Honestly don't know, it's hard to find info with amazon being so secretive. Although someone was able to find that their alkaline batteries are made by Fujitsu subsidiary in Indonesia. https://onezero.medium.com/unraveling-the-secret-supply-chain-behind-an-amazonbasics-battery-e7b9ead4d72e . Reading through Amazon's pages, Amazon has a loads of battery options/listings: - and from snippets of answers apparently: (the BXXX… are model numbers) "UPDATES B00HZV9TGS: Continue to be made in Japan, still rated 2400mAh, but are now in silver wrapper. Pre-charged using solar energy. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HZV9TGS/ref=sspa_dk_detail_0?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B00HZV9TGS&pd_rd_wg=HAtUc&pd_rd_r=X05E5TBA5SX43V3DTHCV&pd_rd_w=N4FON B00CWNMV4G: Still made in Japan, still rated 2000mAh, but now in black wrapper. Pre-charged using solar energy. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CWNMV4G/ref=sspa_dk_detail_0?pd_rd_i=B00CWNMXQW&pd_rd_wg=gTbjN&pd_rd_r=E16RNY9XM9QJG1FNJ216&pd_rd_w=LdFQd&th=1 And now these ... ? Maybe somebody else can comment/add data. B00HZV9WTM: Made in Japan, rated 2400mAh, silver wrapper, pre-charged using solar power. https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-High-Capacity-Rechargeable-Batteries-Pre-charged/dp/B00HZV9WTM/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1526151338&sr=1-3&keywords=amazon+basic+rechargeable+batteries+aa Didn't see B0030T1NEA, but I gotta run! see less By Jill-of-All-Trades on May 12, 2018 To clarify, there are three different versions of AmazonBasic rechargeable NiMH batteries: - The original AmazonBasics batteries came in black wrappers. They are made in China and have the capacity rating of 2000mAh. They are NOT as good as Sanyo eneloop batteries. ASIN:B0030T1NEA AmazonBasics AA NiMH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries - The second version of AmazonBasics batteries came in white wrappers. They are made in Japan and also have the capacity rating of 2000mAh. They are (according to me) rebranded 2nd-gen Sanyo eneloop, so you can expect at least 1500 cycles lifespan. ASIN:B00CWNMV4G AmazonBasics Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries - The third version is also black but called 'high-capacity'. They are (according to me) rebranded Sanyo XX. They are rated 2400mAh, but actual capacity is around 2550mAh, just like Sanyo XX. The rated lifespan of the XX is only 500 cycles. ASIN:B00HZV9TGS AmazonBasics High-Capacity Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries see less By NLee the Engineer on October 26, 2014 NLee the Engineer and others, the batteries say Ni-MH 1.2V min32400mAh AA HR6 but have a grey casing and NOT a black one. Is this an off brand? They are made in Japan " (Sanyo was purchased by Panasonic, Eneloop series name was kept) So I guess the takeaway would be: Look for the right one, and you can probably find the same Eneloop (sanyo/panasonic) or Ikea Ladda on Amazon. And also that Amazon really likes to play with their production and being secretive about the products, including origin. That is of course if they didn't change it (again). So can't really tell if they are identical if the batteries never keep the same spec and lot of users report different capacities then what is written on the label. Also just feeling the Ikea Ladda more confidence inspiring, because they just kept the same 2450 mAh rating and everything. They are cheaper at 4-pack (but amazon sells many different ones as I established, so idk), but I couldn't find them sold in bigger packs from Ikea directly.

It really seems like all that confusion is helping them sell more honestly.

Probably! Checked those links and Amazon tells me I've ordered them all at various times. Still not so clear. Fortunately, I've got an IKEA twenty minutes away! Thanks again.
