Default battery charger

anyone know if a good quick charge brand batt charger that will displays when the batt is done charging?...and will turn its self off


Note: i'm using ni-mh.
Can a battery charger really over charge a battery? I do think these type do have some memory in them? Watcha think?

thanks

There are several. One of the MOST popular ones is the MAHA C 204F that you can purchase from www.thomasdistributing.com
Another one is the Quest Q2 charger (it charges the batteries independently, 1 to 4, not just 2 or 4).
The Lighting Pack 4000n (www.ripvan100.com) is another one to look at.
The Rayovac 1 hour charger is available in Wal Mart and Targets (along with the car adapter) for 29.99, but there are those who do not like this one as it gets the batteries pretty hot when it is finished, but it does charge them in one hour or less.

Hope this helps you some,
Steven

I haven't tried anything but the Maha C204F and I am 100% satisfied. So much that I went out and got another one... and 12- 1800mHA "AA" Powercells to power my CP5K.

I decided on it mostly from reviews as well as Maha being a great maker of rechargeables. For the price, they are great.
