Yes, another battery question...

I am finding my battery use to be high enough these days that I'm finally going to invest in a rechargable system. In searching Nikonians I find lots of discussion leading me toward a Maha charger and Maha or Eneloop battries, but most posts are from several years ago.

So is Maha still the way to go? I'm looking at the MH-C801D or maybe 9000 chargers. I would like the 8 battery capacity, but is there any operational reason to consider the 9000 instead? Any other charger options to consider? (I'm fine with the price and size of the 801D if that is the best way to go).

How about batteries ( definitely the low discharge types as my usage is heavy but intermittent and I want to be able to just pull batteries out of the closet and go when necessary)? Immedion, Eneloop, or some other option I'm not aware of??

The Maha functions and manuals seem pretty complex -- can anyone point me toward a simple but comprehensive discussion of just how to use this thing?

Sorry to revisit these questions agin -- but any help or guidance will be much appreciated...
