rechargeable consumer batts
Posted 13 June 2012 - 08:00 PM
Can anyone recommend any good 9v, AA and AAA battery chargers and rechargeable battery brands. I'm looking for one with a few slots to charge, give status of the charge, charge fast and are smart. I'd like to know what crew on set use/suggest.

Not many/any people here use them much.
Do some research and let us know what you find/figure out.
Maybe if you found a good system we would.

Which is why most people just stick to disposable duracell's etc for torches, worklights and what not.
I just make sure any little torches etc run off of Double AA batteries as they are the most common and easy to find batteries around.

I've used this one with aa batts that have been constantly used.
this one looks like it connects to skynet.
most of the reviewers on this one use this to recharge batts for church mics.
I posted this question because on set, my AC's bartech needed to be changed about 2-3 times throughout the day for a 3 day shoot. It was just slightly annoying because the store near me only sells 2 packs of 9V at about $10 each. My question should have been,' is it even worth buying one.' But I guess I'm the one who should be doing my own math, lol. But maybe I would be better off posting this on a sound mixing forum. Either way, I was just curious.

I personally bounce around about 20 "Eneloop" AA and 20 AAA batteries that I've bought at Costco over the years for use in my household personal electronics. They hold a charge fairly well (Apple now sells rechargeable, rebranded batteries in their stores which are Eneloops).
