Not bad, Ikea rechargeable are $2.50 each although they're 2450mAh not 2000, so about 25% larger: https://www.ikea.com/ca/en/p/ladda-rech ... -70303876/

Amazon Basics are the same capacity as these Plilips, at about $2.20 each regular price:

I've never seen Philips batteries before but they do seem to produce very high quality LED light bulbs. Their bulbs don't flicker badly like the poorly rectified off-brand ones do. People don't even know that they're getting bad headaches and eye strain because of it.

I'm guessing these are average performance. The three letters that stand out:

You get what you're paying for. Some Eneloop batteries are made in Japan but they are $5 each.

I had some of these in AAA and used them in cordless phones, which is a harsh environment for any battery. Lasted ~3 years, especially being the cheapest rechargeable AAAs I've found at the time (bought from walmart.ca for $8 as a 4 pack). Definitely a great buy if you're looking for some decent rechargeables.

I have seen them in a couple of locations in Montreal. Dollarama didn't have a charger for sale with them.

IKEA Ladda batteries are about $9 for a 4-pack, are MIJ, and very good performing LSD batteries

I bought into the Eneloop hype years ago when they were all made in Japan and people were posting Eneloop deals on RFD. I don't think I've even got 100 charges on most of them and some of them are testing at 1000mah or even 780 mah. Granted they are like 10 years old now, but not even close to the rated amount of recharges. They've been underwhelming, so I just buy which ever is cheaper.

Invest in a good charger with reconditioning if not already and you can probably rescue most of them.

I have a LaCrosse charger to charge and condition all my eneloop and other white top and black top duraloop. The eneloop are good, but some black top don't hold charge anymore. If the batteries are already bad, there is nothing the charger can do.
get what is cheap, not what you need :lol:

Maybe you got unlucky, I still have Eneloops from the early days of RFD and Dell Days of Deals that still hold a decent charge.
