If you're the kind of person that has the foresight to use rechargeable batteries for all your electronic devices, you probably face a challenge in keeping all those different sizes and types charged and in peak condition. This charger from Ansmann, a world leader in battery technology, can help meet that challenge. It charges all of the most common sizes of NiCd or NiMH cells and features microprocessor-controlled, automated technology to refresh and recondition your batteries and help you get the most out of your investment in them. As an added bonus, it doubles as a charging station for USB devices like mobile phones and Mp3 players.
The charging stations accept from 1 to 12 AAA or AA, 1 to 6 C or D, and 1 or two 9V cells. Each station has its own monitoring and control circuitry, so cells can be safely charged individually. On insertion of a battery, the charger automatically performs a quick test to determine the stored charge and selects the correct charging sequence. Depending on the battery condition, the charger will initiate a pre-charge for extremely low batteries, a refresh sequence, or a normal charge cycle. Ansmann's refresh sequence can even rejuvenate worn cells, to extend their useful life. A tri-colour LED on each station indicates the cell's condition and charging status, as well as a faulty or fully charged battery.
The charger delivers 1A for AA, C and D cells, 400mA for AAA and 60mA for 9V cells. The 2 USB ports provide 5V at 1A, for charging mobile devices. A switched power supply setting lets you select 120V or 240V input, so it can be used internationally, making it a great choice for anyone who travels.
You already know that rechargeable batteries are better for both your pocketbook and the environment. This versatile charger and reconditioning system will help maximise the advantages of powering your electronic devices with NiCd or NiMH cells and automatically ensure that you get the longest possible service from each cell. It's also a perfect way to carry a universal charging station for your mobile phone, tablet or music player. With its versatility and the kind of quality that lets Ansmann offer a 3-year warranty, there's no better choice for a universal charger.
