Good deal, but this is not as not as nice as the previous eneloop kit that Costco offered that had the "C" and "D" cell adapters, and the included fitted case.
TU, and rep'd. Thanks OP!

Great starter kit for the most commonly used batteries. I bought some extra eneloop batteries, Amazon has some good ones that are higher power rating than these batteries, and I no longer purchase batteries which I throw away later.

This new kit includes a quick charger (3-4 hrs) vs the old kit that takes much longer to charge the batteries

As these batteries would hold charge for years, there is less a need for fast charger.

after digging around on the panasonic battery website, the BQ-CC17 is listed as the "advanced" charger and the BQ-CC55 is listed as the "quick" charger. The only difference I could find is that the "advanced" one takes 7-9 hours to charge and the "quick" one takes 3 hours. Everything else looks the same, (both can charge any combination of 1-4 AAA or AA batteries, and both have charging indicator lights, both can charge fully dead batteries or just top off partially charged ones) so IDK why the word "advanced" is even used.

Pardon my noobness but is there any difference between these blue AAs and the white ones sold on Amazon? Picked up an 8-pk of the latter for my speedlight and they are awesome so far.

Here is a review by NLee, an engineer who is renowned for doing his in-depth reviews of battery chargers on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/review/R217YKQZZRIRTW/

In short, he believes it's the best Eneloop charger he's ever tested. The biggest difference between the previous model is the speed of the charging, which he notes should minimally effect battery lifespan (though the Ultra-fast style of charger which charge in 30 minutes or less will drastically reduce lifespan of batteries):

Quote from NLee the Engineer :
For example, suppose you are charging some 2000mAh AA cells. The charge time will be around 1.5 hours for 1-2 cells (because 2000mAh / 1400mA = ~1.5h), or 3 hours for 3-4 cells. This is significantly faster than the previous model Panasonic BQ-CC17, which takes around 7 hours since its average charging current is only 300mA.
If you already have the BQ-CC17, he says:

Quote from NLee the Engineer :
If you always have a spare set of LSD batteries in standby and never have to wait for batteries to be recharged, then the BQ-CC17 serves you perfectly. But if you ever need batteries charged faster (such as while traveling), then the BQ-CC55 is a much better charger. Not to mention the pretty LED lights.
It looks like Eneloop has finally started bundling a good battery charger with their starter kits.

This charger is retailing on Amazon with 4 AA's for $32.49, so the Costco deal is a great value if you need a quality charger with individual LED and independent charging.

"Advanced" charger vs. "Standard" charger is the advanced charges cells individually, where standard charges in pairs.
