best battery charger

My 3 yo son has all kinds of toys that use either AA or AAA batteries. Which is the best battery charger for these batteries? Hope this is the correct forum- thanks, Paul

Hi Paul,
first not all batteries are rechargeable & ensure your batteries are Ni-Zn,Ni-Cd,Ni-MH and Li-Ion type.
Electronic cahrger is recommend,picture in link for refers only.http:

I am aware that you need rechargeable batteries. Looking for the best charger - supplied batteries combination. memomark-jimmy, sorry, couldn't get the link to come up but thanks. Paul

There was a rumor going around that rechargables did not have enough voltage for Wii remotes. Ever hear of that? Does it make any sense?

true, some things don't like the 1.2v rechargables and need the 1.5v alkalines. there are true 1.5v rechargables out there, you just have to look.

as far as what charger, depends on teh battery. you cannot recharge a Li-Ion in some Ni-Cad/NiMH chargers. but most all abtts will charge in one rated for Li-ION.

I guess I would like someone to recommend a specific battery charger + rechargeable batteries that I could purchase. Thanks, Paul

I've been very happy with the Maha MH-C9000 I bought almost a year ago. Seemed like the best I could find at the time. Thomas Distributing carries a lot of chargers and batteries.

Here is a link that might be useful: Thomas Distributing

I would like a charger that does AA and AAA- 8 at a time. Can't seem to locate the one netlos recommended. Paul
