Verified Purchase
The Zeikos ZE-PC3000 package contains a 'Rapid' charger, and four AA 'Precharged' batteries rated at 3000mAh capacity.

Personally, I never knew the difference between 'Rapid', 'Fast' and 'Quick' when it comes to chargers. The product description did not give us any clues on the charging time or current. Only when I received the charger did I find out that the charging current is 500mA. That translates to 6-7 hours of charge time for those '3000mAh' batteries - if the capacity number can be trusted.

First thing you should know is: this Zeikos ZE-PC3000 can only charge in pairs. This means you're out of luck if you have appliances that require 1 or 3 cells. This is a common problem with most cheaply-made chargers. But there are other factors that make this Zeikos charger particularly bad:

- The battery compartment is EXTREMELY tight for AA cells.
- The charging current is not well-regulated. It starts from 500mA with exhausted cells, but drops to only 300mA when cells are nearly full.
- The charge-termination circuit is based on the combined voltage of two cells. So if you pair one exhausted cell with one charged cell in this charger, the second cell will be badly over-charged.
- The same charging current is used for both AA and AAA cells. In the user manual it actually suggested you can pair one AA and one AAA for charging. This is a really bad idea because the AAA cell will be over-charged.

The four Zeikos 'R2U' rechargeable batteries are advertised to be 'Precharged and Ready to Use', and having a capacity of whooping '3000mAh'.
