As you know, I was truly lucky and honored to represent Energzier as a Smart ChargHer at BlogHer. In addition to receiving a very generous sponsorship, of the perks was that I received a Energizer Recharge Smart Charger.  I am kind of ashamed to admit that until receiving it, we relied totally on disposable batteries. And a lot of them. I have to tell you, I feel a lot better about the idea of powering my little ones’ toys, my big one (husband’s) electronic gadget toys and other household necessities with rechargeable batteries. I love that after making the switch we won’t use and toss batteries any more.

Energizer Recharge Smart Charger

But, the Energizer Recharge Smart Charger isn’t your average battery charger. Here are a few of the features that set it apart:

  • Countdown timer shows how long until batteries are charged
  • Battery Fuel Guage shows charge status
  • Bad Battery Alert detects alerts and shuts off charging when a  non-NiMH or old NiMH battery is inserted
  • Large visual display can be viewed from across the room
  • Charges 2 or 4 AA or AAA NiMH rechargeable batteries
  • Charges batteries at a safe, steady rate which improves the    long-term health of the NiMH battery
  • For approximate charge times, download the user manual.
  • Energy Star® certified

Win a Smart Charger & a $15 Target Gift Card!

If you have a blog, can get your very own Energizer Recharge Smart Charger AND a $15 Target Gift Card to stock up on Energizer Rechargeable Batteries (or back to school supplies!) for a $35 total value. Interested? Of course you are!

    I work at a preschool, we use AA batteries like they are going out of style. It would really help our budget to use rechargeable batteries and know when they will be ready!!

    These would make my life soooo much easier. My husband is constantly running through batteries! It would be nice to just direct him to the charger.

    I cannot tell you how many double a batteries I go through in a month. My camera eats them like candy and everthing else we have seem to use this size also and I cannot keep enough of them in the house. What a great idea to have rechargeable ones- so much less waste!

    Please count me in!
