Apple rechargeable batteries found to be more expensive rebrands

Those $29 Apple rechargeable batteries?  Yeah, they are just rebranded Sanyos.  The good news is that they are some of the best on the market, Engadget saying that they retain more than 75% of their charge after three years of use.

Better news?  You don’t have to pay that pesky Apple tax to get on board with rechargeables.  Amazon’s got some pretty solid deals on eneloops.

Amazon sells the Sanyo versions for $18 for 4 batteries with charger.
