Rechargeable AA

So I need to stock up on some more rechargeable AA batteries and wondering if the white wrapped eneloops are still the go to ones.

Pretty much, but lookit the label. Made in Japan good. Made in China bad.

Just stick with the standard cap Eneloops in whatever color wrapper you prefer, as they make lots of colors and motifs.

They offer substantially more ‘life’ than the higher capacity Eneloop Pros, or similar, which die a relatively quick death due to high I.R.s, than the standards.

I had a lot of LSD/HSD high caps and they’re all mostly dead now, so I’m sticking with ~1900mAh Eneloop/Fujitsu/FDK batteries here on out.

I’ve been using Bonai batteries for a while- they’re cheap.

If you are near an IKEA I would recommend the LADA 2450s. Of course they are like the Eneloop Pro’s so the point about useful life may be valid. However, I think the quality of your charger and charging practices are more likely to effect the useful life. In any case, for a flashlight, I prefer the extra capacity. I have white made in japan Eneloops that have degraded significantly over time – on par with and actually worse than a couple of energizers so I am not convinced that there really is that much difference.

I bought some of the amazon ones a few months back and I felt like they drained faster in use and the sitting power drained more I felt like.
