New and Improved 1500 cycle eneloop (2000mAh AA / 800mAh AAA)
The new and improved 1500 cycle eneloop is here!
eneloop - ready to use rechargeable battery. Since its launch in November 2005 eneloop has become well-known around the world as it has revolutionized the consumer-use rechargeable battery segment with its unique features.
Rechargeable up to 1500 times
Incorporating new technologies for material, manufacturing method and structure developed through the knowledge gained since the first release of eneloop the number of times a battery can be recharged has been increased by the factor 1.5 to approximately 1,500 times compared to the conventional models. With the ability to recharge the battery more times, the new eneloop 1500 is both more economically competitive and enhanced in environmental awareness as it means the amount of overall battery waste will be reduced.
What is the difference between the "old" and the "new" improved eneloop?
An extra of 500 charging cycles - instead of being rechargeable 1000 times, the new eneloop is even rechargeable up to 1500 times.
Improved self-dischcharge - even though the self discharge of the old eneloop was already very impressive, you can store the new eneloop for 3 years and still it will retain 75% of its capacity.
You need a battery, which is reliable even when having cold temperatures? Before eneloop was suitable for temperatures as low as -10°C - now even until -20°C.
The new eneloop is even more environment-friendly as it is pre-charged with solar energy in Japan.
Ready to use even after 3 years of storage
Rechargeable batteries typically have a self-discharge characteristic which gradually reduces charged energy over time. This is considered the downside of typical rechargeable batteries. It renders them inconvenient since they can not be used immediately after being purchased, requiring the batteries to be charged to start using them and recharged if they have been left on the shelf for a period of time. Since eneloop batteries have a low self-discharge rate, they are pre-charged and usable immediately after purchase like dry cell (alkaline) batteries. The new eneloop battery continues this tradition by using original "super-lattice alloy" for negative electrode material and improvement of materials and structure, a fully-charged "new eneloop" battery can maintain approximately 75% of charged power even after 3 years, ensuring that power is available when needed.
eneloop XX (High Capacity 2500mAh AA)
25% more power than eneloop 1500 cycle batteries
The 4HR-3UWX 4-AA rechargeable battery pack utilizes Double X (XX) battery power by eneloop which provides 2500mAh of performance for long lasting, high power capacity, extreme applications. XX batteries are the perfect choice for powering high current consuming devices such as photo strobe flash lights; providing more than twice the number of flashes per recharge in less than half the time as compared to conventional alkaline batteries! Wireless keyboards, mice, game controllers, radio controlled toys and a range of household devices can all realize extended performance when powered by XX batteries. eneloop XX was developed to excel in extreme conditions where high power performance in very low temperature environments (down to -4 degrees Fahrenheit) is needed. The new XX Nickel Metal Hydride batteries retain up to 75% of their capacity even after one year of storage. Unlike regular alkaline batteries which can only be used once and are wasteful to the environment, the XX batteries can be recharged up to 500 times. They come pre-charged and can be used immediately out of the pack. XX Powered by eneloop batteries deliver reliable, high power battery performance when and where you need it most!
· XX Powered by eneloop, low self discharge rechargeable 2,500 mAh AA batteries
· Provides high power performance down to sub-zero temperatures (as low as -4 degrees Fahrenheit)
· Factory pre-charged by solar energy and ready to use right out of the package
· Maintain 75 percent of their charge after one year of storage
· Stable voltage with longer power life than Alkaline batteries
· Can be recharged up to 500 times
· No memory effects — batteries can be recharged when fully, or partially drained
· Provide long lasting power at a cost less than 4.5¢ per recharge
· Combines the best features of AA alkaline (ready for use) and rechargeable (reusable) batteries
· Perfect for use in powering high current devices such as photo strobe flash lights
The XX battery Powered by eneloop, delivers 2,500mAh of extreme rechargeable power. That´s 25% more power than eneloop 1500 batteries. The XX batteries are ideal for devices that require an extreme amount of power in a short period of time.
DSLR photo flash units are a perfect example. Using eneloop XX batteries will ensure that you have 25% more power to keep your flash popping for a long, long time.
The example below shows a comparison using a high powered, professional speedlite flash unit which was placed on the highest power flash setting. The eneloop XX batteries delivered over 460 flashes with an average cycle time of less than 2.5 seconds; or 24 shots per minute. The regular eneloop 1500 cycle battery provided 360 flashes and the same average cycle time of just less than 2.5 seconds. The conventional alkaline batteries took an average of 7.8 seconds and only delivered 220 flashes.
