5.0 out of 5 stars Genuine UK charger, 26 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sanyo MQN04 HR-3UTGA Battery Pack (Accessory)
I had seen some great reviews of the Sanyo eneloop batteries, and after going through traditional AA batteries like crazy, I decided to buy a set. There seemed to be some confusion on other Amazon listings about whether the chargers came with UK or Eurozone ac sockets. I decided to chance it, since this retailer was advertising the UK plug, and I'm very happy to report that it _did_ come with the 3 pins.

The charger comes with 4x 1900-2000mAh AA batteries, that come pre-charged (Sanyo charge all their eneloop batteries with solar power at their factory in Japan!) & ready to use. It is worth noting too that eneloop batteries hold their charge for a year or so, meaning you can leave them in the drawer and still reasonably expect them to perform when you take them out. They also deteriorate much less than standard rechargeable batteries.

10 is a steal for 4x rechargeable AA batteries and a charger, I can heartily recommend this product.

Oh, the charger will also recharge AAA eneloop batteries as well- so no need for another charger (unless you use D cells, but I haven't needed one of those for years...)

Hi I have to the same product.
How did i know when it is fully charged?
Do I have to wait for 16 hours or does the green lights go off?

I had the same problem initially- it felt like the batteries were taking ages to charge! If you just leave them, then the lights go off. Think I'll get the fast charger next time though...

So you just waited 16 hours until it turns off?

The AA batteries take about 10 hours, is there anyway of knowing when its fully charged? Or did you wait 16 hours until the 'safety mechanisms' kicks in?

M. Dexter says:
I just waited until the lights went out - The batteries were pretty much totally drained, so I wasn't surprised that it took so long.

So yes, I put the drained batteries in, and then just left them alone until the lights went off, which took a long time (can't remember exactly how long though). They were fully charged after, so I resigned myself to the fact that they trickle charge over a very long period. The charger and batteries warmed up during the charging process, but not so much that I was worried. Hope that answers your question.

Apparently,if you read up on anorak battery sites,this is the best way,indeed the only 'proper' way to handle Nimhs.Fast chargers charge fastly...and ram the life from your batteries! An opinion endorsed by some dodgy electricians I know.
