Don,

The way I handle them is I use a pair until they are too weak to run the camera. Then I charge the alternate pair, which takes about 5 hours using the same charger I used to use with the Energizers. This set is probably somewhere close to two years old and still very strong.

A lot will depend on how quickly the motor depletes the batteries, but probably should still give at least double the life of other varieties.

Got them! Charger, two AA and two AAA, $13.97. Will let them run right down, but they ran the grinder great right out of the package.

I have had good luck with the Duracell pre-charged batteries. It is great, this new technology that lets rechargeables hold their charge between uses.

I use them in my electronic bagpipe and in all the kids toys.

They should not be charged right out of the box as they should already be almost fully charged.

But they shouldn't explode from being charged and then left to sit. It says right on the box the charger will not over charge and there is no fear of leaving them in the charger.

If it was a new charger I would be thinking a defective charger was the cause.

Exchange them. Costco has a good return policy.

An update. After another three years I am still using the original four batteries and getting 2-3 months per charge.
