Found new 750mAH AAA Rechargables and a 1 Hour Charger

I went to Target today to get Rechargable AAA batteries for my 2 Mini Z's I got in mail yesterday. Target (In WA State anyways) has new Energizer AAA 750mAH Rechargable batteries. They run $13 for 4. But that is the highest mAH for AAA I've seen so far. The AA Energizer's, for any of the Micro owners, run at 1700mAH.
The batteries are NiMH.

I also purchased a Rayovac charger that only takes 1 hour to charge 4 AA, 4 AAA or 2 9 volts. It runs $30 and comes with AC adapter and a Car cigarette lighter adapter too. It also comes with 2 Rayovac 1600mAH AA batteries. All in all, I spent $80 and got 16 AAA batteries and a 1 hour charger. The charger charges BOTH NiCD and NiMH.

I have charged all 4 sets and it works great!

If anyone knows of a higher mAH battery, let me know!
Big things come in small packages!

Kewl. The only ones that they sell here on the Big Island in Hawaii are the 700maH. I've checked!!!

I picked up the RAYOVAC charger last night and it is great. Requires no skill other than to put the cells in the right way round - if you get it wrong it flashes at you.

Sadly in Australia it is only available through **** Smith (similar to Tandy / Radio Shack) and comes without the car lead. The price is also around US$45 (AU$90).

Charged about 20 cells last night. Just plug them in and come back when the lights go out. Too easy.

If you are looking for NiMH cells in OZ Jaycar seems to be the cheapest with 650 NiMH AAA's going for around AU$3.50 (US$1.75) a cell for the noname cells. These can be fast charged at upto around 1 amp (45 minutes). They get hot but don't seem to mind.
