Did you have to send photos? Did you linked to this thread? (to know what to do..)

This post/thread "may" contain referrals, a little contribution I "earn" in form of points ONLY if you buy the item. The purpose is to redeem items using the points and then making reviews of them in the forums to shar

This really belongs in a DD thread at this point, not an Eneloop thread.

I think I have received FAKE Gen1 Eneloops from Manafont, because they don't have the date code on the side. I can do a discharge test, but my question is, which voltage do I have to select to discharge? 0.9v is OK or it's too much? I would like to do a 4A discharge but don't know when to cutt off. Some pics of my cells from MF:

0.9V is fine, but if you’ll do discharge at 4A, you might even set it to 0.8V, as you’ll lose some voltage in leads between your discharge equipment and battery, springs (if you use cradle, etc.

Did you check out my recent thread?

Yours look exactly like mine, which I assume means that they are fake too Wink
I guess none of those big Chinese DinoDirect-like retailers carry original Eneloops so everyone should avoid buying rechargeable brand name batteries from them or buy only if other members can confirm they have got the same item and they can confirm that its original.

Thanks, now I’m charging two of them, then I’ll begin with the discharge…

Yes, I saw your post, but on the entire thread I couldn’t find Manafont, so I though the problem was just DinoDirect.
I live outside the US, so I think I can’t get Eneloops (batteryjunction’s shipping is too much exaggerated, so I’ll never buy there).

Results:

Discharge to 0.8V @ 2Amps: 177mAh

Discharge to 0.8V @ 1Amp: 1703mAh

So… FAKE cells, but could be worse.
MF Manafont doesn’t sell genuine Sanyo Eneloops!!!!

Omg. I want the AAA Eneloops Pro’s. They look gorgeous, and hopefully will perform just as well.

I wonder if the charge cycle count has stayed the same for these?
Good news is that they dont self discharge as soon as previous gen XX did.

Hi Veer,
In the opening post, or the second one, you can see the overview of the amount of cycles, etc…

as far as I could see they showed a 500cycle. But looking at some pictures they actually show 800cycles.
see this picture: and it says 800回 which means 800 times.

but looking at this page, it mentions 500times.
To me it looks like they just copied the info from the old PRO cells.

So, Kreishill, did you?

Also, has anyone of you bought their XX 2500mAh from previous generation? How good do they keep up with frequent use and how about their recharging count? 500 seems a bit low, have you experienced any issues?

Also, to those who have bought latest generation AAA XX’s, how are their capacities?
