    Anything as fast as the new Rayovac 15 minute NI-MH charger that will be
    released in October that is currently out now or coming soon?

    Was looking to upgrade my snail slow 3 hour (12x slower than the
    Rayovac) Kodak K1000 charger with something faster. All of the other
    chargers out there are just far too slow (eg. even the latest 1 hour
    chargers are 4x slower).

    Do you get the usual trade-offs when you barbecue your batteries? Hot
    cell are short lived cells.

    Buy extra cells and charge slower. I use a 16 hour charger.

  4. They don't actually get too hot. They get hot only when the
    charger doesn't reduce the current as they get full.

    I've been using one of Rayovac's fast chargers (obviously not the new 15
    minute one) for about a year and have noticed no hot cells or reduced
    run time. And this with a wide variety of batteries. I've been very
    happy with this product.
