Battery Charger for "AA" Rechargeable Batteries

Hi Guys,
The transmitter I have requires 4 "AA" batteries and I wondered if there is a good charger available that can charge 4 "AA" batteries and be comfortable that it is not going to ruin my batteries. I'm not concerned about "fast" charging...overnight is fine. I just want to get something better than the one that came with our 4 rechargeable batteries that plugs into the wall.....I've been lead to believe that it basically "fries" the batteries over time. I also don't need a charger with LED read-out that monitors each battery, etc. I just want to pop the 4 "AA" batteries into the charger, plug it into the wall, and be sure I get a good overnight charge without ruining the batteries. If, in fact, there is a quality "fast" charger that doesn't ruin the batteries, I'll consider that too.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Cheapest and simple option is likely to buy one of the "bundles" at any electronics type store that includes a charger and 4AA. Otherwise, I use a MAHA charger for my high end AA and C cells (for a different hobby). I get mine from Thomas Distributing.

Tanic Packs has a 4-slot MAHA charger on clearance for $4.95, just go to their site and search for maha.

I think the La Crosse BC-900 is tough to beat.
