I have a charger that holds 4 dboule or triple A batteries. Can I recharge 3 at the same time or do I have to recharge them in groups of 2? I think i remember reading somewhere that you have to charge even numbers only but I threw out the package these came in. THey are energizer brand..... (silver with green trim)

Stay away from the super quick charging chargers. Sure they charge batteries in 15mins but they also blow up pretty easily. I had one for 4 months and it made a loud "pop" and smelled funny and stopped working. I replaced it under warranty and in less than a month of using it maybe once a week it "popped" as well.

I on the other hand have never had a problem with the really quick chargers. Regardless, yes, you do have to recharge them in groups of two.

does anyone else find that with rechargables, whether you're using them or not (after they've been charged), they all lose their charge at the exact same time?

ie: if i charge a four-pack of batteries and use two in my camera, when the two in use run dry and i go to replace them, the two charged-and-unused pair has also run dry.

what gives?!
