hi,

try www.ebuyer.com or www.maplin.co.uk  both should have a whole choice of rechargers.

You should look at buying NIMH rather than NICAD, they're a newer technology and last quite a lot longer, they're only slightly more expensive these days so worth getting.  

Bear in mind though that when charging you cant mix NICAD and NIMH, on my charger i have a switch to select between the two types so i guess there is a difference.

Don't know where you are from but if you really want to know about recharging batteries and the method of doing it read the application notes from some of the leading manufacturers of IC's (Intergration Circuit Manufacturers) here is a list of a few

Just go to their Appnotes section and download and learn. If you want to shortcut your experience of electronics (and you can solder) buy a magazine about electronics and find out about their projects.

NiMH stands for Nickel Metal Hydride

NiCad stands for Nickel Cadmium

As you can see (read) if you go to the periodic table (Chemistry) you will find that these "metals" are dangerous but so is NaCl and that is common table salt (Natrium Chloride) or as in english "sodium chloride"

Good Luck and do not award me with any points
