Sanyo Releases 8-Color AA-size “eneloop” Rechargeable Battery Pack
SANYO Electric Co., Ltd. is pleased to announce that as of the end of October 2009 its total global shipments of the “eneloop” rechargeable battery promoting a “lifestyle that values reusing and recycling” reached 100 million cells, approximately four years after its first release in November 2005.
In commemoration of this a variety of products are being released with the improved AA-size “eneloop” that is rechargeable “Approximately 1,500 Times” which is No. 1 in the industry. On November 14, 2009 in Japan, two sets of products will be released that both include a simple battery checker designed in the form of the “eneloop” mascot “eneloopy.” One set will come with the “eneloopy” battery checker and AA-size “eneloop” batteries and the other set will include the “eneloopy” battery checker, AA-size “eneloop” batteries, and a quick charger. SANYO will follow this by releasing an 8-color AA-size “eneloop” pack called “eneloop tones” on December 1, 2009 in Japan.
SANYO will continue to expand the “eneloop” series throughout the world so that people can comfortably adopt a new “lifestyle that values reusing and recycling” contrary to the popular “use and throw away” lifestyle often associated with common products like batteries.
