About Sanyo AA

The new, improved eneloop... HR-3UTGA (AA)
Eneloop - ready to use rechargeable battery. Since its launch in November 2005 eneloop has become well-known around the world as it has revolutionized the consumer-use rechargeable battery segment with its unique features:
• Rechargeable approximately 1,500 times
• Coming pre-charged, making it usable immediately after purchase
• Its unique design departing from the look of traditional batteries

What is the difference between the "old" and the "new" improved eneloop?
• An extra of 500 charging cycles - instead of being rechargeable 1000 times, the new eneloop is even rechargeable up to 1500 times.
• Improved self-dischcharge. Even though the self discharge of the old eneloop was already very impressive, you can store the new eneloop for 3 years and still it will retain 75% of its capacity.
• You need a battery, which is reliable even when having cold temperatures? Before eneloop was suitable for temperatures as low as -10°C - now even until -20°C.
• The new eneloop is even more environment-friendly as it is pre-charged with solar energy in Japan.

All original SANYO battery packages containing the improved eneloop have the information "Up to 1500 times" on the front.

Better than the other options

Sure, it's a tiny bit of trouble to charge batteries but . . . it's better than buying fresh batteries time and again. Eneloops work better than any others i've tried.

It is as advertised


from Frisco, TX  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I can't really tell if these have more peak power than the standard Sanyos, but they haven't disappointed yet.

have used Eneloops for quite some time with no issues at all. Great batteries that hold their charge better than some other brands.


So Far So Good


from Charlotte, NC  -  Semi-Professional

These were charged out of the box and ready to use. I'm using them in my Canon 580EX II's and I've only had them out twice so far, but they seem to work just fine. Recycle time seems to be just as good if not better than regular Alkyne AA batteries.




from Saint Paul MN  -  Semi-Professional

They keep charged long time


Great alkaline replacement


from Washington, DC  -  Quality Oriented

At first I was skeptical that a rechargeable battery could replace the alkalines I use in my equipment, especially with manufacturers warning that rechargeable will perform so badly. However, these batteries work. My primary use for these is with my Tascam DR-40. I could easily burn through three dozen alkalines in a weekend. I've run some simple tests using my DR-40 and the rechargeables last as long or longer than the equivalent alkalines. I also recommend the Maha PowerEx MH-C801D for recharging these batteries.


Might out last me


from Indiana  -  Getting Started

Haven't had these that long and so I'm still breaking them in. They seem to be doing all that they should be doing.. Have placed these in some night lights in the house and then charging in the morning. If they live up to the 1500 recycles that had been said they may outlive me. I would buy them again and may do so in the future


Great batteies


from Gretna, La.  -  Casual Photographer

These are the best rechargeable batteries I have ever used. Hold a charge for a long time and seem to discharge at a longer rate.

Very fast cylce times SB800

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
ALLEN H  1. 1500 charge cycles 2. Holding 75% full charge for 3 years
marlane t  can these be recharged using any AA battery charging unit?
DARINA B  Hi Marlane, In regards to your question my answers is no, I wouldn't charge these batteries in any charger. You have to note they are 1900 mAh and any batteries under 2000 mAh are considered low-discharge batteries. They need a proper charger to use their full capacity afterwards. My favorite charger for example (Powerex Maha MH-C801D) can do standard charging for my 2700 mAh batteries and it can also do soft-charging for the 1900 mAh (two different modes of the charger). I am always very careful choosing a charger as that will determine the performance and life of the batteries. I would recommend getting the original charger, or if you are looking for a better quality bigger charger like mine for 8 batteries check out the Maha charger. I highly recommend it.
