Has there been any updated testing on recent Made in China Eneloops to see if they have improved??

AAcycler did a test on the JP eneloop lite vs CN eneloop lite, and th JP clearly won. I havent seen any recent test for the std eneloops.

 Anyone know if the BK-3MCC are still made in Japan?  I ordered some a couple of weeks ago but they have not arrived  yet.

The BK-3MCC are the ones sold in Japan. If things havent changed in the past weeks they are surely still made in Japan. 

It`s different if you are talking about the BK-3MCCA or MCCE. The MCCE might be made in China, depending on where you ordered them.

That helps, thanks.  They have been mailed from Japan too.  I will remember now not to choose the ones from China if they haven't proven themselves yet.

If they are directly from Japan you should be good.

They've be shipped from Japan over 3 weeks ago so hopefully they are going to come soon.

3 weeks is about normal. Usually depending on the mail system in the destination country. Avg is 2-3 weeks.

Got them finally after 5 weeks.  They came charged and turbo last much longer with these in my EA81 than the alkaline batteries.  They really seem to be worth them money.

Which is rather interesting. My in-laws sent us something from Japan a few weeks ago, and told us they don't have the slow shipping option anymore, so 5 weeks is really long! But I'm glad you got them!!!!

I got them from an ebay seller in Japan, but it did finally arrive thankfully!

Was looking at your where to buy list but nothing really for Canada.  Your Amazon US link will ship to Canada but still ends up being nearly double the price of the Japanese ebay sellers for eneloop.  Tried your NL link too but same thing, way too expensive with shipping.

In Canada, I usually buy them on-line from Costco:

https://www.costco.ca/CatalogSearch?keyword=eneloop&pageSize=96

They usually go on sale about once a year. They’re more expensive than in the US (as almost everything is), but still not a bad deal considering how long they last.

They’re also in some of the stores in Canada, but come with a charger kit. If all you want is the batteries, on-line is a better deal.

BTW everyone, I tried to migrate eneloop101 to HTTPS, so please adjust the links that you have to eneloop101.com to the HTTPS version. I hope it's working now. 

 

Thanks Walkintothelight for helping out klrman.

Wow, I wish I would have known that before ordering from Japan.  Even those Costco prices are good for Canada, thanks!!!

Yes, and BTW, the Costco Eneloops are made in Japan. So, you don’t have to worry about getting the Chinese Eneloops like some places might sell.

I bookmarked that link  to keep an eye out for that once a year deal you mentioned and will buy quite a few more from Costco, thanks again!

But made at the eneloop factory with about the same performance as a eneloop.

I thought its performance was on par with older generations of Eneloops, not the current generation.

I do not know if they keep production lines with the old process running, but I added a “about” to my sentence to avoid any quibble about possible minor differences.

Thanks for the warning about the eBay fakes.

I am starting to need more AAAs, dagnabbit.
