Excellent little charger for AA cells  Time owned: more than 12 months
This charger got a high rating on an internet review site oriented toward digital cameras, so I purchased one. I liked it so much I purchased a second.

The charger works well and my AA cells do not overheat, even though they recharge in a couple of hours. I've used this charger with a range of capacity ratings, and it handles them all.

The folding outlet plug makes it easy to store, and there is a discharge/conditioning option available via a switch on the back.
