I haven't had them long of course, but even out of the package and into my flash, I noticed I could get more pops in a row than I ever could with a fresh pack of other brand rechargables.

Minimizing recycle time is a great benefit for a run and gun type shooter like myself. I never know where the next amazing thing will be and I have to be ready.

I also have a bluetooth mouse that absolutely VAMPIRES batteries to no end. Some of my older rechargables would go only 4-5 hours in it before dying again. So I'm interested to see how long an eneloop will go (over a week so far!).

I got the glitter pack because - well it's just fun looking and it IS nice to differentiate batteries. Set up a pattern of use and you always know which should be charged.

I think I'll have to get a few more packs. The cost is on par with what I'm paying already for other name-brand rechargables and I can use the chargers I already own (per Sanyo's site).

    Comments about Sanyo eneloop glitter AA Rechargeable Ni-MH Batteries (8 Pack):

    These batteries hold a charge for an astonishingly long time. Were formerly available only in black. Now available only in mixed colors. Worth the distraction, if you don't like that much variety of color.

        Comments about Sanyo eneloop glitter AA Rechargeable Ni-MH Batteries (8 Pack):

        Just got these for a photo shoot at a karate school. I was worried about my two flashes going through batteries too quickly, so, bought these to make sure I had enough fire power. I started with these and shot all afternoon without having to change out batteries. That was several hundred shots.

        Iʻm very pleased with the performance of these batteries.

                  Used in digital cameras. They last so much longer than alkalines and other rechargeables.

                      I haven't had them long of course, but even out of the package and into my flash, I noticed I could get more pops in a row than I ever could with a fresh pack of other brand rechargables.

                      Minimizing recycle time is a great benefit for a run and gun type shooter like myself. I never know where the next amazing thing will be and I have to be ready.

                      I also have a bluetooth mouse that absolutely VAMPIRES batteries to no end. Some of my older rechargables would go only 4-5 hours in it before dying again. So I'm interested to see how long an eneloop will go (over a week so far!).

                        Right out of the box, these puppies did have a charge, but it wasn't full, and I find piece of mind in slow-charging them right off the bat anyway. I use high capacity (2700 maH) Powerex as my primary batteries in 3 speedlites, trying to remember to charge right before any sort of important shoot as they don't hold a charge very long. The Eneloop are lower cap but the longer life, makes them great, reliable back-up power.
                        I LOVE the claimed recharge life as well!

                        Plus, the unique color makes them identifiable from the rest of the dozens of AA's rattling around in my bag.

                          I have 6 other sets of 4 Eneloop AA's. I love them because:
                          -They keep their charge longer.
                          -They heat up slower than other brands, which means a lot w/ Nikon SB-900's and SB-910's.
                          -They're good for 1,500 charging cycles.

                          Just couldn't resist the prestige of having GLITTER Eneloops while other photogs "make do" with the boring white ones. Now if they would only bring back the Chocolate Eneloops...

                              I looked around for reviews and kept finding the Eneloops. I finally bought some and right off the bat out of the package they out performed anything else I have used. They are amazing!

                                  Functions as advertised. Great especially for the Marshall on-camera monitor I use - because that device uses up power quickly.

                                  Only note: they don't seem to charge so quickly. Not a dealbreaker, but I was surprised.

                                      I purchased these just before leaving on a river cruise in Eastern Europe and I did not have the experience I expected. They were factory charged, but the charge did not last as long as expected nor have subsequent charges. The problem took place with both my cameras (canons using AA batteries). I do not know if this is a problem with the batteries or my charger or the ships electrical current. However, had the original factory charge been sufficient, none of the other factors should have applied.

                                      I've used eneloop batteries for about four years now for many different flashes - they last much much longer than any other type of battery I've tried and best of all they don't drain away if you have to store them for a while. I definitely recommend these (and kinda love the rainbow glitter...)
