Energizer Recharge Value Charger
I bought a unit and used it twice; thinking it was user error, but the light never changed from red to green and never powered off even after the second time. The batteries were hot and I was worried. I returned the unit and batteries back to the store and exchanged it for an identical item thinking the one unit may have been defective... but my new unit is not functioning properly either. I plugged it in this morning at 9AM and its now 2:35 in the afternoon and the light has not changed to green. The unit is near my desk, so I have had my eye on it all morning... no changes. Batteries are warm to the touch. I'll be returning it for a full refund. :-(

Charger does not work properly.
Having purchased a different Energizer Charger approx. 4 yrs ago that still works, I was comfortable with buying this product..,I was wrong. Brought this home from the store, immediately opened the package and started charging the batteries at about 5 pm. The light is still solid red at 9 am. This unit seems to have several "glitches" according to other reviews. I'll be returning it today.

I believe this product to be a good investment because normal batteries are expensive and don't last, so I am saving money over time. Also, this product included four rechargeable batteries. I plugged it in over night around 8pm and it was fully charged by the time I checked it the next morning, around 8:30. The light indicators were working properly and the instructions were simple... Plug it in. I am actually looking forward to purchasing another set to minimize charge time for additional batteries.

Bought this product yesterday morning. Did not use the batteries before charging. I "charged" them from about 1pm yesterday until 6 am today and the batteries are still not charged. The red "charge" light never went out during all that time.
When I finally unplugged the charger this morning 3 of the batteries were hot and one was stone cold.
I have had this happen previously with a couple of Energizer chargers and just threw them out. Wanted to try again but was very disappointed. By the looks of other reviews this is not an isolated incident.

Would not work out of the box
I purchased this product for my nephews vtech e-reader. Right out of the box the batteries were not charged enough to turn on the device. I charged them overnight and put them into the reader that night after I came home from work.Again the device did not turn on. I finally tried regular alkaline duracell batteries and the device turned on right away. I did try the Energizer rechargeable batteries in my wireless mouse and they worked just fine. It looks like they don't work well to run on a high energy mobile product.

both green flashing lights
Recently purchased at walmart. model# CHVCM3. happy with price and unit appearance. came with four AA NiMH batteries. Tried charging four AA rechargeable batteries. Are out of lawm LED solar lights. Batteries are labelled "solar lights". Thru research on the web, am told that there is no such thing as a "solar battery". Is this true? both green lights flash immediately with these four solar batteries installed. Will only charge supplied batteries if a problem. Any input greatly appreciated. An energizer user for many years. Will close and watch for reply. Thanxxxxxxxxx
