It's a common dumb charger, put batteries in and it will try to charge them. I have 3 or 4 of them, so I can confirm they work fine. Good/great chargers have lots of features such as overheat protection, discharge, refresh, voltage monitoring, the ability to charge NiMH, NiCD, even Li-Ion etc.
Look at the LaCrosse for a good AA/AAA charger.. look at the Intellicharge i4 v2 for a good all around charger that can do nearly every battery out there.

There has been a LOT of good advice on here I advise anyone not familiar with these type batteries to read. I've spent loads of money over the years on different rechargeable batteries and I can give a huge history on it, I don't claim to be an expert, just another one of the masses that has "been there done that". In the end what I wrote in my first statement is my advice. Please take it or disregard it as you see fit.
If you're asking about what I've read pro photographers use, then YES, you'll spend at least $100 to get started with a good charger or 2 at $30 to $40 each and you'll be spending $3 to $4 per battery... but when your job depends on it, spend the $ or go home.

Now they have lowered their ebay price to $14.99 - that's why they ended this one. Still over 1,500 available on ebay for $5 more!

|gabe.college09||I bought these last time they were this cheap...the batteries seemed to have leaked in the packaging and have less capacity than advertised. Plus, the charger itself doesn't seem to work. All in all, AVOID!|

battery NOT Lsd = crap
non-LSD batteries will pretty much last only 2 days and it will require charging again. basically, you'll be required to take them out, charge them (for few hours), then put them back in electronics every other day.
not ideal for anything. complete crap.

The only thing these batteries seem to have going for them is the fact that they "contain no harmful contents".
So unless you're an enviro-nazi this is not a good deal.
If you're new to rechargeable batteries spend 10 to 20 minutes goggling the concept. Unless you're a professional photographer burning through AA's everyday in flashes (etc) there's very little purpose to standard NiMH's... stick with the eneloops, they give you the best of both worlds, low discharge and rechargeable.
Because i've been here and seen this argument before:
If you are a pro photographer or find yourself burning through several AA's a day, the best thing you can do is purchase the BEST NiMH's you can find, meaning the highest capacity and a GOOD quality charger like a LaCrosse. Be sure to buy enough to get you through a full day and then some.
