    Awesome. the charger for my nimh batteries decided to die a few days ago. These would make a perfect replacement

    This one's going to be big I guess... I have some high hopes for a few of these things, see those batteries would be excellent considering my 2700mah jessops are starting to fight a losing battle against the obscene amount of photography I've had to do lately, apparently they get through the fashion show but by the time you leave the backstage they're finished...
