Just an FYI for those of you who are out of the USA and have a hard time finding Sanyo eneloops.

You can get them here for $12.61 USD inc worldwide delivery

i'd almost bet money that they're fake...everything from DX is fake.

"everything from DX is fake"

There are plenty of knock-off items on DX, but very little that is actually fake. Being listed as a "Sanyo Eneloop" item, chances are really quite good that they are actually Sanyo Eneloops.

Sorry to bring back an older thread, but is the charger included with the 4 eneloops at amazon considered a "trickle" charger?

Not sure, I'd be curious too and I'll add this question. If the Eneloop charger is not a trickle charger will it damage the batteries at all to leave them in say 24 hours after they're finished charging?

I picked up the Eneloop charger + 8 AA's a few months ago to use in the new Wii and since then I've ditched the 360 play and charge pack for them. Wonderful batteries, relatively long life, can be charged in pairs or fours, no complaints, and when the Xbox 360 finally goes bye bye I'll still have batteries to use instead of a charge pack.

Question as well, I picked up some dirt cheap Powerizer batteries probably two years ago or so and the charger died. Will it damage them/the charger to put them in the Eneloop charger and use them?

Hearing you say it was able to charge 2 at a time was enough reason for me to place the order. My last charger could only do 4 at a time. I figure I will save money in the long run this way instead of buying another plug and play kit. Ive been through 3 of them and they all just randomly stop working after 5 or 6 months.

Beware, there are two different Eneloop chargers, one can only do fours, one can do both. The one "smaller" one can do both (it's the one that is packaged if you buy it through Amazon itself). I think there's only one listing on Amazon that has the quartet-only charging, and I think it was overpriced so you probably wouldn't have bought that one.

I use Sony rechargable batteries. HAHA

I was afraid that they might melt my 360 controller but alas they did not. They work great so far.

Still believe these are the best thing going. Time has not changed my mind in the least.

True, but it's a widely known fact that the use of Sony brand batteries in your 360 controller is highly demoralizing for the console...it's like a tidal wave of fanboi energy assaulting it constantly.

they were just the most reasonable price for 4 batteries with a charger I saw at the time... so that's what I got.

I'm using rechargable batteries in everything now. Mostly Eneloop and a few Duracell and Energizer. I have around six or seven dozen in use right now.
