    Not sure about the Nexcell, but you can consider the Maha C401FS. It fits all of your criterion. Though for "discharging", it uses some technology during the charging process to minimise the memory effect. And it has the option of fast/slow charging. And as it is microprocessor controlled, it can charge even up to the latest 2500mAh and beyond. $49.95 from Eastgear, including a car adaptor kit

    I am also looking for a charger but it must be light for travel purposes and it must have discharge function as well as being a quick charger for charging 4 AA batteries in < 1 hr. Most so called quick chargers take about 3 ~ 4 hours to charge 4 batteries, if you read the fine prints.

    So any recommendations???

    I should take about 2hours+ for a 2300mAh battery at fast charge for the Maha charger.
    Charger can charge 1-4 AA/AAA batteries at any time.

    How heavy is the Maha charger (charger + transformer but without batteries)?? For overseas travel, weight is a concern for me...
