    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

anyone have experience with this particular charger ?http://www.batteryjunction.com/chwosmch12aa.html

Personally no, but some flashlight-geek forum I stumbled upon rates them highly (I never knew there was such a thing:confused: No joke, they spend as much on an LED penlight than we do on scanners) From what I can understand, there are now 5000mAh AA cells and rapid chargers out there from Sanyo that everyone is jumping on buying.:D

I hear ya. Those rapid chargers get HOT. that much heat cannot be good for the cells. There is a rechareable batt thread going on in the RR wasteland forum right now actually.

Actually, there have been several threads on both batteries and various chargers. One just a couple of days ago.

I don't recognize this particular charger, but I'd consider spending a few extra dollars on one of Maha's chargers. There are two nearly everyone on the board has sworn by. I have the C9000 and I love it. It can fairly rapidly charge batteries, or do a 3.5 day recycle of a battery.

Most reviews I've read on the radid chargers support DanTSX's comment that the heat doesn't do the batteries any good. In fact the life span is significantly reduced by them (nice marketing ploy to cell more batteries I guess, though on occasion I do like the 15 minute recharge).

Smart chargers are the best. More are coming on the market every day. As far as 5000mAH cell, the largest capacity I have seen in AA cells is 2850, most are in the 2400-2850 range that I have seen. There are C and D cells which have 5000, but I have yet to see any AA cells with that capacity. Where have you found 5000mAH AA cells?
