    A: After charging, you may leave NiMH batteries in the 1-Hour Charger until you are ready to use them. A "trickle charge" maintenance current will keep the batteries topped off - completely charged and ready to use.

    i strongly recommend this charger at 49.90, what are you guys waiting for?? i got mine at 79.90!!!

    sony one hour what?!! alamak.... don't waste your time.....

    anyway, my experience is that if you fully drain a 1600mah rayovac batteries with a tap light....(low batt indicated by camera is low power for camera but still lots of juice left for tap light!!) it will take about 1 hr & 7 mins to recharge...... i m not complaining.....
    That's good to hear. Thanks for the pointer! I wonder how come it's not mentioned in the manual.

    This is highly recommended at $49.90. Forget the Sony.

    Only if I haven bought the MW Compact Intelligent...still, no complaint for the CI charger at just S$28 during promotion. Took about 3 hours to fully charge a set of 1700mAh batteries. If charge 4 batteries, need 6 hours. It charges one set first (the other set on waiting mode). Current price is S$40, and I will go for Royovac for sure at this price.

    Finally bought this when Carrefour is selling it at $49.90 (as opposed to the originally pricey $79.90). Also bought 2 Rayovac 1600mAh NiMH batteries to make a set of 4 (with the 2 free ones).
    so is Carrefour still selling it at this price ? so how much did you spend in all getting the charger and the 4 batteries ?

    Is this the charger?


    This one also seems quite impressive for US$24.95 (110-240v)

    My charger does have discharge and trickle functions.

    The point is that NiMH batteries does not need discharge .

    Rayovac using local voltage adapter but US's voltage is different from us. Theirs is 120V. So don't think you can.

    The charger comes as a charger unit + AC/DC adaptor. Not a self-contained unit tho.

    ckiang,

    How much is the Rayovac 1600mAh NiMH batteries? Do they have 1800mAh ones? If so can they be charged in the charger you mentioned?

    As far as I know, Rayovac only has 1600mAh batteries. They costs $9.90 per pair, or $17.90 for 4, so it's not too expensive. This is an intelligent charger, so it will handle 1800mAh and above without problems, just that it might take slightly over an hour to fully charge them.

    The Rayovac 1600mAH NiMH batteries are $9 for 2, $17 for 4 at W Cube. Not sure about other place selling it.

    Don't think there's Rayovac 1800mAH batteries.

    is it usable with the $40 round disc-like multi adaptor sold in most DIY stores ? if cannot use then quite difficult to bring overseas leh.
