Thread: Good Re-chargerable Batt for Pentax k-x

    There are mortal chargers and there are MAHA chargers.

    I have this MAHA MH-C9000
    This is the white wizard of chargers...
    it revitalizes the weak
    it cures the sick
    it rises the dead

    I have this MAHA MH-C800S
    As good as the above just that it dun rise the dead. But it charges 8 at 1 go

    Er... forget the 15min 30min charges... it will kill your batteries. They get really really hot.

    the travel charger (i think it is one hour) has a refresh/rejuvenate function, and will not dig a hole into your pocket.
    I'm using the free kit eneloop and imedions.
    seems imedions depletes faster then eneloop altho they are 100MA higher then eneloop and hit "orange" light faster in Kx.

    My fully charged eneloop lasted me around 550shots (no flashes or liveview used), not sure if this is normal, as opposed to the claim of 1900 shots? I guess auto-focus and some build-in PP used more energy?

    If you look at the instruction manual 550 is withing the range so should be normal for NiMH.
    The 1900 shot is for the Lithium (non rechargeable batteries).
    I have been able to see such performance for both NiMH and Lithium with good batteries and charger.

    Great value for money when compared to the Sanyo Quick Charger offered as a promotional deal by Pentax (Emjay), Singapore.

    I can swear by this model personally... been using it for quite some time now... and actually went out and bought another one so that I could charge 8 batteries at one go simultaneously!

    This is in spite of my having had quite a collection of other good branded chargers (some slow ones, some timer based and other not-as-smart ones!)... all of these are now in hibernation in some forgotten box somewhere in my house!

    I won't even suggest the Maha MH-C9000 WizardOne Charger... an absolute overkill... but a device that I also swear by occasionally when it comes to analyzing and re-conditioning batteries!

    What's more... if I remember correctly, these Maha chargers come with a three year local Singapore warranty offered directly by EastGear, Singapore.
    smells like home TV shopping...
    I dunno!!!
    It's banana-zero-neh. :)

    those generic brands tend to overrate their specs. I have a fuji compatible battery with rating almost twice the original battery but in the end, last just as long only.

    1900 shots sounded more like the Lithiums instead. My eneloops were able to get me around 1000 shots before the camera cannot power up.

    yes, highest end shots for aa battery using cameras would usually come from lithium batteries.
