eneloop glitter Limted Edition

Life is full of colors. Can you guess what is these colorful things?


You will never have guessed these are batteries. Not just any batteries but eneloop Rechargable Batteries.


These colorful glittering set is a Limited Edition eneloop rechargeable batteries from Japan celebrating their 5th anniversary and sold 150 million batteries over 60 countries!

These set of 8 batteries come pre-charged which mean you can use it straight away. The pre-charging process was done by solar power as SANYO believe in "Clean Energy Loop". Each of these batteries can charged up to 1500 times.


One major concern about rechargeable batteries for me will be the self-discharge rate even you are not using it by leaving it on the shelf. Most rechargeable batteries would drained of it own energy in 2 years but eneloop batteries can retain 75% of it's energy even up to three years! These were confirmed by 2 of my contacts in different occasion when I asked them about their experience on eneloop batteries. Both of them pointed out on the reliability of retaining the energy even when there were in storage.

Now some may think the colors are just designs to attract consumers but I think it is practical. How often you mixed your fully-charged batteries with those used one? How will you be able to tell them apart if they all looked exactly the same? By these color code, you can tell them a part easily and you can choose the different color to match difference devices depending on your mood too.


The new “eneloop glitter” battery pack  is already available in Singapore at Meidi-Ya Supermarket, Dufry Singapore and all Best Denki, Selffix D.I.Y, Sprint-Cass, and other electronic stores at a recommended retail price of S$49.90.

We can always use some green energy and some colors too!
