I just finished up about a year long study of the self discharge rate of the Eneloop cells. It looks like they may be the "real thing."

Any NiMH charger that can charge 2000 mAh cells. The eneloop 4 cell charger does have independent charging circuits so you may consider it.

Sorry for the lazy question but will my Minwa MW5798N charger work with Eneloops? Thanks!

Since your charger charges at 800 mA, it will work fine with eneloop cells.

Thanks for the quick answer! Just for my own information, how would I have been able to fnd that answer on my own? And, what is the difference between charging at 2000 & 800 mAh?

Clicking on the Tech Specs link provided me with the charging rate.

Charging at 800 mA should give you longer cell life. 2000 mAh is the capacity of the eneloop cells, while 800 mA is the current used to charge your cells.There's a difference between mA and mAh.

I should've known that! Serves me right for asking after being up for 18+ hours.

Hello Tom,

My son during Passover will visit us, from London so I ask him to buy for me two quads (8 Batteries) of this brand.
