This review is from: Apple Battery Charger (Personal Computers)
Non-Apple battery chargers will cost you less. But none of them are as compact as the Apple one. Besides, who can resist a $29 Apple gizmo? Read on for more details on why I replaced my battery charger with the Apple one.
I already had a bunch of rechargeable batteries which I charged using the loud clunky Duracell charger that came with the Duracell kit. The Duracell charger makes a loud fan noise while charging and the power brick is as large as the charger. My plan was to charge a bunch of batteries and have them ready to go. But for some reason unless the batteries have just been charged they always show about a 60% charge after they sit around. The way my Apple Magic Mouse goes through batteries I needed some rechargeable batteries ready to go but I didn't want the Duracell clunker sitting around my desk. So now I have a nice looking little Apple battery charger. Yeah.

Hey man thanks for this video review. I wasn't quite sure what size the Apple Charger was, and when you compared it to the Sanyo NEW 1500 eneloop 8 Pack AA Ni-MH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries I was pleased to see how much smaller the charger was.
I'm very pleased with my eneloop, but I like the size of this charger, I'm pleased they are using re-branded eneloops (I think the batteries perform great) and I'll get 6 batteries as well. Plus, I can toss the eneloop charger and just use Mr. Apple charger.
Thanks for the time you spent taping and posting the review. I appreciate it.
