The TG-LCD2700 ($24.99) is a two-hour LCD charger that can be used for AA or AAA batteries. Its voltages measure 100-240 volts for worldwide usage, and it features the same advanced technology as the TG-CH800.

Finally, the TG-PC2200 rechargeable NiMH AA batteries are 2200mAh with a $9.99 suggested retail for a four-pack.
All of the products are described as being "100 percent memory-free," which means they can be charged between 500 and 1,000 times, depending on the product.
