Thanks for doing this.
I’m interested in how the sales of NiMH cells have changed the past few years.
Most electronics have moved towards li-ion, so I’d assume they would have gone down, but that’d just be my guess.

@sirius, yes, there are already some new eneloop editions Smile and Japan didnt have any special editions since 2015......

@klrman: the SKY rc 3000 has that only as Max. So they will probably stop way below that Voltage, because the detection of -dv cut off will be the reason to stop the charge. Probably you measure the 1.46V directly after taking them off the charger? Check out HKJ review about the details. 

@Pablo, yes, thanks!

@Pabo, yep, depends on when you do the voltage reading. 

@Walkintothelight: yep, depends on when you check the voltage. 

@Ryansoh3: good point.. noted that down. 

 

Thanks for all the interesting questions! 

best

Marco

Never charged the eneloops with the SkyRC MC3000 as of yet, just went through the menu until I got to Eneloop and scrolled down, but I didn't know how it works and just thought it was going to terminate at 1.65V without knowing about the the dv cut off, thanks for explaining that.  Next time I charge the batteries with the BQ-CC17, I'll Iook at the voltage right after I pull them then a day later to make sure I am posting the correct voltage.

Sure! The voltage under load is different from the voltage taken directly off the charger. So the 1.65 is Voltage under load. Even if you'd take them off the charger and measure the Voltage within 10 seconds after taken them off, you wouldnt see 1.65, but less. They quickly drop in Voltage when they are taken off the charge Smile

What is the most unusual/crazy test that he has seen performed with eneloops?

Why does BLF like Japanese robot girls so much?

Can ChibiM have free samples to share with BLF members who have asked questions? That’s eneloop samples, not robot girls, although… if robot girls are primarily designed for cooking and cleaning I am sure my wife would let me have one Innocent

When is going to be the meet up with that eneloop guy??

They’re good for at least 12 years. I have some Eneloops from 2006, and I’m going to run a capacity test on 8 of them this weekend. (I’ll post when I get the results.) Based on how they still perform, they’re still very good cells. Internal resistance is definitely higher than new Eneloops (based on the IR measurement from chargers), but it’s still low enough to use them in high-power lights. But I mainly just use them for radios and stuff like that, now.

Oh, and Japanese robot girls rule!

That is official claim from sanyo/panasonic or it is the conclusion you have found taking into account your eneloops??

@mapache: Good question, will ask him about the robot girls! You never know, but you can join the eneloop101 facebook group where I will be doing a giveaway soon. (when we reach 100 likes).. Have done enough of them here Big Smile 

@fran82: that question I already have on the list! great question.. definitely interested to know. I will meet him/them tomorrow afternoon.

I think you are lucky to have the chance to interview that person…

Good luck enjoy and let us know the answers!

About 2/3 of all the questions asked and answered... will have to write them all down, and post them on the eneloop101.com site.

Just looked around the Eneloop101 site, but couldn’t find the Q&A info. Has it been posted, yet? My Japanese girl robot is waiting to power-up…

Hey guys. Sorry I hadn't seen the updates in this thread. Somehow missed them. Someone told me on CPF about me not responding. Ask Boaz, he knows I always respond to his PMs in a timely manner Wink

Anyway, I sent the questions and answers in to double check for accuracy.. Hopefully will be receiving them back this week before I post them. If you guys have any other suggestions rather than posting them on the dedicated pages (FAQ and Charge), let me know!

 

Sorry for the delay.. Just probably a couple more days.

Since you're back, can you let me know if these AAA's with the number BK-4MCA24/CA are legit?  Normally there are two "C's" after the M but this pack has only one C.

I have never seen them, but that seems just the packaging code, and not the product code of the batteries. I'm pretty sure the product codes on the batteries themselves will say 4MCCA. I just searched for picture, but couldnt find any of the batteries included.. but as I said, its probably just the packaging code. If you ever come across some pictures (not product pictures) I'd like to see them up close.. Smile
