Eneloop Limited Edition

All 20 eneloop limited editions ever made, scroll down for the complete list

From 2009 eneloop`s line-up included limited edition batteries. All of them are standard eneloops. There are no special edition eneloops in the Lite or Pro version! If you find anything that is not mentioned here, please let me know at:  chibim@eneloop101.com. Or go to my facebook page.

Numbers

Every special edition battery is numbered. On the side of the battery you can see a small square box with a number in it. When there are 8 unique designs, each battery will be numbered between 1-8. If there are only 4 different types, you will see 1-4.

Easy to match

Some people used to write something (like a letter or a number) on each battery to know what batteries belonged together.
Because it is BAD to mix an old and new battery together, which can result in a damaged battery! With The limited edition you don`t have to do this anymore. Just put the same colors or designs together with a device!

20 special editions

Until today there have been made exactly 20 different kinds of limited editions.
