      Worked great on Energizer NiMH Batteries, but when I inserted others, the green light flash rapidly, and while I'm not sure what that means, am pretty sure that they are not being charged. Any explanation, as it doesn't mention flashing lights in the user's manual?

      I bought this charger and didn't use it for couple weeks; when I did attempt to use it, it did not work. Of course by then I had thrown away the receipt. Don't bother buying this charger, it it not a good value when you have to buy something more than once! I had to revert back to the old charger and wait instead of being able to charge 8 at a time.

      Great product with room for improvement

      By EnergizedPhotographer

      from Yardley, PA

      Comments about Energizer® AA and AAA Rechargeable Battery Charger (CHVCWB-2):

      I'm a professional photographer and I run through my rechargeable batteries quickly. I purchased this charger to recharge my Energizer 2300 mAh rechargeable batteries. It does a great job of charging my batteries in a reasonably short period of time. My bag is usually packed tight though and I just wished the metal prongs that plug into the wall folded away for a better fit in my bag and less potential to scratch valuable items. That would make this product perfect for me. Otherwise, I love it.

      Comments about Energizer® AA and AAA Rechargeable Battery Charger (CHVCWB-2):

      Flashes green with several pairs of batteries. None of "Energizer's" solutions apply to these batteries (they are new, of same brand, same specs etc). Had a similar problem with other batteries.

      Energizer Value Charger is No Value

      By DisgustedinPA

      from State College

      Comments about Energizer® AA and AAA Rechargeable Battery Charger (CHVCWB-2):

      The Energizer Value Charger is No Value based on my personal experience. The batteries that came with the charger worked the first time they were charged, but after only a couple of very brief recharged usage times, the "Value" Charger would not recharge the batteries at all. The red light would come on when the batteries were inserted. After a while, the green light would come on, but when the batteries were removed for usage, they were not charged. I have used Energizer products for many years. I am very disappointed with this product and surprised that Energizer would sell it on the market. What has happened to the concept of the "Energizer Bunny"?

      only lasted a few months.....

      from California

      Comments about Energizer® AA and AAA Rechargeable Battery Charger (CHVCWB-2):

      I bought this a few months ago to use on my digital camera. I didn't use it that much either since I don't take many pictures and now when I put the batteries in the light goes from red to green in approximately 1 second intervals as does the fan. I was awesome while it lasted unfortunately didn't last very long.......

      Calling customer service gets results

      By MGK13

      from Iowa

      Comments about Energizer® AA and AAA Rechargeable Battery Charger (CHVCWB-2):

      We started using this charger and a "Smart Charger" about six months ago. The "Smart Charger" stopped working after about three or four uses and we stuck it in a drawer out of frustration--no original packaging so thought we were out of luck. Then yesterday this "Value Charger" started flashing red instead of charging. A Google search turned up many complaints about this problem on this page. Each one was answered by Energizer with a phone number to call for help. I called this morning and spoke with a very friendly and patient representative, who talked me through cleaning the terminals with a pencil eraser. Set that charger back in the outlet and it stayed on red, presumably charging. We moved on to the other charger and when I described the problem (flashed "8 hours" and then went dead) she immediately said it was defective. She took my address and is sending a prepaid mailing label so I can send it in for repair or replacement. This very long comment is all to say that while I was frustrated initially with the defective performance of both chargers, I was very pleased with the customer service response. Don't hesitate to call the number given. It really works.

      Not charging properly

      By GPOOLE

      from Vernon, BC Canada

      Comments about Energizer® AA and AAA Rechargeable Battery Charger (CHVCWB-2):

      I just purchased this product today and started charging the four 1300 Ma batteries just before noon. The manual states that it should take 5 hours to charge the batteries. It is still charging after 7 hours . I would accept a half hour discrepancy but after reading all of the other poor reviews about how short lived the chargers life was and the similarly poor response from your company to each complaint I have decided to return this item and get my money back. I have checked the reviews for Duracell and they are much better.

      from Paraguay

      Comments about Energizer® AA and AAA Rechargeable Battery Charger (CHVCWB-2):

      Nice product, I charged many times my batteries in only 20 minutes. I have one question because my wall transformer exploded, do you sell this transformer separately from the entire package of the rapid charger? Now I'm using my car transformer instead of the wall, but I want to buy a replace for my wall transformer.. I have not found yet an universal charger that outputs 16v and 2.5A. Thanks

      My battery charger just flashes red. I've had the rechargeable batteries in the recharger for two days. And all it does is flash red. The batteries are dead. Not charged up at all. I will not be buying this product again.

