Takes a long time to charge anything, and thus far the batteries I have charged do not seem to be lasting very long.
SDJ73
This charger charges each battery independently, so even if I need a single battery charged, I can do it without pairing it with a 2nd battery.
D. Bailey
The alkaline rechargeable batteries are good in remotes, wireless mice and keyboards, clocks and anywhere the charge drain is low.

This product (iGogreen Green Energy Battery Charger Rechargeable Alkaline Batteries) contains an 'iGo green' 4-slot AA/AAA charger, plus four 'iGo' rechargeable alkaline AA batteries.

There are several aspects I like about the iGo charger:
1. It is capable of charging both NiMH and RAM (rechargeable alkaline manganese) batteries. Most chargers are designed for NiMH only and cannot handle RAM batteries.
2. It is 'smart' in that it monitors the voltage of battery in each slot, and stops charging when the battery voltage is high enough (approximately 1.4V for NiMH, 1.6V for RAM)
3. It has individual indicator light for each slot. The green light blinks while charging, and stays on when done.
4. It has a slim one-piece design with a folding AC plug
5. It work from universal voltage of 100-240V AC

The only problem with this charger is that it is very slow. The user manual says charging current is 200mA for NiMH, 150mA for alkaline. But the actual charging current I measured drops as battery voltage gets higher, to around 170mA for NiMH, 130mA for alkaline. That means:
- To recharge NiMH cells with 2000mAh capacity (such as the Sanyo eneloop AA), it will take about 12 hours.
- To recharge alkaline cells with 2000mAh capacity (such as the

This is one of the few compact inexpensive chargers that has independent circuits.
I just bought a pair yesterday for this reason.
This is very important as it ensures each cell is fully charged.

It is small and doesn't require an AC adapter - great for travel.

It is not a fast charger, however.

The batteries are listed as alkaline 2000 mAh.
I charged them fully in this charger.

Then I discharged them in my MAHA C9000 charger. It measured capacity of 939 to 1145 mAh. Not really close to what was advertised. However, at $13 list price, and less retail, this is still a good value just for the charger, even if you never use those batteries.

Although this is a "slow" charger, it charges up both rechargeable alkalines and NiMh batteries very well. Unlike some chargers that can only charge pairs of batteries (either 2 or 4) this charger has an independent charging channel for each battery. It also has indicator lights that tell you when each battery is fully charged. The spring loaded posts make it very easy to insert and remove batteries from charger while maintaining good electrical contact. One note regarding rechargeable alkalines; this type of battery chemistry does NOT like being fully discharged. Doing so will reduce their maximum voltage on their next full charge, and will reduce the life cycle of the battery. To make rechargeable alkalines last, they should be charged at or before being 50% drained.

I bought this thing on Woot (with shipping, it cost me more than what Amazon is asking), and I don't regret it. It's true that the provided white alkaline batteries don't survive many recharge cycles, but they have a very low self-discharge rate, so they're perfect in devices that drain batteries slowly, like remotes and various alarms.

Though the instructions advise against this, I've experimented with using the charger to recharge my dead alkaline Duracells that have been sitting in my battery disposal box. A few months ago I put them in a seldom-used wireless keyboard, and it still works! I haven't had any batteries leak, and though I'm sure that they won't survive many recharge cycles, this makes me feel very green. Even if I don't top up those old alkalines to 100%, that's plenty good enough for that clock, remote, egg timer or seldom-used pen flashlight.

Because recharging unrechargeable batteries can go horribly wrong, make sure you place the charger over something that won't be damaged by a leak of nasty chemicals. Maybe plug it into an extension cord and place it in a glass bowl. I can tell you that this has completely changed my perspective on batteries, now that I see every one of them as a rechargeable. I used to avoid getting battery powered devices, because I always thought I'd have to get another set of expensive rechargeables to use it effectively. Now, I'm feeling very battery-rich!

I got some of these batteries from a Woot deal in January of 2012. It is now November of 2013, and I just threw them all in the trash...which I guess is an advantage for these supposedly "green" batteries. I had one of the batteries leak when recharging a month or so ago and threw it out. Yesterday I had some more that needed charging (they have mostly been used in Wii Remotes), so I put in 6 to charge overnight. This morning, I found at least half of them leaking somewhat after charging. Four that had been in a Wii balance board and almost never used were trying to leak as well. Half of them had some crud on the negative terminal, so I tossed them all. Just not worth the risk of damage.

They seemed to work OK initially. As some noted, they take a long time to charge, which isn't a big deal if you have extras on hand. Charge-wise, they were OK but not great. Again, not a big deal as there were always extras waiting to swap out while the others charged. But...I expected more than 1.5-2 years of service life, especially considering the few charge cycles that actually involved.

I saw them on Woot again recently, and someone commented that they held up better if you recharged them before they got down to being dead or nearly dead. Perhaps that would have helped, but that just isn't a great way to have to handle rechargeable batteries in the real world for most folks...

I have picked up some Eneloop NiMH batteries and just started using them...I've heard lots of good things, so hopefully they will hold up better than these did!
