This Watson 4-Hour Rapid Charger comes with four 1.2V, 2300mAh AA NiMH batteries that are rechargeable up to 1000 times. The charger will recharge 4 of these included batteries in about 280 min, or 2 in about 140 min. You can also use it to charge optional AA NiCd batteries, or AAA NiMH or NiCd's. The charger's integrated micro-controller ensures that each battery is charged to its full capacity, and automatic charge cut-off prevents overcharging. Should the controller and automatic cut-off function both fail, the safety guard timer will kick in to ensure that the charger still shuts off after 6 hr. The charger also has circuit and polarity protection. Two LED indicators display charging status, and there are two individually-monitored charging channels. The charger has switching 100-240VAC power, enabling use all over the world. Its compact outlet prongs can fold in, making the unit more compact for storage.

    4-Hour Rapid Charger with 4 AA NiMH Rechargeable Batteries (2300mAh) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 478.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good low cost rechargeable option For the price this is a great deal. You get 4 high capacity NiMH rechargeable batteries and a quick charger. However, I use this as my backup system. My primary charger is a Sony brand charger and low self discharge NiMH cells. The main benefits of the Sony are that the batteries will hold a charge longer. Meaning if you leave the charged batteries in a drawer for 6 months they will lose less of their charge than these watson batteries. Secondly, the Sony charger monitors all 4 batteries independently while charger whereas this watson only monitors the batteries in pairs. This means you can

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works, but Received as part of a package purchase. Charged the included batteries as specified. The two indicator LEDs seem inconsistent. One showed done and the other showed charging. I switched the position of the batteries a few times and got different readings each time. Never indicated all charged, but I tested the charge with a battery tester and the batteries were charged. Got it recently, so can't attest to the 1000 recharges which is a lot. Charger seems to get pretty hot, construction seems so-so.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact Travel Charger for NiHM AA and AAA This charger works great for keeping my NiMH batteries charged and ready to go. It has a flip out plug so it's quite compact and portable. It has dual charging so two batteries on the left and two on the right charged independently with two LEDs showing the status of each pair. Upon the first charge it did take almost 8 hours for all 4 batteries to show as charged and they did get really hot so it's recommended to use this charge in a cool and/or well ventilated area to prevent overheating or fires. I bought this when I bought the ZOOM Q2n so that I would have spare batteries to use with that recorder.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Met all expectations! Bought these at a very reasonable price, and with the 2300mAh, hoped it would go a long way for powering a Speedlite SB700 for a wedding shoot. Don't have an exact count on the shots took with the flash, but after 6 hours with TTL on at 200 and 400 ISO the ready light was READY almost instantly. I had 2 sets of backups just in case but never even considered changing the set. Charging was a breeze. Only thing is after charging and removing, tried to check how long it would take to charge again without use and the ready light from amber to green took an hour on a supposedly fully charged set. Don't know what that's about, not a battery chemist here. But still no problems in performance on first use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BATTERIES FOR THE MONEY I was very skeptical when I ordered this charger, complete with 4 batteries for such a low price. But B&H (whom I always trust) must have done their homework on different brands of batteries and chargers because these Watson batteries seem to last forever in my Nikon SB-910 flash and they recycle the flash faster too! I have no complaints about the charger or the batteries. One thing to be aware of however is the fact that these 2300mAh AA NiMH batteries require a charge time of almost 5 hours when you charge all 4 batteries at the same time. So, there's no fast charging when these batteries are exhausted and you're on location in the middle of an assignment. I bought lots of extra batteries just for this reason. SHIPPING FROM B&H WAS FAST AND FREE AND THE PRICE WAS THE LOWEST.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid power I use these in my Zoom H4n and my Sennheiser wireless. I was finding that ordinary Rayovacs and Duracells were dying in about 90 minutes. These Pearlstones go about three hours with some juice to spare, and I don't have to throw them away. They are definitely the way to go in equipment with high current drain.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LONG-lasting charge! These batteries and the charger came with my Canon 580EX II flash. I am really impressed. They charge quickly, and hold a charge for far longer than I ever anticipated, especially considering that my first extensive use of them was photographing a medical school graduation with a tele lens at a long distance, so the flash was operating at full power on almost every shot. I've not had them long enough to know whether their ultimate life will be good, or whether their ability to hold a charge will wane, but right now, I could not be more impressed or pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Not much to say about this simple but necessary piece of equipment except that I'm glad I just added it to my shopping cart while buying other stuff -
