The capacity is low and it do not give the battery any extra current capabilities.

Conclusion

This battery is not very interesting for most purposes, but if it is cheap enough it can be used in low current devices instead of alkaline cells.
One advantage with rechargeables over alkaline is the lower much leak risk, but with the fairly low capacity it will have to be charged 3 times as often as alkaline must be replaced.



Notes and links

The batteries was supplied by CPF/BLF user ChibiM for a review

I’ve read that these lite versions are better suited for cordless phones as opposed to regular eneloops.
They said the lite version is better in handling the abuse of the constant charging from the phones station.

I guess that we always have to make sure we have the Japanese eneloops made in the Fujitsu factory. We don't want the Chinese eneloops made in the Evolta factory. I see these came from chibi in Tokyo so thanks to both hkj and chibi - It's hard to believe, but Panasonic is actually counterfeiting their own eneloops.

It is always nice to have help with getting the interesting stuff to review.

I would also like to test the Chinese eneloops, but they might look exactly the same as the Japanese, because I only do a performance test on new batteries.

I have old eneloop branded lite version. They are very light weight comparing to regular eneloops.
I prefer them on my new mouse that I use on travel.
