Ive seen the Watson brand bundled with a canon speed light from bhphoto, and I was wondering if this is a good brand, or can someone recommend a brand? I've read that the cheap ones don't charge batteries to their full capacity.

Maha PowerEx MH‑C800S or similar.

It lets you charge single or paired batteries. It also lets you charge the battery quickly or recondition them. In other words, it drains the battery completely and charges them full again.

I use this 16-bay Titanium Innovations battery charger. Charges 1 to 16 batteries, also has a discharge cycle option: http://www.amazon.com …s-MD-1600L/dp/B005UNPM3M/ (external link)

I've been using a La Cross Technology BC-700 (external link) for several years now and love it.... it does it all!

I'm very happy with Maha's MH-C800S charger. About the only improvement I could ask for is if they went with a stackable design in some way with an optional modular power supply so I could buy one external power brick and add charge bays to my setup easily.

+3 This is probably the most economical, portable, yet highly reliable and effective charger you can find.

Thanks for the input. I'll have to compare the batteries. I hear good things about eneloop.
Up until now I've just used energizer and rayovac nimh and the chargers that come with them.
