low-drain devices) the Eneloop Lite. In the same year, a high-capacity model (for high-drain devices) was also produced and was called Eneloop XX/PRO.

In general, the language is pretty rough, but you should be focusing on your site benefits, not just the history of eneloop.

You said: Since then they regularly updated their special edition line-up with many kinds of wrappers

I think updated should be update since updated is past tense. So you should have this instead: “Since then they regularly update their special edition line-up with many kinds of wrappers”, or this “Since then they have regularly updated their special edition line-up with many kinds of wrappers”

nquinn has a good point about the homepage. I will probably delete quite a bit of text and focus on the benefits of the site... good idea. Just don`t know how much to delete yet.

In the FAQ section (and on other occasions) you used an accent character instead of an apostrophe:

…, you can only charge it till 70% of it`s full capacity.

Use either “it’s” or “it’s”.

In the About page, there’s the “my official name is” that irks my pedantic self a bit. I think it’s better to just say “my name is” or if you really want to be specific then “my real name is” or even “my legal name is”.

I already have 2 dozens of AAA for home use, so if I win I’d love to have some AAs Smile Thank you.

thanks for GAW, need some AAA’s

on the rewrapped batteries page:

-But since FDK is owned by Fujitsu there are more and more batteries out there that have a “eneloop” inside of them.
replace letter a with the word an

In the next sentence replace follow with read, and maybe use one to one instead of one on one
-That being said, if you follow the following list carefully, you`ll see that they are not always one on one copies.

I can always use more AAs.

Homepage:

  • I would replace “A list of characteristics on how to spot some counterfeits.” with simply “How to spot counterfeits.
  • I personally don’t like how the introductory paragraph reads. I would replace it with this: “Welcome to eneloop101.com aka Eneloop Encyclopedia aka Eneloop Wikipedia.We`ve got you covered with almost 20 pages of information dedicated to Eneloops!
  • Both, Sanyo and Panasonic made some interesting chargers.” Remove the comma.
  • The sad thing is that not all of their chargers are good”. Personal preference: I would change “The sad thing is that” to “Unfortunately”.
  • In 2009 limited they also produced a Tones edition and in 2010 their first Low capacity version”. Do not capitalize “Low”. Also change it to “low-capacity” (add hyphen).
  • For the complete line-up of all 21 special editions watch All limited edition Eneloop batteries”. I would change the word “watch” to “see”.
  • Watch all the Eneloop products (Eneloop Universe) ever produced”. Change to: “Click here to see all the products that Eneloop has ever produced (Eneloop Universe)” or more simply: “See all the products that Eneloop has ever produced (Eneloop Universe)
  • In the last paragraph, in one place you have Eneloop Universe surrounded by single quotes and later on with double quotes ‘ vs “. Make them consistent. I would use double quotes “
  • In 2009 Sanyo released their first limited edition eneloops, called Eneloop tones.” > “In 2009 Sanyo released their first limited edition Eneloops, called Eneloop Tones.
  • In 2010 Sanyo Eneloop celebrated their 5 year anniversary with a special edition Eneloop, called Eneloop Tones Glitter. Since then they regularly update their special edition line-up with many kinds of wrappers including Chocolate tones, Forest tones, with the latest addition being the Eneloop tones expedition.” > “In 2010 Sanyo Eneloop celebrated their 5 year anniversary with a special edition Eneloop, called Eneloop Tones Glitter. Since then they regularly update their special edition line-up with many kinds of wrappers including Chocolate Tones, Forest Tones, with the latest addition being the Eneloop Tones Expedition.
