Eneloopy Battery Tester

By Andrew Liszewski

Sanyo is hoping to boost the popularity of their eneloop rechargeable batteries with this overly cute tester named eneloopy, which is clearly an homage or parody of the Peanuts’ character Snoopy. But instead of hanging out with Woodstock or engaging the Red Baron in air-to-air combat, eneloopy will accept a AA or AAA battery (using his food dish spacer) and will indicate its charge level with his light-up LED nose.

Green means the battery’s fully charged, orange means it’s partially charged, red means it needs to be charged, and of course off means the battery’s completely dead. eneloopy will be available in Japan bundled with a set of eneloop batteries sometime in November, though pricing info hasn’t been announced.

    So, I have another way of testing batteries. If my thing works the batteries are good, if my thing don't work they are bad.

    Wow, what a revelation.

    I think it's a cute idea. Plus it will help kids with their battery management. I don't think it looks like Snoopy, but I do think it's cute. I would want one if they are a decent size. It's hard to judge from the picture.

    The whole package deal is rather cute, with the different colored batteries. But it seems large, I'd rather have something small and discrete.
