New SANYO eneloop GLITTER Ni-MH LIMITED EDITION

Oh these are sparkly! Sadly, I already have way to many eneloops and have a hard enough time cycling them all.

Sale threads: http://www.cpfmarketplace.com/mp/showthread.php?246556-WTS-8-16-AA-New-SANYO-eneloop-GLITTER-Ni-MH-LIMITED-EDITION-(1-OR-2-PACKS) Not a bad price, considering they are going for about $33 US out of HK before shipping.

Although they don’t sparkle, I got my eneloop tones (8AA & 4AAA with eneloop charger retail pack) at Costco for $21 just before Christmas. I had so many off them that I sold the charger with 4AAA portions of the packages for $17 each. So $4 per 8 eneloop AA tones wasn’t a bad deal. Now I have 40 of them to go along with the myriad of other eneloops and duraloops... and others.

I bought 2 of the costco packs which is why the glitterloops don't appeal to me too much.  But if they happen to be available here and at a decent price--then my alter-ego 'batteryfool' will take over and probably buy a bunch.

boaz, time to get a membership, i found at least 5 of them in ohio.

the savings are immense, and its the place to get tires too

(unless your looking for race tires and cant afford PS2's lol, like me sometimes)

just one set of tires a year and it pays the 50 dollar yearly membership fee in savings there. then everything in bulk, i save soo much shopping there!

i think amazon.co.jp or rakuten international are better to buy 2packs or more.

24usd @8AA glitter, shipping would be less than 30usd for AU/US

You could get 8 packs of them and sell off the other 7 colours Silly

 

The sparkly pink ones might be a bit hard to sell though. Smile

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

That won't be a problem getting rid of the pink ones because my sister and nieces will be here this summer and pink is their favorite color.

Oh, but those arent the "glitter" eneloop tones. They're just no good unless the wrappers have the glitter on them. Yell

..it was for a school play ..!!!

I just buy the duraloops  last time i paid 1.25$each  on ebay but they are hit or miss  and you're lucky or you're a loser..I hate a stinkin auction  I just want  a price ..

 

Yeah I think there is a costco in colombus but it's too far away ...I just thought that 21 $ deal was a winner with a charger to boot ...

Yeah I'm cut off from nimh. 

24 eneloops, including original / tones / sanyo xx.  Oh and a few duraloops and rayovac hybrids.  Really silly, and I should be giving some away to family members lol.  I've stuck them in everything from remotes, clocks,cameras, flashlights, battery tester [yes, needs 4 batteries Wink ] gps.

The Sanyo XX are nice, but I know I paid a premium for them for an extra ~25% capacity. [$18 / 4 pack], and that was on sale.

I suppose the advantage of these glittery coloured cells is that it's quite unlikely that they will be thrown away by accident. I've already lost a Duraloop that way.
