A perfect combo!! :D

I recently purchased both of these, and I'm very pleased with them. One to charge and the other to test the capacity of alkaline, lithium, as well as NiMH rechargeable batteries. I already pulled out several alkaline batteries that I had placed in the "to be recycled" ziplock bag thinking they were completely dead. The tester showed 80% capacity in one of the saved batteries! I included my old iPod in the photo just to show you the dimensions of the products. I just put ZTS Tester inside the La Crosse bag so they'll always go together. The size of these should be perfect for traveling as well as for home use...

I have an 8 cell Maha charger now but was looking into this same La Crosse for more portability. Amazon has it now for $40, free shipping at the moment. Thanks for the pic with size perspective!

I'll eventually get a Maha charger, too, when the next version comes out. For now and for my purposes I decided that the La Crosse is more suitable. Just placed more Eneloops on order from Amazon.com....:D

I use the Eneloop + BC900 combo too. Works great!

However, the bag that comes with the BC900 is quite large and silly. Like I'm ever going to walk around with the charger around my neck or shoulder :)

The bag is a cheap kind, but it can be of use for traveling or in-home storage.
