Take a fresh look at rechargeable eneloop, the world's leading alternative to conventional dry cell batteries. It offers similarly high performance and long life, but can be reused up to 2,100 times1. And thanks to extremely low self-discharge capabilities, pre-charged eneloop can be used immediately or stored for up to five years while retaining up to 65%2 capacity. As well as delivering convenience, economy, and high voltage performance, eneloop is good for the environment. So if saving money, time, and nature's ecology sounds good, make the change to a sustainable lifestyle.
Leading energy solutions for the future
More than 170 billion dry batteries (also known as alkaline) sold in 120 countries. Projected sales of 200 billion units by 2018. With eneloop you’ll reduce waste with every charge.
Benefits of both technologies
Ready-to-use eneloop combines the best aspects of dry cell and rechargeable Ni-MH technology. They're convenient, durable, and storable for long periods, yet can be reused again and again.
Recharge up to 2,100 times
Your initial investment is quickly recovered, with eneloop returning an impressive 2,1001 charges over an average lifespan. Depending on usage, this could equal years of trouble-free service.
Ready to use after five years in storage
Even after five years in storage, eneloop retains up to 65%2 of its original charge. This makes eneloop ideal for use in portable radios, remote controllers, and torches stored for emergencies.
The Green Certification System and eneloop
As part of our participation in the Green Certificate System, eneloop batteries are charged with solar-generated power prior to sale4, helping in our aim of creating a Clean Energy Loop.
Our rechargeable battery technology has matured very rapidly, and more people are making the change to eneloop on the recommendation of family and friends. The long life, high power, and value for money has seen eneloop gain even more ground, with Panasonic shipping over 300 million cells to more than 60 countries to date. That's a big win for the environment as well as your pocket.
According to a recently conducted in-house survey of our users, eneloop attracted higher than 95% customer satisfaction-testament to Panasonic's superior design and stringent process controls. Users commented on the reliability, consistency of quality, and long endurance they experienced when using eneloop in a variety of appliances.
A critical and commercial success
Rechargeable eneloop's functionality and ease of use has attracted accolades from the world's leading design organisations ever since its debut in 2005. Rechargeable eneloop has been honoured by such prestigious institutions as the Good Design Awards of Japan, the Japan Package Design Awards, and iF of Germany, along with recognition from the Australia International Design Awards, the IDEA Design Awards (USA), and the Asia Design Awards.
Saves the environment, saves you money still doesn’t compromise on power.
1. Battery life based on testing method established by IEC61951-2 (22.214.171.124). Varies according to conditions of use.
2. Capacity retention based on testing method established by IEC61951-2 (7.3.2) when stored at 20°C (based on Panasonic's estimation). Varies according to conditions of use and compared with minimum capacity.
3. Based upon reducing 2.099 or 2,100 standard batteries being sent to landfill.
4. Through the green power certification system
