Has anyone heard of / used? It looks like a decently cheap 30 Minute charger now that the Duracell CEF90NC is no longer in production: http://www.tenergybattery.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=67&category_id=15&manufacturer_id=0&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=27

They also make SICK LiPo / LiFe chargers: http://www.tenergybattery.com/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse&category_id=17&Itemid=27

And a meter for charging packs: http://www.tenergybattery.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=73&category_id=16&manufacturer_id=0&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=27

Anyone have any experience with these? They're about $35 street from what I've seen: http://battery-superstore.com/T8000-30Minute-Fast-Charger-with-4/M/B000TA7AWC.htm

EDIT: I think this is the (earlier, fanless) Duracell 30-minute charger (for $25 WITH 4x 900MaH AAAs): http://www.onlybatteries.com/showitem.asp?ItemID=13272.68&cat1=28&uid=1124

Another "30 minute" charger for $34 with 4xAAA: http://www.onlybatteries.com/showitem.asp?ItemID=15239.44&cat1=28&uid=2018

Here is the Duracell 15-minute charger: http://www.techforless.com/cgi-bin/tech4less/CEF15NC?mv_pc=google_base&tts=20100226023700
And the newer model: http://www.techforless.com/cgi-bin/tech4less/CH15MNCP4

Looks like Rayovac also made the fan-equipped charger that is a Duracell rebrand, but they now make a 15-minute charger: http://www.apluswhs.com/products/15-minute-mah-i-c-rechargeable-nimh-batteries/

Could we possibly make this into a list of all the chargers available / commonly-used? We just need to put the Maha and LaCrosse in here.

Just an update, I now own a 15 minute charger from Meijer and it works well. It has a fan and came with 4x2500MaH AA for $30. The AAs don't work in my TX though, going to try refreshing them on my C9000. I also own the Duracell 15 minute charger with fan and the Duracell Rapid Charger (older model) with no fan. I haven't tested these extensively yet. The Meijer 15 minute charger worked well with my Intellect 750MaH batteries and they had excellent runtime. The Meijer charger can charge AAs at 7 amps each! I also like the Meijer charger because it has four independent channels. I'll post more once my Fluke 15B meter comes and I can properly test all of these.
