Energizer Recharge Rapid Charger
As soon as I got this product it would not charge.
I had the recommended batteries so I didn't think it was that
replaced them with new batteries (recommended and another brand just in case) but to no avail!
I'm going to have to return this..
And apparently a LOT of people agree with me.

Does NOT work.
I bought this a couple of months ago on Amazon. This unit was a replacement for a RayOvac 15 minute charger that lasted over 7 years. Before that I had a Sears unit that also lasted many years (not a rapid charger).
I've tried using several brands of batteries incase that was the problem, but nothing works. The fan will turn on for a few seconds, then stop. Regardless of which batteries are in the unit, the red light flashes and batteries don't charge. The RayOvac only cost about $18 when I bought it.......this unit is more than twice that cost, and useless. seems there are enough complaints about this product to take it off the market.

Bought the rapid charger as a solution to all my AA needs. It worked ok for the first few charges and then it wouldn't charge any more.
At first I thought it was the batteries, but no, any series of similar batteries won't charge i get alternate green and red flashing lights.
The charger is similar to other manufacturers rapid chargers and cost more, I think I will get a different one, while i wait for a replacement.

Worst I've ver owned
Already had to return several batteries that wouldn't charge and now this charger doesn't even charge the batteries that came with it. You get nothing but constant red flashing light meaning it's not working when using only batteries that are made for this device. Funny thing it I have an old Rayovak charger that charges ANY rechargeable batteries. I've always been a fan of energizer, but after all this aggravation, I'll never buy another energizer product.

I loved, but within a week it's not working!
We bought three chargers, the rapid one broke within a week. It blinks between green and red and refuses to just stay on red until it charges. It's frustrating because of how expensive this was. I'd love to say it's worth the money, seemed to be, but not if we can't get more than a weeks use out of it. The smart charger that we brought broke too, three months later... now we are down to the value charger and will have to wait hours for our batteries to charge, which is a huge bummer when you have three kids all with their own leappads, all where the batteries run out at the same time... UGH!

AWESOME Product, has saved my butt many times!!
WOW I can't get enough of this product, forreal. At work, I am in charge of taking photographs at events. My Canon takes 4AA batteries and I've always preferred rechargeable due to environmental friendliness. These things have been a*LIFE SAVER* so many times. No waiting 1, 3, 6..*8* HOURS to charge..if that were the case I'd need to charge many sets days ahead of time!! with this AND the awesome car charger, I have 2 sets. bam.
Energizer is boss.
Be careful you use the specific mah batteries!! ^.^
