AA and AAA NiMH Quick Battery Charger - Includes 4-pack of 2800mAh Rechargeable AA Ni-MH Batteries - 110/220V.
It's hard to find a better value in the rechargeable battery world. The charger is excellent. Relatively quick charging, with indicator lights that tell you when it's charging and, when it's done.(you really want this feature in a charger) When not in use the electrical plug folds flat into the charger. Makes storage more convienent. The included batteries are fine. Heck, they might be excellent, I ain't gonna spend an infinite amount of time compairing batteries. I can tell you the higher the mAH rating the more "juice" they got. 2800 is pretty darn high. I purchased additional batteries(can't remember brand) with a lower mAH rating that I charge with this charger also. Have converted entire household over to rechargeable. Couldn't be happier. In response to people who mention they don't last long in digital cameras. Digital cameras suck the "juice" out of a battery faster than a teenager can suck the funds out of your bank account. It's not the battery, it's the camera.
This was a good deal for the price. I bought this because the batteries were rated at 2800mAh. This would be a very good price for the batteries alone if they were actually 2800mAh rated. I have a Powerex smart charger and it reads and displays the actual mAh of the battery. These are only 1700mAh. Not bad, especially considering most of the battery manufacturers overrate their batteries.
I had not had time to use the charger prior to being out of the country. On my return, I wanted to use the recharged batteries. The Synergy charger did not charge the Synergy batteries and the Synergy batteries didn't work. I bought another charger and confirmed the Synergy batteries were not chargable. Non of my rechargable batteries worked with the Synergy charger and the Synergy batteries did not work with another charger. The new charger was able to charge a variety of other batteries.
So I first purchased 1 set of these batteries in November of 2012. Reason for the purchase was that I wasn't to happy with the LENMAR 2700MAH batteries that I purchased at a local Frys electronics store. When I tested the lenmars, the voltage discharge rate could not remain high enough to run my childrens electronics such as their leap pads, and leapster game systems.
These are terrific batteries. This was purchased with a Nikon L830 as a gift. While there were other choices we had previously purchased 2 of them for ourselves. They have been charged too many times to count but enough for us to question if there is a "lifespan" for them! So far so good! They also charge faster than most. Well then why only 4 stars and not 5? We have found it very difficult to remove the batteries once they are charged; that is the only complaint. Will definitely buy them again - if we need to! ;)
I've gotten five of these and I'm loving every minute of it no more batteries that are only 70% used up and the than the ones I got the small bucket which could still be used not in flashes but TV remote controls and other devices these batteries have charged at least 60 times each and having five sets of them for use with my camera flashes and the extra charge they give may not be as powerful and long-lasting as the Energizer eight or nine times lithium batteries but it's a lot cheaper and more reliable
