    Good charger, lightweight and easy to store as you can fold the prongs out of sight; but there is a better charger from the same company. This is the MQN06, if you can find the MQN05 model which is very rare (usually just comes with an Eneloop power pack kit package), that is the model to get.

    The MQNO5 charges each battery individually.
    The MQNO6 charges in pairs. That means you cannot charge 1 or 3 batteries only. If you put 3 batteries, it will only charge 2 of them. If you put 1 battery, it will not start the charging process at all.

    How can you identify the MQN05 from the MQNO6?
    The MQNO6 has 2 LED lights at the bottom.
    The MQNO5 has 1 LED light at the bottom.

    I'm a big fan of Sanyo eneloop rechargeable NiMH cells. Over the past 3.5 years, I have accumulated several dozens of eneloop AA and AAA cells, together with three of those Sanyo Eneloop Battery Charger (MC-MQN06U) in the process. But that's only because Sanyo prefer to bundle this mediocre charger with various eneloop packages.

    Here's what I don't like about this MQN06 charger:

    - It charges in pairs only. This is very inconvenient for appliances that take odd number of cells. If you try to charge an exhausted cell together with a half-full cell, the charging process stops as soon as the second cell is full, which means the first cell is still half-empty.

    - The charging current is very low: 300mA for AA cells, 150mA for AAA cells. That means it take about 7 hours to recharge a pair of exhausted eneloop AA cells.

    - If you leave a pair of charged cells in an unplugged MQN06, there is a leakage current of 0.5mA. This means a loss of 12mAh per day. In other words, a set of 2000mAh cells will become exhausted in about 5 months. That wipes out the 'low-self-discharge' benefit of eneloop cells.

    In contrast, the Sanyo MDR02 2-cell rapid charger monitors each cell individually. It charges at a higher current (550mA for AA, 380mA for AAA), and it only leaks about 0.03mA of current when unplugged. Sanyo also makes a better 4-cell rapid charger called MQR06 ('R' for rapid). Too bad it is not available in the US yet.

    I've had this Sanyo Ni-MH battery charger for one year. For AA and AAA batteries it's so easy to keep handy and plug into a wall socket. The plug-in prongs flip down for use. It does not need to rest on a counter as do the larger chargers. It takes over-night for a recharge. A small light flashes for each pair of batteries while charging and becomes steady when complete. No problems at all yet.

    I have about 3 of these chargers - in addition to being sold separately, they also come in bundles with AA's or AAA's for not much more (look into these bundles if you're also in the market for rechargeables - you might save a few bucks on a combo!)

    The design itself is nice - it's your typical "AA Charger" but with a nice white finish that matches your Eneloops. Nothing too special here, but it looks somewhat classy compared to the uglier ones out there. The back has a flip-down outlet, the front has grooves to hold either AA or AAA Batteries. No cover-piece is included (no big loss as these tend to be more trouble than they're worth). It's a bit bulkier than my other AA/AAA chargers (both in height, width and depth) but nothing major.

    One disappointing thing I learned after buying the pack is that it charges only in pair - you can charge 2 or 4 at a time, but if you just need to charge 1 or 3, you're out of luck. The green LEDs (located on the bottom) flash while charging and then turn solid when complete. Charging isn't any faster or slower than a "regular" charger in my experience - it's not a quick charger, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Expect to wait about ~3-4 hours for batteries to charge from a not-completely-drained status.

    With all this said - there really isn't anything "special" about it in my experience - no big selling point to it (especially at its cost). If you just need a basic charger - it'll do the job. If you want more (for roughly the same price), I say look into the competition. I personally like the

    I have used re-chargeable batteries of all types for years. But not until Sanyo came up with the new Eneloops battery did I really appreciate re-chargeable batteries. Before Eneloop batteries my NiCad or HiMH batteries would not hold a charge for more than a few days or even weeks. So if I needed power now I would purchase Alkaline batteries because I knew my rechargeable would not do the job. And then one day I heard about the Sanyo Eneloop battery. Wow, what a difference.

    I am not going to bore you with stats but I can tell you one thing they are the best ever for holding a charge for months on end. Even after a year they are still at 80%. And if you buy the Eneloop batteries you will need the Sanyo Eneloop battery charger. It's like pie and Ice Cream, they just go together. This Sanyo charger is designed for the Eneloop battery and will give you years of service along with your new Eneloop batteries. If you have time and just like to research things go on the Web yourself. I found a blog where some fellow did an extensive review on this new battery concept. So don't just believe me look for yourself. I own many electronic devices and all of which now run on the new Sanyo Eneloop batteries and are charged by the Eneloop battery charger. Check them out for yourself.
