I not too long ago bought a PowerGenix NiZn battery charger with four batteries, and I've been very pleased with the performance of the batteries. Unfortunately, I seem to have lost two of them, and when I went to Fry's to buy more (only NiZn batteries work in the charger), I found that they were discontinued. I found a few online, but it appears that the manufacturer isn't making them anymore! I went ahead and ordered an 8-pack online, but I wish I'd known that Fry's (where I'd originally purchased the charger) didn't have it so I could have saved myself the trip.

Update: I found the other two NiZi batteries; I'd left them in the tote bag I'd taken to WonderCon. I'm not sorry I bought an eight-pack of additional batteries, though, since it has to be, in effect, a lifetime supply.
