I wasn't sure if this question should be posted here or in the Batteries subforum, but I am considering getting an N-cell light. I don't have a logical reason to do so, but for some reason I just want one.

I am looking at the Interstate Battery NiMH N-cells.

I have two questions:

Can I use the charger that comes with Duracell white-top LSD NiMH? If not, which charger should I use?

Do I need to get magnetic spacers, or is there another kind of spacer/adapter that I can use? I think I've seen a AA adapter, but I can't remember where.

jag-engr,

I use a microprocessor controlled aa/aaa charger and a bit of metal to make up the length differance. I have the Interstate N-cell and it takes about half the time to charge that a(n) aaa NiMH takes.
Most of the smart chargers have a bar graph that indicates the level of charge for each battery and use (-) delta V to determine the cut-off point.
My metal spacer is actually the metal storage tip taken off of a mechanical pencil (0.7 mm I believe).

Regards,
Walt
