  • Renew and Reuse your Renewal brand charger!

    I have a Rayovac charging station similar to that, but designed slightly different. It is not branded Renewal. It does not have any restrictions in place to prevent you from putting different batteries in it. In fact on the back it says that it is for recharging Rechargeable Alkalines, NiMH, and NiCd batteries. I'm not sure how it knows which voltage to use since NiMH batteries are lower voltage. But it does work for recharging grey Rayovac branded batteries that are not marked rechargeable. For grins, I tried a Zinc Chloride "Heavy Duty" battery and it just got hot and melted the plastic label on the battery.
