The discharge curves looks very fine, they are well matched and the cell works fine at any current.

Conclusion
These batteries looks very good and if the specifications are correct they will be some of the top batteries on the market.
But the “free” charger is nothing to talk about.

Actual warranty or BS marketing?

If former, I am wondering how they’ll measure the recharge cycles if RMA’d.

Blf has changed a lot since I've been here. Lots of snow flakes and easily offended over nothing. When the forum use to be great and people joked around and could take a joke. It's a forum it's not that serious. Let's make BLF great again!

That is the question.

It do not look like it, these have slightly more capacity.

I see these marked as 210AAHCB model AA cells. Looks like the same product as the GP AA Recyko+ Minion (NKON link) whose cells are marked 210AAHCEMIN (the MIN is for Minions of course). According to the table here @ GP Batteries looks like the same class GP210AAHC cells, just different marketing bullshit.

Thanks for the review HKJ

If they where sold here from a local supplier they would have to live up to claims 6 years or 1500 recharges under Australian consumer law.

Question is how do you prove how many charge cycles you have done?

They do look decent 2000ma is in the league of standard Eneloops (a little above) and the Eneloops have the figure of 1900 recharges.
