I have a large number of aging AA and AAA NiMH rechargeable batteries in regular use. I’ve been considering buying a “battery analyzer” to see if I some of the older ones can be refreshed or if it’s time to recycle and replace them. Most of my batteries are eneloops (Sanyo and Panasonic era) or AmazonBasics. They are going into camera flashes, flashlights, video game controllers, headphones, remotes, etc.
I’ve been using a pair of Panasonic BQ-CC17 chargers, which now refuse to charge some of the older batteries. I’ve been looking at the Powerex MH-C9000PRO, Powerex MH-C980 and the La Crosse BC1000 . Does anyone have experience with these analyzers?
Part of me thinks I should just recycle the cells when they stop recharging and spend the $50-80 on replacement batteries. Thoughts?
