Customer Reviews

Nope, just didn't work and now it won't work at ALL!
A. J. Koch
There is no "lock" or click, so you have to fiddle with it until you see the green light.
Starry-Eyed Mama
It takes 24 hours and does not fully charge the batteries!

The Energizer Overnight Family Battery Charger (CHFCV) looks very similar to the Rayovac Universal Battery Charger (PS3). Both are capable of charging AAA, AA, C, D-cells and 9V batteries. They are physically about the same size, and even cost about the same. So one would expect the charger with a more famous brand (Energizer) to have a better design, right? WRONG!

The biggest problem with the Energizer CHFCV is that it is a timer-based dumb charger. That means this charger does not detect whether your batteries are empty or fully. It simply charges them at a fixed current (200mA) for a fixed time (16.5 hours) and then turns off. If all you ever need is to recharge AA cells with capacity 2500-2700mAh, then this is not too bad (because 200mA*16.5h = 3300mAh). However, this charger treats all different battery sizes (AA/AAA/C/D) the same way. So if you are charging a pair of 800mAh AAA cells, you better remember to remove them after 4-5 hours, otherwise they will be over-charged by 300%! On the other hand, if you try to use this charger with larger capacity cells (such as a pair of 10,000mAh D-cells), the timer will expire long before the cells are fully charged.

Another problem with this dumb charger is: it can only recharge identical cells in pairs. This is very inconvenient if you have appliances that require odd number (1 or 3) of cells. Now you are left with an empty cell that you cannot recharge. If you try to pair up an empty cell with a full cell in this charger, the latter one will be badly over-charged.

this unit would be perfect except for two gripes.

1) when you take charged batteries out and put in ones to be charged, you have to unplug the whole unit then plug it back in for the charging led's to start. maybe the unit does charge but the led's won't light unless you unplug/plug.

2) plastic cover is great for keeping out dust, but i find it a pain to have to keep opening/closing the unit. Also, some batteries get really warm when charging and i'm worried that keeping the top closed may get it really hot (and reduce charging life of the batteries).

ok. one last gripe.

3) getting D cells out of this unit is like an act of God. They stick in there really tightly and require turning the unit upside down and smacking the bottom to get them out.

but it does a great job of charging (and not overcharging to my knowledge) so for the inexpensive price, i'm not going to complain.

It would've gotten a 5 except for the small problems mentioned above...

I mainly purchased this to charge the 9-volt batteries available. None of the info online indicated what the charging times were, and it turns out it takes 10-13 hours to charge these little batteries! The other types do charge faster, but still require at least several hours.

If you don't need 9-volt batteries it is definitely worth getting the quick chargers - I have a 15-minute version for AA & AAA batteries that works wonderfully. I would buy this charger for C, D, and 9-Volt recharge capability, just know they will take a long time.

Ok, I've had this charger for about a year; I picked it up at Wally World for $20 and had little alternatives at the time... One main reason I got it was due to it supporting a vast array of batteries, which no doubt everyone will find useful...

The pack I bought said nothing about "overnight charging", evidently they updated it due to users whining... The charge times are long, so of coarse you can take a nap, or three, while waiting for your batteries to charge...

As others have stated, you must unplug the device when inserting new batteries... Evidently the thought of an on/off switch evaded the R&D team over at Energizer...

There are a few changes I'd make:
1. Green Done light vs "off" red light.
2. This plastic door seems to be a waste of space, not to mention a heat desperation problem; you should at least drill several holes in it to allow for some (small) amount of cooling... Maybe even add in a tiny fan?
3. On/Off Switch or some sort of intelligent indicator which senses a battery is dead and needs charged... If one neglects to do the "unplug" procedure and goes away for the 16.5 hours required to charge a "high capacity" AA battery, you've wasted a complete day (and then some) waiting to charge two batteries lol...

It's a wonderful unit for those who don't mind waiting (and want all the bells and whistles), however, I would definitely recommend a quick charger for those who don't have a ton of spare rechargeables (unliek me, I have a good 10 spares floating around the house)

If you are buying this charger for D-cell applications, especially: The original reason for a large D sized battery was for high demand applications needing higher capacity. 2500 mAh (AA-cell) capacities encased into a D-cell rechargeable negates the original reason for a D-cell in the first place. Do yourselves a big favor and pass on any "dumb" type charger, which is low current, and a timer only based charger. Also pass on the 2500 mAh D sized batteries that go along with them. They are nothing but AA equivalents inside a plastic shell. Look for a fast charger, which is "smart" with delta-V cutoff (charge based cutoff), and use 10,000 mAh D sized batteries to go with it. It will cost you a little more, especially the batteries, but it is well worth it! To charge a high capacity 10,000 mAh battery you need more charger that can deliver more current so that it does not take days to charge, and/or stop charging based on time for a low cap battery. Incidentally, regular alkaline D-cells are about 12,000 mAh, so if you think the 2,500 mAh cheapo (low capacity) batteries are going to give similar results in your device to alkalines, forget it. However, the high cap (10,000 mAh or greater) D-cells will give you similar if not better run times. Finally, this charger and other "dumb" type chargers WILL NOT charge odd numbers of batteries. You are forced to charge only in pairs. So if you have a device that does not use an even number of cells, you may have to keep an extra charged cell to use with a discharged one to charge that single cell, which will result in a constant overcharging of the "dummy" cell. Either that, or you have to have enough cells on hand to rotate them around. Real pain. This odd number problem will cause the same rotation dilema for AAA, AA, C, and Ds. Note: (Rayovac's P-93 will not fully charge 10,000 mAh D-cells).
