That's true lol.

Just realized that but I had I was going to buy them anyway for my remote controls and for now Eneloops in Canada are too expensive for what they are.

My experiene has not been good. After a few months of minimum use, the batteries were not holding their charge anymore. We do not know where they are made and there are warnings on the max amp it can be charged at, which I found matches only with an IKEA usb charger. I would stay away, eneloops are great, costco.ca has decent deals from time to time.

I was going to buy the amazon basics a couple weeks ago and found this great set at Costco. It's $24.99 in store and Online as well right now. Personally I prefer buying from Costco over Amazon, and put some trust in the Duracell brand. Hopefully the below link works, if not then just search Costco Duracell Rechargeable Batteries

Is it better to use rechargeable batteries for things like clocks, tv remotes etc or just get non rechargeable batteries?

Would these recharge with the Panasonic or Sanyo chargers?

Why even bother. Such a hassle.

I don't want to be in the middle of nowhere using these batteries in my flashlight or headlamp, or camera and have these zonk out. Not worth my time.

Just buy eneloops once and you are done.

I don't know how chatting with Amazon's representatives and getting more AAA's is a bother lol. Even Eneloops die and we can't get replacements under warranty or may have to jump through the hoops to get it. I have two Eneloop AAA's that were left in a BT keyboard maybe for months and they're dead. Still cheaper than buying alkaline batteries in the long run.

I am only using them in remote controls. Nothing mission critical. Totally agree if you need them for camping or whatnot, go with Eneloops but I need more than four and this 12-pack will be sufficient and I'm not going to spend $4-5 on each.

I gave my brand new sealed Eneloop Pro AAA's to family two years back and somehow most of my regular Eneloop AAA's have gone missing (could be in toys or some beauty gadgets) but I don't have more than 12 of them .

I have lots of Eneloop AA's and do love them. I just don't see the point of spending $4-5 each for remote controls.


This is one post I created where I unsubscribed, thinking it would die a natural death. But here you are quoting the obvious so I'm just letting you know my intended use and why I'd love for one of 12 to break down so I can get 12 more shipped to me for free. :)

This and the OP are the only worthwhile things said on this thread so far.
These aren't for ventilators or something, just for mice and remotes. They do their job, they're cheap and replaceable and right now the price is good.
Thanks OP, in for one pack
