Are there sources for Americans to buy current Eneloop products, or are we relegated to older versions of their batteries?

Thanks, but I was hoping for a little more American.

When might current Eneloop products become sold in the United States, this seems odd that a Sanyo product wouldn’t be sold here.

I bought a pack of these a few weeks ago. They come in the original packaging with the plastic holding case- they’re definitely original. Not a bad deal- especially if you don’t have prime or are buying $25 worth of stuff.

$12.45

Panasonic has replaced all their Sanyo Eneloop branded batteries in most stores.

Yesterday I`ve been looking for some batteries upon request, but had a hard time finding the special editions.
Most shops are now carrying the newest Panasonic eneloops.
Some big stores still have the older ones, but are still pricey.

What I also noticed, is that they are not continuing the PLUS line up. I guess that this type of battery is a little too specialized to bring to the average user.

I jumped on this deal of 16, 3rd generation Eneloop AA for $42.00 from Amazon (free shipping).

http://www.amazon.com/Sanyo-Pre-Charged-Rechargeable-Batteries-version-F...

I hope everyone agrees that they are authentic and 3rd gen.

Now I’m looking for a deal on 3rd. generation AAAs.

Hi Brad,

I suppose they are authentic, but it cant be seen from the pictures.
The pictures show the 1st/2nd gen with venting holes.
sure tell use when you receive them!

I got them 6 weeks ago and to my non-expert eye they look fine.

They don’t have vent holes and are labeled HR-3UTGB and embossed/stamped, 12-08 E1.

At $10.50 per set, it seems pretty sweet, but they have no deals on the AAAs.

I wonder how hot the regular eneloops can get during high discharge. I thought these were meant for toys? Maybe they couldn’t market them very well.

You can check my test/review of them, I has a temperature probe on them and discharge with up to 10A. I have also tested the XX, but have not published the result yet.

Thanks, HKJ! So they could potentially get hotter still in housing with no ventilation.

Much hotter, when testing I only have one cell with air around most of it.

I am using my clamp to hold the battery:

And I do not put NiMH into a LiPo sack.

 

The battery is probably slightly hotter than I measure, because I stop measuring when I stop discharging, but the maximum temperature will first reach the thermo sensor a bit later.

Nice clamp setup! Is such extreme heat harmful to the cells or even dangerous?

It does make me wonder if this PLUS technology will be integrated into future Panasonic eneloop generations.

I am interested into knowing the performance of the XX compared to the white regular eneloop.

Interesting to see how it performs under high loads (more than 3 amps)

Thanks for sharing, mate!

The eneloop is rated for 50°C ambient, but it does not say what the maximum battery temperature is.

If the temperature gets to high it will damage the batteries, but if damage happens at 60°C, 100°C or even higher I cannot say.

Good to know, I thought once they started on a new generation they stopped making the old.

If you want to see some eneloop torture (please don`t watch fishinfool)

take a look at this link.
Look at the video half way down, and you can see the difference between the classic eneloop and the Plus.

I didn’t realize until just now, reading this thread, that Panasonic acquired Sanyo, and are phasing them out. So my “Sanyo” eneloops are antiques and will be collector’s items in a hundred million years.

Hi all,

 

I am looking to buy some Eneloop cells for my Quark QP2A and Nitecore EA4w flashlights I have on the way and was wondering if it is worth spending the extra money to buy the higher capacity XX 2500mAh Eneloops over the standard 1500 cycle/2000mAh ones ?

 

Any advice ?

They have less life to them is my understanding.
