Default New At Wal-Mart: Charger w/4 NiMH 1800 mAH Batteries For $10

It is called "Digital" brand, and they are in the camera section. The only drawback, is that the charger takes 16 hours (they also have a faster charger for more money).

I was all set to buy a Rayovac charger w/2 batts for $17, plus two add'l batts for $8, for a total of $25! This was until I spied their new product.

The Rayovac 1-hr charger alone is worth $25. You've just got the batteries for free!

... You'll need a fast charger and end up buying one sooner or later!

Not really. All you need it two sets of batteries; one charges while the other is being used.

I guess it all depends on how many pictures one shoots in a day! (...and how many sets of batteries one has)

Don't get me wrong. You've got a good deal too, you've paid for the 1800mAh batteries and get the cheap trickle charger thrown in for free...

:lol: The Ray-O-Vac charger can recharge them faster than I can drain them. 2 sets of batteries and it's almost a non stop affair. I have 4 sets, recharge them the evening before and you are good for all day.
