Costco has been selling a 10 pack of the generation 2 Eneloops for around $20. No charger but you should buy a better charger that will charge inividual cells rather than only in pairs. The older Sanyo 4 cell charger with one indicator light charges individual cells.

I just found two packs. One was all white and the other were rainbow colored. Both sets were rated at 1500+ cycles. Any thoughts?

The gen 2 have a crown symbol near the (+) pole indicator. Color of the wrapper means nothing unless they are the XX 2500 mAH ones (will have the double X logo on them).

The XX are rated at 2500mAH. The standard Eneloops are rated at 2000mAH. Gen 2 Eneloops have the crown on them to differentiate them from the older Eneloops. Gen 2 have longer life and more recharging cycles (new formulation). Costco is selling only the gen 2 cells. Some of the sellers on eBay and Amazon may still be selling old-new stock of the generation 1 Eneloop cells.

i've tried duracell rechargeables, eneloops, rayovac hybrid, and sonycycle energy NIMh's in my K100dS and Kx.

the rayovac hybrids worked best, they would last forever.
the sony ones did well (the 2100 and he 2300-2500 both seemed to last about as long)

the duracell and eneloops both lasted noticably shorter.

most important is to get a smart charger (that senses how full the batteries are and can drain them before a charge), not the cheap timer one i felt.

now that i have a K5, i just have a ton of batteries sitting around though.
slightly old post I know, but i was looking at the sony ones today. Not a bad price. Thought I'd give them a try. What kind of charger do you recommend? Is it a sony charger? They've got a 2 battery pack with a small charger, and then the 4 packs of 2500 batteries. I'm not sure how much luck I'd have finding a smart charger here in Korea without a model number to search for.

Maha chargers are good and I have 2 different ones. The F401s charges each individually while the F201s charges in pairs. In Singapore the Maha batteries are branded Imedions and the rating is 2400 MHa while the PowerEx ones are rated 2700.

Wow, that is the high end charger which can help to refresh a dodgy battery. In Singapore, it is at USD$130.00
