    Super deal, almost worth visiting a costco for, but you risk walking out with a lot more.

    The Westbury NY store has this set back in stock again. Today was the first time I saw them since the end of February. The price is 30 dollars at least for now. I wish they brought back the 10 packs of blue AA’s, I would have walked out with a few of those.

    So is this almost the same as CC-17 and the usb feature is for charging cellphone conventionally?

    Yes, specs on the BQ-CC75 charger are basically the same as on the BQ-CC17 - it's slow, but it charges the cells individually. From pictures, I think it's a little bit larger than the CC17, but haven't seen dimensions.

    It can provide 1A out through the USB only when plugged into AC power. It can not use the batteries as a powerbank. If it is charging batteries when you plug a USB cable in, it will stop charging the batteries and switch to providing power out through the USB.

    What is 1A?

    So in laymans term the function of of the usb in cc75 is just head that connect the cable thru a cellphone.

    1A = 1 amp. That's the electrical current the USB port on the BQ-CC75 can supply: Twice the charge as the original USB standard, but half the current that Quick Charge compliant chargers can supply. A typical smartphone would fully charge from that port in 2-4 hours.

    I think you're getting at the right concept in layman's terms.

    Thanks iamlucky13

    is this available again at costco at $30 plus the discount?

    If eneloop makes a charger with a powerbank feature, this will be the coolest, handiest powerbank ever.

    I don't know of any chargers that can operate as a powerbank when using NiMH cells. It would be great, but they seem to just support USB out if using lithium-ion. I guess the voltage boost is a lot easier with lithium-ion.

    Ah ok. But if its possible it will be a game changer. Just bring a charger a lots of nimh cells. By the way can i connect a solar powerbank and power this charger?

    They are now giving a 6 dollar manufactures rebate at checkout. So it’s 23.99 but you pay sales tax on the 29.99 price. This time it clearly says limit 3. Last year the rebate was 10 dollars, but I still think it’s a good deal.

    Sales tax rates vary depending on where you buy the item, ask your relative in the US what they pay in sales tax where they shop. Where I bought them the rate is 8.625% for example. The package I am referring to is not available on the Costco USA web site. There are a few sellers on E-Bay selling them but they are charging a lot more money than Costco. The Costco Canada web site has a few Eneloop offerings that are not available in the USA, they might be worth a look.

    so in your case you got it 24 + 2.5 = 26.5. Still a good discounted price. The 30dollar is actally a good price. But its really better if its 20dollars.

    I got a set last weekend and to illustrate the size difference, here’s a picture:
