Eneloop chargers 2005 - 2018

Do you know how to charge your Eneloop batteries?

Eneloop Products

More than just batteries.

Did you know that Sanyo introduced the `Eneloop Universe` in 2006?
This expanded the concept of Eneloop.  With their Eneloop Universe intuitive lineup of products they received the 2007 Good Design Award.

This lineup of products included things like lamps, portable solar chargers, neck warmers,  bicycles etc.

With the official closing of the Sanyo trademark in Japan in March 2012, "Eneloop universe" stopped as well. Some products like the mobile boosters have been improved and sold under the Panasonic brand. And many more never saw daylight again.
