Panasonic Eneloop 10-pack $19.99 at Costco YMMV

Posted 01-27-2017 by MagnusDUX at 06:51 AM
My Costco (Davie, FL) has and AA 10 pack Panasonic Eneloops for $19.99.
Same with AAA.
AA says it's min 1900 mAH, AAA- 850mAH.
AA are dark blue, AAA- gray.
I couldn't find any reference to them on Costco website.

I don't believe this is YMMV. I think these are the standard kits Costco is stocking now, which come without both battery chargers and C and D size spacers.

There are chinese versions of the Eneloops make sure you dont buy those supposedly they say they retain 65% after 5 years instead of 70 but the performance is worse and they die after 500 cycles which the real FDK Twicells(real manufacturer) last for thousands of cycles. Fujitsu now owns FDK Twicell so they and a few other brands are now also Eneloops. Eneloop was just a Sanyo brand now owned by Panasonic but in an antitrust they werent allowed to own the underlying eneloop tech just the brand and they have had to augment their output with inferior chinese cells tho supposedly some were or still are sourced from Twicell.

Put a long post together about this yesterday.

There are no Chinese eneloops in North America unless you import it.

So you agree everything I said was correct. Smilie Still I dont think anyone(maybe the top knows, do you guys have a chatroom or something to network this stuff or do each of you study all this more than I do? or do you read every single thread even when you may not buy it... man I do like 2 hours a day on this site and I feel like its too much... and I look at every deal LOL but just the first post and usually just a split second till I hotkey close that tab) on this forum knows that Eneloop is not the manufacturer(I didnt know either cause last I read about these was like 5 years ago or more before the panasonic purchase and I bought more than I needed before 3 years ago and still dont need more) and you didnt tell anyone anything either. There are allot of brands that are Eneloops. So if your the expert why dont you list all the Eneloop brands and contribute something....... Also if your in a mood to dominate maybe you should read the whole post and the links(before you put your foot in your mouth). Also I see posts stating that some Panasonic eneloops are rebadged panasonic tech they suspect(and thus would be marked made in japan.)

http://www.survivalistboards.com/...p?t=371986

This is interesting the last gen Fujitsu compared as same as 4th gen Panasonic Eneloop(made in japan) there is now a newer gen of Fujitsu(who owns the eneloop tech).
Amazon Basics which is said to be eneloop compares to older gens.........

Well it seems they did post this info in allot of the Fujitsu threads but I quit reading candlepower like a year before that(2013 then in 2014 it was posted on candlepower then 2014/2015 like months to a year later it was well known by some of the top deal posters on SD) and thought they were inferior(amazing as much as I read and stuff like this still happens and still MassDrop beats me to everything.... too much manpower). I load every deal in a tab and if I think its inferior I close it so I didnt read down into the bodies of the threads to know if they were eneloops and I closed all the Fujitsu tabs obviously cause I had more eneloops than I could use.... still seems some dont know so it cant hurt.

Maybe this is a weakness of my flip method but maybe its faster?

The Chinese eneloops (currently being sold in Australia) are selling from $10-14 including shipping per 8 pack. Shipping could cost the average person about $8 to send them so they are still a good deal. Ok so that explains the good english of the people on candlepower that were testing the Chinese Eneloops either that or the American poster sought them out.
