    We have QChargers and they are fine. Just one thing I'd watch, the contacts are easier than Dell chargers to bend, because the batteries just sit on top really. That said, ours are holding up pretty well to user abuse.

    Ours were about £700, so sadly not cheap, but well worth the money for reducing hassle. We've even managed to get them self-managing

    How many will it charge at a time for £700?
    And @sniffer - why do you need them for NC10s - the batteries last 3 days (well slight exaggeration) - I've never had 1 die on me in real school use.

    (Unless you were caught out when Samsung shipped some of them with a couple of AAA ni-cads instead of the 6-cell lithium )

    8, from memory, and they include an on-screen display of characteristics and individual LED charging meters.

    Don't know if this is the same model, but it looks similar: Qcharger : Osborne Technologies Ltd

    SimpleSi,
    They are running out of battery life during the 4th period of use, this is why we are looking into the charging units.
    ps. not caught out with ni cads!!
