It is a good charger, but it will not charge a completely drained battery. You'll need a less sophisticated charger to do that work, probably for a couple of minutes, before you can put the battery into the LaCrosse charger.

I guess the reason is that a Lacrosse charger does not charge a battery that it cannot recognize as a valid rechargeable battery. There should be a function for this kind of forced recharge, but no, there isn't.

Ok charger - nothing special about it. Only good for being able to change one battery at a time (most chargers charge at least two) and set charge rate.

Does not revive batteries at all. If battery charge falls very low it shows NULL and does not want to charge it - have to use by old Radioshack one.

At $38 it's not a deal. It retail for $40 everywhere.

I actually have this charger and it's fine. It's not as magnificent as some people make it out to be, my batteries still die, a lot of them still seem to have short lives. The refresh function I end up having to do EVERYTIME and it takes forever, so.

Buy better batteries. (Try Eneloop, they're much more convenient than most)

Seriously, unless you're constantly charging at two amps, it's probably not the charger.

Unless you mean that your ni-mh batteries die after a couple weeks of light use, in which case you don't understand the particular unpleasantness of traditional ni-mh batteries habit to self-discharge (and just how bad it can be).

This is supposed to be an awesome charger along with Eneloops.
