4.0 out of 5 stars This pricey charger is worth EVERY penny!, August 10, 2009
WHY WE BOUGHT IT: My wife and I were hesitant to pay what we thought was big $$ for just another 'battery charger.' However we were really getting tired of short battery life (even with AccuEvolution LSD NiMH AA cells) using our existing Wal-Mart charger that sold for only $19 w/4 standard NiMH AA cells! For $19 we got a junk charger that rendered our AccuEvolution AA's nearly useless. SO..we bit the bullet and ordered this unit.

HOW IT WORKS FOR US: We could not be happier after using it the past 4 days. It has made all the difference in the life of our 8 LSD NiMH cells and has thoroughly reconditioned our 8 standard NiMH cells (6 Energizer brand and 2 Kodak brand) back into 100% servicable condition. It is not unusual for us to take 500 snaps a day. Between day-trips, weekend jaunts and being owned by 10 kitty kats there is always something worthy of a snapshot. Now we can leave the house with 16 FULLY CHARGED cells and with our cigarette lighter DC to AC convertor even charge cells as we roll down the road. If you are a heavy battery user -OR- don't want to shorten and/or ruin the life of your costly LSD NiMH cells this Maha charger is a great value and will very much enhance your battery experience. This charger has made a HUGE positive (++++) impact on our photography hobby. Comes with nice carrying pouch that has an extra pocket for AA/AAA cells and 3 8-pack AA plastic cell storage cases.

WHAT WE DON'T LIKE:
Only 1 thing really - the built-in LCD display is small and not illuminated at all. We use a flashlight to be able to read the display. I suppose if under a desk lamp it would be OK as well. Our charging station area is not normally brightly lit. To be fair the display text is large enough (but certainly not jumbo) but it is the lack of illumination that kept us from giving this unit a full 5 stars. IMHO there is no reason a unit that draws AC power should not have a bright contrast / easy reading display. We would pay extra for this feature alone.

OUR CONCLUSION: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

-ps Just relocated the charger to under a desk lamp.. The display is A-OK and easy to read from 18" away.
