Sanyo has been offering up its line of rechargeable Eneloop batteries for a long time now. Sanyo has announced the addition of two new Eneloop models to the line that will be launching this year. The new batteries are only offered in AA size and are the Eneloop Pro and Eneloop Plus. Both will hit Japan to start with.
The Eneloop Pro will launch on July 21 in Japan and has 25% greater storage capacity for power than other Eneloop batteries. That means they will be perfect for more runtime on high drain devices that can really suck down the power like cameras and flashlights. Sanyo will offer a new charger for the batteries too that uses Qi technology for wireless charging.
The Eneloop Plus batteries will launch on December 1 in Japan and will include special tech inside that prevents overheating. The plus batteries are aimed at use in toys for more safety since overheating is a fire hazard. A pair of the Pro batteries will cost 1260 yen and none of the other items are priced yet.
