Sanyo Eneloop is now known as Panasonic Eneloop after a recent company takeover. Eneloop batteries still have the same great performance and capacity that is respected the world over. Now in Panasonic colours.
High-demand electronic devices like digital cameras, flashes game controllers and wireless keyboards can drain conventional rechargeable AA batteries in no time, which is frustrating and could cost you that perfect shot or level up. When you need your battery-operated equipment to function for long periods of time, you need batteries with high capacity to meet those demands. Furthermore, you need power that can be charged, loaded into your devices and still deliver power when it's needed, even days or months later. These Eneloop XX batteries from Sanyo deliver both the capacity and charge retention to meet the needs of professionals and serious amateurs who depend on their equipment for success. Not only that, they're shipped pre-charged, so they're ready to use right out of the 4-pack.
Sanyo's Eneloop NiMH technology produces power cells with a very low self-discharge rate. In other words, these batteries retain their power well when stored and unused. While inferior batteries may lose up to 2% of their potential energy in only 24 hours of storage, Eneloop cells retain as much as 85% of the initial charge after 12 months and up to 70% after 3 years. That breakthrough is both the reason the batteries can be shipped fully charged and the reason they're well suited to high demand applications with intermittent use. They'll provide power in extreme cold, too – as low as -20C. Because they'll last for up to 500 charging cycles, these high-capacity batteries are an excellent and cost-effective way to replace single-use batteries or rechargeable NiDd or alkaline cells. They're also a great way to "go green", since they're recyclable when they've finally outlived their usefulness. They're chargeable with standard NiMH chargers, but Eneloop chargers are recommended, to protect the manufacturer's warranty.
If your work or play demands high capacity and long life from the batteries that run your equipment, these should be high on your list of choices. If you're environmentally conscious, you'll be pleased to know that Sanyo uses solar energy in pre-charging them. Switching to these rechargeable batteries is a move you'll be proud to make.
