        I own several of these and cannot say I have used any better. I have dozens of PowerEx batteries and this helps keep them all in use. Excellent product.

            Display is hard to read and the directions are a bit ambiguous about when the charging is supposed to be complete. But other wise it works well. I have been using the slow charge because some reviewers commented on the over heating problem. I also bought the batteries and have been using them in a battery pack. So far, so good.

                I use a lot of batteries; and they get expensive quickly. This battery charger is not cheap; but it is the cadillac of chargers and always performs in an excellent manner. I've used it with several different battery brands and have never had any problems.I own these for my personal use but purchased this latest one for batteries used in a classroom setting. My budget took a hit with the initial outlay but will very soon more than break even with this charger and great batteries.

                  Works as it should, wish it had slightly better build quality, but that most likely does not effect charging performance in any way. Handles all the versions of eneloop batteries I have without issue.

                            I always run my AA batteries in the same sets of 4, so whether it be camera or flash they all remain together as a set. I was therefore surprised at how different the batteries in a set were after getting this charger - obviously they do not discharge at the same rate in the device - not even close. I would have never thought they would be so different until getting this device. Very impressive. Only issue is the display is small and unlit, thus it can be tough to read the display at times (old eyes may have something to do with it).

                              I like this charger, my first burn out because too much use. It works well for 5 years.
                              I don't know other good as this one. The condition/recycle mode is great.

                              dislike: At fast charge, it was very hot and burn the plastic.

                              We use a lot of AA and AAA batteries for photography and found that they didn't have a very long battery life after recharging on another charger. After researching this product and the discharging and recharging process we decided to give it a try. It works great! Getting at least 50% longer life after charging than before with the same batteries. The deep conditioning saved batteries we were ready to throw out.

                              The ability to independently charge the batteries and see how much charge each has is great too.

                              The only downside is how hot it gets during charging. It's a little bit concerning but no damage has been done because of it.

                                Used so far to recondition some older NiMH batteries. It's half paid for itself by making these batteries useful and dependable again. Good for my pocketbook and good for the environment.

                                Charges every battery seperately. I recommend charging them on soft charge so that your batteries lifetime is longer. Recycling feature is incredibly awesome. Recycle your batteries 2 or 3 times a year for extended lifetime and reliabily so that batteries stay consistent. The charger itself is not big or bulky at all. Im constantly using this charger to charge my 32 eneloops. Future proof yourself with this charger. You wont regret it. I did all the research and hands-on for you already. You're welcome.

                                  I like the face that this charger has a soft charge and rejuvinate selections, as well as the regular fast charge. I have used the rejuvinate cycle on some older NiMH battries and it really kicked them up.

                                            Tengo un cargador para 4 pilas y era mucho tiempo el que invertía cargando todas mis pilas cada vez que tenía una sesión. Este cargador vino a simplificar los tiempos de carga! Leí en reviews que lo consideran "pesado" pero en realidad es ligero estando solo, es obvio que tiene que pesar mas al tener 8 pilas AA, así que no lo considero algo fuera de lo normal.

                                            Al poner las pilas comienza en automático con la carga rápida (1 a 2 hrs) pero a mi me agrada mas cargar las pilas en la modalidad "Soft", así que tengo que estar lista para oprimir el botón que activa esa opción 5 segundos después de colocar la primer pila, pues de otro modo no te permite usar esa función.

                                            También probé la opción de "Reacondicionado" de las pilas y me agradó mucho, le devolvió la vida a unas pilas que ya daba por perdidas.

                                            Excelente producto, compraría otro igual!

                                            This should have been one of my first purchases with a flash. Don't waste your time with other batteries or those that can't be recharged! This charger is the best - especially with options to recondition.

                                              This is definitely the best charger I've ever owned. I plan to eventually by two more. Each battery is charged individually. You can get a full charge in 1-2 hours if you need them soon or slow charge if you have time and want to extend the battery life. One of the smartest purchases one can make.

                                                Charges each battery independently in 1-2 hours or more slowly for longer battery life. Other less expensive chargers may charge two batteries together. When one of the batteries becomes fully charged they tun off, often leaving the remaining battery incompletely charged. In the past I mistakenly thought the batteries were faulty. After using four AA's in an SB900 it is interesting to see that the individual batteries charge at different rates using this charger. After complete charging they were checked with a battery meter and all four were fully charged.

                                                  Comments about Powerex MH-C800S 8-Cell Smart Charger for AA / AAA NiMH / NiCD Batteries:

                                                  I purchased this model because we use this same charger at work and I was familiar with it.

                                                  I like that you don't have to charge batteries in pairs. Also, it worked well in bringing back a few of my older batteries from the dead with its conditioning mode.

                                                  • Was this a gift?:
