    Just a heads up, there's another eBayer selling these batteries now.

    You can find his auctions if you search "coloured eneloop"... They start at $32.80, and have a buy it now of $36.80, which is quite competitive to me. Don't think any of the auctions have ended above $36, so it's an alternative for you peeps. I got mine @ $34.40 haha.

    Actually.. with eneloop, why need quick charger.. juz a personal opinion.

    traditional rechargeable batteries will lose their charge when stored. Hence, pple needs to charge their batteries just before usage. Using a quick charger is kinda more convenient as no need to wait so long for it to charge.

    But with technologies like the eneloop, the batteries can hold their charge for long periods (that's why they're sold pre-charged).

    This means that, after usage, just throw it on the charger and let it takes its own sweet time for it to charge.

    And it'll always be "ready-to-use" when the need arises.

    i actually read that quick chargers kills your battery faster...

    any charger that promises to charge your batteries within 2 hours is causing damages to your batteries in the long run.

    Agree. That's why my current eneloop charger is still the old model which requires 10hrs to fully charge 4 X AAs.

    I just bought a charger and 4 eneloop batteries which can fully charge at 6 hrs time for $27 from Desmond (techpoint). I did not opt to buy the fast chargers for the fact that they kill the lifespan of your batteries easily. btw the total damage is $50 for both the charger and batteries.

    the charging time for the quick charger is at 2hours, 4 batteries i believe would be 4hrs? how long is the charging time for x04 AAs for the normal charger u bought??

    less charging time = less time spent = more time saved = higher cost, ^^$$

    If that is your main usage pattern and you require the convenient of fast charging, why get a battery with charge retention like the eneloop? it's less capacity and more expensive.

    Just buy normal NiMH rechargeable.. like the GP ones for e.g. 2700mAh and cheaper..

    ng then charge
    Yeah I agree with you and maybe you can add something like this:

    less charging time = less time spent = more time saved = higher cots=less lifespan for the battery.

    I drained the battery after buying(went out to test) then charge it and it was fully charged after less than 6 hours.

    Yeah for 4 batteries. I would not say that it was fully drained but I used it with my flash and after maybe 70 shots then I noticed that syncing time for my flash is already slow so I presumed that It is almost drained already(according to what I read, it is about 80 shots for the battery to function well then it needs to be charged again).
    Hope this helps!!! Im a noob also so sure if this has drained the battery. BTW, I used the battery after buying because its pre charged already

    I dun believe in quick charging as I do not want to 'kill' my battery too fast. I always charge overnight so no issues with that, even when traveling.

    There is another variant. It has the 'recycle' logo but not the dustbin. I got mine delivered by the van recently, was told it is the new version.
