No need for their charger. In fact, there are many chargers that are much better, such as those made by Maha.

Interesting, I never knew that. Can you use a faster charger too?

When I was looking around last year, I often saw the Maha mh-c801D charger recomended so I bought one along with several packs of Eneloops from Thomsas Distributing and I have been very happy with it. Handles 8 batteries at a time, is intelligent enough to not cook the batteries and it has a conditioning mode where it fully drains then recharges the batteries.

Looks good, £60 here in the UK.

I use the MHC9000 from Maha, great charger. You can charge/discharge/refre​sh/etc.. each battery individually at all sorts of different rates. Unlike most 4 battery chargers that simply charge 2 cells at a time at a specific rate.

Just remember that the slower the better. Quicker the charge, the more heat is generated and lowers the life of the battery. I always charge/discharge at the lowest rate if I don't need the batteries asap.

I have 2 of these and have used them with eneloops for quite a while now. I am very happy with them.

Maha C-9000 is pretty much the best charger on the market. I highly recommend it!

Slightly off topic: I dont know how quickly you want to get the Eneloops but if you can hold off until December Sanyo will be selling higher capacity/more charging cycle XX eneloops.

fewer cycles for XX
old ones are(as I recall) 1000 cycles
new ones are 500 cycles
the Tones are the ones with 500 more cycles

if you were to charge those batteries twice a week, you'll be throwing them out in 5 years (as opposed to 10 with the old ones) - I doubt they'll really produce at top level for that time and you'll be replacing them long before that

Kinda off topic, But I work for sanyo solar and never realized how popular the enloops are. Maybe I should try some out from work cause they were giving a bunch of AA enloops away at work the other day.
