Sanyo Eneloopy, the Dog-Gone Battery Tester

Here's Eneloopy, a little doggie into which you insert one of Sanyo's Eneloop rechargeable batteries, and when you press the button on his chest, his nose lights up if there's still any charge left.

Sanyo introduced its Eneloop batteries about a year ago, with their chief attribute being they arrive to you fully charged. Unlike other rechargeable batteries, they only lose a small percentage of their charge over time.

What, do you stick the battery up the little doggie's ass? Please, say it ain't so. A couple of pics illustrate how it works, after the jump.

Sanyo didn't mention if these testers would work with other batteries, but we can't see any reason why they wouldn't. Pricing and avilability weren't announced yet.
