What's eneloop?
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 2100 times.

eneloop combines the advantages of a rechargeable battery and a dry-cell battery
eneloop is a rechargeable battery that can be used as easily as a dry-cell battery, and reused simply by recharging it. It combines all advantages of a dry-cell battery and a rechargeable battery while also protecting the environment.

The new eneloop is rechargeable up to 2100 times
One of the most important specifications of a rechargeable battery is the cycle life, i.e. the number of charge / discharge cycles a battery can withstand without losing its capacity.

Clearly the greatest advantage of eneloop is that is can be recharged up to 2100 times and recycled afterwards. In the long run this is not only more economical it also avoids the waste of 2100 batteries*1.

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 five years later.

eneloop – Clean Energy Loop
eneloop creates a clean „Energy Loop" by being pre-charged at the Japanese factory with clean, renewable solar energy, which makes eneloop even more environmentally friendly.

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.

High performance even at low temperatures down to –20°C
Another great advantage of eneloop is its good performance at low temperatures.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to work! I have only used this once to recharge the existing batteries from my mouse, replacing them with the new ones that came with the charger. So I have not used the recharged ones yet. The charger behaved as expected so have based my rating on that.

Is this a smart charger? Will the charger stop charging or switch to trickle charging when batteries are fully charged?

Asked by: umaT
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS Please charge 2 or 4 batteries simultaneously. (fig4) AA and AAA type batteries cannot be charged by two slots of one side of a charger together. (fig 5) A battery cannot be charged also when it is set by only one battery. (fig5) 1) Observe polarity by matching (+) and (-) on the batteries to (+) and (-) on the charger. For AA battery, insert from the (+) terminal and push on the (-) terminal. (fig 2) For AAA battery, insert from (-) terminal, then place (+) terminal into (+) contact place. (fig 3) 2) Plug charger into standard 100–240 V AC outlet; 3) Charging indicator lights should be lit, indicating that charging is being conducted. If indicator light does not come on: 4) a) Make sure batteries are inserted, making proper contact with terminals in each slot; 4 ) b) Make sure charger is plugged into a working AC outlet. 4) After charging time, shown in Table 1, unplug charger from AC outlet and remove batteries to finish charging. For safety protection, this charger has autooff function after approximately 13 hours, however charging times shown in Table 1 are recommended for longer battery life.

How long does it take to charge 2AA batteries and 4AA batteries please?

Asked by: calliope muse
The standard charging times for 2000mah AA batteries is 10 hours for this charger. There would be no difference in time with either 2 or 4 batteries.
