About Sanyo

SANYO is celebrating the 5th Anniversary of eneloop by releasing eneloopglitter, a new limited edition pack of eneloop in size AA.

Just as the classical eneloop, the eneloop glitter batteries get pre-charged at the Japanese factory with electric power, which is generated from solar energy. For this reason the batteries are ready to use directly after being purchased. Thanks to its low self discharge eneloop glitter keeps approximately 75% of its initial charge even after 3 years of storage. Like eneloop, eneloop glitter can get recharged up to 1500 times. The batteries are having a nominal voltage of 1,2V and a rating capacity of 2000 mAh. Additionally the limited edition packs include batteries in 8 different glitter colors: purple, pink, orange, yellow, light green, light blue, silver and black,which enables users to pick colors according to their taste or to use colors to remember which batteries are charged and which ones need to be recharged.

Amazing Batteries

I used to keep a set of Duracell Alcalines in every bag because while they didn't give a good surge of power, they had great shelf / bag life. These eneloop batteries can stay in the bottom of the bag for at least a year and still outperform new Alcalines. They seem to provide equivalent surge power to NiMH batteries wile not quite as much pop as Lithiums. Still, you can count on them for a year after you pull them from the charger. The addition of these colors is cute but it also fixes a n i...

I used to keep a set of Duracell Alcalines in every bag because while they didn't give a good surge of power, they had great shelf / bag life. These eneloop batteries can stay in the bottom of the bag for at least a year and still outperform new Alcalines. They seem to provide equivalent surge power to NiMH batteries wile not quite as much pop as Lithiums. Still, you can count on them for a year after you pull them from the charger. The addition of these colors is cute but it also fixes a n issue I had on knowing which were my most recently charged. I was marking them with a grease pencil but now I just go by color code like they use on resistors in electronics. OK, I'm a geek and everyone might not know that color code ... Make up your own. I also use these as backup batteries for my pilot gear.

Very Satisfied

By

When used in conjunction with a good charger, it comes up as a solid performer. Have only used it a few times now, but based on my past experience with Eneloop, this should be just as good. The different color for each battery is a little distracting at first, but I bought 2 packs so then I have 2 in each color, which then help me use/charger/monitor them in pairs, which I like.

Colorful, Convenient, & Capacious

Purchased these to power off camera speed lights. Full charge out of the package and have a faster recycle time than comparable Energizers.

good value

By

from cape may nj  -  Semi-pro Photographer

last longer than ni-cads and hold their charge. i carry 2 extra flash units that i use for aux. lighting, since i don't use them all of the time they stay in the bag unused and with ni-cads they had no charge after a short period of time. i have not had this problem since i switched to these batteries.

I kept accusing my daughter of having some of my Eneloops. After seeing this "Bling" appearance package, I knew I had to buy them for her. No mistaking who's is who's now!

Awesome Batteries

I went with my friend to photograph him on the range and the batteries just kept going. Every shot was with the flash on and they still have a lot of charge left when we got home.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
JODY G  liked the glitter, different from my other batteries so made it easy to grab new from older.
Shopper  do they work with any AA battery charger?
GREGORY G  Try should work fine with any charger. Mine work fine with my non-Sanyo (LaCrosse) charger.
Eric M  These are not the latest generation, right? Right now (April 2012), there is a 3rd generation model, HR-3UTGB, versus these which are HR-3UTGA. Is the only difference the number of recharges being 1,500 for the "A" instead of 1,800 for the "B"?
MARC F  As far as I know, the answer to your question is that the difference is 300 more recharges in the B versus the A.
