This Ni-MH battery is rechargeable up to 2,100 times and represents a cost-effective alternative to disposable batteries.

Its eye-catching natural colors also serve a practical purpose, helping users to distinguish between charged cells and those needing replenishment. All batteries ship fully charged with solar energy.

Packaging design

Ecological sustainability is carried through to product packaging, which is made of recycled PET for easy recycling after disposal. Furthermore, the packaging doubles as a battery carry-case, allowing users to protect their investment while minimizing wastage. Both reusability and recyclability helped eneloop tones tropical to victory in the packaging category—another in a total of 22 Panasonic products to receive recognition at the 2015 iF Design Awards.
