Would that same charger work to recharge Eneloop AAA?

It should work for AAA too since i have the older similar model made by Sanyo which charges both, There is a slight depression and notch on the negative pole side a little ahead so that the AAA batteries can fit in in their little "wells". Obviously it can't charge both sets at the same time but can charge any mix and match combination of 4 batteries.

I too use a La Crosse for charging rather than the white charger.

But the White Sanyo / Panasonic has a use. When the battery is so dead that the La Crosse does not initiate the charging and shows a null reading, the white charger gives enough juice to the battery with brute force that it is recognized by the Lacrosse and gets it going. One other use is when I go on trips I would prefer to carry the white cheap charger than the expensive La Crosse

I tried 2 types of Eneloop rechargables and they didn't last long enough for my needs. The Eneloops are now reserved for use in items that don't require much juice.

We got a set of the Eneloops and the charger because it was rated one of the top rechargeable batteries for "digital cameras" which is the device that eats our non re-chargeable batteries.

For high-drain devices such as cameras, use the high capacity Eneloop Pro batteries. Regular Eneloop AA = 2000mAh. Eneloop Pro = 2400mAh. Amazon sells their own rebranded Eneloops for less. These are what I use in my Canon camera.

This thread reminded me to toss all my rechargeable batteries.
I could not bring myself to toss the [relatively expensive] charger though.
