Many think these are rebranded Panasonic Sanyo Eneloop Pro AA batteries.

from one of the review:

- The original AmazonBasics batteries came in black wrappers. They are made in China and have the capacity rating of 2000mAh. They are NOT as good as Sanyo eneloop batteries.

- The second version of AmazonBasics batteries came in white wrappers. They are made in Japan and also have the capacity rating of 2000mAh. They are (according to me) rebranded 2nd-gen Sanyo eneloop, so you can expect at least 1500 cycles lifespan.

- The third version is also black but called 'high-capacity'. They are (according to me) rebranded Sanyo XX. They are rated 2400mAh, but actual capacity is around 2550mAh, just like Sanyo XX. The rated lifespan of the XX is only 500 cycles.

this is most likely the 3rd version.



5D3 and a few lens
es.

Yes, the Sanyo XX are now known as Panasonic Eneloop Pro batteries.

I love eneloops. Amazon basics can be the same as eneloop pro.
Eneloop PRO are now up to the fourth generation, although there are probably only 2 versions. They used to be 2400mAh uwx, then came the uwxa (mainly sold overseas, same specs) then came the uwxb, which were 2450mAh, and in 2013 they changed to panasonic bk 3hcc...but with same specs again as the uwxb.
I acquired a lot of info on them, have a few threads running on eneloops on other forums, here for example: http://budgetlightforu​m.com/node/7336 (external link)


Eos M, 5DII, and some lenses.
