Depends on how you use them. I, for instance, seriously doubt that I will *ever* hit 500 cycles on one of these batteries. Just do the math for yourself assuming you keep them for 10 years.

500 cycles/10 years = 50 cycles per year
365 days per year/50 cycles per year = ~7 days per cycle

So unless you are recharging once a week, every week for 10 years, you will never hit 500 cycles.

As to the charge they hold at one year, remember that it is a percentage. Perhaps the better way to look at it would be to use the actual charge in mAh, assuming the 800 and 950 mAh values.

Non-pro after 1 year = 800 mAh * 90% = 720 mAh
Pro after 1 year = 950 mAh * 85% = ~810 mAh

So after one year, even with the lower percent, the Pro's will hold more charge than the non-pro's do when brand spanking new. With that said, I agree that most people don't need the pro's. This deal comes to $2.84 before tax/shipping per battery on the pro's. I just bought a 12 pack of AAA non-Pro's for $1.89 per battery ($22.69 total) before tax/shipping. You can also do an 8 pack of the AAA non-pro's for $1.92 per battery ($15.38 total) if you don't need a dozen.

If you don't plan to use them in devices that really need the extra capacity, the non-pro's seem like a no brainer.

If you have an IKEA near you, supposedly their batteries are made by the same manufacturer as these. I think they are $6.99 per 4 pack

Made in the same factory doesn't mean anything, made in the same production line in the same factory doesn't mean anything either.

All iPhones are made by Foxconn previously, doesn't necessarily means all the other phones(Huawei, ZTE, etc.) made by Foxconn have the same quality standard.

The IKEA LADDA batteries are also made in Japan, and someone deduced they are even made in the same factory as the Eneloops.

The only difference with the LADDA batteries is that they seem to require pre-conditioning to match the out of box performance of the Eneloop Pros. If you have an IKEA near you, they're a much better deal than the Amazon (second) lowest price.

preconditioning? that doesn't make sense. that would make them not the same as the eneloops.

Very interesting article. But what exactly does 'preconditioning' entail?

Kind of a rookie question but how come these say it can only recharge up to 500 times whereas the regular white ones say they can recharge 2100 times? The regular ones also holds 70% charge up to 10 years vs 85% for 1 year for the pro. Am I missing something? It seems like the non "pro" kind is the better option.

The regular ones hold 800 mAh while the pros hold 950 mAh.

Is that the only difference? If so, it would seem like the over 4X recharge capacity would be better for most uses.

Pros are designed for high drain devices where you would typically use lithium.

Depends on the devices you use them in. Some things won't need more than 100 charges.
