    Dear All,

    I have looked at earlier threads on charges. And Ansmann is mentioned but not the actual model, as the prices vary greatly, please can you assist and also give your thoughts on other chargers please? :lease:

    Regards Spidey

    Just went into local Maplins and saw Uniross X-Press 1000 Ultra fast charger + 4 x AA 2000mAh's and 8 x C&D battery converters for £9.98..... so I bought the only two left on the shelf. The batteries alone can sell for 8 quid...thanks Maplin's! :clap:

    I did go into Jessops. But they were selling the Uniross X-press without the C&D converters for £29.99 and on ebay the converters are selling for a fiver on there own. :hiya:

    Hello! And my inaugral post is about batteries (?!)

    Anyone know about the ones from Powerex/Maha?

    Read they were one of the best (inteligent charger for one, from what I read, can trickle charge it versus some chargers that looked like they just quick charge (15 minutes I saw from one! That surely damages the battery from heat alone!) and are on timers and that's it).

    But, availability is really bad! Their UK site won't load for me (they even sent an email today telling me to visit it!) if you can access it could you tell me? Might be a BT broadband problem... www.mahaenergy.co.uk

    So, UniRoss or Energizer? Or stick to my guns and get a Powerex set from the UK?

    Its not you - that site is unobtainable on ntl and a tracert site can't find it either.

    I've only ever used the charger that came with the camera. Recent cameras are far less battery hungry than older digitals so fast charging is unnecessary if you have a spare set.
