I wonder if Costco will carry the latest "Panasonic" Eneloops. I'd like to get some..

Maybe everyone has already seen this, but Amazon has Eneloops, 8 AA for $16.98, 8 AAA for $15.99. Might be interesting if you order enough stuff to reach the $35 free shipping. 1900 maH/1500 charges variety.

Can anyone comment on whether these Eneloop AAAs on Amazon are 3rd gen? The description looks right but the crown in the pic seems off. I have never owned Eneloops and I want to try them out.
Thanks,
John

Hi John,

Read this at cpf:http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?362641-Confusion-of-e...

They seem to have 2nd gen wrappings in 3rd gen packaging.. some say the batts are 3rd gen but something went wrong with the transition from 2nd gen to 3rd gen, an  placed the wrong wrappers.

 

I'm also selling real eneloops, the latest available,4th generation 100% the real deal!

If you are interested see my for sales thread here on BLF.

Don't buy through this link.

smells fishy to me.

I get my blister-with-blue-case Eneloops through the Europa importer iCell Limited.

Thanks ChibiM, the post you linked was to the same Amazon page I was looking at. It does look like their image was the only accurate element on that page full of fraud. I was thinking it was just an old image with newer merchandise.

Thanks kreisler, I am in the US to I can’t use your link. The 5 pack seems nice, I haven’t seen that before.

What about these bundles?

Are the chargers okay? Do they charge each cell individually?
I am looking for a dumb charger for AA and AAAs.

fyi,
I just received my 3rd generation eneloop batteries from ebay seller 1111deals. They bodies of his listings weren’t updated so I contacted him, he told me to use these Item Numbers: AA-181129231052 and AAA- 180577351972 for 3rd generation.
I am new to eneloops but the packaging shows 1800 charges, the crown is correct, the spelling looks good. The AAAs are marked hr-4utgb, manufacture date is 13-06. The AAs are hr-4utgb, manufacture date is 13-04.

I would have asked you to get them for me, until I saw they’re for the European market only.

BTW… I understand these just hit the market a few weeks ago.

How is it they’re labelled as Sanyo Eneloop, and not as Panasonic (not that I’m complaining or anything)???

I keep finding places to use them and need some more 4th gens!

Any chance you have 3 AA 8 packs and 1 AAA 8 pack?

Thanks!

Jon

Good news for the rest of the world!

They can get them locally!

@ the same time a little amusing that I can sell 8 packs for even less than a big shop in Europe..even after my PayPal,exchange losses, and shipping from Japan.

So I might continue selling these 4th gen. Untill the prices drop below my prices, that it's not worth for me to keep selling them. But maybe at that time we will have 5th generation Wink

Always in need of some Chibi eneloops. At least we’re not going to get fakes!

Never ever forget and forgive. Niwal**er new kid on the block trying to act tough.

Found 4th generation Eneloops in a retail store (Microcenter, on the outskirts of Philadelphia); in 4-packs and 8-packs.
They have AAs packaged with chargers (two different kinds of chargers… they looked cheap); and Black XX in both AAA and AA.

I was even surprised to find some Tenergy LSD D-Cells.

They look real but did you possibly take them out of the packet before putting back in to take the photos?
Why I ask is that Panasonic make very sure the eneloop logo is facing outwards in the packaging in exactly the same way for every cell and they use a light adhesive to keep them in place. I’d be wary if these came in the pack as displayed in your photo.

Accumulator has a point..

In Japan we just can`t buy any eneloop packs without the eneloop (Panasonic) text facing towards you.

Here a pic from other BK-4MCC cells sold in Europe, not for the Japanese market.

 

And all the cells sold in Japan look a like..(eneloop text facing you)

All my Eneloops are Sanyo Gen 3, I have several packs unopened, and the 4 AA Eneloops in a charger, are exactly the same, centred. 3 packs of coloured 8 x AA, 2 packs UOMO, 1 pack Rouge, same, all front and fairly close to centred. Also, 1 pack of 4 x AAA, centred.

I do have one 4 pack in the charger though, that has one battery that is maybe 30 degrees off centre, but the other 3 are centred too.

All bought from bricks and mortar stores with good reputation in Australia.

No… I did not.

I just opened the pack 2-minutes ago.
Good point about the logo facing front.
Microcenter is a very reputable store (they’re a lot like Fry’s).
Maybe some 3rd party is repackaging the batteries for the U.S. Market?
The labels are very precisely applied.
I see a sort of indented watermark on the bottom of the label: 13 – 12M2 if I’m reading it correctly.
The batteries/labels are pretty much flawless. If they’re not legit, they’re supreme quality bootlegs.
I’ll take pictures of the batteries themselves and post them later tonight.

Are the graphics on the front right of the package supposed to be cut-off like that?

No… they’re not cut off at all. It’s simply the camera angle.
