New NiMH Charger Juices Up Batteries in Just 15 Minutes

Toss-out batteries seem like one of the more archaic ideas I can think of, and even recycling disposable batteries is pretty cumbersome. Though they've been around for a while, as battery technology steps up, rechargeables will become the norm. Even with mandatory take-back programs like the one starting in the EU, won’t it just make more sense to recharge instead? A Chinese maker, GP Batteries, has just released a new line of chargers for their nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries that juices them up in just 15 minutes. The Powerbank V800C can charge AA or AAAs and has a digital timer that shows charge time. According to CNET, the new charger goes for $47.65.
