    Great battery charger and batteries

    I bought this product to have rechargeable AA batteries for my xbox one controllers. I was flying through normal alkaline AA batteries and everyone knows that even alkaline batteries aren't that cheap. Buying and owning rechargeable batteries is an investment that will pay itself off ever time. The only inconvenience is remembering to charge the batteries. Comparing this version of the Eneloops to the Eneloops Pro, the main difference is how much charge it holds and how many times it can be recharged before seeing loss in performance; 2000mAh w/ 2100 recharges and 2550mAh w/ 500 recharges respectively. Doing the math: Reg. Eneloops..... 2000mAh x 2100 recharge = 4.2 million mAh effectively. Pro Eneloops..... 2550mAh x 500 recharge = 1.275 million mAh effectively. The xbox one controller draws 480 mA to operate meaning: Reg. Eneloop..... 4.2 million mAh / 480mA = 8,750 hours of use. Pro Eneloops.... 1.275 million mAh / 480mA = 2656.25 hours of use. The regular Eneloops has a lifetime operation approximately 3.3 times longer than the pro version. Normal AA alkaline batteries can range anywhere up to around 2600 mAh(sometimes even more) but the mAh is dependent on how much current(mA) is being drawn. Looking at a datasheet for energizer alkaline battery(E91), the effective mAh at a current draw of 480mA is a disappointing 1500 mAh. Honestly, don't waist your money on the pro version unless you absolutely need those extra 550mAh; the only sacrifice for a gamer would be another hour of use per charge. All in all though, great batteries and an excellent charger. Your future self will thank your past self for investing in these batteries.

    Great charger and battery combo pack

    This is a great charger/battery pack for use in toys, remotes, or video game controllers (Xbox/Wii). This pack contains 4x AA batteries, but the charger can also accept AAA. It has one of the best Low Self Discharge rechargeable batteries. The batteries are Made in Japan, so they're of the best quality. The charger is of the smart variety and it uses a trickle/pulse method. It charges and senses each individual battery's level, so no need to charge in pairs. You can charge as few or as many as you want at a time, and mix&match sizes, too. There's a small green light under each battery that shows when it's charging, and automatically turns off when it's done. The downside is it's a bit slow as it takes about 7 hours to fully charge a completely depleted battery. Although, slow charging is good to extend the life of a battery.

    Smart charger but ...

    Good (not great) smart charger. It has separate charging circuits so you can mix AA and AAA and charge 1, 2, 3, or 4 batteries at a time. 7 hours to charge a battery is OK since fast charging is a great way to kill batteries. There are four hidden green LEDs which indicate the state of charge. 2 issues: - Instructions say when first plugged in LED will flash and then go steady as it charges. WRONG! LED glows solid initially. If a battery is "defective" it flashes. LED does go out when battery is fully charged. - LEDs are not under the battery to which they refer so its not easy to determine which battery is fully charged and which one is still being charged. It refused to charge batteries which the La Crosse BC-1000 could charge, but it costs about 1/2 as much.

    I was looking for rechargeable battery packs for my XBox One controllers and Eneloop rechargeable batteries kept coming up as a the best option. I have to say they were right. These batteries were very reasonably priced and each charge has lasted longer than I would've expected. The first charge lasted 8 days of moderate daily use, using it to navigate netflix, youtube and hulu during the day and about 3 hours of Forza/Call of Duty at night. Great batteries! I also love that the charger charges each one individually and turns off each one when its ready. I'm on the second recharge and I'd say they've paid for themselves already.

    Best rechargable batteries

    I read reviews all over the internet before I bought my 1st set of these. From user reviews on here and amazon, to CNET and Consumers Reports. These batteries have a great combination of charge cycles and long lasting. I use 4 of them to swap out in my xbox one controller. Two always on charge ready to go, and they last longer then any other rechargable batteries I have tried in any controller over the years. I bought another set for my nephews Xbox and a third set for my girlfriend. They are both very happy with them as well.

    When the rechargeable batteries from my two-way radios stopped holding a charge I came across this brand through a lot of great reviews. I am more satisfied with these compared to other brands like Energizer and Duracell. They hold a charge for a good while both when in use and in storage. I even bought an extra pack of 8 for a couple of wireless mice and TV remote and keep the spares in a drawer. The charge indicator is really helpful since it lets you know when to pull out the batteries once fully charged.

