I've said before that Sanyo's eneloops are my preferred battery, so I'm pleased to see Sanyo releasing updates to the already great product. SANYO's eneloop Series Expands with New-Type Batteries Featuring high capacity “eneloop pro” and safer “eneloop plus”!
Tokyo, June 9, 2011 – SANYO Electric Co., Ltd.

The new “eneloop pro” battery has a 25% higher capacity than regular eneloop batteries, making it especially suitable for gadgets with high power consumption, such as digital cameras, strobe lights and flashlights etc. The new “eneloop plus” battery, with its overheat prevention function which suppresses overheating in case of improper use, is ideal for toys.
In addition, SANYO will also launch the “Wireless Charging Carrying Case” which can wirelessly recharge eneloop batteries. The carrying case is compliant with ‘Qi*1’, a standard of the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) who are working towards the international standardization of wireless recharging technologies.
The “eneloop pro” will be available from July 21, 2011 and the “eneloop pro” charger set will go on sale from September 21 in Japan only *2. The “eneloop plus” and its charger set will be available from December 1, 2011, also in Japan only *2.
SANYO, as a member of the Panasonic Group, will continue to expand the “eneloop” series throughout the world so that people can comfortably adopt a new "lifestyle that values reusing and recycling". *1 The “Qi” mark means that a product with the mark fulfills WPC’s standards for wireless recharging. The carrying case is useable with any charging pad with the Qi mark, regardless of the maker (Excluding certain models).
