I was told Titanium's NiMH batteries are among the best performers in the world. Sanyo's batteries are also known as one of the best. Now, Sanyo releases the Eneloop battery in the market, but I didn't find it in any local store around me.

I notice Titanium's Power Enduro is claimed to have at least 80% power after one year storage. http://www.amondotech.com/index.asp?...mp;ProdID=1131
If it is true, I think Titanium's Power Enduro will be another good option for battery with low self-discharge, or even better (it is labeled as 2100mAh)

Can someone tell me the experience with Enduro? I will appreciate a lot if you can compare Eneloop and Enduro.

By the way, did Enduro use Eneloop as OEM? Thanks

Hello Nimh,

Sanyo claims 2000 mAh and 85% capacity after 1 year of room temperature storage. AmondoTech claims 2100 mAh and 80% capacity after 1 year of room temperature storage. Based on claims, it appears that after 1 year of storage, they are about the same.

A comparison between these cells is difficult, because they only have been out for a short while. Check back in 6 months, or so, and we should have some data collected to compare.

Hi SilverFox, Thank you so much. I am looking forward to see your self-discharging result.

Actually, I was considering to replace all my alkaline batteries with rechargeable batteries. One problem is the self-discharging. Therefore, it doesn't make any sence to use NiMH cells in clocks, remote control, flashlight... Low self-deischarge is very important. Hopefully, I can see such result soon.

Thanks.

I believe it is the same as the new Rayovac Hybrid, which has the same specs and the small things (shapes, texture of wrapper) on the two are the same. I'm testing the Hybrid and so far, the capacity retention isn't as good as the eneloop. The capacity loss in the first week seems to be greater than the eneloop.
