6988 Smart Charger
May 25, 2009
I bought a 6988 almost 2 years ago to save money on batteries as well as to get a little more green. With 3 kids, multiple game systems, digital cameras, multiple mp3 players, small flashlights and toys, we were going through dozens of AA and AAA batteries. They were expensive and not the cleanest things to throw away. I had rechargeable batteries for the camera, but was getting less than a year out of a set. The fast chargers were getting them too hot, and would not maintain the charge. I started looking for a charger that would be kinder to the batteries, charge more than 4 batteries, and would maintain them in a charged state even if they had to sit for a few weeks.
Research led me to a Smart Charger. I picked the 6988. It works as advertised. I am now buying a second with 20 more batteries. I have had no failures, just lots more stuff to put them in. My guess is that the current one has paid for itself several times over. It even recovered the old camera batteries.
