Ideal for at home, at the office, or when traveling, this battery charger brings rechargeable batteries back to life, saving money and helping to ensure that remote controls, cameras, flashlights, and other modern-day conveniences stay working their best. The battery charger accommodates NiCd and NiMH AA and AAA rechargeable batteries only (not for use with other types of batteries like alkaline, lithium, or carbon zinc), and it can charge AA and AAA batteries simultaneously. To operate, simply insert up to four batteries, select the mode, select the rate (from 200 mAh to 1800 mAh), and it takes care of the rest. The charging unit offers four number keys along the top, individual LCD displays for each charging compartment, and three function keys at the bottom--Current, Display, and Mode. Push the Mode button to choose from four categories: Charge mode to charge the rechargeable battery (automatically switches to trickle charge after the battery is full); Discharge mode to discharge then charge the rechargeable battery to minimize the memory effect; Refresh mode to refresh the rechargeable battery to maximum capacity by charging and discharging it repeatedly; and Test mode to check the rechargeable battery capacity in mAh/Ah. Even more, it features a built-in heat monitor that prevents overcharging. Accessories include four AA and four AAA NiMH rechargeable batteries, four C-size and four D-size battery adapters, and a travel bag. The battery charger measures 5 by 3 by 1-1/2 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty.
