    Default lost 1 eneloops battery, how?

    hi to all sempais. I dropped my speedlight down a stairwell due to butter fingers. it was destroyed but annoying I can't recover the last missing eneloops battery.

    would anyone be able to tell me where I can buy just one unit battery? I don't want incomplete set

    how old is your batteries?
    if it is old, as it more than a year or two, just downgrade to use it for other purpose, buy a new set of batteries, cos aged batteries don't hold charge as good as new batteries.

    Agreed, I don't think it's recommended to mix batteries with different ages, as capacity changes with age too.

    General Guidelines:
    - Do not attempt to charge primary (non-rechargeable) batteries (i.e. alkaline, carbon zinc or lithium)
    - Do not mix battery chemistries
    - Do not attempt to recharge alkaline rechargeable batteries using an Energizer® charger
    - Do not mix fully charged and discharged batteries
    - Do not mix batteries of different capacities or age

    CAN I MIX OLD AND NEW BATTERIES?
    Do not mix old and new batteries.
    Doing so will reduce overall performance and may cause battery leakage or rupture.

    Now they have a pro version. So you can just replace the whole set
