Do you get a 10 year Warranty for replacement from any of those companies, Also is their chargers 10X more Power Efficient then Apples.
Answer for both NO.
Piece of mind for a few dollars is worth it, 10 years is 10 years, if they fail you get a free replacement from Apple.
Sure it's worth it.
For the haters you could package 10 batteries and they still would find something to squawk about thats Anti Apple.
You don't have to buy Apples offering it is an Accessory and that gives you Choice.
Note: MJ Web,
This is not a Attack on you, You made valid points, Allot of posters that seem to think they are being railroaded into buying this charger and ridiculing, but none have posted the benefit's and service you get when you purchase an Apple Branded product. This post was Addressing those issues and not your observations directly.
Both Apple and Sanyo batteries have a one year warranty and I believe Apple is a rebranded Eneloop. Would you really have the Chutzpah to walk into an Apple store with a 9 year old battery and a receipt and insist on a replacement?
