    Which Battery Charger

    I really can't decide which charger to get. I don't need batteries for really powerful things, it's just for kids toys and my Wii remotes.

    I want one that won't take too long to charge. Some chargers I've seen can take up to 10 hours!

    Any suggestions? Thanks

    I was looking at the Energizer's pro charger for £11.99 with batteries...

    Was a post on here earlier today for an entry-level fast intelligent charger for about £8 from 7DS = good value.
    Edit: found it. 1 - 1.5hr charge time £8.49 7dayshop.com/pro…504

    Has anyone tried one of the chargers that can recharge alkaline batteries? (The regular supposedly non-rechargeable batteries). I like the idea and woukd save £££ having to replace with new expensive rechargeable batteries. See e.g.

    I went for the energizer one

    The "charge ordinary batteries" ones can work fairly well, though some batteries are more amenable than others.

    Reputedly, "high drain" or "photo" alkalines tend not to take recharge in these systems, while I've had packs of Panasonic red/white ordinary that take charge after charge - capacity will drop with each cycle though - they tend to be good for only about 10 cycles.

    If you can find the rechargeable alkaline batteries, they will take more cycles, very good for things that don't like the lower voltage of NiCd/NiMH

    Thanks matth9999! That is really helpful.
