Email from La Crosse about the Melt-down.

"Dear <Customer Name>,

Case Number: <Removed>
Please refer to this case in all future correspondence.

Regarding Model Number: BC900

With regard to issues of "melt down", this may be in regard to a recall of a very small number of units that were sold through one vendor over a period of a couple of months in late 2009, early 2010. The recall was for an AC adapter that did not fit certain requirement and was quickly addressed by us as a proactive measure.

While internet discussion forums and the like are a good resource to get others opinions on products, they also are generally marred by rumor and information that is not completely true. The BC-900 and 9009, as well as out other charging units have been in product by our company for nearly 10 years and have been very highly regarded in the industry. As always, if any signs of a flaw or failure occur, While unlikely to occur, we honor our units under the one year product warranty.

For efficient processing when responding to this e-mail please use your email program's "Reply" option to maintain the email thread. Please do not change the subject line of your email.

If you have not already done so, please provide your full name and contact information. This will enable us to serve you better and more efficiently.

What are some of the gateway pages?
Hi not sure... I was just googling for the coupon codes and located one code. The other one but be from where I found the code that links it to get the additional 5%. It was strange when I tried different codes it did work. But this last one the sharpshoot code I thought it added both codes in.

Okay I got it I think. I got to

It auto adds one of the code in there. Next I add in "SHOOTSMARTER" this will only give 5% code but when add in the 2nd one "SPCBNE05" this allow me to get an additional 5% for a total of 10%.

Let me know if it works or not, thanks.



1 major concern with this option to buy the BC-900 from Thomas Distributing:

2) the BC-900 has had a history of overheating and fires. This is why I prefer the BC-700 even though it does not have as many features as the BC-900. The BC-700 does everything I need, and I don't have to worry about risk of fire. I've been using mine for 6 years and no issues.

I paid $22 in Oct. 2010. Normally you'd think the price of the same electronics would fall over time.

Probably still the best bang for the buck charger out there. Been using them forever. Only negative is that when a cell is too depleted, it won't recognize it, and you have to charge it in a dumb charger first. There's a paper clip trick, but it would be nice if they just changed the firmware...

Not necessarily true. As better batteries have become more popular, the demand for good chargers has gone up. Increased demand = higher prices.

Great charger!! I already have two or else I'd jump on it.

I've traveled to Mexico, India, London with this charger and an arsenal of Eneloops and the combination has never let me down.

I am using the charger from the Sanyo Eneloop kit from costco. I know this is a better charger and it's very popular. but what does this do that the Sanyo can't? does it store more charge into the batteries? longer battery life? isn't it better to put $30 into more rechargeable batteries?
