      I use the charger regularly for lots of AA batteries. It averages about 30 minutes to charge 4 batteries. It has a small fan (like a CPU fan) that cools it and the batteries. The batteries are not what I would call hot during/after charging. The fan does make some noise, but it's worth it for the savings of time.

      The batteries that come with it are "slightly" larger than regular batteries, but I haven't had a problem with them not fitting into my equipment. The batteries power my equipment longer than other NiMH's I've owned.

      It has a wall wart power supply.

      I have some NiMH batteries that have been around a long time. This charger has rejected a few of them (the red light flashes instead of turning green). By accident, I discovered that they will charge if put in the charger with a "good" battery. I did throw some of the "bad" ones away before I discovered this. And maybe it's just a fluke that this happened?

      I have had this package for over a year. I've got no complaints about the charger at all. However, I find these batteries self discharge far too soon and they lack staying power while in use in my Nikon's external battery pack. Not horrible, but the performance is not close to the admittedly different chemistry of my Nikon-brand battery in the body. The AAs are convenient but if you need sustained high power for your location shoots consider more of the more expensive Lithium batteries for your body instead.

      Comments about Pearstone NM-30H26 4 AA NiMH Batteries with 30 Minute Charger (2600mAh,110-240V):

      I am a photojournalist and needed rechargeable batteries and charger for my flash set up and audio gear (Tascam Dr-100 Mk II).

      This does the job - it gets 4 stars, not 5 because it is quite loud when it charges! But I cannot really complain as it is great value for money and charges in 30 mins or less.

        Charges each battery individually which is nice, you know each one is getting 100% I charged a bunch in it and none of them took the entire 30 minutes, which is amazing. It does have a fan to cool off the batteries (which do get hot) and the fan is not too quiet but all in all its a great charger.

          Using these batteries for photo flash power has made my life much easier. The charger is often done in less than the 30 minutes specified AND the batteries have plenty of power to run even my brightest lighting. Hats off to pearstone for providing this low cost solution.

                    I originally bought the 4 hour charger from the same manufacturer. I ran across this kit while looking for extra batteries. The fast charge time intrigued me initially, but the extra ability to charge from a vehicle sealed the deal.

                    I primarily use this for charging speedlite batteries, but plan on using the batteries in other devices as I replace aging nicads.

                    I only gave it 4 stars so far because I haven't used it long enough to determine longevity, but so far it works great.

                    I'll give B&H 5 stars for shipping and handling everything I've ordered from them in an exemplary manner.

                          I would buy this product again because as usual, it works like B&H SAID it would.

                            I got this charger, because my old one was taking way too long. Usually it took 4 hours to charge a set of 4 batteries. The 30 minute charger takes at least 30 minutes, but no more than 45. This is a huge time saver in getting ready to do wedding photography or any portrait session. It also comes with a car charger. The batteries that come with it stay charged for a few hours, before having to replace them ( at weddings, that is). I am very satisfied with this product and will buy again if needed.

                              I use rechargable AA batteries for the flash on my Olympus E-30. I bought this as a replacement for another name brand charger. The other brand's batteries took about 9 seconds between flashes. The Pearlstone batteries took about 1 second. The charge lasted longer and gave me more power for continuous shooting.

                              You have fully charged AA batteries in just 30 minutes. The only downside is that it doesn't plug directly in the wall, but that's not the greatest issue. There's a fan to cool off the batteries while they're charging, and that makes a little noise, but it pays off for what you save: time.

                              Fast charger which is great.Very high mAh 2600 very nice.I did not like that the adaptor of the charger is bulky and comparably heavy. It is yet to early to decide if the product is worth it.. Batteries need time to see if they are going to last and that the charge is as good as first time.. I will try to update later

                                  My DAT recorder and GPS unit go through batteries like the wind. Being a skeptic about 3rd party batteries but also tired of paying a lot of money on the name brands, I decided to try these. I'm very happy that I did. They charge unbelievably fast and perform beautifully.
