Didn't see any photos of how anyone sets up their charging station so here is my charging station setup for my assortment of batteries. It includes chargers for my digital ELPHS, 5D Mark II, and 7D. I used to have my 20D and 30D chargers on there but they are now in my storage bag. I also have a MAHA AA/AAA battery charger/conditioner.

The actual charging station is the Belkin Compact Surge Protector. It works perfectly with the compact battery chargers Canon uses :)

Looks like you've got some mean voltage action going on there! :D Is that the large - can't recall the model number - AA battery charger in the back row from Thomas Distributing? - Stu

I did get it from Thomas Distributing a few years back. I can't recall if it's the large one but it can charge 8 AA or AAA or a combination. It also does battery conditioning and slow charging. It's the best charger out there:) Having 8 slots is perfect for charging batteries for my speedlites. It is the "MAHA MH-C801D Eight cell 1-hour aa/aaa battery charger"

The charger came with some free ipowerus. I also have some powerex's, energizers, rayovac's, and duracells. I had them already so I haven't needed to by any new ones.

Thats it :).

I was going to buy the Eneloops, but realized my current batteries have never let me down. Once they do, I'll definitely switch over.

Thanks for confirming, I'll buy that strip once B/H is accepting orders tomorrow/sunday.

Ya, no need to buy Eneloops just for the sake of buying some batteries. If what you have is working, sweet. But, when time to buy new ones, look for the best deal you can get on the Eneloops, they really are that good.

Well ... I got one of the Belkin surge protectors after seeing your original post. It seems to do a good job with the convenient spacing, and keeps my Canon chargers where I can easily find them, as well as maintaining a degree of "neatness" in the chaos of my den. I like it...
