Top Customer Reviews
The ability to select a fast or slow charge is invaluable, as is the ability to mix and match AA and AAA batteries in any way you want, as each battery is charged individually. The car adapter has saved my butt a few times.
The only reason to look elsewhere is if you need to charge something other than NiMH or NiCD AA/AAA batteries.
I've been using the Maha MH-C204FX charger for 9 years now. It performs excellently, however you must charge cells in multiples of two. Two cells make up a single charging circuit. Has two indicator LEDs. Red = charging and GREEN = fully charged and Flashing RED = bad cell. The charger is still going strong after 9 years.
This charger the MH-C401FS is virtually identical, except it charges each cell individually and it has a fast/slow selector switch. So therefore it has four indicator LEDs, one per cell.
I prefer to charge the cells at the slow charge setting. This charges the cells at a lower current, therefore takes longer, but allows the cells to retain more charge and last longer. I am hoping that this new charger lasts me as long as the MH-C204FX is.
Not all cells are created equal
I've been using the same Energizer cells for the last 9 years. I've used PowerEX 1800mAH AA cells initially, but these did not perform well. Gradually the four that I had all died within the first year. The first energizer cells I purchased were the 2100mAH AA. They are still going strong. I have since purchased Energizer 2500mAH and 2300mAH AA cells and they're great. I've recently purchased the Tenergy 2700mAH AA and 1000mAH AAA cells and they work well so far. I have not had the time to load test the cells to determine actual capacity. What I do know is that all these cells outlast the Duracell Ultra and Energizer Max Alkaline cells in most applications (toothbrushes, flashlights, remote controlled toys, TV/Video remotes).Read more ›
UPDATE: I am downgrading this review from 4 stars to 1 star, because it stopped working in less than 1 year. I should have returned it when I first purchased it, because it never worked right (see original comments on the charging problems). I won't be buying this particular charger again, but I will be buying another charger, because the recharged batteries work great and last a long, long time (longer than the Duracell's that I previously used).
I use rechargeable batteries for my wireless keyboard and mouse. At first, i was very excited about this charger (and the 2700 mAh POWEREX batteries), because they last SO much longer than the old rechargeable batteries I used. However, after only a few months, I noticed that the green "charge complete" light stayed on for the 2 charging slots on the right, and there were no lights on for the 2 charging slots on the left (regardless of whether batteries were in the slots). I assumed that even if the lights weren't on, that it would still charge. So, after charging for a day, I put the the batteries in my mouse, and after 5 minutes, the mouse died. Clearly, they didn't charge.Read more ›
