Developed by Sanyo in 2005, Panasonic (Sanyo) Eneloop is the World’s most recognisable Rechargeable Batteries.
Sanyo Eneloop batteries combine the strengths of disposable and rechargeable batteries into a single product that is Ready to use, Rechargeable and possesses a long storage life.
Eneloop is the perfect, long-life, pre-charged, energy and money saving, recyclable rechargeable battery which can now be charged and discharged even up to 1800 times.
Since its launch in November 2005 eneloop has revolutionized the consumer-use rechargeable battery segment with its unique features.
The new eneloop has an even lower self-discharge
eneloop batteries have a low self-discharge rate and are therefore just like dry cell batteries immediately usable after purchase. Not only are they ready to use after purchase – they also keep their charge. The graph clearly shows that in comparison with other high quality rechargeable batteries, eneloop retains 70%*1 of its charge after 5 years of storage and does not require periodic recharging. This means that you can be sure your device is always ready for use. No matter when you charge eneloop, you can count on eneloop supplying the power that you need, even three years later.
eneloop is universally usable
From digital cameras to MP3 players on to remote controls: eneloop is the ideal universal power supply for almost all of your household devices, even for applications that until now have run on alkaline batteries such as game consoles.
You no longer need “special batteries“. eneloop is powerful enough to run all these applications without any problems.
eneloop has higher usable capacity than standard batteries
One of the main features of eneloop is the higher voltage level. Many applications switch off or show the low battery signal if the voltage is lower than 1,1 Volt. A traditional Ni-MH battery will lose its voltage constantly and runs under this critical level very soon. eneloop however will keep the voltage level over 1,1 Volt for a long time, and only just before becoming empty will fall under that limit. That's one of the reasons why you can take more photos with eneloop.
