    Greetings!

    This here, is my version of an alkaline battery charger. Built and tested with success. Charged a dead AA in less then 30 mins, the battery was cool to the touch during the process. I'm not cheap, but why not recycle/reuse when you can?!

    :)

    A standard alkaline battery will likely have only a small fraction of its capacity as compared to a fresh battery after this "charge".

    Alkaline batteries are not rechargeable.
