    it also raised a interesting point. The charger is very important and it could give as high as 2x the charge compared to other useless ones.

    I'm using the panasonic charger with auto-shutdown when completed. Might be that it have thought the sanyo batteries has already charged up which it might be only 1/2 charge.

    Any recommendation on what type of charger is good? The doc only recommend Maha Charger... can't find that brand here leh.

    I have the Maha Charger... you'll have to order from http://thomas-distributing.com
    I have used a few chargers before.... this is good... every battery review I see recommends this.

    If anybody wants to order this, then voice out... we can order together to share the shipping costs... I want to order some other things from the site as well.

    there are so many chargers at Mustafa .. the most easy way to identify that charger is the price ... $18 ..

    ask for a charger that cost $18 and see the charging current is 800 mAh . If you read the box manual carefully , it may confuse you how to use it becoz it has 2 usuage :
    - Power Adapter
    - Charger

    1 thing I like this charger is that it can charge AAA batt ...

    Yah, Rick, follow Megaweb's method more efficient. But, if you need the model no. here it goes:
    "$18 one is MW4798. $28 one is MW5798 (can charge 9V battery also). Both are intelligent chargers and charge 2 batteries at one time.

    There's a $38 MW4798N at www.purplemoo.com previously that can charge 4 batteries at one time." Copy from Mpenza and now asking for permission, hehe. KC, OK right!

    For picture, you have to do a search, I think someone post the pix B4 sometimes ago.

    Hi Willy

    Appreciate your advice here
    wondering what model of the MAHA changer you are using... I am quite interested in getting one as well as some battery holders.

    futhermore is there any accessories like cables or adapters that I would need to purchase along with the charger due to voltage discrepancies?
    Thnx in advance

    Can't remember the actual costs cos I bought a few more things as well and it's been some time..

    But the shipping charges are about S$50... then u add on the US Price for the charger lor... It takes just under 1-2 weeks to deliver.

    $50!!! wow... that would be quite close to the price of the charger... think it might be a better idea to do a mass order and share out the cost rather than do individual ordering... anyone for this idea?

    The Total Cost for the Charger is around $230.. that includes the shipping chargers, the maha charger, car adapter, AC adapter, and a solar charger.. Delivery is around 1 week.


    The Solar Charger

    The Raynox 1-hour charger selling in NUS Co-Op might be a better deal then for most people. It's supposed to be one of the better chargers too.
