I've had the Apple Battery Charger for a good long while now. After I bought it, I also bought a couple 8-packs of Sanyo Eneloop HR-3UTGA batteries, known to be the same model of battery included with Apple's charger. They worked great until a couple days ago. Now, with the Apple-branded batteries in the charger, it works fine. But when I put the Sanyos in the charger, nothing happens. No status light comes on. Nothing. Zilch.
I've tried swapping out different sets of batteries, and it seems that my charger has suddenly taken an intense dislike for the Sanyos, completely without warning. But when I put the Apple batteries in, no problem.
Can anyone suggest a course of action? Is it a bum charger now, or is something weird going on?
