I have collected this info over the last couple of years and wanted to share the info here.
In the table above, at a certain point eneloop decided not to RATE the batteries anymore, but only mention the Minimum mAh. therefore I copied the Min. into the Rated box
Reading the manufacturing date:
On the side of every original eneloop battery you can find a date code embossed. You can decipher it.
The code doesnt have any color, so you might have to look really up-close.
the first 2 numbers indicate the year: 08=2008
the next 2 numbers indicate the month: 03=March
So, these HR-3UTG batteries are made in March 2008. (the 1st generation)
Please feel free to comment on anything you see, if there are any spelling mistakes, better descriptions or whatsoever, please let me know, so I can update the list.
I made this list for a good overview, as people ask about Eneloop batteries in many threads..
