Are these Eneloop cells?

After trying the Eneloop cells at the Remnant Endurance Race, I'm interested in getting some myself. I was told you get the gray Eneloop cells with the green stripe. When I searched, these came up:

Are they the same thing even though they say Amazon basics?

These would compare closer to the eneloop pro. These were the favorite cells that I ran in the enduro. They can sustain a higher voltage under moderate discharge compared to the eneloop. I ran the, eneloop pro, pn/peak 900. The downside is that they weigh slightly more than the eneloop. So far this has been my favorite cell, but I don't have enough cycles on them to see how they do in cycle life.

Eneloop regardless of color is the same cell as the white(800mah rated, 750mah minimum). When new colors are released, it guarantees you the latest cells produced. I am a firm believer that even with the eneloop, shelf life hurts battery performance. I have a bunch of different colors of eneloop cells and they all get roughly the same numbers.

more or less. I have a bin full of sets of real Eneloops and those Amazon Basics, and I can't tell the difference while driving. I find them to be entirely adequate, and hope to some day be such a good driver and my car is tuned so well that I need something better, but until then, they're great.

I just ordered a set and they are made in Japan cells and they have HR3 printed on them just like the eneloops.
