Getting optimum performance and life from your NiCd and NiMH batteries is a matter of reliable, consistent charging. This economical charger from the world leader in portable power technology helps you monitor and charge your AA and AAA rechargeable cells simply and efficiently and lets you monitor the process to help you keep them in top condition and ensure the longest service life possible. It also charges mobile devices, such as phones and MP3 players. Although relatively inexpensive, it's usable around the globe and packed with the features you expect from Ansmann and it's backed by a 3-year warranty.
The 4-station charger accepts 1 – 4 AA or AAA NiCd or NiMH cells. Since each station is individually monitored and controlled, you can charge a single cell as well as different combinations of batteries. Charging current for both sizes is 450mA, for a slower charge that helps prolong battery life. A bright, clear LCD shows battery voltage and percent of charge while a station is in use. Each station features defective cell detection, reverse polarity protection, redundant overcharge protection, automatic shutoff and trickle charge to keep your batteries "topped up".
When not charging batteries, you can plug your mobile device into the 5V, 1A USB port for charging. Since the Powerline Light comes with a power supply that can be switched between 120VAC and 240VAC input and adapters for different countries, this unit doubles as a great travel charger for your mobile phone or tablet.
With all these features and Ansmann's legendary quality, this low-cost charger offers the best value available anywhere. If you're like most people and just need a dependable charger that you can use anywhere, without the need for extremely fast charging rates, don't settle for low quality and performance. Spend a few pounds wisely and keep your batteries in peak condition with this basic, but intelligent and versatile charger.