      Very Fussy About Batteries Used

      By mykecusa

      from california

      Comments about Energizer® AA and AAA Rechargeable Battery Charger (CHVCWB-2):

      With new Energizer batteries this unit works just fine. With my older Energizer batteries and other brand batteries it is a dud. I compare results with the older Racovac 15 minute charger for charging IC3 batteries. That unit was A+ until the AC charging unit failed. Its negative was it needed IC3 batteries. This Energizer unit needs new Energizer batteries. Strikes me as a trade off. As noted I must keep it supplied with new Energizer batteries, but not all Energizer Ni-MH batteries work either (though they do work in the 8 hour chargers I have). I keep this in my car with (8) AA and (4) AAA batteries for a reasonably quick (less than 30 minutes) charge of a set of batteries. This works for me.

      i received the charger, opened it, immediately started charging the 4 batteries it came with, and it took more than 7 hours to finish charging, even though it said in the paper the charger came with that it is supposed to take around 5 hours

      from UK

      Comments about Energizer® AA and AAA Rechargeable Battery Charger (CHVCWB-2):

      I am not too sure why you say the red flashing light is an uncommon issue - I and some of my friends have the same issue - not happy and neither are my kids for not having them charged when required. Please do not refer me to customer services - I just want a replacement or an answer on why it is happening

      By IvorD

      from Los Altos, CA

      Comments about Energizer® AA and AAA Rechargeable Battery Charger (CHVCWB-2):

      Thought this was a great product for the first few weeks when I used it repeatedly for a surveillance camera, charging batteries while on my way to the location. Didn't use it for a month or so then today the green light comes on and stays on even with discharged (or no) batteries in it. Light never goes red. Fan doesn't start. Useless. Can't find the receipt now either. Sigh.

      from connecticut

      Comments about Energizer® AA and AAA Rechargeable Battery Charger (CHVCWB-2):

      Model: CHVCM no additional mod #s my manual says shut-off at 11 hrs, I see the newer models say auto shutoff. I never know when its done. I guess all charge times are consistent over these models. The charge times are long. The unit can fall from the wall outlet, its heavy. I enjoy the battery life once charged. But, using a meter they never seem to read 1.5v, always lower, about 1.35 or so. Dont understand that and it is not explained in the manual.

      Comments about Energizer® AA and AAA Rechargeable Battery Charger (CHVCWB-2):

      As soon as I got this product it would not charge. I had the recommended batteries so I didn't think it was that replaced them with new batteries (recommended and another brand just in case) but to no avail! I'm going to have to return this.. And apparently a LOT of people agree with me.

      I bought this and the AA batteries do not even stay in the holder. The AAA do very well but every time I put in AA they fall out. I have to have something up against it to hold it into place so they charge. I've even bought different batteries and they fall out too.

      Terrible Product

      By Disgruntled

      from Tr--State Area

      Comments about Energizer® AA and AAA Rechargeable Battery Charger (CHVCWB-2):

      Bought the rapid charger as a solution to all my AA needs. It worked ok for the first few charges and then it wouldn't charge any more. At first I thought it was the batteries, but no, any series of similar batteries won't charge i get alternate green and red flashing lights. The charger is similar to other manufacturers rapid chargers and cost more, I think I will get a different one, while i wait for a replacement.

      Portable Chargers

      By ITGODNME

      from Chicago, Il

      Comments about Energizer® AA and AAA Rechargeable Battery Charger (CHVCWB-2):

      I have purchased several energizer chargers in the past that resulted in me buying more than one of the same version of the product thinking I just got a bad one, I felt it was easier to just purchase another then dealing with the hassle of returning it because I never keep up with receipts. I have purchased on different occasions different versions of energizer portable chargers that failed which should have been my indicator not to purchase anymore :(. Being optimistic and regardless of my past disappointment with past energizer products I decided to give energizer another try so I purchased my final and probably last energizer charger. I purchased the portable energizer Iphone charger and within the 1st week it gives an indicator that it is charging until a pop-up state that this device is not supported..... I don't have the receipt or packaging so I can't go back to the store. Is there something I can do to resolve this issue or should I just count this as another lost.

      from St. Louis

      Comments about Energizer® AA and AAA Rechargeable Battery Charger (CHVCWB-2):

      Already had to return several batteries that wouldn't charge and now this charger doesn't even charge the batteries that came with it. You get nothing but constant red flashing light meaning it's not working when using only batteries that are made for this device. Funny thing it I have an old Rayovak charger that charges ANY rechargeable batteries. I've always been a fan of energizer, but after all this aggravation, I'll never buy another energizer product.

      By Ken19

      from atlanta

      Comments about Energizer® AA and AAA Rechargeable Battery Charger (CHVCWB-2):

      I bought the product less than a year ago. Last night i was using the batteries that came with the product, in my flash for my photo shoot. I paused to recharge the batteries. The charger started up as always. after about 15 minutes I removed the batteries and resumed shooting. the batteries hadnt charged much at all. The LED on the charger stays green. i bought more of the same Energizer rechargeable batteries and the charger still never comes to life and the LED is always green. I don't have the packaging or the receipt anymore so as far as i know im stuck with a paperweight. Very disappointed after only a few months off non continuous use.
