From 2 to 4 hours.

Can the 2-position compact charger be used world-wide?

Yes, the compact charger has world-wide voltage. You will need to purchase adapters to convert the plug to international standards.

Can I use a "Quick Charger" to charge an eneloop battery?

Though it is possible to charge an eneloop battery in a "Quick Charger", it is not recommended. We recommend charging eneloop batteries in a Ni-MH charger that is 2 hours or more. Charging eneloop batteries in a "Quick Charger" can reduce the overall life of the battery. It is strongly recommended to use eneloop, Sanyo or Sanyo NiMh battery chargers. We only warrant eneloop if used with an eneloop, Sanyo or Sanyo NiMh battery charger.

Will my eneloop battery charge in any other charger other than the eneloop charger?

It is strongly recommended to use eneloop, Sanyo or Sanyo Ni-MH battery chargers. Most Ni-MH rechargeable battery chargers may be used to charge eneloop, however we only warranty eneloop if used with an eneloop, Sanyo or Sanyo Ni-MH battery charger.

Is my eneloop or Sanyo Ni-Mh only able to charge eneloop or Sanyo-Ni-Mh rechargeable batteries?

With an eneloop or Sanyo Ni-Mh charger you can charge all Ni-Mh rechargeable batteries. We recommend using eneloop or Sanyo Ni-Mh rechargeable batteries as our chargers are made to suit the requirements of those batteries perfectly.

At the moment the MQR06 charger is not available with a UK plug though a market launch in the UK is planned for the near future. The specific release-date will be posted on our website soon. The current eneloop chargers with UK plug are MDR02 and MQN04.
