Works For Me Wednesday



Batteries are expensive. In our family we are always using batteries. The boy's use them for everything from flashlights to inventions.




So instead of buying AA's all the time, my parents bought an Energizer 15 minute charger. The charger fits both AAA and AA, four at a time. And, it's great for when you need batteries fast! All you need is the charger, and 4 or so rechargeable batteries, depending on how many you use at a time. I use them for my camera, and they work great! So invest in one of these today. It's worth it! And it Works for Me. Oh, and it says I posted this on Tuesday, but I really posted it today (Wednesday).

Does it really charge in 15 minutes? I have one (older one) and it takes hours. Maybe it is time to update.

Is my charger defective? My batteries lose their charge so fast I'm finding I have had to charge them daily. I bought new batteries thinking they were the problem, but they too have started losing their charge really fast after only a couple of charge times.

I did some research and found you do have to replace the batteries after a time, but this is very quick. So I'm thinking there must be something wrong. If not, then it isn't very cost effective for me to have to replace the rechargeable batteries so quickly.

I love my rechargeable batteries! Before that, I went through 18 store brand batteries in one week at Colonial Williamsburg -- now I can go for a hundred pictures or more without changing them!

But a 15-minute charger sounds incredible! Thanks for the heads-up!

Yours in Christ,
