    I've owned quite a few cheap chargers, got tired of incomplete charges, or the 15-minute-speed-demon that only charged the newest batteries and wouldn't recognize my older ones. So I was faced with buying a bunch of new batteries - and quickly burning them up on the speed-charger - or investing in a quality charger.

    So far I'm quite impressed. This charger has restored life in several batteries I was about to throw out. The ability to charge any combination of cells is a plus for all those devices that run on odd numbers of batteries. Independent charging means every battery gets a full charge, unlike cheaper units that charge in pairs. And having 8 slots means I can charge all 8 for my MB-D10 at once, or enough batteries to power two strobes.

    Cons? Sure, nothing is perfect. As other reviews elsewhere on-line have stated, the LCD screen is smallish and somewhat hard to read. A backlight would help, but I just keep a small flashlight nearby. It's not small by any means - the power brick is almost as large as the charger - it's about the size of a laptop brick. And setting the default to soft charge instead of rapid seems like a better default option.

    This is a great charger. I have used all the functions and they are fairly straightforward. The issues I have with mine are that the buttons aren't very responsive. You have a narrow time window to select soft charging or recondition mode and sometimes I don't get the timing right and have to pull the battery out and try again. It doesn't help that the LCD display is very dim and hard to read, at least for the tiny text at the top. The battery status is clear enough though.These annoyances aren't a deal breaker though, the charger works very well and I'm getting more time out of my batteries with it.

          Fast service by B&H as always. Charger itself has a simple interface, though the text is very tiny, but thats easily forgiven. This charger does have one of those bricks, that you might see on a laptop cord, so for traveling, it takes up a bit more room than I would like. but so far, so good!

                Comments about Powerex MH-C801D 8-Cell 1-Hour Charger for AA / AAA NiMH / NiCD Batteries:

                I have had one of these for about four years, and it makes a world of difference for me. I work as a pro wedding photographer, and shoot about 1200 photos per weekend, from may to the end of September. I charge the batteries I use with this very unit. The conditioning cycle will improve your older batteries performance and will make new ones last at least a couple years, under the circumstances I shoot in. I just bought a second one, the first one is still working just fine, but I want another one to charge more batteries at the same time.

                This is a very-well-worth-it purchase for anyone who demands a lot from their rechargeable batteries. From my experience, it does work best with the 2700mAh batteries they supply, which are some of the highest mAh batteries I have found.

                The slow-charge conditioning cycle does take 36 hours, but is worth the wait. And, there is a faster, 4 hour, or so, cycle that will do well also.

                  One of the major advantages of the Powerex is that you can charge 8 batteries at one time. While most chargers can charge only four, the Powerex can not only charge eight, it will provide you a status of the charge for each battery.

                  I primarily use the soft charging mode, slightly slower than the rapid charging mode. It preserves the battery life, though, so it is worth the extra hour.

                  The LCD screen displayes a separate indicator for each battery and will display "charged" when the battery is fully charged. The LCD is the primary reason that I would give this product four stars. For us old guys, it is difficult to read becuse the type is so small.

                      I recently installed several solar post lights on my backyard deck rail. As you would expect, their efficiency is highly dependent on plenty of sunshine days to charge the inboard AA batteries. I am using, with great success, the Powerex MH-C801D to augment the normal charging which occurs via the solar collectors. During periods of minimal sunlight, I remove and charge the AA batteries and return them to the post light before darkness. The original batteries (NiCD - 1000 Mah) were replaced with NiMH - 2700 Mah. The newer batteries, with their larger capacity, allow the lights to be more tolerant of longer periods of minimal sunlight. The only nit-pick I have is the display tends to be difficult to read at times. Otherwise, an excellent product!

                        This is with a doubt the most efficient battery chaarger I have ever used. The different cycles are a great choise to have and the recondition mode is great for older rechargeable batteries. I would reccomend this charger to anyone that uses rechageable AA or AAA batteries in their equiment. My buy another one for the convience because I use so many batteries in my gear.

                        I love that you can charge the batteries individually. I immediately conditioned all my rechargeable batteries. Easy to use and read. The display can be a little difficult to read if you have a lot of light behind you as a glare exists.I would love to see a new feature though. Some indicator to help identify batteries that are no longer charging to full capacity. It just says Done when charged and unless you check the charging quite often, it is hard to know which ones went from 3 bars to done, 2 bars to done or 1 bar to done. So I would love to see an indication of something to tell me that it charged fully to the capacity of the battery rather than wondering why it went from the 2 bar (50% indicator) straight to Done.

                          Charger works as advertised. It works quick and is so far very dependable. I haven't used the soft charge feature yet, but the quick charge feature does the job in about an hour.

                          No regrets on this purchase!

                            In it's basics its great. Love how it can charge in an hour which for me in a live production environment is key. Also like how it charges individually and you know which ones are done.

                            But the bad side is that the display is very hard to read. It has a very low intensity display that I have to rotate in order to see ! Also, it's menu system is not intuitive at all so you'll have to read the manual if this is your first time (which is slightly annoying because I have different technicians using this and they all have to be now taught).

                            If they fixed the screen, this would be perfect for me.

                                        Using to quickly charge AA's for field surveys. Very speedy to charge, < 1 hr for four batteries with clear display of the charging status. Have only been using for 2 weeks, but so far I recommend this charger.
