I've had good results in a number of applications with any of the
"pre-charged" is the key. That's the normal marketing-speak for
Eneloops are a very safe bet.

I found that the standard Eneloops were better for my KX3 than the Eneloop
Pro. While the Eneloop Pro has a higher total capacity at lower rates of
discharge than the standard Eneloop, my samples had a higher internal
resistance than the standard Eneloop. That translated into a greater
voltage sag when operating at 10 watts with the Eneloop Pro cells compared
to the standard Eneloops, and so a shorter period of time before 5 watts
was maximum transmission power limit, and end of useful charge even at 5
watts came more quickly with the Pro cells compared to the standard cells.
I'm sorry I don't have more hard numbers to present, and perhaps I just had
a bad batch of Eneloop Pro cells, but it does make sense to me that in
order to get 20% more capacity at low discharge rates, internal resistance,
which is more critical at high discharge rates, might have to be sacrificed.
