The brand “Eneloop” has been lately one of the most popular Sanyo brands in Japan. The first product under the Eneloop brand was a battery recharger with no special features; maybe the key to its success was its design simplicity which reminds you a lot of Apple products. Another key to its success was that it was released to coincide with the launch of the Nintendo Wii, whose controllers make the use of rechargeable batteries practically indispensable. In big retailer store, there was almost always an Eneloop stand right next to the Nintendo Wii one.
When Sanyo saw the success of the battery rechargers, Sanyo decided to expand the brand releasing all kind of battery rechargers and batteries. There are also available adapters that you can connect directly to the iPhone so the battery lasts longer, solar chargers for cellphones and also an Eneloop bicycle that has a Sanyo battery.
This dog-shaped recharger can recharge an AAA battery.
