      The batteries work, and take a charge when plugged into the charger for the time recommended. However, the charger itself has 2 non-working LEDs that are supposed to indicate charging status: flashing LEDs for charging and steady green for fully charged. The original unit sent by B+H had this problem as did the replacement unit they promptly sent fully postage paid. B+H has no fault in this - they rapidly responded to my call about the issue. This appears to be a manufacturing defect affecting more than just one charger.

          Included batteries needed charging. The charger charged them quickly and fully. Fitting AAA batteries into the charger was slightly more difficult than fitting AA's.
          Use it to ensure the batteries for my Sekonic LITEMASTER PRO L-478DR Light Meter are always charged.

                  I bought this set of batteries and recharger to power a set of radio triggers and some flashes.

                  It charged up quickly (relative to other inexpensive chargers, and then I put in some different brand AAs I already had for my flashes. The Ansmann AAs charged up easily as well and lasted as long as I usually expect them to (which is a long time).

                  The Watson AAAs did not last as long, but I also used them in a new device so I had no refernce to compare them to. They did last about as long as the radio triggers said to expect in their directions.

                        This item does not have a 'discharge button' or indicators that show the level of discharge as described in the instructions.

                        I would also like to know what it means when the red light blinks on and off. Does it mean my old batteries are no longer good?

                              I PARTICULARLY LIKE THE DESIGN WHERE YOU CAN CHARGE AAA OR AA WITH THE SAME CHARGER. IT IS ALSO AN ECOLOGICALLY SOUND IDEA TO BE ABLE TO RECHARGE YOUR BATTERIES INSTEAD OF DISCARDING THEM.

                                  Having just purchased a cute Coby mp3 player/flash drive combo from B&H that takes a AAA battery with the intent of using it on the long flight to Australia in a few weeks, I figured it was time to start using rechargeable batteries. I love that the charger will also charge AA batteries since I am the queen of small flashlights! Charger works like a charm.

                                        They work well, there is a faint order during
                                        recharging and I would not leave it unattended
                                        as the item does get very warm.

                                          like all the Pearstones. Last longer and charge faster.

                                              Don't have to spend a lot of money on top brand batteries that you have to throw out after they die. These are perfect.

                                                            Received more than expected. I bought it to charge 4 AAA batteries and found that the charger can also charge 4 AA also. Works as stated in description and charges in less than 4 hours. Currently the batteries maintain a long life charge.
