    Will the charger that came with my Panasonic Eneloops safely charge a pair of 14500 batteries? Thanks for your advice and help.

    Hello Roymail,

    What is the chemistry of your 14500 batteries?

    Eneloop chargers only work with NiMh.

    Finally Panasonic added another battery charger to their curren lineup.... in Japan.....
    It's quite an interesting one I have to say. (charger + powerbank + flashlight in 1)
    Instead of a normal power cord, you can charge batteries using a USB charger! (Cord included, not the USB charger)
    Plus they added a flashlight as an attachment so you'll be able to have light during emergencies!

    Eneloop101 got a facelift.
    Please have a look and let me know if you find any problems.
    It looks a little 'cleaner' and 'fresher'.

    I installed new 1st gen Eneloops in my twelve Hunter Douglas brand window blinds in January of 2011. Each blind battery carrier uses 12 cells. All 144 cells are still their job perfectly. I've not had one cell failure. They get charged about every 8 months so not many cycles but a fair amount of time.

    That's some great reference! 8 years without any problems. I'm just curious what charger you use/chargers. Charging 12 at a time can take some time. 24 even more, but imagine all batteries going flat around the same time...

    Hi,

    I am thinking of using the Eneloop/Ikea Ladda (those high performance type) on my wireless headband mic. The distance will be around 5 meters, with not much obstruction, and relatively same position.

    Has anyone been using this batteries in this sort of setup? How long can the battery last?

    Any advise is very much appreciated.

    Regards.

    For most of those years, I used a combo of 2 Maha C9000's and 1 Maha 808. The 808 died so replaced it with the 8000 and it died so got another 808. Now I'm using 4 C9000's and the 808 to charge two "units" at one time - 24 cells. I charge all at 1 Amp rate. Some blinds are used much more than others so not that many need a charge at the same time.

    I also have 1 of the SkyRC 3000's but it's to complicated for inclusion in the Eneloop charges. I use it to charge my many 18650's and 21700's.

    Great Stuff BVH. Your desk must look like a laboratory then, haha!


    PS. There hasn't been any new Limited Editions or a new generation of batteries unfortunately. I got myself some Amazon Eneloops from Japan, which are just eneloops but instead of having a blue font, they have a black font. Besides these, I also got a BQ-CC87 charger.

    I recently bought Japanese made Panasonic Eneloops. They aren't performing as well as Eneloops of old. First cycle shows around 1650mah. Did two more cycles and end up with around 1850mah. Below the min rated 1900mah. (Used Maha C9000).

    Does it need a break-in or just more cycles?

    Usually I get that capacity as well discharging them at 500mA. A break in would most likely raise the capacity rating but at that point I think a break in wouldn't fare well for the Eneloops. I dont know because they are LSD and a break in would overcharge the cells. I'd just use them, a constant discharge generally gives you slightly lower capacity on the C9000. Maybe use them regularly and then cycle and see how much capacity they got. I haven't tried this as I got other brand cells that I've been using. My Eneloops are still used infrequently, but recently been using a pair in this bug zap it. I actually had to recharge them too for the first time in 5 years lol.

    Looks OEM to me? Failing that, do you have a place you prefer?

    Except for when I've found a good sale from another authorized source, I typically have purchased from Thomas Distributing.

    I don't recall ever seeing Pro's in 2-packs

    Incidentally, other than a couple of very specific cases with a need for the "Pro" , I have almost entirely moved back to the "standard" eneloops.
