Default Rayovac 15-minutes charger

Well the old post on this subject was deleted by last week system crash, but I have been playing with theses 15 minutes 2000mAH NiMh for a week now, and they seem to last as long as my 2100mAh (or 2300). Heck I can't wear any of them out lately within a day on my D7! :P





The trick is theses 15 minutes chargers cost less than their 1hr (under $20 for the dual and <$30 for the quad) chargers @ Walmart and they come with 2 batteries for starters... :lol: :lol: :lol:

It's actually smaller(thinner) than their current 1-hr charger!

Considering there's now a fan and two double-sided circuit cards inside! The wall transformer is also smaller but now put out a powerhouse of 14.5V @ 4.5A ...It's actually a steal (and it works with regular NiMh too, but the fan does not kick on)! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I got a set at Sams Club in Clearwater, FL for 35 bucks. The 4 charger and 4 batteries, and they work great in my A70. Cant seem to kill em! They charge AAA AA IC3's, and NiMH and NiCads at regular charge times (not 15 min of course). So, everyone tell Steve to head over to the one at 19 and Gulf to Bay...lol.
