a Battery Charger

I got myself a Don-approved (or supposedly approved by Don) item - a Battery Charger. Why do I think that Don would approve this device? Simple. Don is into rechargeable batteries, and a device for using rechargeable batteries is of course an essential in moving towards rechargeable batteries.

Presenting my new Battery Charger:
Apple Battery Charger

The Apple Battery Charger comes with 6 low self-discharge rechargeable AA NiMH batteries (size: AA, 1900 mAh, 1.2V HR6).

The benefit of this Apple Battery Charger is the energy saving. Comparing to other battery chargers, when in standby, it uses only 30 milliwatts of power. It not just work with Apple-supplied NiMH batteries, but also works with batteries from other companies.

You needed an Apple-branded battery charger too?

For the energy efficiency. The upgrade is worth it.
It has been reported that the batteries included are the very well known Eneloop AA NiMH batteries (rebranded), which are preferred by photographers.
I bought Sony Super Quick Charger before, remember?
In short, it is to save money, not really "Apple".
