These rechargeable NiMH Eneloop batteries are an overseas limited item. They can be used nearly 2,100 times with an energy retaining rate of approximately 70% after 10 years. This product aims for sustainability by promoting a switch from disposable to rechargeable batteries in the global market. The design is based on the concept of the never ending cycle of life, with a leaf-colored motif to foster the idea of sustainability and promote repeated use. Various colors make it easier to identify which batteries are charged and which are not. When shipped from the factory, the batteries are charged via solar energy. The package is made from biomass PET, a material derived from plants. After opening the product, the package can be used to store the batteries or as a carrying case.
