Down the road I might pick up another two 8-cell smart chargers so that I can charge everything at once.

Reconditioning Old Batteries

In order to recondition my older batteries, I also picked up a AA battery Charger-Analyzer.

A charger-analyzer is even a little more sophisticated than a standard smart charger (which is still way better than a run-of-the-mill big box store charger).

This particular model has a “break in” mode which is designed to chemically reactivate batteries that have been stored for a long period of time and a “refresh and analyze” mode that reconditions poorly performing batteries or batteries that have been stored from 2 weeks to 3 months.

Those Sanyo Eneloop XX batteries are expensive, so I figure it will pay to take care of them in the long run.
