Hey guys, I recently purchased some Duracell Rechargeable Pre-Charged AA batteries (1.2V / 2000mAh) and I would like to know if I can charge them in an older Energizer charger (model CHDC-CA) that I have? If I remember correctly, the Energizer batteries that came with the charger were 1.2V / 2500mAh. Thanks.

Yes, you can charge any NiMH cell in any NiMH charger


BUT.....


That particular charger is a piece of crap. It is what is called a "dumb timed charger" which does not monitor the actual charge state of cells, and will kill them in short order.

Do yourself a favor and get a popper independent channel smart charger. They are not that expensive.
