I've checked ebay and Amazon, no mention of a 3rd generation Eneloop battery that will charge 1800 times.

But lots of mentions of fake 1500 Eneloops.

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

I wasn't impressed with eneloops at first . .  until I saw how long they stay charged and how less often I have to replace AA rechargeables.

Besides; they look way sexy in a battery holder.

I found some of the newest eneloops on ebay that charge 1800 times.  They are in Japan and cost $35 for 8 batteries plus $15 for shipping.  That's $50 for 8 batteries.  I can buy 10 eneloops from costco for $20.  I will never need to recharge them 1500 times anyway.

I may buy some of the Eneloops later on.  But I believe the Duracells will serve my needs well.  Like I said I like supporting the company that supports me.  If they last me a year, I'll be happy.  I'll just buy some more.  I have always liked Duracell batteries.  So did my dad.  They make some of the best alkaline batteries in my opinion.

Ok guys you talked me in to buying a 8 pk of the good Eneloops.  I think this was a pretty good deal.

Don't you have a Costco near by?  You get 10 AA eneloops for less than $20 and they are the light blue and dark blue color.  I like having the colored ones because it's easy to tell which is which when using and testing them.  I looked up the new eneloops they only sell in Japan and they sell an 8 pack and everyone is a slightly different color.  That's pretty cool.

ILIKE:  Just stick those eneloops away for a rainy day and use the Duracell batteries for now.  They will give you longer burn time and you will be saving your eneloops for a time when you might not be able to easily replace your batteries.

It's too bad some of us flashaholic/light whores don't live closer to each other.  Wouldn't it be great to swap lights for a week or so to see if we liked the other guys lights and save us from buying lights that will eventually become shelf Queens?   

I would love to let you borrow my Caveman and Blaze for a week to see how good they were.  I would love to play with your Sunwayman and 7G5.  You could edc my S-mini for a week before you realize you can't live without it.
