I bought Eneloops and also Amazon batteries. I find that Amazon ones don't fit into many of my devices like l keyboards+mice from Microsoft and Logitech and that infuriates me. So I suggest you don't go all-in on Amazon ones

This.

Since not everyone knows I thought I'd add that they are the same quality as the Eneloops coming from the same factory in Japan. Can't beat the price.

Not sure about their charger though. I use the Opus BT C3100. Can properly measure true cell capacity and it also charges Li cells. May be overkill for some but you can find similar quality with fewer features for less $$.

In the past, the eneloops with the white tops were the good ones (made in Japan) and the ones with the black tops were of lesser quality (not sure where they were made...maybe China). I don't know if that's still the case as I have lots of good rechargeable batteries currently and haven't bought any in a while.

I am in the same boat as you, haven't bought any in years after buying them on sale at dell

I'd like to replace a few but I heard there are bad ones in the bunch so I am not sure which ones to pick up

is it really worth the 10$ difference?

https://www.amazon.ca/AmazonBasics-AA-H ... mp_s_a_1_6
If it's anything like their disposables, then they're very poor quality. I recently bought amazon basics AA disposables and also bought some Duracell. I did a test against each other on a portable camping light (which eats batteries so was a fairly quick check). The Amazon batteries lasted less than half the time, and started off delivering less power than the duracells too.

I used to buy amazon batteries but have stopped because they're just terrible. I was having to change them in kid toys constantly and the name brand ones really do work better and are worth spending more money.

Not sure if this applies to rechargeables though.

I don't even buy eneloop pro's anymore. Everyone that I have bought has refused to charge after a short period of time, while every standard version battery is still going strong and cycling no problem. Also, I think they are rebadged, but I have started to buy the ikea ones now and they have been great so far.
Please check my feedback:

From what I recall, aren't the new line of IKEA rechargeable batteries a step down in capacity?
Not sure if the number of expected cycles went down as well, or quality?

Stopped buying from Dell three years back after I was unsuccessful in getting back a qualified rebate.

yeah, this happened to me with the Pros. I have a newish set of Ikea Hi-capacity ones and if these fail too, they will be my last set.
They start to register high internal resistance and they will not charge in my PowerEx charger or my cheap Duracell charger.
