    Inconsistent Charging

    I bought this to replace the practice of burning through disposable AA and 9-volt batteries in audio equipment. The AA batteries charged very quickly (up to 8 at a time), but the 9-volt battery (only one can be charged at a time) took well over 10 hours. If the battery was disconnected or the charger was unplugged, the charge meter on the charger would indicate that the 9-volt battery charge had dropped back to 0 and seemingly reset the charge process. A freshly charged (4 bars on the charge meter) AA battery would also drop back to a partial charge according to the charge meter when it was removed. I could have put up with this, but the automatic shut off stopped working and the AA batteries started overheating. I specifically got this model because it was supposed to be able to charge AAA, AA, C, D, and 9-volt batteries, but it does not seem to work well when trying to charge different types at the same time. The charge indicator seems to be very inaccurate and the layout of the battery connectors on the charger itself would benefit from more space. In my opinion, the product would work better if: 1. the adapter was not stowed in the charging compartment, but instead locked into place on one end as it's a hassle to move the spring-loaded sliders out of the way while trying to line up the plug on the adapter 2. the charging compartment itself was large enough to move the 9-volt connector out of the way of the first four AA terminals 3. the automatic shut off worked and the charge indicator was more accurate

    Forget spending hundreds of dollars on disposables

    This charger is one of the most economical purchases I've ever made. Do you have a baby or toddler? If so, you should own one of these, they recharge everything from the baby swing, crib aquarium to all of those battery operated toys requiring the "AA/AAA's", "C's", D's and even the annoying 9V's......you name it, this charger has you covered. We also use these rechargeables in many of our household items; wireless mice, digital picture frames, carbon monoxide/smoke detectors, flashlights, remote controls, gaming controls, clocks.............the list goes on and on. As a buyer, we are using them at our business and saving thousands all while being green and alleviating waste from our landfills.

    I bought this since I wanted something that could charge batteries in all sizes and I don't like the "spacers" for fitting AA batteries in to C and D slots. I do realize that Energizer rechargable batteries use cells only slightly larger than AA in these, they are however less messy to use and I'm using them in clocks and flashlights that are easy to access and I don't mind the need to change them that often. It charges at a reasonable rate and gives good indication of how far it's coming along. If you need a rechargeable that gets the same amount of capacity as an Alkaline C,D, 9V from your battery so you don't need to charge as much go with a Powerex charger and their batteries. If being forced to charge in pairs for AAA or AA bothers you, I have a few devices that use 3 batteries instead of 2, this unit requires it.

    Purchased to keep game controllers going longer for less money and it's already paying itself off. #1 favorite feature is it charges ANY mAh rated battery. Throw away those dinky wall units. No really. Do it. (I haven't tested other battery brands in this charger yet btw.) Looks nice, has flimsy but sleek cover that hides the charging compartment. Pretty blue LED light panel. Auto shut-off feature allows me to "forget" about the batteries without worrying. Unit will stay lit to indicate full charge for a while then turn itself completely off! :) Wow. Only holds ONE square 9volt at a time which takes up two rows for other batteries which is why I'm rating 4 star. Bad design! C'mon Energizer really? (HINT: Metal detectors and other such devices take multiple square batteries to operate.)

    I have a lot of electronic items -- such as camera flashes, recorders, etc. that use a mix of AAA, AA, C and D batteries. I had a lot of rechargeable batteries and chargers and was constantly annoyed by two things: 1) I needed different chargers for different size batteries, and 2) my AAA and AA chargers could only charge four batteries at a time. I bought this unit so that I could have a single charger for all my batteries and so that I could charge up to 8 AA and AAA batteries at the same time. It accomplishes that goal but charges batteries much more quickly than I expected. If you use a lot of rechargeable batteries, this charger will make keeping your batteries charged much easier at a very reasonable cost. Highly recommended.

    BEST Energizer charger

    In my experience this is the ONLY Energizer charger worth my money. I started with 2 wall plug chargers both fail to recognize batteries often. Then i got the 2 rapid chargers, they report half of my batteries defective (blinking light). I tried the family charger with the clear plastic top, it worked for one day. Good thing I kept my receipt. Got this one, the most expensive model. WORKS GREAT. Even charges the batteries that the rapid charger just "blinks" at glad I saved them. F.Y.I. - My household uses a lot of AA batteries 4 Wii motes 4 Xbox 360 controllers & 4 automatic air fresheners doing the most damage.

    Holds any Size Battery you need

    This charger can hold size 9volt AAA, AA, C, D . We all use batteries for everything. Tv remotes, computer mouse, Xbox remote, DVD, remote cars, ect... What a great option to have a brand new battery life in less than a 4hr charge it takes to have full batteries that last a really long time! Then just charge them again up to 1,000 times!!! I'm not running to the store to buy batteries for Anything. Also no running to your local best buy to recycle the batteries since they should NOT be thrown out in the trash. If you are also ECO friendly this should be your first option for buying batteries. They pay for themselves after the 3rd charge. BUY IT!!

    A Truly Universal Charger

    This truly universal charger is fabulous, because it charges either 4 size D, 4 - 8 size C, 4 - 8 size AA, 4 - 8 size AAA, or 1 size 9-volt batteries/battery at any given time. I acquired it at an awesome price too.. The unit has an indicator light, when the batteries are charging, which automatically shuts off once the charging process is compete. So, there is zero chance of ever overcharging the batteries. One genuinely exquisite feature is how the included adapter plugs inside the charger unit to keep it safe from loss. Once the AC adapter is tucked inside, the unit can be completely closed and stored away for safekeeping until the next use.
