Found 2nd Aug 2016
Done some research on batteries for xbox one
(read this if interested http://www.filterjoe.com/2016/02/04/best-aa-batteries-and-chargers-2016/) and basically this is the best charger plus batteries

the charger matters and it charges in 2 hours, get 4 eneloop batteries (everyone is saying these are the best) and this pacakge is cheaper even if you buy from ebay from korea!

17 people give it 5/5 in amazon
amazon.co.uk/Ene…TF8

and the next cheapest I found was £30
maplin.co.uk/p/p…7ek

so seems like a deal to me (Just ordered one)
I hope this helps people who want to save money on batteries for xbox

Description

If you're looking to make the cost-effective, environmentally-sound transition to renewable power for your portable electronic devices, this package is a great way to start. If you're already using rechargeable batteries and would like to upgrade for higher performance and longer battery life, it's an excellent choice for that, as well. This high-tech Panasonic Eneleoop charger and the included high-performance Eneloop power cells are a great investment that will save you hundreds of pounds and help protect the planet, too.

This is a rapid charger for both AA and AAA NiMH cells, with features that set it well above conventional chargers. An on-board microprocessor monitors each cell and ends each individual charge at its peak. This technology ensures peak performance from each cell without overcharging and allows you to charge single batteries, whereas most chargers require batteries in pairs. Each charging station has an LED status indicator. The approximate charge time for a single AA cells is only 1.25 hours and four AA's will charge in about 3.5 hours. This version is equipped with a UK 3 pin plug.

The batteries included are Sanyo's premium Eneloop 1900mAh AA cells, featuring breakthrough technology that gives them an incredibly low self-discharge rate. This means that, unlike typical NiMH batteries, these will hold up to 85% of their charge after a year in storage and even retain 70% of the charge after a full 3 years. That makes them practical for use in high-demand devices that may not be used on a daily basis, like digital cameras and portable games. Even better, these third-generation batteries will last for as many as 1800 charging cycles, making them outlast the competition by months. They're reliable, durable and even dependable in low temperatures

If the savings in comparison to using disposable batteries isn't enough to convince you, consider the ecological advantages. You'll be throwing away much less, using less energy for recharging and when you've finally exhausted these batteries, they're recyclable. Why not start making a difference today?

I have this exact same charger and batteries, which I managed to get for £18 from Amazon UK (iCell Media seller) last November. I agree it's a good charger (it can charge batteries singly, whereas many require them to be in pairs), and "LSD" batteries like the Eneloops (low self-discharge, in other words, rechargable batteries that come pre-charged and don't run out quickly when left alone, or in low-drain devices like remotes) are definitely the way to go.
AA should be charged between 500ma over 6-8 hours so not to stress/cook them.
I'm started to think to go for this instead
hotukdeals.com/dea…323
£7.63 delivered

then get the AmazonBasics batteries
amazon.co.uk/Ama…TF8

which people are saying that they are the eneloop pro, which retail for much much more

pelago should I stick with my order? or get the other one?

EDIT: doing some more research the 7dayshop has a fundamental flaw, basically if the batterys are completely dead you wont be able to charge it with 7dayshop one (check the 2* comment)
This charger has been around for years under many badges. It is ok, but, as many users have pointed out, it completely falls over if a cell is over discharged. This happens frequently to me with motion sensing lights I have in several places. When you notice that one is not working, chances are at least one cell is flat.

There is nothing wrong with that, a more modern charger will then apply a voltage for a few seconds to revive the cell. Unfortunately, this was never incorporated into the logic of this charger and it reports no cell or a dead one.

You are then required to dig out that old charger you abandoned for this one, plug it in for 30 seconds, then put the "dead" cell back into this one. This is just stupid!

So, instead of getting this charger, buy a better one. You will find that some will also charge 18650 and other cells.

so im glad I got the one I posted

its rated for 2100 charge cycles using the 2 hour charging
and I've seen nothing but praise for this charger
I've no experience of that 7dayshop charger. I like the simplicity of the BQ CC16 - you just put the batteries in and plug the charger into the wall, no buttons - which makes it easier for "untrained" people to use.

I'm actually getting it for a girl mate so I think it will be better because she rather have it simple

I cant believe its taken me this long to jump on recharging batteries, now when I look at batteries in tesco that are on £5 for 4, what a ripp of

the government should make this a law to get rid of non rechargable batteries, like they did with charging 5p for bags that caused pollution
The charging problem is easy to resolve. I simply insert a charged battery in a slot, then quickly swap it with a battery that is completely discharged. Works every time for me!

