The charger on the left is one I bought more recently when I decided to make a concerted effort to use rechargeables wherever possible. One selling point was that it could charge irregular numbers of batteries rather than the one on the right insisting on pairs (and can only do a pair of AAAs at a time). My question is about the power capabilities of these two chargers and I guess about NiMH in general. I'm guessing by the fact that neither charger mentions a total battery capacity like my AA/AAA's do (e.g. 1100mA or 2800mA), that the figures these chargers mention are about charging rate rather than a total capacity battery they can charge? Would I also be correct in thinking that the charger on the right is better suited to AAs than the one on the left, ie. it can charge them faster?
