[size=+3]Conclusion[/size]

The batteries works as expected, i.e. the are rated for low capacity and match it. Being low self discharge they may be practical for some low current applications.

I don't see the point of such a low capacity battery.

It's so that armchair environmentalist can claim they're using "green" batteries made of (some) recycled material. Total BS argument, since using reusable Eneloops is far better for the environment. IMO, it's just Energizer capitalizing on the "green" craze, without actually doing anything.

That is what is suspected. These seem like a huge step backwards.

Of course, Energizer must have done market research on the viability of these batteries.
