I am planning on slowly replacing all my AA and AAA batteries with eneloops and have been looking into chargers. I should be honest and say I don't know much about the technical details other than learning here about the cycles and mAh. My battery use will be to replace all the household AA and AAA as well as to run my Sunwayman D40A occasionally.
I am looking for 1 charger ideally one that has an car adapter or one that a car adapter can be purchased for.
I've read through numerous threads and it seems people rave about the Maha Powerex MH-C9000 and the La Crosse Technology BC-700 seems to be a popular less expensive choice. Frankly I have no idea what options I do and do not need. It seems the ability to see the batteries voltage and capacity would be useful, as well as discharging and recharging to get a good full charge which both seem to have. But after this I'm not sure what options are missing and needed from C9000 for 2x the price.
In other words I'm looking for recommendations on a charger for an newbie with very modest usage demands. I don't want to break the bank buying features I don't need or understand, but don't want to buy junk that will ruin the cells.
Thanks for the help,
