Maha Powerex 2700 and MH-C800 chargers.  Got to where we carry only lights that use AA batteries.  Luggage lighter and charger is much smaller.

I still think that the lower capacity eneloops will give you more charges than the new xx2500. My understanding is that the 2500 are actually a kind of hybrid battery with some low internal discharge capacity and some higher internal discharge to get to the 2500 level with fewer cycles and a bit less long term storage capacity.
