Hi All

I was wondering what you guys like for AA battery chargers?
Preferrably ones that could be run off 12 volt batteries or solar.
Thank you All
Kid Couteau

Carl:
  It is my opinion that LA CROSSE makes the best of the smart AA charger/testers for batteries and I like the BC-700 though now an improved version is being made. Below are links to various AA chargers that run from 12 volt solar at my home and BOL...they all do a good job though some can do more and give more data and detail than others....Criteria I look for in a charger besides the size battery is that FOR AA CHARGERS: 300 to 500 milliamp charge rate and INDIVIDUAL (one at a time charging...not charge in pairs...links below are all workable ,reliable chargers

I must add that a lot depends on the choice of battery you use ...My suggestion ,with over 10 years in use is the ENELOOP...now with a different manufacturer and a third generation...I like them BEST and TENERGY is a close second though they tend to self discharge faster than the ENELOOP AA and AAA cells...I use TENERGY "D" cells for some radios and lights and a radio will run 10 hours a day for a month while the lights usually get charged every two weeks . A quick search of ENELOOP will find results from myself and others in TSP forum ( tip: search from HOME to get complete search of the forum

Thanks Carl
Yeah Steven Harris likes the Eneloop as well.

I like the Maha Powerex WizardOne MH-C9000.  It’s bigger than the La Crosse but the settings menu is more intuitive, so I wind up using it the most.

With the Low Self Discharge of the ENELOOP,I find them economical when compared to alkaline and 'dry' cells as I even use the ENELOOP's in wall clocks and remote controls now as a real benefit....I have yet to have an ENELOOP cell leak in a device ...EXCEPT for when lightening caused a failure in a BC-700 and I neglected it for some 3 weeks...story and fotos in the forum.
