NiMH Battery Chargers that work

I have a good mix of AAA, AA, C, D & 9V rechargeable batteries. Are the mindblowingly-expensive Powerex
chargers the only game in town for getting a decent charge, or are there other options?

I have two chargers, an Energizer multi-everything which came with a free travel AA/AAA charger. The main unit charges really quickly, but the batteries come out pretty hot, and have clearly been fast charged to part capacity. The little charger takes forever (upwards of 16 hours for a pair of 600 mAh AAAs) but the batteries barely get warm, and the charge lasts up to 4× as long as from the big charger. So I'm looking for better options, thanks.

is likely prohibitive/impossible.)
