Review: Energizer Recharge Smart Charger

The last time I paid attention to rechargeable batteries was probably back in the early 1990s. We had this huge recharging tech that allowed you to recharge all sorts of batteries – none of which we owned – so we were limited to recharging the D cells we had and used in, as I recall, some kind of remote controlled boat.

Anyway, Energizer has brought the battery charger into the 21st century by adding an LCD display that shows current charge level and, get this, hours left until a full charge.

There’s not much to say here. You can charge AA and AAA batteries – not at the same time – and the $19.99 kit includes four AA batteries, which is nice.

Slow charge rate prevents damage to battery during charging and extends
number of life cycles
· Large LCD Screen displays charging progress via a countdown clock and fuel gauge
· Charges 2 or 4 AA or AAA NiMH rechargeable batteries
· ENERGY STAR®-certified
· Disposable and bad battery detector

Bottom Line
Well, the charger works and it has an LCD read-out. We are truly living in the future.
