This seems like a great deal, especially for someone that doesn't have any eneloops.

Contains:
6xAA (2000mah)
4xAAA (800mah)
4xC adapters (you use the AA for that)
4xD adapters (you use the AA for that)
4 unit charger (can charge individually) with USB 1am out
Case

Item# on the receipt is 1185756, not available online.

Thinking of buying a second set, after trying the C and D adapters.
For comparison, Amazon has this [amazon.com] which has 8 AA but only 2 of everything else for $32.49.

Nice. Very similar to a package they offered 4-5 years ago. That one did not come with a case, and had 8xAA and 2xAAA instead. It also had the C and D spacers, which I've not seen in a Costco pack since then. The D spacers come in particularly handy and the new design, which I assume these have, with the screw on bottom makes them very easy and convenient to use. Love my eneloops. The charger has been much improved as well, with the older ones requiring paired charging and the new ones charging any # of batteries at one time.

This will be a nice item when they ultimately put it on sale. I'd predict $6.00 off, so $23.99 some day soon.

Anyone have any experience with these or own this set or the previous one ?

I heard life expectancy pf holding a charge should equal to 3 - 5 years ?

Debating about the life expectancy Vs. getting just bulk AA pack.

My problem with alkaline batteries is leakage. Anything you leave them installed in will eventually be ruined.. Not if but when.

I've attached another photo to the OP - back of the carton, manufacturer claims steady discharge almost to the end (vs Alkaline which declines progressively).

In general, if you only use them for remotes - buy the cheapest possible batteries. This way, they will not stay too long and leak inside the remote.

Best usage for the eneloop is very low discharge for long period of time. Z-Wave/ZegBee sensors for example. Clocks, etc. Regular NiMh discharge even without load within months. These can last years. Eneloop Pro is good for high power applications such as photographer's flash.
