Another Battery Question. . .I know what you are thinking!

Has anybody used the "Apple Batteries" Everything else they make is supposed to be superior, I wonder if the same is true for their batteries or if they just took someone elses and put their own label on them?

Apple Battery Charger - Apple Store (U.S.)

I tried some my friend had picked up, I found them to be pretty much the same as the majority of NiMH batteries I have tried. The charger was, well, pretty much the same. Not as good as my Energizer charger.

I would recommend saving your money and buying something else not over-priced because it says Apple on it.

I have eneloops too and they treat me well. I just saw these and wondered if they were anything special.

I'm an Apple fan, but I can't see how their batteries could be any good:

The batteries in the iTouches, IPhones and laptops stink.

The Apple rechargeables are just rebadged Eneloops. Considering you can get 8 eneloops on Amazon for $20 they are not worth the premium. The problem with the Apple charger is that it only charges 2 batteries at a time.
