    They did not test the MH-C9000, as they didnt need the analysis features.

    The charge completion tests over at Candlepower forums show that the MH-C9000 does provide an even more complete charge than the MH-C401FS. In fact, the MH-C9000 provides the second best charge of all chargers tested. The only charger to out-perform the MH-C9000 is a $600 German unit!

    I'd have to agree. The C9000 a beast for rechargeable batts. Brought back to life a long dead set of Energizers and Uniross AAs.

    Any chance of including the C9000 charger?

    As others have already stated, it's the best charger out there.

    I am interested in 3 packs of imedion AA.

    If it turns out that AAA size can also be included then I will order 2 packs of imedion AAA.

    Thanks.

    hey mate i still need to figure out if i need a new charger. i have one of the enigiser NIMH/NICD ones and dont want to spend $80 on a new charger if these batteries use a different charger.

    does anyone know?

    ok just saw a reply a few up thanks jeffservaas

    i'll take 2 packs, also if there is going to be a group buy for that C9000 charger i'll take one of those as well.

    alright since you can get a charger might as well make it 4 packs so its worth while lol.

    hope a heap of people buy the charger and we can get a discount on that as well :)

    Im In!

    Ok, please put me down for:

    1 x C9000 Charger

    3 x 4 pack Imedions

    I know you said in the OP to make it more than 2-3 but at that amount it comes to around $150 + shipping just going by the standard prices @ protog. If we get a discount that brings it down further, I'll be happy to change the amount of batteries to round my order out to $150.

    Finally gonna get some decent batteries + charger!

    Cheers, as I said I've been up this morning and checking out the prices e.t.c I've updated my last post with my request, thanks for the info anyway, I was super tired last night and thought I'd best leave reasoning (and purchases) till this morning!

    I wasn't fast enough not to be quoted tho :p

    since your buying a charger i think its fair enough. it is a decent investment on batteries - one which will set you up for a long time :thumbup:

    Cheers, but like I said, if the price drops enough, I'll add another set of AA's to make up the difference, it all depends on discount!

    no im saying dont feel pressured to buy more batteries if you really dont need them - your contribution is appreciated since your buying a charger :) obviously if it does end up a lot cheaper and you want more, thats fine too

    hmm i was under the assumption we were getting these from an overseas supplier?

    wasn't the original link to a site selling them as 4 packs for $10 US?

    if there going to be roughly $20 a 4 pack, + the $90 charger i dont think im gonna be able to get 4 packs.

    all going to be up to what deal you work out so keep us updated.

    we will work out which is cheaper - also note that shipping from the US supplier will be much more expensive.

    the OP is always being updated - keep reading it. after the list is made, then we can start doing final confirmation - i suppose its just a tentative list atm
