This microprocessor-controlled battery charger monitors the voltage and charge level of each individual battery, and adjusts the charge rate to assure charging without overheating and damaging the batteries. Dual color LED indicators show charging state with a color shift from red to green. Red = charging; green = fully charged and maintenance charge. Maintenance charge is also monitored to assure full charge without damaging overcharge. Approximately 8 hours for 0 - full charge NiMH AA batteries.

Depleted AAA Eneloops took 9 hours to charge. Depleted AA Eneloops took 18+ hours (I finally went to bed).
(And no, there's nothing wrong with the batteries. Brand new Eneloops, less than a week old.)
But the kicker is this: Take a "charged" battery out of this charger, let it sit for 5 minutes, put it back in the charger, and it will "charge" for another 4 hours.
And contrary to what the description says, the batteries do get hot. How they managed to combine such incredibly slow charging with heating the batteries is quite an accomplishment. You get the worst of both worlds.
Forget about this product completely, and get a real charger like the Sysmax (Nitecore) Intellicharge i4. You would have to get two of those to match the capacity of this one, and the total cost would be ten dollars more, but you will have MUCH better charging.
The Sysmax charger, in comparison, passes both tests. New Eneloops, and freshly recharged batteries, are recognized as "Full & Done" after just a couple of minutes, instead of overcharging for hours
This thing is junk. It's just going to ruin your batteries with overcharging.
I tried returning it for a refund, but the seller claimed not to have received the package.
UPDATE: So I have been using this item for seven months and... one of the terminals is now broken. The spring-loaded contact is loose and will not hold a battery. It's not a complicated mechanism, so it's very disappointing. No reason for this part to break, unless the materials used are shoddy, or not constructed well.
Would I buy this item again? Yes. But now have to be extra careful when inserting and removing batteries. It's just a simple spring! Should not break if used as intended. The only reason why I am removing one star.
UPDATE 2: I purchased the special bit to open the unit so I can fix the broken slot myself. Discovered two things:
1 - The contact is kept tight with a spring, with a rounded wire loop placed over a post. The loop was not placed over the post, so there was no tension. A simple fix.
2 - Two screws keeping the circuit board in place (there are 3 total) were missing.
So the issue is the construction and quality control process. Whoever put this thing together did not care enough to do it properly. Materials are fine, but the effort to put it together is shoddy.
This thing works great! The only downside is it can seem a little slow if you fill every slot, but I expected that. Better for the batteries, anyway, so no stars lost.
