The Energy 8 Plus charger combines an attractive design with German engineering expertise from Ansmann, a top authority in electronics technology. Suitable for recharging NiCd and NiMH cells, this device features:
- microprocessor control.
- temperature monitoring.
- a safety timer.
- separate supervision and control of each cell.
- charging slots for six AA or AAA batteries, up to four C or D size cells and one or two 9V E-block batteries.
After inserting the batteries for recharging, a five-second capacity test and battery diagnosis run automatically before starting the pre-charge, refresh or full charging cycle. The maximum current is 1 Amp for AA, C and D cells (in quick charge mode), 400mA for AAA size batteries and a slower charge rate of 60mA for 9V E-blocks.
On reaching maximum battery charge, the Energy 8 Plus reverts to trickle-charge mode. Separate LEDs for each battery slot station indicate charging status and warn of faulty cells or alkaline batteries, while five-way overcharge protection circuitry extends battery life and ensures safety.
Carefully finished in silver and blue, the Ansmann Energy 8 smart charger measures 172 by 191 by 57 millimetres and weighs 605 grammes. Thanks to a mains input voltage selector (120V or 240V AC), this unit is portable worldwide. A power cord, manual and three-year warranty are included.
Please note that some charging slots on this charger are battery size specific. This means a variety of battery sizes will be required to achieve the advertised maximum capacity.
