Trying it out, at 4 bucks for 4, think they are worth it even if they underperform. i have eneloops , amazon basics and LADDAs but again, for the price, nothing to lose.

I mean when it comes to batteries there's actually a lot to lose, faulty cheap batteries can be very dangerous.

But if anyone has more information about these that'll be great.

Wish I saw this before I hit Dollarma this morning.

Can anyone recommend a cheap but decent charger?

I believe the Philips batteries are similar to those of LADDA from Ikea. For your reference, I have AA from Eneloop (MIJ) and LADDA (MIC), bought about the same time, 6 years ago. The Eneloops still retain about 85% capacity but the LADDAs retain about 75% capacity.

The Ladda from Ikea are rebranded Eneeloops.
I doubt the Philips would be rebranded Eneloops at $1 each.

Is it actually confirmed that they are rebranded or is it an assumption/urban legend that people just go with now?

Eneloops are reliable based on experience, i use them on my camera flash.

Cant really say how these are yet, got them for christmas fairy lights. These are prolly good for non high drain applications.

Not necessarily true. Dollarama liquidates stock from other retailers so they prob get these for fractions on the dollar. These are prob one of those incidents that the item is worth more than the $4.

China. Unlikely you will find japanese made batts at that price, still not discounting the fact that these are good.

Philips is not a seal of quality.
They don't manufacture rechargeable batteries.
They lease their brand name.
So maybe they are worth more than $4 but they ain't Eneloops, I'm pretty sure.
