Choosing poor chargers and putting down the category doesn't make a lot of sense. My personal use parallels what we've found at work. The rechargeable batteries save time, save money, and have a better footprint on the planet aspect.Certainly can't qualify as "liking" the results. I switched to them about 10 years ago for a lot of field business gear. The batteries were okay, but the problem really was the quality of the chargers being very poor. Few things got under my skin worse than taking out batteries that were freshly cycled in the charger only to have half of them be dead. This was especially true for chargers that could handle 4+ batteries at once.
I gave up on them and never looked back.
Chargers from well known brands have generally been good but we've also done well purchasing stuff that gets lots of good crowd-sourced reviews.
Poor quality chargers goes beyond these products. With around 200 mobile and tablets at work and some who have corporate charge cards we found buying cheap no name junk is often waste but have first tier brand chargers that rarely fail. I don't ever recall the Apple USB chargers failing for 10+ years so have bought some of the rigs that line up 8+ of them with slots to hold and charge devices.
