sanyo 2500 ma nimh cells.
Since the market here is flooded with fake batteries<mostly from China>,i shall appreciate anyones comments on the originality of it.
I have recently purchased some Sanyo superlattice alloy 2500 nimh, aa size,cells in blister pack,no. HR-3U-2BP-2500.They seem to be quite well made
and they work alright,.but there is one peculiar thing about them.On the bottom of each cell,the words 'HR' are stamped< on the metal negative teminal>.Can somebody confirm having the same on their"s too.
Yes they are original
I bought HR-3U-2BP-2100 a year ago with a sanyo quick charger.They are excellent batteries. And they too have HR on the bottom. On one charge a set of 4 batteries gives me around 600 photos without flash on my FujiFilm FinePix s3000 camera. And with flash half the time , I get around 350-450 photos.
I am planning to buy another set ,as spare batteries(2500mAH). I have searched the net for genuine Sanyo batteries and found this link.
See the pictures of batteries on this site , and check with the local ones for their originality.
I have a set of Sanyo 2500mah, but "HR" is NOT stamped on the bottom. The HR is in the model number. I bought mine at BatteryBob.com at

Ive havent had any problem with these batteries. I found a supplier in the uk who seem to be very cheap.
Sanyo nimh 2500 mah
For a few of us in the Philippines, our experience has been terrible with this particular battery. It drains quite fast, a whole lot faster than the 2100mah! Just to give you an example - i have 2 motorola FRS radios that use 3 AA's each...after a full charge, it starts to beep that level is low after 3 days...and it is not left on. It is used a maximum of 5 minutes 2 times a day...
By the way, based on the earlier posts, mine do have the "HR" mark on the bottom...
Needless to say we are very very disappointed with it.
