All chargers 2005 - Today
Do you know how to charge your Eneloop batteries?
Both Sanyo and Panasonic have been making some interesting chargers. The sad thing is that not all of their chargers are good. Some of them charge a pair of batteries for X amount of hours, and then stop. These are sometimes called dumb chargers...... They are time-based chargers.
More than just batteries
In 2006 Sanyo introduced the `Eneloop Universe`.
This expanded the concept of Eneloop. It received the 2007 Good Design Award with their intuitive lineup of products.
This included a lamp, portable solar charger, neck warmer, bicycles and more.
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.
