To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This review is only about the "Pack of 8 with case" combo ASIN B07HZL1ZGS. There is no case. The manufacturer has placed the batteries in a plastic package that might be considered reusable, in the sense that it isn't destroyed in order to open the package but it is in no way "a case" as might be legitimately expected by someone who has bought these batteries many times previously and received a proper, rigid plastic, design specific case with a snap closure and hinged lid. It's just stylised packaging & a disingenuous marketing ploy to advertise them as having a case. The batteries themselves are excellent, I've been using them for years.
Eneloops don't suffer from much self-discharge like cheaper rechargeable batteries which is why they cost more. Self-discharge is the tendency for batteries to lose their charge over time, even without using them or switching on the equipment that they're installed in. For example, you can charge these, stick them in a torch and leave it in the draw for ages then you'll still have almost all the charge available when you need to use it.
Product arrived clearly used as the tamper seal was opened and two of the batteries had creases in the packaging that are consistent marks caused by taking the battery out. Awaiting charger to be delivered on monday to test functionality. Will return if battery fails to charge as expected.
Just tested capacity to compare with no-name batteries and, as expected, these live up to their much lower advertised capacity: 767, 784, 801, 801mAh of 750mAh advertised. Whether they're more honest wrt longevity is yet to be seen, but so far this is a case of you get what you pay for.
Bought this one as I seen so many good reviews on it. Now I only buy this brand of batteries because they brilliant. Mainly using them with my DSLR equipment like my flash. I can take way more shoots than with my other batteries.
We bought them for all our baby toys. They work very well and much longer that the rechargable batteries from another brand. Its not the first time when I purchase them and they never disappointed me so far.
I purchased a pack of these to use in various applications around the house. four of them went in to landline telephone handsets. After five months, they have stopped charging and if I put them in a standard battery charger, they show an "Error" so can no longer be recharged.