    Rechargeable batteries are a must now-a-days

    Everybody should have rechargeable batteries in the home. How many remote controls do you have in the house? My three Roku Ultras eat batteries and I'd be buying tons of AA batteries and tossing them in the trash when depleted if I didn't use rechargeable batteries and Panasonic Eneloop batteries are the best.

    As a pilot, I needed batteries I could trust to use at work. I go through about 80 batteries a year in the cockpit. Knowing that safety and efficiency of a quality battery was key, I started doing my research. No matter how I cut the cards, the eneloop kept showing up. And the standard was preferred over the pro! I've been using them for a little over a month and have recharged them daily, and they have yet to let me down.

    Advanced but simple charger at a great price.

    This charger is simple to use but sophisticated enough to protect your batteries from overcharging that will shorten service life. AA batteries will take about seven hours for a full charge and charging will automatically stop when the cycle is complete. The four stations operate independently so you can charge only one battery, or any combination of AA or AAAs. The inclusion of four AA Eneloop batteries makes for a great package price.

    I use these in my Xbox one controllers and they seem to last at least as long if not longer than the Microsoft branded charge and play system. I would recommend these to anyone who still buys non rechargeable batteries for gaming controllers. for remotes for tv's they sell a lite version that is perfect and for high power applications like cameras with flash they sell the pro version.

    These batteries perform better than expected. The recharge unit is unassuming and effective. It does not take long to charge batteries and has a light indicator so you know when the batteries are fully charged. I used one set of these batteries in a flash gun to shoot an all evening birthday party. The batteries powered the flash for continuous burstings without fault.

    Slower charger, long-lasting batteries

    I bought this charger and battery kit to replace an older Energizer kit. I had had it for years, and it was time to upgrade. The batteries do take 7-ish hours to charge, but that may be the secret to how many times the batteries can be charged (2100 times!). So far, the batteries are lasting longer than my old ones, and they work great with my wireless controller.

    If you are constantly buying batteries or even regular rechargeable one's please stop now and get these. I get upwards to 25 hours of play time on a single full charge buts that's dependent on how often I use my mic. They have these and the pro series but I heard that the pro are a little rounder so they may not fit in a tight enclosure such as a xbox controller.

    Compact, Sleek, and Very Functional

    Best features: Charges each battery cell individually, automatically shut-offs when fully charged, and has a sleek compact design that looks good plugged into a wall. One nit-picky criticism: I wish the retractable plug was centered on the unit, which would allow multiple chargers to fit next to each other on adapter-spaced power strips. No big deal though. I love it!

    Bought these to use in a guitar preamp. Space is limited and some rechargeable batteries are actually slightly larger in diameter than standard AA's and won't fit. These fit and work great. The charger is simple and works fine. Nothing special, but does the job. Takes several hours to charge, so you can't be in a hurry. I bought an extra set so I always have a set ready to go.

    Best rechargable batteries I've own. They last very long. We used them for our Xbox one controllers and I can tell you I was spending a lot of money in batteries before. Not anymore They last a couple of months without charging on a normal use. Great. The charger has a LED indicator for each battery, to let you know when they are fully charged.

    Slow charging but can charge a single battery

    I needed a charger that can charge a single battery at a time. For around the same cost as the standalone charger, I decided to purchase the bundle with 4 batteries. Value is great, but was slightly disappointed by the speed of charging (almost 8 hours to get full charge). That being said, I don't regret the purchase as product is solid.

    While they are not inexpensive to buy at first, they will save you money over time as you are not throwing away batteries over and over.Panasonic Eneloop are the best rechargeable batteries I have ever had, they hold a charge even when just sitting, I use these in everything and will be buying more.

    I did a lot of searching reviews for a new way to power my photo equipment. There are a ton of reviews and opinions about rechargeable batteries online. So far I am loving how powerful these Panasonic's' are. They do take a few hours to recharge so I always make sure I have backups. Great investment. Will be buying more.

    Must for Wireless Gaming

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    This is a must if you have any wireless gaming controllers, keyboards, or mice. My controllers and mice chew through batteries every 1 - 2 weeks. With this I don't have to worry about running to the store to buy new batteries. The included charger is a slow charger so I recommend charging overnight.
