Had these in my cart when they dropped down to 12.20. Few bucks off the normal price but still a great deal for what many suspect to be rebranded eneloops.

one of the most recent in depth amazon reviews states " There were many speculations that these are regular Eneloops (as opposed to the pros which are rated 900mAh+). It's not the first time this has happened, and I have purchased similar rebranded Eneloops in the past (such as some old Duracell NiMH). The fact these are made in Japan limits the number of suppliers available, and that they hold over the stated capacity is also something that's almost exclusive to Eneloops. Finally, it's also said that while Panasonic owns the Eneloop brand, Fujitsu still has the right of production, and have been making them for the likes of Amazon, IKEA, Duracell, etc."

i haven't seen definitive proof either way personally but they seem to be just as good if they're not the real deal

Is there a life to rechargeable batteries where you have to replace them or can you just constantly recharge them?

New Slow discharge NiMh batteries can take 2000+ cycles. They do wear down somewhat over time, but it's nothing dramatic.

Are you kidding me? They're not that different cumulative review wise.
Amazon AA: 71% 5-star, 6% 1-star..
Eneloop: 84% 5-star, 4% 1-star

Come on, really? Read the frickin product description.
>1,000 recharge cycles​
I wouldn't really bet on ANY battery lasting more than 4-8 yrs, but it's possible in the right conditions.

could be a variety of factors including less informed customers leaving reviews over different versions of amazon basics batteries or complaining about the inferior amazon basics charger. overall rating is pretty similar between brands at 4.3 and 4.6 . regardless amazon reviews are hardly evidence for either case. if they're indeed knockoffs they're close enough to have a widely spread debate over a period of time.
