Sanyo Eneloop question.

I have seen many posts about Sanyo Eneloop batteries being the rechargeables of choice and I have also seen people say that they are available at Costco.

My question is: do the batteries actually have the word "Eneloop" on them? I have Sanyo rechargeable batteries that were purchased at Costco (in Canada if that makes a difference) but they are labelled Sanyo Ni-MH 2300. The model number on the battery is HR-3U 1.2V and they are size AA R6. Are these Eneloops or just another variant of a Sanyo rechargeable?

Thanks,

Gord

The eneloop batteries are pearl white with large blue print of "Eneloop" on them. I believe their capacity rating is also only 2100mah. Sounds like you have a different Sanyo battery.

Regular NiMh rechargeable batteries are different from your "hybrid" NiMh rechageable batteries that are of the family/category "hybrid"batteries.
They hold the charge longer.
The batteries when sold are labeled "pre-charged"..so, whatever label they might come in (Rayovac, Eneloop, Kodak, etc..) they have that label.
They are called hybrid batteries.

This should be right with the Pre-Charged label.

These are the best rechargable long lasting batteries I have used. And this is the cheapest place to get any batteries.

Agree! I had 2700NiMH before, but definitely prefer the Eneloops. Charging capacity is 2000 mAh btw, not 2100.

About the same price as the Kodak pre-charged you can get at your local Walmart store.

A no nonsence high performance set of batteries especially if used with the 10hr Sanyo charger supplied. I use it with my K200 and would not hesitate recommending them
