Panasonic eneloop charger list

Ordered by product name, and not grouped into categories of smart vs quick chargers. See explanation for more details.

The first 9 chargers below are Panasonic BQ-CC01 - BQ-CC10 chargers that were produced until 2013 from when they started carrying the Eneloop trademark. But to make this website as complete as possible, I`m adding the manuals for as much of these chargers as I could possibly find. The BQ-CC04 does not exist, probably due to the number 4, which is an unlucky number in Japan as it`s related to the word death.
Scroll down for the other chargers. Sanyo and Panasonic recommend to charge eneloop batteries with these chargers only. I don't think that is necessary!

These are a few Panasonic chargers that were only available with Evolta batteries. Nonetheless I added them for a good overview. BQ-CC13 doesn`t seem to exist!

Individual charging: No
Colors: White
Voltage: Intl. 100-240V 50-60Hz

I do not recommend this charger! Reviewed by HKJ. There is also another BQ-C51 which I think is the same, just looks a little different.

Panasonic BQ-CC20

Type: 2-bay AA smart charger

Manual: Manual BQ-CC20: JP version
Date:
 2011
Charge: AA 1-2  batteries
Charge rate std AA: 450mA
Charge rate std AAA: not possible
Individual charging: Yes
Colors: Green and white
Voltage: Intl. 100-240V 50-60Hz
Market: Japan only.
Other info: This is not an eneloop charger, this is from before Panasonic branded eneloops.

Evolta-kun is his name.
His eyes will change colors during charging.
This is not an eneloop, but a Panasonic Evolta branded.
I don`t like the way they coded this charger. BQ-CC20 comes after 11, 17 and 18, (which were sold with eneloop batteries). So although this one is from 2011 it was already called the BQ-CC20.

Panasonic BQ-CC21

Type: 4-bay smart charger

Colors: White
Voltage: Intl. 100-240V 50-60Hz

The Japanese manual only shows charging time for Lite batteries.  Std and Pro can`t be fully charged with this charger unless you charge them twice, as is mentioned in the manual. So not recommended for other batteries than eneloop lite!

Max 2 batteries per 2 slots, don`t mix 2 types in these 2 slots. 1 type on left 2 bays, and another type on right 2 bays is fine however. I don`t understand AAA is 6 hours if charge current is 180mA. BQ-CC25 seems to be the same, but only available in Japan. BC-CC15 is available worldwide.

Other info: This is a charger especially designed for eneloop lite. It will charge rather slowly. It does not have an indicator if a battery is full. Automatically stops after 6 hours charging. Stops charging when full, but LED will stay on till 6 hours.  Personally I don`t recommend this behavior.

It can detect if the battery is rechargeable or not. It can also detect if a battery is in bad shape. Reviewed by HKJ and FilterJoe.

There is also another BQ-CC55, without the multi colored LEDs. It has some smaller 1 color leds. And I dont think the 2 chargers are the same.
The BQ-CC55 is sometimes referred to as the Eneloop PRO charger, because it`s sold with eneloop PRO batteries and sometimes with standard batteries in a set.

What's the best eneloop charger?

Since Sanyo introduced eneloop in 2005 they have put many chargers to the market. And while most of them were available in combination with eneloop batteries they are not always recommended.

The following list contains the best Eneloop Chargers currently available (and from the past).

Best Eneloop chargers are:

  1. Sanyo NC-MR58: a special designed charger with battery check and refresh functionality. A fairly fast charger and international voltage range. Unfortunately mainly available in Japan second hand. Not in production anymore.
  2. Sanyo NC-MQR06: also an older charger but liked by many battery enthusiast back in the day, and is still considered a good second hand charger.
  3. Panasonic BQ-CC17: available worldwide. Reviewed by many people. Slow charger, but good charger.
  4. Panasonic BQ-CC55: with a word of caution. See the charger info for a link to reviews. This is recommended with new batteries. It can be tricky using older non-eneloop batteries with higher internal resistance.
  5. Panasonic BQ-CC65: This one is the most advanced charger Panasonic has put forth till this date. See above details for more info.

If you want to have more control over charging your batteries, you should have a look at the Best Smart chargers/analyzers.
