    Don't Waste Your Time or Money

    After observing my first Energizer AC Charger remain in Red/Charging mode for 24 hours, I traded out that clearly ‘defective’ unit for a new one at my local retailer. The second ran overnight and still displayed Red/Charging in the morning. The answers I got from Tech Support were, and remain, a shocking joke. I was calmly informed that “Well, sir; the Red light only means that the unit has been plugged into a live outlet and a battery has been mounted into the recharger.” I unfortunately followed up with a question regarding the Green / Charge Complete mode and got back: “Well, no. The package is wrong. The light will never turn Green. The unit stays Red when it is plugged in and has a battery.” My eyes rolled about cross-eyed when the Tech offered up: “People are supposed to just unplug the charger at the times in the chart on the printed packaged insert pamphlet that tells you how long your battery size (i.e. AA) and capacity (i.e. 1300mAh ) are supposed to charge for. And you shouldn’t go over that time or it will probably damage the battery.” “Oh, and it is supposed to cut off after 11 hours but I’m not sure it does but that is too long for any battery type to be in it.” I guess Energizer just doesn’t care about their products. Needless to say, it is going back to the store. I suppose that if you would love to have to babysit your rechargeable battery Recharging Station using a timer on your phone / generic kitchen timer, then this thing is the item for you.

    Bought this and did not open the package until 25 days after I bought it because I did not need to use it right away. When I did need the item, I opened it and then had to charge it for 24 hours. The 24 hours came and the batteries were still not charged up at all. I plugged the charger back in and waited another 24 hours. Still the batteries were not charged. I removed the batteries from the charger and changed the positions of the batteries and tried to charge it again for the 3rd time. 24 hours later and still no power in the batteries. Yes I know the electrical outlet works - so that is not the problem. Now that 25 - 30 days have passed since the day I bought this item, I cannot return them to bestbuy. The return window has passed. Oh well that really stinks. So the bottom line here is that defective Energizer - AC Charger and batteries brand new in the package did not work. So if you get this item from bestbuy, I suggest that you open it and charge them up as soon as you get home. If they do not work bring them back the next day... Good luck!

    Purchased it recently, with the primary use being in external flash gun for my DSLR /photography. Charging speed is fine, the indicator is big (see picture) and bright. The charge retention is quite well as of yet. Dont know how long.it would remain the same as every rechargeable battery has a cycle life and the optimal use depends in part on the user as well. So fast so good, like it. Used it in a birthday party, where I took pictures officially and it did do its job well as and when I needed it.

    Great batteries and charger. The charger can take up to 11 hours to recharge, because it will auto shut off at this time, but we prefer these long chargers. We have used fast 10 minute rechargers in the past and although its convenient that it doesnt take a long time, it lowers the life of the battery and amount of recharges. Out of the 2 batteries we had in the past, 1 is able to be recharged, but the other one isn't. It died much quicker than it should have. Plus with fast chargers, the batteries get very warm. I prefer the slow chargers, but you have to have backup batteries while you are recharging because the recharge takes hours and hours.

    Excellent Battery Charger with batteries

    I received an email from Best Buy for $5 because they missed me.... That's so sweet. I went to the store with the $5 certificate to browser around. Their rechargeable batteries are fairly reasonably priced. For $14.99 minus $5, which comes out to be $9.99, I bought the Energizer Rechargeable battery charger/battery combo. It's a great deal since the four (4) batteries alone cost about $10.00! I used these batteries for my AA battery fan. The weather in 2015 has been hot, hot, hot! Everyday when I come home from work, I open the window and use these batteries to run the fan. The fan runs for about 5 hours. The charger is slower. It takes about 11 hours to charge the batteries. The system work very well. The batteries are 1500mAh and made in China. The charger is made in China. They are of excellent quality and build. Initially when it charges their is one big red light. When it is completed, it is a beautiful green light! I would recommend this to anyone!

    The Energizer four (4) 1500mAh battery and charger combo is a great deal even at regular price $14.99. Best buy was nice enough to reward me with $5, so I was able to pay $9.99. That is a steal! The batteries alone cost $10.99. The batteries came pre-charged with 1.29 Volts. That is more than the 1.25 Volts I am used to with NiMH batteries. The charger is slow. For 600mAh it takes a little over 2 hours. But for the 1500mAh batteries it took 10 - 11 hours! There is only one great big indicator light. Its red while charging. It is an attractive green when charging is complete. One draw back with the charger is that there is not a indicator for each of the two (2) banks. It is either done charging all or not. But this is a great deal. Good for home, but not good for traveling since it takes so long to charge.

    Energizer AC Charger With Rechargable Batteries

    Who dosen't have a need for high quality batteries, wireless keyboards, magic mouse, even my mop uses batteries. I was skeptical to use a rechargable battery, surely they couldn't be as powerful or last as long as a standard battery. I was wrong, these batteries can be recharged over and over and I haven't noticed any difference when comparing to standard batteries. The charger is so easy to use, snap the batteries in, ( it holds up to 4 batteries) and plug the charger into a socket, the indicator panel itself is huge, 1 1/2" x 2 1/2 " and will change from red to green when fully charged, no need to guess or search for an indicator button, you can see the light from across the room!

