OK
So I need to effectively charge my batteries.
I am looking at 2 models
La Crosse BC-700 Battery Charger Analyzer Tester
http://www.lacrossetec​hnology.com/bc700/manu​al.pdf (external link)
MAHA POWEREX MH-C9000 BATTERY CHARGER
http://www.mahaenergy.​com/download/mhc9000.p​df (external link)

As I understand it they will both be able to reset the batteries I have and give a longerlife.
I am also looking at the Powerex batteries.I don't want to go over old ground but want opinions from people on here who use them and if I buy from the states will they work in the UK?

I have 2 of the MAHA POWEREX chargers. I wounldn't heasitate to reccomend them. When I first buy a set of batteries, I use the mode that Charges/discharges/cha​rges to break them in. It actually takes a coupel of days but it conditions the batteries. I then refresh them after about every 10 charges.

I have the La Crosse BC-700 and love it. Either way you can't go wrong. Get what costs you less =)

Hi Thanks
Due to cost in the UK I am ordering from US, shipping is expensive but heho.
I am going to go for the Le Crosse I think and a set of batteries.
I will try reconditioning my older ones.
Anyone want to post it to me, one guy has them for $24.99, but no international.
