Are the Uniross LSD? (I have never heard of them) Also what is the rated capacity and how many cycles?
Also it depends on your charger as some cheaper ones wont fully charge batterys and will just cut off when they are close enough. I don’t own AAA eneloops myself though so I don’t have experience with them.
As for the reason to “why eneloop?”, because they are tested and proven and available all over the world at a relatively low cost.
If the Uniross are good then stick with them if you like them but I doubt they have much availability globally so its not something you could recommend to many people to use.
They arrive charged and can be used out of the packet. They have a low internal resistance therefore keeping their charge longer.“Garanteed to have 80% after 3 years” from memory. I know I can leave a flashlight fitted with eneloops in my car for a long long time and it still works great when needed.
I s’pose you might be right about re-branding, Uniross are fully charge out of the packet and the charge lasts a long time. I’ve had a couple in the front door bell for the last two years, have never recharged them and the bell still goes ding dong.
Eneloop 800 mAh are at least twice the price here compared to Uniross 1000 mAh , Whatever
Eneloops can be had for around £8 a pack from 7dayshop, and for £6 a pack in Sainsburys re-badged as ‘Duracell staycharged’. They are just higher quality, more robust etc.
I’m not familiar with those Uniross cells, but I would assume they are a rebranded version of the cheaper China made LSD if they come pre-charged. They are almost certainly over-rated in capacity, and while holding a charge better than normal LSD will probably self-discharge noticably faster than eneloops. Eneloops will probably fare better over repeated charge/discharge cycles as well. I’m not saying the ones you’re using are bad, but eneloops are simply better quality cells.
Whoops, according to this report the Uniross outperform the Eneloop. I’m using the 1000mAh Uniross though not the 800 mAh … Whatever, they are all much of a muchness to me and I’m happy with what I have
There once was a battery called Eneloop. Who could run longer than anyone in any loop. He wouldn’t have supposed to have sold more than gold, but quite rightly has won kudos from young and old.
Bottom line, Eneloops are trusted because of their consistent performance over the long haul. A lot of these other batteries tend to have shorter lives or don’t live up to their inflated specifications.
