Eneloop 4-position charger + 4 AAs (K-KJ17MCA4BA) for $18 w/free S&H

And now something for Eneloopy fans. NewEggFlash (NewEgg’s answer to Groupon type sites) is offering the Panasonic K-KJ17MCA4BA eneloop Advanced 4-position Charger & 4-pack AA New 2100 Cycle Rechargeable Batteries for $18 with free shipping and handling. You can buy up to 30 sets at this per unit price. Free shipping whether you buy one item or a gazillion… This goes for $20 at Amazon but if you don’t have Prime, you don’t get free shipping… The NewEggFlash offer ends 12/16/14.

NOTE: if you are speed-reading the specs,the numbers are similar and it may create confusion (it did with me): this is a 2100 cycle (2100 recharges), not a 2100 mah battery set. The batteries are rated 2000 mah (1900 mah minimum)… (yes, I know, mAh, not mah, but it’s faster to type mah – although not so much faster if I have to write a separate sentence talking about it :) )
