  3. But be sure that your Uniross batteries actually work! Of 12 that I
    bought, 2 had no charge from the factory, and would not hold charge
    subsequently. Jessops refunded the cost of purchase.

    I suspect that Rayvac 15 minute charger requires Rayovac batteries. Unless
    that 15 minute charge time is a must have feature, I would prefer the
    flexibility of being able to use any NiMH.

  5. Possibly so, but the original poster specifically said "Uniross Ultrafast
    Charger (1-2hr)".

    The Uniross charger I think charges any Ni-mH batteries upto 2100mAh plus it
    comes with a in-car cigar lead.

    The Rayovac charger only takes Rayovac I-C3 batteries (it won't charge
    standard Rayovac Rechargable batteries) They must be I-C3 batteries. Even
    then it only charges the battery upto 75% of its capacity in 15mins. To
    fully charge to maximum takes 8 hours.

    I believe Uniross are releasing very soon there own 2300mAh 15 minute
    charger that recharges the batteries to 100% within 15 minutes.

    The deal on the charger I mentioned earlier is so good because they give an
    extra set of 4 AAs 2100mAh plus free postage

    Incorrect. My 2 battery Rayovac all-in-one 15minute IC3 charger can
    do both IC3 and regular Ni-Mh cells. The regular Ni-Mh cells simply
    take hours to charge up however.
    I wouldn't believe so in real life. My FujiFilm 1600mAh pairs lasted
    significantly shorter runtimes in my digital camera than the IC3s at
    full 15 minute charge. I would believe that they've got a fuller charge
    than 75% (about the same on the 2100mAh IC3s as 1600mAh) because they
    really last a long time here.

    Also, the charging circuit is cut after the batteries are 'full' - no
    stand-by charging at all on these batteries - just charge to full and
    stop due to the internal pressure release trigger (ie. a pressure
    'switch' cuts off the power to charge these batteries inside each IC3


    In any case, a few minutes of rapid charging of an IC3 battery will
    give you enough to go out the door and take dozens of pictures since it
    juices up faster.
    www.fatwallet.com/forums/ -> hot deals for the Ni-Mh threads. Often
    see even better deals here if you don't mind slower.
