[Newegg] PowerEx Imedion AA 8Pk 2400mAh LSD Rechargeable Batteries + Case $17.99 shipped - Page 5

An update on one of my recommended chargers. The BM200 Battery Analyzer already an amazing deal at $34.61 has received a price cut to $29.47 shipped. That's an unbeatable price for a charger with its features and also don't forget the 2x C/D battery adapters included. So you can charge and test AAA, AA, C, and D rechargeable batteries. This is also the only battery analyzer in my list that can test internal resistance (I haven't really found it that useful but it's a cool feature none the less).

Here is an image from eBay seller rdana of the BM200 with C/D adapters installed after testing the capacity of a C and D battery:

The Imedions are still in stock so if you are in need of some quality high capacity rechargeable AA batteries there's really no better deal.

It does have a few extra features but they both have their strengths and weaknesses. The BC700 is still a perfect starter battery analyzer and even with the 7 or so smart chargers I own, the BC700 is still my favorite. thumb.gif They are both good chargers but very different in some ways.

The biggest strength of the BC700 is its refresh function is intelligent. It keeps cycling until no more capacity is gleaned from the charge and discharge cycles, and best of all after each discharge is complete the capacity is saved until the next discharge has completed (so you are constantly updated with what the capacity has increased to, you can aslo use the refresh function to test the remaining charge of a battery such as if your testing the low self-discharge characteristics of a battery after months in storage). The BM200 has a refresh function but does a set amount of cycles (I think it's 3 or something) and after each discharge cycle the capacity is not saved (big negative in my opinion). So you have to guess if you think you should do another refresh, instead of the charger doing this for you as with the BC700. It's more compact so it's much easier to use as a travel charger and makes it more versatile in this way.

The BM200 has some strengths too. Like being easier to remove individual batteries when all four slots are being used (due to the much larger size and increased battery spacing). The display is backlit (although not very evenly) and can display four digits even when the capacity is 2000mAh or higher (2000mAh and above the BC700 can display only 3 digits, such as instead of 2093mAh it displays 2.09Ah). With the eBay listing I linked it comes with the C/D charge adapters making it able to charge and test those larger batteries. It has more charge currents available than the BC700 although I wouldn't recommend anything higher than 400mAh for AAAs or 800mAh for AAs (as the BM200 is known to have heat issues beyond those currents, for high capacity Cs and Ds though the max current of 1400mAh is fine and has no heat issues).

Sweet, it works really good. Some Duracell batteries I got in an eBay auction were in rough shape when it comes to capacity (it was a 250 lot sold as is). Some had capacity as low as 25mAh with the first discharge cycle but the BC700 brought them up to 1800-2100mAh range that it should be. That's a prime example of the amount of damage a dumb timer based charger can do but thankfully can be fixed in a lot of cases.

For those interested in even cheaper rechargeable LSD batteries, I started another deal thread with Tenergy Centura AAs (as low as $1.42 per battery with the 12-pack) and AAAs (as low as $1.04 per battery with the 12-pack):

They are a great buy that's for sure. Yep, the TN157 is still MIA. I actually acquired a TN160 off eBay for $$26 shipped, which has 12 bays.eek.gif Don't laugh but it will be my 8th smart charger.biggrin.gif

Well it's definitely nice for charging lots of batteries. The BC700 has all the extra features for everything else.thumb.gif Having a plethora of chargers myself I know having a more than one is definitely nice and each have their strong points and uses (the BC700 having a lot). The TN160 has a pretty specific use, charging a few to a lot of batteries or discharging a few to a lot of batteries for refreshing. I'll try to remember to send you a PM to let you know what I think of my TN160 once I get it and test it out (I should have it by Monday but it could come as early as tomorrow).

This is lasting longer than usual. It still might end or go out of stock without notice, so get some while you can at this very low price.
