I got an Energizer compact charger from Sainsburys (York) yesterday with 6 1300mAH cells for £3.99 - they were just on the shelves as normal but probably a clearance price - might be worth a look in your local store. 1300mAH is pretty weak for NiMh, but then 1700mAH isn't exactly good these days - still fine for torches, remotes etc.

Nice find, bought one for 360 and Wii controllers

cheers mate

just ordered one, even though ive already got a charger its better to have a duracell one than a chinese made one (the duracell one is probably made in china anyway lol)

Just looked it up, this is from a seller though, not Amazon so no free delivery - postage cost is £4.50 so total is £7.23

I have reserved these, thanks!

Will they be sufficient for a digital camera? I know it says so in the description but...

Anybody?

All NiMh AA have the same voltage 0f 1.2V compared to 1.5V in an alkaline cell

The mAh refers to how long they will last - the bigger the number the longer they deliver so you get the same voltage out of all AA NiMh but 1700mAh don't last as long as the 2500mAh you might get from 7 day shop.

There were some cheap ones from the ledshoppe.com/ind…tml - but they were pants

will depend on the type/make of camera i guess. i have been using 1700's in my Fuji 5600 and it will take around 700 photos on a full charge but the camera is known for its battery life.

1700mAH batteries are lame, technology has moved on so much since then.

You need some of these puppies:

Yep, get 2700 or 2800 mAh AAs.

I've bought 12 of those 7dayshop (2700mAh) AA batteries for my camping hols back in Feb this year.

I found the batteries to be wider than standard AA batteries. Only by a fraction of a millimetre, but it meant I couldn't fit them into my etrex yellow gps, and the occasionally get stuck in my portable radio.

May of been a faulty batch, or they fixed the issue since.

Common probably with many chinese manufactured rechargeables - its usually the squarer profile around the top than regular cells that causes the problem. Remember that high-capacity sells take a lot longer to charge (a 2600mAH will take more than twice the length of time it takes to charge a 1300mAH cell) and sometimes that extra capacity isn't really needed (although for digicams/other handheld electronics the higher capacity the better!).

will the more powerful batteries work fine in this charger?

I probably should of known that, but I didn't. Battery chargers usually come in two flavours, ones that sense how full the batteries are and switch off, and the others have a timer.

Think mine has a timer - never thought of charging the batteries up for a second time. I maybe should invest in a sensor type...

think this charger is aimed at mp3 player users

I bought a Uniross sprint 1 hour charger a couple of weeks ago. Although you are right that 2600mAH batteries will take twice the time. When that extra time is only another hour, i don't think most people will be too bothered. Besides you can always get 15 min chargers if you are in a hurry.

You are right, I just compared my Uniross 2700 NiMH batteries to regular alkaline and they are 1-2mm wider in diameter and length. Uniross are supposedly one of the best makes and I bought them from a reputable store, so I don't think you just got dodgy knock-offs.

I've just picked one up in Argos - heat and rep added.
To be fair on the product, it does show on the reverse label a sliding scale of battery power against product. I never intended to run a milk float from it. However, this is ideal for my personal DAB radio.

Got one of these in Argos today. The packaging says 8 hour recharge and not 2 hours as mentioned on their site. As the fairly quick charging time was the main reason for buying it, it will be going back.

Thats because keywords like battery or charger is common for mobiles & battery charger. Using another keyword like rechargeable would filter search results

now reduced to £3.49

Forget about these 8 hr chargers you may as well get this £7 one from Mymemory.com and charge your battery in 15 mins or less! For a few quid more it will transform the way you use rechargeables as you will save enormous amount of time waiting.