    I've read the many reviews and complaints that the red light on the charger does not turn green. Well, after more than 12hours of charging for the 1st time, it did turn green! I guess the reviewers were mislead by the 5hr charge time, but perhaps not for the initial charge. So, yes, give it some time, maybe even a whole day, before complaining about a "defective" charger. Oh, and plug it into the wall socket, not a surge protector or a cord. The only thing is it doesnt have seperate charge lights for each battery. And the batteries it comes with could have higher Mah, but for the price it's a good value.

    I'm completely satisfied with this purchase. The price point is low, it comes with 4 batteries (if you've established a charging rotating system, then it's all you need). However, it does take a few hours for the batteries to fully charge, but if you have a rotating system, then it's really a great product. The batteries don't hold the best charge and if you're using them for gaming, then you might find yourself rotating your batteries like every other day (really depends on your game play). I would recommend this product, it has served me well!

    I purchased a used gaming system. I'm not a gamer, but I wanted some rechargeable options with my controllers. I looked into some of the rechargeable packs made specifically for my type of system, however, I was not paying 20 bucks per controller, therefore, I explored other options. This product fit the bill. It was on sale for less than 10 bucks, which was a substantial savings compared to other places. The batteries have exceeded my expectations. As a matter of fact, I've only had to recharge once since I've had these batteries... both remotes! I am very pleased with the product, the price, and the purchase!

    Tired of endlessly buying batteries

    I grew tired and ran out of money endlessly buying batteries for my young children who would seem to always forget to turn off their toys. I love this charger and it works great, however it does not seem to turn off when the batteries are completely charged. Unit is suppose to have a Red glow when charging and after 6-8 hours turn green and turn off when complete. I plugged in at 5pm and the next morning at 8am unit is still red and warm/hot to the touch. Batteries are charged and work great I might have just bought a bad charger.

    This charger gets the job done but it isn't as advanced as others on the market. However the price is right and it comes with 4 AAs. The included batteries have a decent capacity but there are better ones out there. The problem with this charger is that it operates on a timer as opposed to a smart charger. This will get the job done if you're just charging batteries for kids toys and controllers but if you're serious about rechargeables you might want to step up to the next level.

    These are the best option for a parent trying to keep their child going and active while playing their game system... The charger comes with 4 fully charged AA batteries which are great and keep the charge for quiet a long time in a remote ... the charger block has a charging light indicator Red for charging ... green when the charge is complete and automatic shut off for a complete charge that doesn’t need to be used right now.... would like to have gotten some AAA Batteries too... Great Product

    I will say for what it is, this is a fantastic product! I bought I couple of these Energizer RECHARGE Recharable batteries and chargers about almost a year ago and so far they both work great. The batteries do take a little while too fully recharge but on a full charge they can go really far. I use them for my wireless mouse, degital cameras, portable gaming systems and they perform great for all of them. I like this one because the large LED light that glows red when charging and then green when they are ready is handy and works like a night light in the after hours.

    The employee who worked with me talked me into buying these batteries along with the charger because my boyfriend goesthrough a lot of batteries in his Xbox controller. I thought they would be beneficial for reducing waste and saving us money in the long run but on a full charge these batteries don't even last 2 days in his Xbox remote or even a week in our tv remote. I should have just bought another pack of insignia batteries, at least they're cheaper and last longer

    The only rechargeable batteries I had ever used before these were the ones that I got for my Wii which came with a charger too. One of those batteries did not work after about a year and the charging station broke too, so I needed to replace them and saw these instead. I'm so glad I got these because the charge fairly quickly and they are separate (unlike my Wii batteries where two were together in a pack that couldn't be separated). Now I can use these batteries for anything requiring AAs, and they last a long time before needing to be charged again too!

    Got these after going through about 3 sets of Duracells and 3 Duracell chargers. So far (after about 4 charge cycles) I have no complaints. I would skip the Duracells and get these. These actually recharge and the chargers last more than 2 charge cycles. Be aware that there are different amperages that are offered in the AA Size from Energizer, so make sure that you get the correct amperage to match your electronics (most electronics won't complain, but the amperage ratings go from 1300 all the way up to 2400 so just read the package).

    Energizer - AC Charger - Green ---> Great batteries and great charging system. I use them for my digital camera that eats up batteries like crazy. I actually have 2 of these units and when I need to shoot 500 or more pictures, I make sure that my batteries are charged and ready to go. Of course you can use these AAA batteries for anything that needs them not only digital cameras.

    With how much controllers and devices eat through batteries, it's almost imperative to have something that is rechargeable. Energizer has always been my brand of batteries to use and these are what I use in all my devices that require it. A full charge lasts about 20 hours in my xbox one controller. Make sure you have at least 2 or 4 extra batteries than what come in the pack because I guess it is required to have all 4 batteries in the charger for it to charge them. That way you can keep playing while the others charge.

    After careful consideration of various types of chargers, I chose Energizer because of the reputation and I wasn't disappointed. The charger is versatile as it's compatible with different voltages. It takes a long while to fully charge, hence the four stars but I found it's still a bargain as it does the job well. The batteries that came with it do last long before needing to be charged again. It also charges other rechargeable batteries very well. Happy with my purchase.
