To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have been purchasing these batteries now since about 2006, after being told Of their good quality by a fellow photographer. As a photographer, shooting manual flash I know that I can get about 100 shots on full flash power before batteries are exhausted. As expected. As advertised these batteries can be charged 2100 times, I can attest to that. I am still using my original ‘Sanyo’ eneloop batteries that came wIth the Sanyo charger in 2005. Panasonic took over eneloop in 2009, I have them to (occasionally mixing and matching). I also shoot video, and placed two eneloop batteries in my receiver and transmitter to record audio. I noticed that the batteries went from 3 bars to two in under an hour, but after that I had at least 5 hours of two bars before it went down to one. I had been recording most of the day before I swapped them out (precautionary), haven’t actually left them on till they went flat (maybe I’ll try it one day). These are so good that I have often thought of buying the eneloop black. However, they can only be charged 500 times. But most people aren’t going to charge that many times people say......well I think photographers may well do that. Either way, highly recommended. The only down side, is the slow charge required. When I put them on charge the lights glow green (not red or orange) and that took a lot of getting use to. Confusing initially as I thought they were still good to go, holding charge. The lights go off when fully charged. Anyway, no complaints from me. Still purchasing.
Nach nicht einmal 2 Monaten ist die erste Batterie ausgelaufen. Genutzt wurde der Akku lediglich einmal. Als er ausgelaufen ist war er nicht in Benutzung. Da halten die Billig Batterien vom Discounter länger und sind weniger gefährlich...
I have bought tons of these, and I wish I didn't have to.
My partner keeps buying those artificial candles that require batteries. Normally the fact that the candles need two rather expensive batteries each would limit the number you have, but she has realised I have lots of eneloops in a drawer, and they keep disappearing into these candles!
Then when I need some batteries for myself, I find my partner has put the ones in need of recharge in the drawer. One of those situations where you cannot possibly be right; far better to just take the loss and buy some more to keep the peace!
Oh, and the batteries work really well. And I will admit the living room does look cosy in winter with 12 of these candles going on. But that's 24 eneloops that my camera flashes will never see!
These just work. They hold their charge for a long time. This means they are suitable for use in devices with low power requirements and normal rechargeable batteries self-discharge faster in a few weeks. Ideal for remote controls, or emergency torches (which must work in a years time when you need them) or clocks. Normal rechargeable batteries can't do this as they go flat too quickly. The capacity of them is good, and when tested on my charger (it empties, then charges them three times and records the energy in and out), they exceed the manufacturer's claimed capacity by a small margin.
I bought an 8 pack of these batteries in January 2019 - the spec, up to 2100 charges was really good and overall reviews were good. I have 2 DECT handsets and expected that as each handset takes 2 batteries and I live alone and seldom use my landline, these batteries would last quite a few years. Unfortunately the 1st four set of batteries started to fail after less than 5 months. I struggled along for about 2 months and then replaced them with the 2nd set of 4. The same thing happened with the 2nd set. So within only18 months and after frustratingly short calls, I have had to replace them. I would not recommend these batteries. Additionally, I wrote to the supplier and the company has not replied within 10 days, let alone the promised 2.
I use rechargable batteries wherever it is possible as to minimise waste. I bought the batteries based on the review from Which. I had bought the items at least 3 times during the last 2 years. However, I have at least 5 faulty batteries from them. As the battery costs nearly £1.0 each, I would expect them to last much longer than that. especially it stated on the back of the package, "eneloop" = up to 2,100 Non-Rechargable Battery. They normally work when first being used. As they are pre-charged (as stated, so 2 star for this), I only discovered the faulty one when I need to recharge them. By the time I found out, it is normally over a month. Besides, should I return the 7 workable batteries with the faulty one?
Brought these after having some energizer batteries free from work where they don't discharge as fast as normal NiMh rechargable cells. Of course everyone knows how expensive batteries are and I know that they are marked up significantly by the different retailers having worked at one as a Buyer for 7 years.
Anyway, these have now replaced all my batteries and is great as I can leave them after I charge and can still have significant power left after leaving these for some time. It is especially useful to use in things like torches where they can be left for a while and you can be sure of power when you need it. Saves you rummaging in the dark for batteries to use.
At 750mAh they aren't the most powerful in terms of capacity but it is more than enough for my use. At worst, you just have to recharge that little bit more often. Given the saving of using rechargable cells, I feel that it is worth it.
I usually use Duracell and Panasonic eneloop they are the best brand love this battery they have never let me down in my cordless and in my tv the last for ever i have tried few brand but dor rechargeable they are the best also thanks to Amazon for keeping stock in pandemic thanks for delivering next day god bless
Certainly not outstanding in my experience and one battery has failed totally in less than two years with others giving unpredictable results. Looking at the variable reviews it seems that I have probably been unfortunate, but they do suggest a possibility of inconsistent quality control or provision of poor quality "imitations." to me.
