    I used to use Sonys n charged like 2 to 3 hrs only. Sanyo users assist if possible pls.

    Long charge for the first time only la.

    Also a normal charger will take around 6 hours to charge in normal condition. You can buy a fast charger to charge them at 1.5-2 hours.

    Depend how many batteries charging at one time and what type of charger i.e fast charger can charge 4 AA in about 2 hrs....normal charger around 4- 6 hrs. Although I'm not too sure whether the battery capacity play a part i.e 2700mAh > than 2300mAh charging time????

    Get a proper charger that can a) show the level of existing charge and charging progress; b) allows for slow charging (also named 'soft charging') and c) can do reformatting of batteries. You can use any charger that is specified for the largest battery (in terms of capacity [mAh]), no need to stick to the manufacturer of the batteries. Have a look at Maha MH-C801 or browse for other models
