Will Duracell charger work? I have the Duracell battery charger made for Duracell Ni-MH rechargeable batteries. Can this charger be used for Sanyo Eneloops? I'd love to be able to buy only the Eneloop batteries and not have to buy an Eneloop charger.
The Sanyo eneloop cells can be recharged using any good-quality 'smart' chargers designed for NiMH cells. For the sake of battery lifespan, avoid timer-based overnight 'dumb' chargers, and '15-minute' ultra-fast battery roasters.
As a general rule, any brand of NiMH cells can be recharged using other brands of NiMH chargers. But the manufacturer always tell you to use only the same brand - for obvious reasons.
