Must-have Christmas accessory for parents: Energizer 15-Minute Battery Charger

Energizer Battery ChargerOkay, okay. I know it's two days before Christmas, and thus a teensy bit late for recommending purchases. But I couldn't pass up suggesting an accessory that's a necessity for any family with a slew of techno-gifts under the tree. Given that I just purchased two new wireless Xbox controllers for the 25th (SHHHH!!), I decided I needed something more rapid for recharging batteries than my crappy old Radio Shack recharger. So I picked up the Energizer Ni-mH charger. It only does four batteries at a time. However! The unit has a built-in fan allowing it to run hotter than other chargers, meaning that a row of four batteries powers up in 15 minutes. If, like me, you have a young lad who wants to know why he can't use his controller RIGHT NOW, you should consider this the best gift you can give yourself this holiday season.
