Subject: Re: Eveready 1850 NiMh
From: Mike Payson (mpayson_at_dawgdayz.com)

FYI, I picked up 4 of the Energizer 1850 MAh batteries, and a one hour charger
with both AC and DC power adapters at Sam's Club for $29.00. Most chargers I
priced were priced closer to $40, even for slower chargers. Of course, Sam's
club is a membership store, so unless you have a membership, you won't save
money.
