I was eager to try out the Duracell Rechargeable Batteries & Charger because I am one who goes through batteries like clock-work. I have a battery drawer full of all brands and types. I have tried out an Energizer Charger & "C" Batteries before so I have a comparison between the two to share. I gave Duracell a 4 out of 5 stars due to the quick charge time but small size. Duracell charger gives you a red/green light to let you know when they are finished charging. I feel they were always recharged within an hour and ready to go. However, I have only had to charge them up twice. I used the AA batteries for my Wii Remote and the AAA for my graphing calculator I use for college. Not once has my devices died due to batteries yet. However, I still go ahead and charge them back up every couple days anyway. The charge time is great and they last a long time. My only complaint is the size of the charger. It only holds enough room for 2 AA and 2 AAA batteries. Some devices annoyingly use 3 or sometimes 4 batteries. So this small charger would be best used for 4 AAA or 4 AA. Not mixing two and two. If you use both AA and AAA around your house often then I'd recommend buying TWO Duracell chargers. Compared to Energizer charger, the Duracell is amazing. Energizer's batteries dies so quickly and require charging almost every 24 hours. The charge time to fully recharge the C batteries were 3+ hours. Duracell exceeded my expectations for a rechargeable device.
My son loves to play with electronic toys, but we have to replace the batteries all the time. It is frustrating, so I was looking for a more powerful and longer lasting battery. I was able to test Duracell Quantum AA batteries for free and I was pleasantly surprised. My son's toy seemed to work a bit better with better sound and electronic capability than with other batteries. And it is still going strong! I have been very happy with the small but mighty powerhouse.
Well its a battery charger. Now don't get me wrong... I love to be able to recharge batteries. I have kids, which means we use batteries. Wii U remotes, remote cars, various games. To say the least. The Duracell Ion 4000 is a decent charger. It charges 2-4 AA's, or 2-4 AAA's, or two of each at a time. That is nice. The package comes with 2 of each size battery and you can buy additional batteries. Charge time is roughly over an hour. There is another model if you want/need batteries faster. We just bought extras so we can always have a set ready to go and charge time is not that important this way. The good thing about the charger is it accommodates this process by automatically shutting off after the batteries are fully charged. There is a light indicator that changes from red to green when they are done. The batteries that are included do come pre-charged so that is one less step to deal with. All in all its a simple charger to use and does what it is supposed to.
