Good charger, but ... – AC Charger for AA/AAA/9V Batteries (110~220V) Reviews

Pros:
Good universal charger for home, can charge AA, AAA, 9V block, has 2 different charging circuits so can charge 2x,4x AA AAA or 1x,2x 9V block.
Cons:
This charger is good only for AA batteries. Is charging AA at 220-230mA which is very good for normal AA charging. But AAA is charging very fast (at 300-330mA) which is not good if you want quality charge your AAA cells, and batteries gets warm after few hours. 9V block is charging very slow (at 10mA) and it takes too long to full charge it (about 21 hours). This was measured on imput 230V AC and output 2x AAA(Soshines,900mAh) and 1x 9V block(200mAh). If you will charge 4xAAA,AA or 2x9V block, charging time will be doubled.
Other:
Bottomline:
Good charger, but next time I will buy another, just for AAA charging speed.
