Enjoy Simple Charging with the Energizer Compact Charger

5:16 PM


What do you get when you combine effective charging with the most simple, small, and compact charger on the market?  Probably something like the Energizer Compact Charger.  As an online advocate for Energizer, I got to try out this no-frills little charger for my rechargeable batteries.

It fits in the palm of my hand when not in use, which makes it perfect to toss into my travel bag or flashlight drawer.  When charging, it holds 2 or 4 AA or AAA batteries.  Just pop them in, watch for the indicator light to show fully charged, and pop them out!  There is no need for a separate cord for this charger -- just plug it into the wall and charge!

This dummy-proof charger gets most batteries charged in as little as 2 hours, and comes with some AA rechargeables to get your started.  Another great feature is that it's Energy Star compliant!  That's pretty green :)

Wanna win?  We have one of these to give away to a lucky reader.  To enter, just leave a comment on this post with how you would use the charger.  You have until August 17th, 2009 at 11:59 pm CST to get your entry in.  One entry per person, please.  

Giveaways are subject to complete site rules. (Be sure to give us a way to reach you if you win, and remember that we will never use your email or contact info for anything other than to send your prize.) Good luck, and be sure to check out all of our other giveways!

*As an online advocate for Energizer, I will happily be sharing many more exciting product offerings designed to help you and your family save some cash and help the planet! Have a question about rechargeable batteries and how to make them work for your family? Email me!

  79. AA/AAA batteries are the most used sizes in our household - from clocks to remotes. And we have an ideal outlet location for a charger... right above the drawer we currently store spare batteries! And not only would this save money, it would be eco-friendly - now that's what I'm talking about! ;)
