      I bought mine from Jaycar.

      Can’t remember what kind of charger it was, but it did 10 AA or AAA at 1 go, either NiCads or NiMH

      It was relatively cheap, but takes a while to charge though. (Doesn’t matter too much because I have enough AAAs)

      Aesch 🙂

      Do you have a Jaycar store near you?

      The Jaycar charger is pretty cheap ($30 I think) and does a nice job 😉

      You can get up to 850mAh in NiMH AAA these days.

      To quickcharge NiMH it is best to buy a proprietary peak-detect charger made for NiMH AAAs. Anything under 3 hrs is risky using a “universal” charger. There are some very nice ones sold by GP available overseas but I don’t know if anybody sells them here.

      lol…you guys wait a whole HOUR for your batteries to charge??? Man my charger takes 20 mins and i still hate waiting.
      I charge at about 2.4 A and put the batteries in a gel ice pack to keep them from self destructing.
