Eneloop rechargeable batteries could wipe out dry-cell landfill


The number of dry-cell batteries sold in one year worldwide is about 40 billion*1. When these batteries are dead they find their way to landfill. By using rechargeable batteries, we can change our lifestyle from one that repeatedly discards batteries to one that repeatedly reuses them.

Take a fresh look at rechargeable eneloop, the world’s leading alternative to conventional dry cell batteries. They offer the same high performance and long life as dry cell, but can be recharged up to 2,100 times*2 instead of becoming material waste after the first use.

What’s more, thanks to extremely low self-discharge capabilities, pre-charged eneloop can be used immediately or stored for up to five years while retaining up to 70%*3 capacity. As well as delivering convenience, economy, and high voltage performance, eneloop is good for the environment. So if saving money, time, and nature’s ecology sounds good, make the change to a sustainable lifestyle.

We’ve released two very cute infographic videos that highlight eneloop’s main features and eco benefits. Check them out!

Benefits of Both Technologies


Ready-to-use eneloop combines the best aspects of dry cell and rechargeable Ni-MH technology. They’re convenient, durable, and storable for long periods, yet can be reused again and again.

Recharge Up to 2,100 Times


Your initial investment is quickly recovered, with eneloop returning an impressive 2,100 charges over an average lifespan. Depending on usage, this could equal years of trouble-free service.

Ready to Use After Five Years in Storage


Even after five years in storage, eneloop retains up to 70%*3 of its original charge. This makes eneloop ideal for use in portable radios, remote controllers, and torches stored for emergencies.

The Green Certification System and eneloop


As part of our participation in the Green Certificate System, eneloop batteries are charged with solar-generated power prior to sale*4, helping in our aim of creating a Clean Energy Loop.
