Best AA/AAA charger

I have a nice charger (XTAR VP4 Plus Dragon), but I use a lot of enloops and I would gladly buy something dedicated exclusively to them: convenience, etc. As I care about refreshing modes, analysis, etc., an advanced model is involved. And since it is advanced, it is better to buy it once and for all. What charger do you consider to be the best on the market today? I was thinking about the Maha / Powerex MH-C9000 Pro or the Skyrc NC2200. Which one would you recommend? Or maybe something else that I don’t know?

PS. I’m sorry, my English is poor.

I’ve got a bunch of chargers, including a C9000 Wizard One and it just comes down to ‘how much do you want fiddle with things?’.

The SkyRC M3000 is still at the pinnacle.

Thank you Chris, that’s good advice. But I prefer to wait for the MC3000 update for the protected 21700. Then it will be suitable for all large cells. Also interesting is the development of the Xtar for 26800. Now Skyrc has released a new model for AA / AAA and it looks good. https://www.skyrc.com/nc2200

How do you rate the NC2200? How is it different from NC2600 and Maha? Or maybe you can recommend something even better?

Someone suggested a charger made to only charge the type of battery you are charging would be wise choice.

Someone was having trouble with charger that charged different chemistries. I only use eneloop so I use eneloop brand charger.

I too only use eneloop so just use the charger that can be bought with the batteries. I’d figure Panasonic/Sanyo would know a thing or two about eneloops.

Panasonic/Sanyo is a good option, but I have a feeling Skyrc/Maha (others) is not worse.

Here they recommend the Skyrc NC2600 as the best solution. I do not know how the NC2600 is compared to the new NC2200 …

Maha. Have the old one and new one. The newer one is smaller and has memory setting so not a much button pushing.
