    Never heard of them until OTAP. Mine run great. They're made by Sanyo, so I'm sure everyone who hasn't heard of eneloop has heard of Sanyo.

    I have the following
    8x Eneloops - they go in my $30 sunpaks
    8x Duracell 2650 mah - those go into my sb80xs
    8x energizer 2500 mah - those are backups.

    Anyone know if the eneloops be charged in any battery recharger or does it have to be sanyo specific?

    I've used energizer, duracell, and rayovac. Just ordered some eneloops based on OTAP recommendation. Looking forward to seeing how they perform.

    They have them everywhere in Canada. Dell just had them on sale 2 days ago. Costco also carries them. Shoppers Drug Mart sells the duracell equivalent (just rebranded) which goes on sale all the time.
