I have a BC-9009, but often need to charge more than 4 batteries at a time in quick fashion, so I ordered this to complement the older charger. I'm really happy with the older one and the "charge test" can find faulty batteries. I have a bunch of Sony 'cycle energy' LSD batteries that have gone bad.
For some reason, mine (this model) seems to require that I push the buttons a bit too firmly for my liking. Not really a dealbreaker, just annoying. It's great otherwise.
Btw on this site it says "the charger automatically defaults to 200ma charge giving you the most out of your battery's life." I have to disagree with that. Folks at cpf insist that between .5 to 1 times the capacity (in mAh) is the best setting, for all purposes including maximizing the battery's life.
Yes, I found all of that same information myself, however, Casa is under no obligation to include those items if they are not listed on the product description page. I think that stuff is all included myself...but there is no way for anyone to be sure without calling to ask, or just ordering and hoping for the best.
I (OP) ordered this last night, it has already shipped and is slated to be delivered tomorrow (11/7 WOW for fast 2 day shipping!). I will happily confirm for you tomorrow that all of the discussed accessories are included with this deal.
So, to confirm, the charger itself is exactly the same?
Extremely similar but not exactly the same. The BC-1000 has an additional circuit to detect overheating and shut itself off until it cools. From what I understand, none of the previous models had that.
I've wanted one of these chargers, but didn't want to pay extra versus the BC-700 just to get their batteries. This makes the prices virtually identical. Now I can get some Sanyo Eneloops to complete my ultimate rechargeable set, and not have to deal with the 'dumb' charger that Sanyo puts in their Power Pack!
