Many customers ask “How do the new IMEDION AA rechargeable batteries compare to the eneloop AA rechargeable batteries?
Both are a low discharge technology, so they retain up to 85% of their charge after 12 months. But the eneloops have been available for a while, whereas the IMEDIONs are new. Has Maha been able to develop a better performer?
It would seem so. Test results have demonstrated IMEDION AA batteries outperforming the eneloop AA batteries in capacity measurements and discharge tests. Anders over on the Candle Power Forum has done many tests on the IMEDION AA batteries. The results of one of the tests, a comparison to the eneloop batteries, is shown below.
Update: Anders has noted that the eneloop graph is not correct. To see a more comparable graph, see the eneloop tests by Silverfox.
Here in Australia, several people have done their own tests and published the results on the whirlpool forum. Results by “Horrorking” can be seen here and IMEDION and eneloop performance tests in a Nikon SB-800 camera flash can be seen here
While the IMEDION AA batteries demonstrate a capacity advantage over the eneloop batteries, the other benefit of the IMEDION batteries is that they include a free AA battery holder, whereas the eneloop batteries do not.
EDIT: Fixed typo’s and added link to eneloop test results – sorry for misspelling your name Anders!
