Hello Qwerty11,

Our local Wal Mart carries the Ray O Vac IC3 system and does not carry Energizer chargers. This may differ at different stores.

I did find that Walgreens has it listed...

The same charger (Eveready 15 minute) is on sale at Menard's for $15, with a coupon that you can pick up in the store. I got one yesterday, and it also had a $2 instant coupon on the package, so it was only $13 total. I haven't charged them up and used them yet, because it's a gift. I'll let you know how they work after Christmas.

Picked one up at best buy. Got a question though, if I leave it one for several hours will it stop charging to prevent overcharing?:

Hello Qwerty11,

When the main charge has completed, it will continue to trickle charge at 100 mA for 24 hours, then shut off completely.

THanks silver, does it hurt to put a half empty batery in it?

Hello Qwerty11,

No problem at all with half used cells. We have had some reports of the cells heating up if you try to recharge a fully charged cell, but on my charger the light just blinks indicating an abnormal condition.

These reports are quite sporadic. I believe there is the possibility that the charger could malfunction, but it seems to be a remote possibility.

At any rate, it is important to remember that things can go wrong while charging, and it is best to pay attention to what is going on. Also, it helps to have an area that can tolerate a potential "melt down."
