Goods arrived quickly, were well packed and were exactly as described. The charger has a built in UK 3 pin plug, so the charger mounts directly on the socket with no trailing lead. As a bonus the 3 pin plug assembly can be easily unclipped leaving a standard US style plug behind so the charger can also be used in the states. There are 4 blue LEDs, 1 for each batter slot so you know the status of each cell being charged. I bought the Eneloop charger and cells because my Harmony remote was eating batteries at quite a pace. These cells have lasted 3 weeks in the Harmony so far on only one charge, so really happy with my purchase.

I bought this product, then did the research, so it's my own fault that I now prefer the standard eneloop cells. These XX cells have a slight edge in capacity, but this is at the expense of charge cycles: these should be go for 500 charge-discharge cycles or so, whereas the standard ones should be good for 1500. (The Eneloop lite, for less demanding applications, take even more cycles.) If the capacity is important to you, these are the ones but for most users, the standard ones may well be a better choice. Overall, though, the Eneloops seem to be the best buy of the market at the moment.

At least I got the charger model right: This is the MQ R06, which monitored each battery's voltage and turns it off at the right point. Cheaper sellers may be offering the MQ N04 which, afaik, depends on time only - sixteen hours - to turn off. If the cells have some juice left when inserted they can be overcooked and have their overall life shortened.

Slow delivery from supplier, but does what it says. the plug element can be swapped if you have the alternatives, to work in other types of sockets.Great fast-charge double-speed design for refilling just a pair of these hi-capacity batteries, or triple-speed for just a single battery. Solidly made, clear and simple instructions as expected.

Great batteries, fastest recycling batteries - best for camera flash. Charger fast and better than previous one. The batteries are heavy though.

I purchased this charger as I thought paying a little I extra I would get the complete package. I received the charger but without a UK 3 pin, a European 2 pin instead. I had read the reviews about European connection but was fooled by marketing script thinking mine would include UK 3 pin plug - not the case. Easy remedy I know but feel a little grieved having paid for this premium charger but have to pay extra for an adaptor to use! I live in the UK and thought, incorrectly this would come with UK 3 point as advertised but was wrong. I cannot comment on the functionality of this charger as have yet to buy an adaptor.

It's odd. I cant understand all the great reviews for these batteries. I did quite a lot of research on the batteries before I purchased them and I purchased them on the strength of consumer reviews and Sanyo's reputation. I purchased these batteries, (4x AA & charger) to power a SureFlap microchip reading cat flap. I was fed up of using regular batteries, which this flap would go through every 1 1/2 to 2 month. The first time I used them, they lasted nearly 2 month before they needed a charge, about the same time as a decent branded alkaline battery, 8 month down the line and their basically useless.

After a full charge, i.e when the blue lights go out. I place them in the cat flap and within hours the red flashing low battery warning light indicator is flashing on the cat flap, the strange thing is when I test the batteries, they show a sufficiently good charge in the yellow/green of the tester, just like a new battery would. I was under the impression Sanyo Eneloop were especially good for high demand applications, which this cat flap is, thats after all why I bought them, but after reading all the positive reviews. I'm wondering if the batteries are defective or possibly the charger. I've had them less than 12 month, surely they should last longer and than this. I did expect far better performance really!?

The package is certainly excellent and convenient, and so far, the batteries have been a wonder to use. As a photographer it is important for my flashes to always have power, and enough to shoot repeatedly. Usually this means a standard pack of AA batteries would only last half an event or so, but these Sanyo Eneloops can last an entire event and then some, it is really impressive and it is so much more convenient to have the charger and a few packs of these, than to have to buy a large number of normal batteries on a semi regular basis.

I purchased this 3 months ago and been using it on my flash gun.
never failed and never had a problem when its charged the flash gun fires with no problem.
there was a time that i used my flash gun continuously for 3 hours straight and i mean like 3 shots a minute for 3 hours and this battery really held up for i think 3 hours before it died.
the charge time is also quick.
so i must say that i am very pleased and will definitely recommend it .
the delivery was also very prompt.
