Rechargeable batteries, an essential accessory that is often used in digital cameras, camera flash, wireless keyboard, game controller, wireless mouse, torchlights etc. In my context, I used rechargeable batteries quite often in my photography outings especially when I am covering events with flash photography. During an event shoot, I will usually pack 2 sets of 4AA rechargeable batteries as a backup to the 4AA rechargeable batteries inside my flash. Therefore, I can be quite an energy consumption user at times.

Recently, Sanyo Energy (Singapore) Corporation Pte Ltd, a member of the Panasonic Group, announces the arrival of their latest eneloop Black Charger and eneloop XX batteries, one of the highest performing rechargeable batteries in the market. It was an honour to be invited and given the opportunity to test and review the eneloop XX batteries, courtesy of Sanyo Energy (Singapore) Corporation Pte Ltd and Ninemer Pubic Relations.
