Only way for rechargeable batteries to be "pre-charged" is that they are "stay charged" as you put it. (otherwise, all charge would be withdrawn by the time one opens up the package)
Hmm, not to nit-pick, but there's a big difference between a "charged" battery at 85% capacity and one that's already down to 30%. Why else does Duracell market both products (separately)? I think there is an implied or real difference in performance.

NLee's review on the GoEasy charger set is concerning - What were those people in Duracell thinking when they introduce this Duracell GoEasy Charger? The new 'GoEasy' charger has exactly the same spec as the old Duracell Mini Charger CEF20. Both of them are smart chargers that recharge 1-2 AA cells at 280mA, which gives charging time of 6-8 hours. The only diffference is in their shapes.
But the more disturbing news is: capacity of the rechargeable AA cells included in this package is only 1700mAh. Yes, you heard right, the capacity is LOWER than that of all the existing Duracell Pre Charged AA (2000-2100mAh). Furthermore, those 1700mAh cells do not say 'Pre Charged' on them (even though they share the same color scheme with Duracell Pre Charged cells). Why in the world should people pay a higher price for this 'new' package, only to get essentially the same old charger, plus two lower capacity batteries that are not even Pre Charged? Can anyone confirm whether the AA's have only 1700mAh capacity? What about the AAA's?

Duracell StayCharged advertises to recharge up to 400x. The Sanyo Eneloop advertises to recharge up to 1500x. Any truth to this in real use?

Thanks, got in with 1 minute 25 seconds to spare. What I really need is more batteries!!! Oh well that is why I am here, bargains, bargains and more bargains.
Not such a great deal if you remeber duracell NiMH recharge only 400 times.
Fujicell batteries recharge 1000 times the AA battreirs are rated at 2800 mah $5.95 and the AA are rated at 1100 mah $5.24 The batteries charger $19.95 is USB/Mains - Universal voltage for use worldwide, external power function to charge phones and other deveices up to 11,400 mah of power, free cigarette charging adapter to charge from car, free us shipping http://www.bestbodyshaver.com/aa-battery-nimh-2800-mah-recharges...
Both AA and AAA are the black tops and say made in China. The 1700 mAh AA are NOT pre-charged/low self discharge. Each 800 mAh newer type stay charged AAA took between 2 and 3 hours to charge, definately lower than 85% of capacity. Black tops (Ray-O-Vac clones) are not as good as white tops (Eneloop clones). 12 AAA`s were lose in a zip lock bag.

They're far less useful than LSD which can retain 85% charge after a year (Eneloops can do even better: 75% after THREE years). There's a few situations where high-discharge NiMH can shine, but few people want the bother of using batteries hot off the charger and constantly topping off batteries every few weeks.
