A lot cheaper at CostCo. (And, yes, I know not everyone belongs to CostCo or lives near a CostCo)

@mjonczak: the second 'c' in Costco is not capitalized - look @ their logo: www.costco.com

Sorry, it's one of my many grammatical flaws

You can also get them cheaper here:http://www.amazon.com/Sanyo-eneloop-Pre-Charged-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B004UG41XW/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1369232648&sr=1-1&keywords=eneloop

I guess the only difference is that the op linked to the 3rd gen ones. The only difference I can see is that you can recharge the 3rd gen ones 1800 times rather than 1500 times. That's quite a bit more just for a few extra charges.

These are great rechargeable batteries.
I cannot comment on the price but I get mine from Amazon as well.

In for one. Also, ships "free" with Prime.

vote-for2vote-against

Amazon does have a better price on these.

Also, as our grammatically-challenged poster noted, Costco has a great deal on these, too! I just got a set for $23 that comes with 8 AA, 2 AAA, a 4-battery charger, and adapters that make the AA's usable where C or D cell batteries are needed. (I always get their 48 pack of Kirkland AA's, but decided the extra $8 was worth it for what I got.)

@xyphox: Third gen Eneloops are also rated for colder temperatures, -20 C

I use Tenergy Centura (another brand of low self discharge NIMH batteries) from all-battery.com or from their shop at ebay.
Been very happy with them.
Cheaper than eneloop. I use them in toys, clocks, remote controls, etc

@ngufra: @andrewj posted a link to those same batteries above, great reviews.

@zippy the pinhead: Sentences should begin capitalized and end with a punctuation.

I agree - Costco is the place to get them if you belong/are near one. I've also bought Tenergy and energyON (Nexcell) versions of these online and have had great luck with them as well.

I have noticed at My local Costco stores that they don't keep these batteries in stock very well. They tend to be sold out a lot so call ahead and confirm that they are available.

Go to Sellout.Woot today and get the eight enloops WITH crappy charger for $18 + $5 shipping.

vote-for1vote-against

Great batteries, but this seems to be the normal price (according to camelcamelcamel.com)... Also, they might not be betterer enough to justify the 20% premium over the previous generation; that's up to the individual. I've got a mix of 1st gen and 2nd gen at home and they're doing a great job

vote-for1vote-against

Aren't they similar to the sponsored deal above? You can buy two of those for less than this and get two chargers in the bargain!

@jc283: Well, what about hotter temps?
People do leave their cameras, paintball guns, and other electronics in the car.
