Last time I was in a best buy the rack had a mixture of the white top and the black top versions. I would think at this price its worth a shot either way.

yeah, well it's free for in-store pickup-- if they have both, don't see why you can't ask to exchange if you get the black tops. ;)

Yep... it seems very likely these are eneloops rebadged as duracells. Pretty commonly called "durloops". Here are a couple of posts on another forum discussing this battery and conversation in particular:

I've bought a set awhile back and they perform identical to the eneloops... and I just went and bought 6 more packs today. Just stick to the white top and "made in japan".
