I just looked at the back of my President's Choice charger, and it's made by .... Sanyo ! So that basically confirms that the batteries are indeed Eneloops ! So for $20 on clearance you get 4 eneloops and a charger at any Your Independant Grocer store !

Thanks...I wondered if that may be the problem but thought I would ask someone who is using them.

The ends of the 2400 eneloops are a bit shorter than normal, sometimes the contact points of the x10 need to be bent out a little bit to make connection with the battery.
At least that's what I had to do with my 710.

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout
