    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.

    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.

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

      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.

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

        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!

                                I find reading the LCD display difficult. The words are tiny and not easy to read. You have seconds to select soft charging or conditioning once you insert a battery - or the unit selects conditioning. You should have more time to select what you want.

                                    I bought this charger so I could charge all my batteries for weddings. I need my batteries to be reliable and this is the perfect charger. It charges eight batteries at once, but lets you see exactly how each battery is charged. It also makes sure they all have a full charge.

                                    It's fast and quite reliable.

                                        The slow charge mode is at least twice as fast as other chargers I've used.

                                          Allows me to charge up to 8 NiMH in less than one hour. Best feature is a chip for each individual battery. Some lesser charges stop charging all batteries when the first one is full. Note: I tend to use the 2-hour charge option (puts less strain on the batteries); they will last longer.
