Vapex NiMH Rechargeable Batteries Outshine Sanyo Eneloop in Value & Quality

As more and more people continue to increase their gadget use, the demand for batteries has increased as well. Because disposable batteries are expensive and bad for the environment, consumers are now turning to rechargeable batteries as a more affordable, eco-friendly option. Sanyo Eneloop was one of the first companies to jump on the rechargeable battery band wagon, developing a functional, affordable NiMH rechargeable battery for consumer electronics. As a result of a robust marketing campaign, Sanyo Eneloop has become a market leader in rechargeables.

New competitors in the rechargeable battery market are emerging, however. In particular, the lesser-known Vapex brand of NiMH rechargeables have several advantages over their Sanyo Eneloop counterpart at a much lower retail price. We decided to do a comparison of the two brands, and came up with a few interesting conclusions that might make you a believer in Vapex.

Vapex Instant Rechargeable Batteries Come in a Variety of Sizes.

The vast majority of NiMH rechargeable battery brands – including Sanyo Eneloops – only offer AA and AAA sized batteries. Vapex, however, is one of the few companies who have developed reliable NiMH rechargeable battery designs for C, D, and 9V sizes as well. The advantage is that consumers can use Vapex Instant rechargeable batteries not only on small electronics such as digital cameras and mp3 players, but also for larger electronic devices, such as flashlights, children’s toys, electronic scales, smoke detectors, and other devices that require large-sized batteries.

“Instant” Rechargeable Batteries Give You the Convenience of a Disposable Battery

Early rechargeable battery designs, such as the NiCad, had to be charged when first purchased. This design drawback led many people to shy away from using rechargeable batteries, since they were not able to be used right out of the package. Instant rechargeable batteries, however, can be used right out of the package as needed, due to their very low self-discharge rate, which allows them to be charged at any time and hold their charge until needed. Both Vapex and Sanyo Eneloop feature “instant” rechargeable battery designs, however, the Vapex brand is considerably more affordable than Sanyo while still offering the same level of quality and reliability.

Vapex Batteries Can Be Charged in Any Type of Reliable NiMH Battery Charger

While Sanyo Eneloop NiMH rechargeable batteries are quite popular among consumers, charging them using anything other than a proprietary Sanyo Eneloop NiMH charger will void the warranty on your batteries. Because of this, consumers have very limited options for the type of NiMH battery charger they can use. Vapex rechargeable batteries, on the other hand, can be charged with any reliable NiMH battery charger, allowing people to purchase a wide range of chargers for home, car, and computer use.

An Obvious Choice for Rechargeable Battery Retailers

It is for all of these reasons that many electronics retailers worldwide are beginning to exclusively sell Vapex Instant rechargeable batteries over Sanyo Eneloop. Particularly in the realm of online retailer, battery retailers are now able to offer customers the full line of Vapex batteries at factory direct prices, which is half the suggested retail price of Sanyo Eneloops. So, if you’re looking for great deals on Vapex’s high-quality NiMH rechargeable batteries, look online for the best value.
