Energizer AA/AAA 1 Hour Charger with 4 AA NiMH Rechargeable Batteries (Charges AA or AAA batteries in 1 hour or less)


View on Amazon


If you’re in a hurry, then a battery charger which delivers a full charge to your  batteries in one hour or less may be just what you’re looking for. Power gauge keeps you updated on the amount of charge in your batteries. Individual channels allow charging of 1 to 4 batteries at a time. Auto safety shut-off feature prevents damage from overcharging, maximizing battery performance. Compatible with all AAA or AA NiMH rechargeable batteries.


Comment:

Generally these are highly rated by the buying public.

The odd few bad reviews seem to revolve around the included batteries being faulty in some way or the spring clips breaking, but this can be the result of buying from “other sellers” on Amazon! Although Amazon doesn’t endorse the sale of counterfeit goods (brand knock-offs) some do slip through the net.

EBL 8-Bay Battery Charger for AA AAA NIMH NICD Rechargeable Batteries


View on Amazon

More than 4 batteries to charge? This EBL 8-bay battery charger will charge your cells in groups of 2,4,6 or 8. Suitable for Ni-MH and Ni-Cd rechargeable batteries. Its MCU automatically stops the charging process if non-rechargeable batteries are used, if the device is connected to an incorrect input voltage, or if a fault or short-circuit is detected. Protection against over-charging or overheating.


Comment:

Another highly-rated charger. A little bulky in storage with its power lead compared with devices which plug directly into the wall socket, but a very versatile unit with welcome safety features. Some batteries will recharge in 1-2 hours, others may take a few hours.
