Not good quality, batteries didn't charge with the included charger or with a smart charger I have.

I love this charger, it works REALLY fast and is excellent for my applications (360 controllers, MFLB, flashlights, a/v remotes) It works just like advertised.

Why a 3 start rating then? Well... I have ran into a couple issues... it doesn't make me want to look for a replacement, but just a word of caution to others.

The two AA batteries that came with it were dead, not like... Oh, they are out of a charge... I mean 100% not working, would not take a charge from this or any of the other chargers I have.

Something else to keep in mind... this charger is loud when it's charging, this is due to an internal cooling fan that helps keep the temps down and the components from melting. The second and most alarming issue is that I've had the charger for a little over a month now and already the bearings on the internal fan are going out. When I plug in a battery and the fan starts up, you can hear a bad bearing whizzing around for about 20 seconds before the noise goes away.

Bottom line, would I purchase this charger again? Without hesitation because of how well it functions. I would just caution others to be prepared to purchase a replacement sooner rather than later. It's currently $8 shipped with prime... you can hardly get 2 quality AA NIMH batteries for that price.

Bought my first Enercell 15 minute charger at radio shack about 2 years ago. Works perfectly every time with all AA and AAA batteries. A drawback is 2 batteries at a time, but current chargers advertise 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours to charge. obviously not acceptable. My neighbor wanted to recharge AA's. I went to Sams and Walmart and no speedy recharges. Radio Shack wanted 35.00 plus for a charger. Found one like my 15 minute Enercell charger on Amazon, and ordered it . About $20.00 including shipping. a good bargain.

I have the 4 bay version of this battery charger and it's the scariest charger I've had by a long way.

It doesn't appear to switch/sense reliably and the batteries can get hot - very hot - hot enough to hurt it touched. Mine barely detects batteries properly now and often flashes a red light and does nothing. Eventually it starts to charge if you insert/remove enough times and then the fun starts. It certainly charges fast - but without 100% reliability in stopping when the battery is full the heat build up is scary - I am quite certain it would start a fire if left unattended, or at the very least blow up a battery.

It disgusts me that stores are allowed to sell this sort of thing they way they do (Radioshack in this case, not Amazon, just feel people need to know the risks of this family of charger).

I plug this directly into our 12v solar charged battery and it works great. Each charging station has its own light that turns on when it's battery is charged. This is great for when one battery needs more charge then the other. It also has a built in tester that tells you when the batteries are no good. I like the fan. It runs when charging and turns off when its done. That little round clear plastic button at the bottom is a small night light. Oh, you can plug this into 120v wall plug to charge your batteries, too.
