I'm looking for a charger and some batteries to use with my digital camera. I've been looking on eBay and there are dozens of cheap smart chargers, are they ok to use, or is it better to get a band name one?
I don't particularly mind the charge time, as long as it isn't more than 12 hours for 2400mah batteries.

Also is this (uniross encore) a smart charger or will it just time the charge rather than monitor the batteries?


Is this charger any good?


Or this one?


If someone could recommend a good priced charger it would be much appreciated.

None of the chargers recommended are available in the UK which is why I asked about the other ones. Steve's battery charger page doesn't mention any of the chargers I ask about.

Sorry I should have said I am in Europe not the US when asking originally.

The Encore modellooks adequate. I have a Vanson V-1000 that I got on Ebay for US$23 (~12£) with 8 Nexcell 1800 batteries. So far it seems pretty good and I haven't had any problems with it. 2-3 hours to charge. It's the same as the Digital Concepts model pictured here whichI have seen for US$17 with 4 batteries.