So this Panasonic charger will charge a depleted cell?

so you have the model from 7dayshop?
thanks for the tip, If it was for me I would probably go with the more advance charger but seeing its for a friend I think she would perfer the simplest solution
The charger or the cells ? 2hr charges are going to wreck the cells and affect charge levels.

"AA" can come in various types for example Lithium Iron, Lithium Polymer & Nickel-metal hydride which means the charging process is completely different for each of these.

1. Lithium Ion require charging at slow rates
2. Lithium Polymer don't develop memory or voltage depression therefore can be charged in as little as 1 hour
3. NiMH are best charged at a higher rate as the deltaV detection may not be correctly with a slow rate charge, but keeping the battery below 35 degrees

The batteries in this deal are NiMH, which should be rapid charged rather than slow charged. Because of poor overcharge absorption, the trickle charge must be lower than that of nickel-cadmium and is usually around 0.05C. This explains why the older nickel-cadmium chargers can't be used with Nickel-metal hydride.

You can slow charge them, but if you don't remove them as soon as they reach capacity this can also damage the battery.

The manufacturer part number listed as K-KJ16MCC40E is an EU plug. Good luck with that falling out of your wall once you put an adaptor on it.

in the description it says "This version is equipped with a UK 3 pin plug"
im guessing the manufacturer number listed is a slight mistake, hopefully it is, either way I will send it back if its as you say, would be gutted though, the only other one I can find is in maplin for £10 more
Any other battery chargers out there to reccomend?? I'm on the lookout too.

If I wasn't buying for my friend and I had quidco (Assuming if the deal is still on) I would get this instead (I'm the OP)
hotukdeals.com/dea…323

for batteries everyone is raving about eneloop
amazon.co.uk/Pan…oop

also from that webpage a reviewer said this
**A few chargers worth looking at**

Maha MH-C9000 (very advanced high end charger)
Powerex MH-C9000
Technoline BL-700 or BC1000
Foxnovo F-4S
The official Panasonic charger is: BQ CC16 this is an intelligent charger with individual monitoring and charging of cells, I don't recommend the basic BQ CC18 it works fine but it is timer control only.
A decent budget 8 cell intelligent charger is the KooPower 8 Bay smart charger (this seems to be available in a few brand names same design though)

Some of the top end chargers have multiple charging speeds and testing capabilities as well as discharge/re-fresh cycles. If you don't need these features then just go for a normal smart charger it's worth the small additional cost.
and check out amaz

Nice one. I'll have a look
I got the order, just as the seller described
It had a 3 pin plug, the exact same model as this

very compact and all in all I'm very pleased
So the Panasonic brand is the one I need? Also which charger? I've got old Panasonic Rechargeable batteries not eneloop, would the new charger charge both old and new batteries?

sorry for late reply
as for your question, this is what my research pointed towards.
Eneloop are the best batteries, amazon basics are eneloops but rebranded and like half the price
I got the charger that I linked to in this thread and these amazon basic batteries
https://www.amazon.co.uk/AmazonBasics-Capacity-Pre-Charged-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B00HZV9WTM/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1475184513&sr=1-1&keywords=amazon+basics+batteries

I have not tested them and they were a gift to a girl mate.

I recommend you get the amazon basics for batteries and yes this charger is the best but only if you want a simple charger really. Since I wanted to get her a simple charger, plug and play I got her this.

But if I was going to buy for me I would get something like this
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Liitokala-Lii-500-NiMH-Battery-Charger-3-7V-18650-18350-18500-17500-10440-26650-1-2V/32658999890.html?spm=2114.01010208.3.37.ZHCIxN&ws_ab_test=searchweb201556_10,searchweb201602_5_10057_10056_10065_10068_10055_10054_10069_10059_10058_418_10073_10017_10071_10070_10060_10061_10052_10062_10053_10050_10051,searchweb201603_6&btsid=25803f59-95ef-45a0-b17b-df1f62103173

thats if your comfortable with shopping in China. The one in china one is 10 times better than the panasonic and cheaper, it does so much more but can still do the basics. also it takes any battery shapes and stuff.
check the reviews, alot alot cheaer to.

You could ask the seller if he can supply a uk adapter, if not they cost a pound from poundland. expect to wait between 2 weeks to 4.
seems like a good seller so I would expect 2-3 weeks.
The panasonic one is no where near that as a charger and I cant find any good price for it right now. let me know what you go for
