I have been using for about 2 months now with no issues at all.
John D Pinder
The ONLY strike against this product is that the manuel is written in German, but if you simply follow the color code on the front of the charger it will be enough.

It can charge AAA, AA, D, C and 9V batteries in any combination.

I searched for 2 weeks for the "best" charger to fit my needs, current and future. This is what I came up with. I was a little skeptical about the lack of reviews on this charger, but decided to get one anyway, especially with its 3 year warranty. I still have some older 600maH Nicads in my "fleet" that I felt would not be best to charge with Maha's MH-C808M, which charges at 1000ma minimum. I was also unimpressed with the so-called "LCD display" on the 808. The LEDs on the Ansmann are capable of displaying everything you need to know about the charging mode and battery condition, making an LCD display unnecessary. In my opinion, an LCD display would only be desirable if it displayed the actual maH accumulated charge of each cell. I very much wanted to have that feature, but sadly there are no chargers currently on the market that charge C and D size cells, and offer maH display. To that end, the LaCrosse BC-900 was considered, but I would've had to buy 3 of them to charge as many batteries as this model, and still could not charge Cs, Ds, or 9Vs, which I may add to my collection. So far, I have only charged "AA" size Nimh and Nicads with this charger, but I am happy to report that both the Nicads and Nimh peaked out nicely after the brief "Refresh cycle" this charger gives them. I sample tested some of the charged batteries by resting them 24 hrs, then discharging them with my Dymond (hobby) charger/analyzer (at 0.5C), which discharges to 0.8V per cell.Read more ›

I am new to rechargeable batteries, and this is my first charger. I bought it based on the positive reviews, thinking I was buying "the best" out there. I also bought some new sanyo eneloop AA batteries, which I fully charged with this unit, and then placed in my child's toy. When the toy stopped working, I removed the batteries and placed them back into the charger, only to get a "faulty cell" error message. I contacted [...] about the problem. They told me the sanyo cells were probably old and defective, and that I should return them to the manufacturer. I sent all 4 back to Sanyo. Sanyo returned them to me stating that the cells were simply depleted, and that they were able to fully charge them again with their own sanyo charger (approx. $10 retail value). I contacted [...] again, and they did not have an answer except for me to ship the unit across country for a servicing evaulation (I was never informed that the unit should indeed detect depleted cell. For all I know, the unit did exactly as programmed). I bought a sanyo charger as back up in case this happens again. I was very disappointed in this expensive charger and was frustrated that I spent so much time and effort.

Update: 10/23/2013. I continue to get the 'faulty cell' flashing red light. When that happens, I plug the same battery into a 'dumb' charger, e.g. sanyo or tenergy, and most of the time the dumb charger with charge it back to 'green.' The other times, I use copper wire and a 'D' battery to 'MacGyver' the battery back to life. Another problem I've had is that with very light/limited use, one of the terminals that plugs into the 9V batteries broke off (remained stuck in the battery). And one of springs on the retaining clips broke, so that the cylinder batteries (AAA, AA, C, D) are no longer able to be held in place in that slot. Because of the poor construction, I am downgrading my rating to 2 stars...

This charger has all the features I wanted! It can charge AAA, AA, D, C and 9V batteries in any combination. It acts as a battery level check when a battery is first inserted. The power cord is removeable for easier storage. The feature I like best is the ability to leave the batteries in the charger indefinitely, and not have to worry about overcharging them. It's not cheap, but worth every penny!

This charger is great built quality, and charges AAA, AA, C, D, and 9 V batteries. However, it does not charge my AA Sanyo Eneloop XX batteries. I've tested them across 12 Eneloop XX batteries. The XX batteries are fine, and are not depleted (someone reports this charger won't charge completely depleted batteries), and they can be charged by the Sanyo charger perfectly. I even let them charge on the Sanyo charger for a bit, then put them back in: still no luck. The Ansmann will refresh them fine, then comes charge time, it will flash with the error code.

I've read another reviewer on Amazon with problems charging regular AA Sanyo Eneloop batteries. I have them too, and did a test charge without problems. However all regular Eneloop batteries I tested are already over 80% charged, so I can't speak for if Ansmann can charge these in other charge conditions.

I've also charged the AA Duracel Stay-Charged batteries, it worked fine. When it works, the Ansmann is awesome.

Since I'm a photographer, using the Eneloop XX batteries are critical to me, so I have no choice but to return it. I really wish it worked for me.
