I've gone ahead an ordered the MH-C401FS from



The C401FS is a perfectly good charger, used to have one years ago (that thing's been around forever). The main reason why you'd want to go for one of the fancier ones is to diagnose bad/failing cells, when the LCD display and recondition functionality is useful to see what's up with the cell. If you just want a straight charge capability, the basic Maha's are perfect for the job.

I've gone ahead an ordered the MH-C401FS from Meets the budget and straight foward to use for the non-techies in the family. The MC3000 was definitely appealing.


For batteries I'll probably continue with eneloop and/or eneloop pro because I can buy them at heavily discounted prices.


Cheers for your help everyone.





That's the one I've got. 15 years plus old and still going strong.


Works well with eneloop batteries, I just risked trying them as they didn't exist when I brought it.


Pulse charging for conditioning batteries seems a lot less hassle then a charge, discharge cycle.

I use a litto kala (sp?) engineer that I got off aliex or ebay a while ago.


It charges, it tells me what it took, I can choose a current.


Really with how few things I have now that need AA/AAAs in them its not a huge burden, and the cost of cells is so low that I CBF with any restoration process etc if they are acting flakey. Most things I just use alkalines in except my LG magic remote that chews thru things like they are going out of style.
