Holiday Gift Guide | Energizer Recharge Smart Charger Review

We go through a lot of batteries in our home so it makes sense for us to use rechargeable batteries whenever possible. My favorite brand of batteries is made by Energizer® so I was very excited to try the Recharge Smart™ Charger.

This Energy Star-certified reusable battery charging system is very easy to use by simply plugging the Recharge Smart™ Charger into an electrical outlet. I like that it has a large LCD screen which displays the charging status and it even has a helpful “countdown clock” and “fuel gauge.” Particularly useful is the bad battery alert so I will know if a battery that I am trying to charge no longer works.

I am able to charge up to four AA or AAA NIMH rechargeable batteries and because it charges at a steady rate it maximizes the number of life cycles giving me the best performance and value available.

The Energizer® Recharge Smart™ Charger is very convenient to use and this system is small enough that we can pack it in our suitcase to use with our children’s portable games and electronics while on vacation.

I have been very pleased with the performance of this product and the batteries have a long life before needing to be recharged especially in those game systems that rapidly drain regular batteries. I definitely plan to have enough Energizer® Recharge® batteries charged for the holidays!

The Energizer® Recharge system includes several options such as the Recharge Smart™ Charger ($19.99), Universal Charger ($29.99) and the Recharge® Rapid Charger ($32.99).
