Do you go loopy over Eneloops? (sorry, that’s the best I could come up with in 20 seconds). Adorama is offering the Sanyo Eneloop 2-slot Travel Charger with two AA Eneloop rechargeable batteries (pre-charged, 1900-2000mah) for $10 with free shipping. As you can tell from the Sanyo brand name, this is an older model, but has a very sold 4.8 out of 5 based on 120 customer reviews at Adorama. It charges two AAs in about 4 hours. More details in the description and the reviews.
This could be a nice introductory gift to rechargeable batteries for people who use single-use batteries – as long as you explain to them that you can’t recharge single-use batteries with them. Perhaps point them to the exploding battery YouTube videos to make sure they “get it” – because a few will probably be tempted to “try it just in case it works”. You know how people are 🙂
