I bought some but for the price they don't last long. I went back to Costco batteries.

No success for me with the Eneloop Pro 2550mAh type, 2450mAh min, Ni-MH High Capacity. A waste of my money IMO.

Will the white charger accept the Eneloop Pro batteries?

You mean the white charger that comes with the Eneloop batteries? Yes, that charger will work. However, that is a very basic charger for the general masses. I use multi-chemistry USB chargers that can do solar charging and act as power banks too. The big one on the left does not do solar and power bank though.

We have not gotten deep enough to know if these Eneloops will work good for us. Since we get the batteries for near no cost it's no problem to stay with them until we determine their value.

I use only AA Eneloops to power my battery hungry cameras. Best batteries on the market. However, you must be sure to use it with the Eneloop charger as many of the other brands do not provide a smart (it knows when to stop charging) 2550mAh charge. They also last forever and do not lose their charge. I also own the Amazon rechargeables and they seem to match to Eneloops when charged with the Eneloop charger.

I use rechargable batteries and like them.....but they can be fickle on certain items. Most fully-charged AA and AAA reach about 1.35 to 1.4 volts when fully charged. This is the maximum charge voltage listed on the battery, plus some surface charge.

Many digital-devices can be quite picky when it comes to undervoltage and proper operation. I have a digital radio that senses voltage, a little too low and it shuts down. So I can put in freshly charged batteries, that are in good shape.....and they will only give me a couple of days. Not because the batteries are bad, but the radio wants the 1.5 to 1.6 volts that a primary-cell gives them.

Our 4 eneloop batteries were used in a battery operated screw driver which took 4 AA's. This screwdriver was used maybe 20 times on 20 screws and nothing more. Since it had been several months we put them in the white eneloop charger and the green LED's came on but did not blink as expected. Maybe because they were not close to needing a charge. The instructions said the lights would go off after full charge which is normally 7 hours. We started at 1:15 and at 4:45 the green lights were off. So, these batteries had more charge left in them.

I got some Duracell rechargeable and charger. I find the batteries are somewhat larger and don't fit in things like electric toothbrush or waterpik, or you really have to jam them in and then they are hard to get out.
