GP ReCyko+ vs. Sanyo Eneloop
« on: December 04, 2007, 05:05:38 PM »
GP ReCyko+ AA (4pcs.) - Php570.00
Sanyo Eneloop AA (4pcs.) - Php580.00

Which would you recommend?

Medyo madami na akong nabasa about sa Eneloops. I'd like to know more about GPs.

Planning to buy 10pcs. - 2 for my shaver, 2 for my toothbrush, and 6 for my battery grip.

TIA.

Oh this one I didn't know.

How about yung mga Eneloops na binibenta sa CDR-King? Japan pa rin kaya yun? Known pa naman ang CDR-King na inaangkat ang products nila from China. ???

just recently bought  a GP ReCyko+. Used it out of the package then it drained fast. i guess its not advisable to use it right away from buying it.

as far as i could remember the 1st time i used the eneloops out from the package it lasted the whole event.  ;)

Is this so? Maybe it needs to be charged first before using, usually that's the standard instructions when buying new rechargeable batteries. O old stock? Plan ko pa naman bumili din ng GP Recyko+. Hows is it after charging? Ok ba ang performance?

Pero yung market ng hybrid batteries is ready to use out of the box kasi 15% drain lang siya ng first 6mos-1yr. Mabagal ang discharge rate.  ;)

Will wait for this before I buy siguro (pero para sure, Eneloops na lang din ang ilalagay ko for my wish list sa company exchange gift).;D

Tnx chief!

Hi,

I just want to know, how are these brands different from Energizer, Kodak and Powerbase batteries? 4pieces for 500++ is a bit cheap compared to 2 2500mAh Energizers.

Thanks!

they are low discharge type rechargeable batteries. the capacity doesn't diminish that fast compared to the regular rechargeables ;)

from Wikipedia.org:

"A new type of nickel-metal hydride battery was introduced in 2006 that claims to reduce self-discharge, and therefore lengthen shelf life. By using a new separator, manufacturers claim between 70 to 85% of capacity is retained after one year, when stored at 20 degrees Celsius (68F). These cells are marketed as "ready-to-use" rechargeables, and are targeted towards impulse buyers and consumers who use their digital cameras only a few times a year. Besides the longer shelf life, they are otherwise similar to normal NiMH batteries of equivalent capacity, and can be charged in typical NiMH chargers

Some brands that are currently available on the market (Nov 2007) are

> Accupower Acculoop
> Ansmann MaxE range
> Duracell Pre-charged
> Energizer e² Rechargeable
> Gold Peak (GP) ReCyko
> Kodak Pre Charged
> MAHA Powerex Imedion
> Nexcell EnergyOn
> Panasonic R2
> Rayovac Hybrid
> GE/Sanyo Eneloop
> Sony CycleEnergy
> Titanium Power Enduro
> Uniross Hybrio
> Vapextech Instant
> VARTA Ready2use

These appear to be available in AA and AAA sizes only, and have less capacity (2000~2100mAh in AA) than the current generation of high-capacity cells (2800mAh, AA)
.

There are only two or three manufacturers of these new type of cells (Sanyo, Panasonic, Yuasa-Delta) most of these brands are rebranded OEMs".

Thanks quixilver! I wish I knew this earlier than investing on my Energizers. Their batteries are a bit expensive. I would want to buy Eneloops and use my Energizer charger but then again, it's always wiser to stick with the brand's own charger. Sigh.

At least today I learned something new. Thanks again!

Is the Sanyo Eneloops replaced the Sanyo Twicell?  I used the Sanyo Twicell since 2000... no issues for me. Performs very well.  I used these batteries for 4x4 racing.  And battery for such hobby is very ciritical, you need to have the right voltage and extimate after a few heats in the race track. I tried GP before, they are ok.  But I would rather go to a battery that do have the heaviest in weight.

I will still go for SANYO...
It's not just a camera, its a Nikon.

if this is so...it would be wise to buy the eneloops since it is manufactured by Sanyo.  You will never know if those rebranded OEMs have the same quality as the Manufacturers brand. ;D

Sanyo Batts are made in Japan, right? How about the Eneloops sold at CDR-King? Japan pa rin kaya, given na most of their products come from China? Medyo malaki din ang price difference sa ibang sellers eh.
