Unbelievably quick. Use the right batteries!

I was going through AA batteries at an alarming rate to power a LED motion sensing emergency/night light in my garage. The 2,650 mAh batteries provide good life between charges and very good power output. But the best thing is that when they go down, the charger brings them back to life in very short order. One of my best buys! I am using rechargeables for just about anything that requires AA and AAA cells.

Cant even power my mouse

I purchased duracell rechargeables as i like duracell products and they seemed like a good idea. I have four sets of AA size batteries and only two sets charge enough to use my mouse, the other two highlight the warning light and dont do anything else. I will continue to use duracell batteries but never the rechargeable type again and i will not recommend them to anyone.

Very Pleased

I bought this system specifically for keeping batteries on hand for the Apple Wireless Trackpad and Wireless Keyboard. I have been very pleased with the results. Exceeds my expectations, which is always nice.

Worst charger on the market

By

from Apache Junction, AZ  -  Professional

This charger will not charge a set of batteries for more than 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Rechargeable batteries must be fully charged and discharged to maintain their life. This charger does not even come close to a full charge on a set of batteries. Based on how long a charge lasts, it is only charging the batteries up to approximately 20% of a full charge for both 2000 mAh and 2650 mAh batteries. This charger will render rechargeable batteries useless in short order. Absolutely NOT recommended.

Batteries not keeping charge

By

from California  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I've had this charger for about two months now and am growing increasingly disatisfied with it. I use the batteries that come with this unit and have purchase two additional sets. My main uses are with my 580ex flash, wireless joystick and desk lights for when working at night. Bottom line, I don't believe this unit is properly charging the batteries to their full capacity. On my flash, the recycling time is poor at best, I have to recharge the batteries on my joystick at least once a week and my overhead desk lights maintain their brightness for five hours max. I'm considering a six to eight hour charger, thinking this will give a full, longer charge. This unit is great if you're pressed for time but is a hassel having to recharge too frequently.

great charger

By

from Huntsville, AL

I got one of these at the same time I got my new camera back in the summer and have been very satisfied with the charger and the batteries. The batteries even when shooting with flash have never died during a shoot. Even when shooting well over 500 frames. Without using flash I have shot 7-800 frames easily without recharging. I regularly review images on the LCD of my camera and that does not even drain the power from these batteries. The charger is fairly easy to use with ready light showing that it is getting power and in use. When charged the ready light goes out and few minutes later the fan will shut off automatically to keep from wearing them out. My only dislike is it is a three part system consisting of the Charger, Plug and I guess the power regulator. The plug connects to the center piece which is a large 1x2x5 inch block which has a 1/8" diameter cable that plugs into the charger. I prefer this was all one or 2 sections as I expect this is most likely where something will go wrong and does take up some space. This does give you several feet of cable as well as a way to disconnect prior to changing out batteries so it is not a major problem. I have never timed it, but it does seem to take right around 15 minutes give or take a few to charge a set of four from empty to full charge. The batteries do get a little warm after charging, but the built in fan keeps them and the charger both cooler than any over night charger I have used. I plan on getting another so I can keep one in my bag and one at home.
