The batteries can be charged up to 1,000 times and are mercury- and cadmium-free.

The kit also includes two plastic Watson battery cases that each hold up to 4 AA or AAA batteries in dedicated slots. The case has an extremely compact form factor for easy storage in your pocket or a small compartment in your gear bag. The case has a snap closure and features an attachment point for connecting a second identical case, which could in turn be connected to another to create a chain, giving you an easy expansion option for storing more batteries.

Got the kit today, still recharging the batteries... After about 2 hours if recharging, the kit becomes too hot that it will start burning, will test the capacity tomorrow

    Comments about Watson 8-Bay Rapid Charger Kit with AA NiMH Rechargeable Batteries (2300mAh, 8-Pack):

    This is my 1st recharable battery charger. It seems fairly intuitive but I read the instruction manual which was limited. It seems it has a discharge & recharge capacity & full-charge capacity can take a couple of hours. It seems if you push the button once it will discharge & then recharge but if you push the button twice it will recharge. Love that it says it will stop charging when full.
