PC Treasures Leads the (Re)ChargeOXFORD, Mich., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time for Earth Day, PC Treasures, in partnership with Digital Works Australia Pty. Ltd., is very pleased to introduce to North American consumers the ReZap Battery Engineer, an innovative, exciting and earth-friendly battery recharger that adds life to all sizes of standard batteries. Designed and manufactured by Digital Works, the Battery Engineer utilizes intelligent microprocessors and software that regulate the charging process allowing consumers to safely recharge their standard, previously non-rechargeable batteries up to 10 times. In addition to charging standard batteries, the Battery Engineer also charges rechargeable batteries and includes a battery tester to inform the consumer of the charge level of any battery. The sophisticated design makes charging batteries foolproof since up to four multiple-sized batteries (AAAA, AAA, AA, C, D, 9 Volt, and lantern batteries), can be charged simultaneously. It is the first charger of its kind to fully and automatically detect the different types of batteries that have been inserted into it and proceed to use the correct charging algorithm to handle the custom recharge of each battery individually. No buttons or switches to set, thereby eliminating charging errors. Brian Austin, the President of PC Treasures states, "Most people are surprised to learn that they can recharge standard alkaline batteries. With the ReZap Battery Engineer, not only can you recharge them, but you can do so in an entirely safe manner. The Battery Engineer is a great way to help the environment and save a great deal of money on reduced battery purchases." PC Treasures is introducing the Battery Engineer to North American retailers and it will be available in May 2010 for a suggested retail-selling price of $59.95.

This is a cool device not to mention useful device. I wonder when they are going to release Li-ION conditioners for the batteries in smart devices. I mean you can go pay a fee to have a battery reconditioned (or fully discharged, recharged and conditioned) at most cellular retail locations. I have never seen devices for this of a home usage type, which really makes no sense to me today. Most people have quite a few rechargeable battery powered (cell phones, media players, laptops etc) devices and it would seem to me a good thing to have in a home. This is also not to mention standard (A,AA,AAA etc) rechargeable used in cameras and anything else that uses standard battery sized units to like this device.

Sounds cool but im wonderin
It'll prolly take forever to charge "standard" batteries tho, and will it drive up the cost of "standard" battereis??
Most new chargers now do some check to make sure it is a rechargeable in it, but older battery chargers will charge regular batteries just fine. I used to do it all the time.
Duracell and Energizer people are gonna howl about this one. But I'll buy it for sure.
Lots of money saved over time. As long as it keeps working,.............
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Yeah, And I had a sighting of MAN-BEAR-PIG !!!:P
I have been using rechargeable for a long time now. If you don't live green then you are green!
This looks like a good all in one charger.To bad it doesn't do Lithium.
I had high hopes for this charger with all the claims that were made, but it is a bitter disappointment. It doesn’t work half the time and when it does, it only chargers a battery partially. I’ve tried all kinds of batteries, new and all with the same results.
