What's the preferred AA/AAA battery charger nowadays? For use with IKEA Ladda AA batteries.

Some features I would like are:
Bad battery detector
Discharge /Recharge
LCD panel with status (Not sure a red and green light)
Independent slots that allow you to charge 1-8 (or more) at once.

It has to be available for purchase now. So if you have a charger that has worked flawlessly for you for 5 years but is not currently sold, it's not going to help me.

Under $30.

This one looks pretty promising:
BONAI 8+1 Bay AA Battery Charger with LCD Display for Rechargeable AA/AAA NiMH/NiCd 9V Rechargeable Batteries

I have 2 older Powerex that have been fine as a rec of a "manufacturer".
They still have plenty of newer ones.
But the one you've linked certainly would check all the boxes and even does 9v.

I have two of the La Crosse Technology BC1000 Alpha Power Battery Charger which sells for $50 on amazon. I've been using them since 2018. [www.amazon.com]

One thing I look for is if the charger either uses a wall wart to convert to 12v DC, or if there is a 12v second power port to run the charger. That way you can run off your vehicle while traveling. I have an old LaCrosse and a NiteCore that do.

I've been using a BC 9009 since 2008. my son's XBox controller keeps it busy. been fiddling with it in the past week trying to figure out if it's on its legs or i need to understand it better. even found the owner's manual. sure has been a workhorse for the last 12 years.

I got a LaCrosse BC 9009 in a box full of stuff at an auction a couple of years ago. Came with a bunch of eneloop Aa and AAA rechargeable batteries too. I really like it.

The first review on the Amazon LaCrosse BC 9009 page is very exhaustive. At the end, the guy reccomends this as superior: [www.amazon.com]

D4,

I have AA, AAA, C and D NiMH batteries. I invested in a charger that can handle all of them. This is the newest version of the charger:

The predecessor has been very good. I also have one of the LaCrosse chargers since I go through so many AA batteries.
