What kind of Charger do you need for AAA batteries?

First, you need a charger. These are widely available. The specs for this charger are: AA batteries charge at 190mA. AAA batteries charge at 90mA. This is a bit higher than recommended trickle charging at 35mA, but, not that much more.

What kind of Charger do I need for my phone?

The specs for this charger are: AA batteries charge at 190mA. AAA batteries charge at 90mA. This is a bit higher than recommended trickle charging at 35mA, but, not that much more.
