I saw the words 'automatic', 'fast', and 'universal' as key descriptors for this Ni-MH charger, and incorrectly concluded this was a standard low-end big boxy smart charger equivalent to the many others that flooded the market a dozen years ago. But FYI this is NOT a smart charger ... and it is NOT a fast charger! This is more akin to late 1980's-era 5 or 8 hour timed charger. I'm 42 yrs old and would bet most people looking at this younger than 35 don't even remember what it means to use a (technically dumb) timed battery charger like this. It will overcharge your NiMH if not first completely discharged ... and it will undercharge your NiMH if its capacity is over 1000 mah for AAA and AA, or 3000 mah for C and D sized cells. This charger is nothing more than a power converter coupled with an old fashioned timer. Just look at the fine print closer than I did ;-)
