Thread: Who has the best deal on Sanyo Eneloops AA?

  1. #1

    Default Who has the best deal on Sanyo Eneloops AA?

    The local Circuit City has them for $22/8 pack (has been advertized here at 19.99 but apparently they have different prices in different stores, or the sale ended)

    Amazon.com has an 8 pack for $19.99 plus $10 shipping

    I need about two 8 packs

    Isn't Amazon free budget shipping for over $25? I would say get two on Amazon and shipped free.

    hhgregg in Columbus, Oh has 4-pks for $7.99. You can see them on their website but they're available in-store only. My son who attends OSU picked some up for me and I'll have them in my hands Sunday.I hope the dates are good-I forgot to have him check.

    See this thread. Post #21 has the link: http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...d.php?t=164226

    Update: Looks like they're sold out again. The deal here was $14.02 for a "refurbished" (open box) 8 pack. Availability seems to come and go, so might be worth checking this link periodically.

    HHGreg is still the best deal if they are near you, some stores have them at 9.99 for a 4 pack and others have them for 7.99.
    Thomas distributing then has 4 packs for 11.97.

    In other words, no hot deals right now.

    Maybe later? I would think it is a certainty they will introduce higher capacity cells, making current 2000 MaH obsolete and cheap?

    I was near Anderson, IN this weekend and happened to pass a HHGreg store. Stopped in and asked for rechargables.
    After being pointed to Energizer, I asked by name for Sanyo Eneloops.
    Got the answer that they didn't have them.
    On the other side of the salesperson, they were there.
    On the same display, some were marked 9.99 and some 7.99.
    So I am now part of the Eneloop club.

    Now only if I could get these darn packages open...

    At either of the hhgreg stores I have been to they are all at the camera counter while the rest of the rechargeables are on a display on the side wall of the store.
    I don't understand why the difference in price even when in the same store but the last time they all rung up $7.99 and the first couple times they rung up 9.99 and I had to point out the sitcker.

    Circuit City's web site lists them at $27.96 per 8-pack . I'd be wary of so-called refurbished batteries. I do see a few online places have them for $20 or so per 8-pack plus shipping. I guess I'll stick wth $11.99/4-pack at Ritz Camera down the street from me (about $13 with tax) unless I need a large quantity. Unfortunately they only have AA's.

    Meijer sells the Rayovacs for about the same price.

    B/L, thanks for the heads up on BatteryBob. Even better---they've got 2 packs of eneloop AAAs @ $4.19 w/free ship. Excellent deal, and I never seem to find any on the AAAs.

    Although all the 'hybrid' batteries are similar in that they are all LSD (low self discharge) it does not mean they are as good as each other.

    I have tested Uniross Hybrio and Sanyo Eneloop and although the Hybrio have slightly greater capacity (perhaps 50-100mah) I think the Eneloop are superior. They appear to have a higher voltage both at start and under the same load and a flatter discharge curve.

    Does anyone know if Energizer is working on a low discharge rechargeable? I sent back 20 of my Energizer 2500mah AA's as they seemed to all discharge way too fast. They sent me coupons for replacements, but since they are still selling the same 2500mah at stores, it might be a crap shoot that I would get back the same type that I sent back to Energizer.

    If only I could use these coupons for Eneloops. That would be great!

    HHGreg in Atlanta has the AAA packs for $9.99 and the AA packs for $11.99. I stop in there every now and then to marvel at their bed display in an electronics store, and have not seen the price change.

    AF,

    I'll tell you a secret I learned today. Place a small first order with BatteryBob and you will get a 10% off coupon after your first order ships!!! Then order big.

    Hope that helps

    Hopefully. I'd hate to think all that advertising money was wasted. Me, I just want three sets of 4 batteries for my camera, and I prefer them to be different brands for easy identification. However it was nice when you could buy three different brands and still get Sanyo batteries

    Hope it's not a silly question - but why would you want different brands - surely it is easier if they are all the same brand?

    I prefer to standardize on one brand, that way I know I can expect the same amount of runtime out of each set. I just label them to be able to tell them apart.

    Having sets of different brands makes it impossible to get them confused. I've marked them in the past, but different labels are perfect. I'm just looking for basic quality, not ultimate performance. Besides, how do you compare except by buying different batteries and actually using them ? FWIW All the batteries I've tried so far worked about the same for my application.

    Confused? In what way?

    Having them all the same means you can put them together in multi-cell lights - if you had 4 of 1 type and 4 of another and needed 6 cells for something it is 'generally' better if they are the same make / model / capacity etc.

    I rotate 3 sets of 4 batteries in my camera. When I pull one set out to recharge, they don't get confused with any other batteries.

    I rotate sets in the digicam like that, I just label them all so I can tell the sets apart.

    I am sure there are easier ways - like colour coding them with a marker or just keep the charged batteries in a box - if they are all the same make it should not matter which 4 you pick out of the box?
