The play & charge kit has a Li-Ion battery. Those always have had auto cut off once 100% built in for ages. Not that i recommend it though. 

No no , not talking about plug and charge kit. 

The eneloop chargers have a cheaper variant that charges only via usb but does not have auto cut feature. Was talking about that.

Ohhh accha. It's the newest one na? I saw on amazon touting a usb port. CC-61 

 

Yeah stay away from that. CC-17 or 55 are tried and tested.

the charging time for that CC61 is advertised at 10 hrs! That product is clearly intended for someone with either normal level of patience or high level of planning abilities. I wouldn't recommend it. I got the CC55. Charges 2 batteries in 1.5 hours flat.

Eneloops or even Duracell won't last for 4-5 years lol. I've yet to see a Ni-MH last that long with regular use. Half of them will die at 2 year mark.

 

With those 1.5 hour fast charge times, it's no surprise. You're killing the cells pretty quick, I guess.

Yea, I think the CC61 isn't USB Type-C. Best avoided.

Eneloops are very well known to last years on end. They are rated for 2100 charge-discharge cycles. If you recharge them twice a week (for  a heavy gamer), that equates to about 100 cycles in an year. 

The Eneloop Pros have a larger capacity 2500mAh but they're rated for 500 cycles - which is still great considering more capacity = lesser cycles

If one uses the old skool slow chargers they do. Also helps running the same brand charger for eneloop. I've messed up many sony batteries trying to make them play well with eneloop chargers and vice-versa.

 

You remember that Sony reset charger about 10-12 years ago :lol: It used to claim resetting a battery to start afresh. F**ked my eneloops :angry:

They're rated at those cycles provided you keep them in ideal conditions. NiMH is extremely susceptible to high temps which makes them degrade faster especially in India. Although 2100 cycles should last a lot longer than standard 500 cycle NiMH.

Yeah if you put it in a fast charge that doesn't support trickle charge, it'll kill the batteries faster than anything else.

I've a ton of eneloops and they are all working for more than 4-5 years. I use a Maha C9000 charger. Their chargers are the ones to get if you are into a lot of rechargeable batteries.

This doesn't look like a fast charger. How long does it take on average to top up?

That’s elusive as anything. Till date haven’t seen it anywhere online in India. But yes that’s a very reputed charger and brand.

It's a configurable charger. You can do fast/slow/refresh etc depending on what you need by controlling the charge rate (and whether you want trickle at end or not etc). For completely drained to full, you can go from anywhere between 1-2 hours to 1 day. I keep the charging rate pretty low to extend life since I have quite a few eneloops, so I do overnight charging.

Yeah, I bought this like 12-15 years ago from US. Still going strong.

The leds go off once fully charged. 


When I plugged in the batteries, it initially blinked green than turned solid green and then turned off within few seconds... so probably it was fully charged than 🤔,  will check today...

 

does cc17 have auto cutoff when fully Charged ?

Yes bro. 
 

Initial blink is when the charger determines the battery capacity, health and voltage. 
Solid is when it is charging. 
red blinking = Time to make Jeff Bezos rich again

Led off = Batteries are fully charged and ready to go.
