I love this rechargeable battery Battery charger, it's realiable but takes six hours to fully charge your AA or AAA NIMH batteries, I have always loved the Sanyo alkaline batteries so I thought that I would trust and like this charger and as it turns out I do like the charger I am happy with my purchase of this charger, it will charge both AA and AAA at the same time and has upper and lower contacts to charge these batteries unlike some brands you can not charge both at the same time nor just two and some chargers say they will charge AAA but do not charge those batteries at all, this charger is light but solidly well built seems tough enough to stand up to rough handling and use and there are no cords to trip over as it just plugs into the wall outlet and it's out of the way and has a light to tell you it's charging and one for it's ready light which signals it is done, so you can't overcharge your batteries or forget they are being charged as the lights are big enough to see and serves as a reminder that your batteries are on charge, wish that I had bought this charger sooner but since I have purchased a mini mouse and use AAA batteries thsi product was needed and I am very happy I did, my husband is even jealous of this charger now as his says it will charge AAA but does not so we have found, he now wants his own Sanyo charger, as he likes it too. And when not in use it is easy to store and the plug just folds away into the unit with a simple push into the recessed area on the rear of the charger with no cords attached, nothing to lose no hassles with cords, just plug and charge, very easy. Even though it takes six hours to charge a long charge is actually better than a quick charge as I heard that long charges give you full charges which are better and the quick charges are short but not fully charged. Sanyo has been around for years so this product is not junk and has a one full year guarantee. When I saw this product there was no hesitation to buy it, I was actually excited when I saw it. I will also be purchasing Sanyo batteries as I really like them too.
