Hi. Can you recommend a slow/smart charger?

 

I just use the eneloop ones I have. I think they are this model. They have separate channels per battery*:

According to reviews, this sony is 4 channel also:

* The newer model charge from Sanyo isn't 4 channel and requires you to charge in pairs (SECMQN064) so I'd be hesitant in buying it.

I've not had any experience with NiZn rechargeable batteries yet but has anyone else? I'm wondering if they actually have a use for anything outside of low end digital cameras that take standard AA cells.

The Duracell stay charged AA / AAA batteries are the best I've used so far but they're also the most expensive.

What about AmazonBasics rechargeables? Reviews are pretty good and say they're hybrid just like Eneloops (and much cheaper depending on the country).

 

Two famous brands that make smart chargers are Maha and Lacrosse, you can find all their chargers on Amazon.

I forgotten about this guys Amazon reviews. He does all kinds of battery related testing, and I'd generally trust his reviews:

You can search great rechargeable batteries on Amazon.com. Most of the time, their reviews say a lot about a product and they are very helpful way of deciding what to get, and not just for batteries, but for a lot of things. Eneloop batteries, from experience, are great batteries you can try out. They also keep their charge a good deal, so if you get the ones with high mAh, it's pretty much 2 for 2.
