Looking for a very good AA - AAA charger

And i found this site's winners..

 

anyone ever heard of these chargers? i thought i had a good one, because it has a chip that detects the batteries charge until i realised that charging batteries in half an hours isn't so very great :d

Avoid the I-C3 batteries and chargers. That sort of charging destroys cells in about 50 charges. You can get 2300 claimed mAh LSD cells branded by Camelion - judging by how good their "2100mAh" ones are the claim may even be honest. But it'll be years till I have to find out with any luck. The LaCrosse charger they talk about is notorious for melting itself (and occasionally destroying cells) though this may now have been fixed.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

I've was looking at the same thing last night.  What Don was saying about the LaCrosse is correct.  Turns out they acknowledged this and fixed it with a firmware update and is now known as the LaCrosse BC-9009. I would go with the MaHa, except I don't particularly like pushing so many buttons just to get it to do what I want.

Its not so bad = Powerex = I like mine , sure does show how disappointing some battery capacity can be ... 

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….
