If you follow the rechargeable battery scene at all, then you're undoubtedly familiar with Sanyo's Eneloop brand, the go-to option for batteries that come fully charged from the get-go and don't lose their juice nearly as fast as your average rechargeable. But if there's a downside to Eneloop batteries, it's that they don't compete with higher capacity units. Or at least they didn't used to. Sanyo just announced a couple new additions to its Eneloop lineup, the Eneloop Pro and Eneloop Plus. The Eneloop Pro boasts a 25 percent higher capacity than regular Eneloop batteries, making it better suited for power hungry devices like digital cameras, strobe lights, and flashlights.

So, you're a rock star? Wanna be famous? All that good stuff? Well, if you're a guitar player, you'll need the right tools, and Sanyo has a new tool to consider on stage. The KBC-9V3U Pedal Juice (a member of the Eneloop series, it seems) kills a problem that guitarists have had for years now: batteries. 9V batteries in particular.

It's a 9V Lithium–Ion rechargeable battery power pack that can provide up to 50 hours of power to a guitar effects pedal, and unless you're playing all night, the Pedal Juice also eliminates the need for power cables which can produce “ground sound” and drastically reduce tone.

Sanyo's Eneloop charging system has been growing at a rapid pace, but obviously not quite rapid enough. The company has just unleashed its latest in the line: the Eneloop Music Booster. As you might expect, this device is a rechargeable DV9V battery unit made specifically for music devices, and while most modern day music players will last at least half a day on a full charge, there's always that pinch when traveling where you just don't have time to sit by an AC outlet and let the battery recharge. Put simply, this device will recharge any portable unit that utilizes a 9-volt DC power source, and it can also be recharged itself once drained. The device is even resistant to water, and Sanyo promises... Read more...
Sanyo's Eneloop brand has to be one of our favorite new things going. We've already seen an Eneloop charging stick that is perfect for recharging weak gadgets, and now the next Eneloop device is one for warming your hands. Yeah, hand warming! As the gadget world branches out into wilder and wilder gizmos, Sanyo's Eneloop Kairo is an egg-styled device in white or pink (though the double-sided warmer also comes in silver), and are obviously designed to heat up your frigid hands in the cold, bitter winter. The device is somewhat smaller than a deck of cards, and while the single-sided version offers an internal Li-ion battery that delivers a level of heat ranging from 102 degrees F in the low setting...

Let's face it: just about any gizmo worth using these days has a USB connector, and more often than not, it's actually charged over USB as well. But also, battery life has sunk in recent years as devices are made to be slimmer and hold less spacious batteries. The solution to this quandary?

When your USB-related gizmo needs a boost, you simply... Read more...
