Any Experience with This Charger on ebay?

Even though my Nitecore i4 Intellicharger is supposed to charge C Batteries, the button does not make contact. I have no rechargeable C batteries, but trying a Duracell in it there was no contact that I could see. Maybe it charges batteries with no button.

Accordingly I checked ebay and found this charger “Charger for D/ C/ AA/ AAA/ 9V NI-MH/Ni-Cd Battery”

It is rather cheap in price, but I do not want to spend much on a charger I will seldom use.

Any advice? Thanks.
Jerry

no but it shows 150ma charge rate which would take a good day and a half to charge a high capacity “c” cell. check these out for a little more but charge rates are roughly 6-7 times more .

Thanks for the help. I have pretty well decided that the adapter using AA Eneloops is the best way to go for me.
