i may have posted this on one of the battery threads a long time ago, but i will create a new thread just in case para maiwasan ang pagbili ng fake na eneloops.  :o :o :o

this time around, mas madami dami naman ilalagay kong links  ::) andami palang klaseng fake na eneloops, may class A copy at may panget na copy din. minsan pati nagbebenta hindi nila alam kung orig or japeks yun binebenta nila.

Napatingin ako bigla doon sa eneloops ko. Thanks Rico, at least mukhang di naman fake yong akin!! Doon na lang kayo bumili sa trusted dealer nyo at double check nyo rin. Most likely in the coming days medyo magimprove na ang fake na yan. Kaya pahirap na pahirap na madetect ng mga ordinary at innocent buyers. Mamaya may CDR labeled eneloops like battery na rin ( pero hindi fake ha, katulad lang).

hindi ko alam boss,eh...i got the 2 sets from mayer's and another i think sa greenhills. kinakabahan nga ako,eh. they look fine apart from that one set na medyo grayish na yun lining sa loob ng positive  :o :o :o not only that but the colors are somewhat different

i got a pink eneloop last night at battery expert for 185 pesos, inalis pa nung babae sa isang set ng assorted colors...so palagay ko orig ito...also got 3 battery cases for 15pesos each to hold my set of 4's, para di naman jologs tignan kasi goma lang ginagamit ko.

got some eneloops sometime ago from an electronics shop at raon which turned out to be fake. The weight was noticeably different from original eneloops. I'll see if i can get the actual weights of fake ones vs originals later. They were ok for the first few months (very light use), but now they hardly hold much charge (compared to originals which were bought at roughly the same time)

Sir Rico, nice share and thanks for bringing this up again. Dumadami pa naman ang mga photographers so more new buyers of Eneloop. It'll be good for them to spot it themselves para hindi sayang ang pera.

Salamat sa share, sir pitbull. Checked my eneloop batteries and they are the second gen. It's genuine I supposed based from the pictures. Got it from Picture City. ;D

it is very disturbing...minsan hindi mo talaga alam kung ano na yun fake or totoo, difference lang ng timbang, ang hirap naman nyan...they are really getting better at their game. malaki kasi market ng eneloops,eh. hindi lang sa photography kaya todo effort sila. ::)

i got the battery holders in cybermall ground floor  :o :o :o

http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?238390-Eneloop-real-or-fake/page3

this one talks about the obvious difference on the first and 2nd gen of the eneloops...



this is how pronounced the fake eneloops' ridges are. the genuine 1st gen eneloops have a slight ridge that is not obvious while the 2nd gen has none at all...

some eneloops are sold in the EU and they will have the EU trashbin etc. , one of my sets has them...

Wow, I have 4 sets already, bigla ako napa-check! So far all of them fits to the original's specs.

TFS, sir Pitbull!  ;)

Are these real?
