Costco Sanyo Eneloop Rechargeable batteries (8) AA (2) AAA + charger + 2 C & D Adapter for $19.89

Local Costco here in Tukwilla, WA has the eneloop battery back on sales for $19.89 + tax here in washington. Comes with everything mentioned in title. Costco item number 704479.

Please call your local Costco before you head out. This price maybe local but hopefully it is everywhere else as well.

I just bought a set, I hope they go on sale here because then I will bring my receipt and get the difference. I don't know much about Rechargeable batteries but these seem pretty good.

This has been posted a few times already in the past. You should probably note B&M and YMMV in the title.

Go to Staples clearance.

I got 8 AA Duracell rechargeable battery for $6. It is Made in Japan and 2450 mah.

If it was 2450, it probably is not the stay charged type so basically worthless.
And I think even the white top duracell is just the 2nd generation eneloop.

My device like my wireless kb and mouse use these battery. My alarm system run on this battery. Should I get the high capacity type or the lower capacity?

YMMV. I went to another Staples and they don't have it.

The higher capacity will be lost after 2 months, unless you always charge the battery then use it up immediately, you should only buy eneloop/stay charged battery in all cases.

The newest eneloop have XX type which have higher capacity and still keep the charge but the duracell one certainly is not that type.

for devices that are low drain just use normal alkaline.


eneloops are good for devices that have an unpredictable use schedule and are fairly high drain. (like emergency super bright led flashlights)

It's not the capacity that matters in the long run, but the charge retention and the battery memory. The eneloops and the re-branded eneloops (such as duracell white tops/made in japan) retain the charge for a longer period of time and can be recharged up to or near the maximum capacity for years (approx 1000 cycles) with a longer life span, unlike the other batteries that deteriorate faster over time...

These are usually 'white tops' and 'made in japan'

I see.

For my device that is always draining, it is good to get those higher capacity battery right?

Otherwise I would have to charge it every 2 weeks.
