Do these batteries use the Sanyo eneloop technology? Also, how many mAh do these have?

I'm curious if they can retain a charge without draining. the Eneloop batteries come pre-charged and don't lose their charge over time if left idle. Just wondering what Apple is using. ( Eneloop batteries usually have a white cap on top around the contact )

  • Best Answer:

    Yes, these batteries are apparently low self-discharge NiMH batteries, like the Sanyo Eneloop batteries, otherwise they wouldn't retain 80% of their charge after a year. It's not clear yet if they are just rebranded Eneloops.

  • My Apple batteries were nearly fully charged when I got them. That's typical for "Low Self Discharge" (LSD) NiMH batteries, but NOT for typical "consumer-grade" NiMH batteries. (Sanyo eneloops are the LSD type.)

    These Apple batteries have a label capacity of "Min. 1900 mAH". Compare to eneloop, AA batteries, which say "Typ. 2,000 mAH, Min. 1,900 mAH".

  • I've compared Apple batteries and 4 different Eneloop packages. Except black plastic around top contact, all of them appear the same. EXACTLY the same!
