# I have seen recently on TV a product being advertised called the
# "Buddy-L Super Charger". This is a battery charger designed to
# recharge ALKALINE batteries. They claim that thier charger is safe
# to use, and that you can ignore the warning message on Alkaline batteries
# when you use THIER charger. This was a half-hour infomercial seen
# on local TV, and several time on Cable. Program was put together very
# well and was hosted by*** Clark.
# I am considering ordering this charger, but I would like to talk
# to someone who has one first.
# Does anyone reading this have this product. Does anyone know of
Not sure how well it works.
# any other ALKALINE battery chargers manufactured by other companies.
There were at least two potential companies (one Canadian based and
other U.S. based?) doing this. I THINK Duracell (batteries being their
bread and butter) had taken more of a hit in the stocks prices than other
battery companies when it looked like the prototypes worked. The
"Buddy-L Super Charger" is the first one to be introduced. I expected
them to be out before Christmas this year - maybe another one will come
