It hardly seems like five years since the Sanyo eneloop batteries hit the market. It has been that long now though and Sanyo is celebrating the fifth anniversary of its AA and AAA eneloop batteries with some flashy colors for folks to purchase.
The batteries are being offered in eight different glitter colors of the batteries in a limited edition. The batteries will be available on November 14 in Japan in purple, pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, silver, and black. Do we really need batteries in glitter colors? You won't see them unless they are in the charger.
I guess the glitter colors will look better on store shelves and with the price, being equal folks will take a pretty design over a plain one with the same performance. Sanyo isn’t exactly clear on the point of if the pack has all of the different colors in one bundle or if the colors are offered individually.
