AA rechargeable lithium ion batteries?

I have been going over my old battery/charger (and cable) collection. rechargeable

My old standby rechargeable AA is the Eneloop Ni-MH. But then I saw these clever rechargeable Li-Ion AAs -- you charge them via micro USB. Wirecutter doesn't have any research on the question, yet, so I thought to ask what experiences anybody has had with Li-Ion AAs in general and whether anybody has a brand they can recommend.

Confession: most of my USB chargers are USB-A and arrived as part of some product bundle. Squinting at the numbers they are all 1A -- one was even lower. I have one Apple 2A charger, and I don't know where it came from, lol. Wirecutter had some good recommendations so I have an upgrade en route.
