Hi,
I bought both of these chargers, the LittoKala is very easy to use(instructions not provided), and the Opus is very advanced with a lot of features.
There are reviews for both chargers in the forum.
Both chargers handle all/most cells
Opus
LiitoKala

I have this one. It works great. La Crosse Technology BC-700 Alpha Power Battery Charger https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000RSOV50/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_D.zqxbNA5QTGQ

I don’t have personal experience with them, but I’ve heard a ton of great feedback on La Crosse chargers like what Zahmbie mentioned… if you’re willing to spend that much.

If you’re looking for something cheaper, I’d recommend the Eneloop individual cell charger. It comes stand alone or with most of their battery packs. I’ve got one and it works great!

With 4x AA’s ($17):

Why not future-proof yourself and get a versatile Xtar VC4 which will also do a really wide range of Li-ion’s?

I have one spare if you want it for free its a dumb charger so it just puts in a certain current for a set amount of time so i do not use it because i have smart chargers already.

That Aldi charger looks ok, it seems to charge 4 C/D cells or 6 AA/AAA and also 9V. Do you have a link to any reviews?

I bought several Aldi Smart Chargers in May'15 based on german reviews & OzBargain input (for myself & family members).  It is Very Good, & Very versatile.  wink

Thanks guys, I’m going to get one. It has to be better than my current charger that chargers in series, at least it only cost $1.00 and came with car charger, “wall wart” and usb cable.
