Great value for money – 4 x AA/AAA Battery Charger with 1.5" LCD Display (100~240V AC) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- The charge current (0.5A - 1A for AA, 0.25A - 0.5A for AAA depending on the number of cells) is just right to be fast enough (2 - 6 hrs) yet not stress the batteries.
- Refresh mode (discharge then charge).
- Reliable charge termination.
Cons:
- There seems to be a minor bug: pressing "Refresh" button after the charging is complete causes discharge to start but then it switches to charge in a few seconds. Pressing "Refresh" button once again then starts discharge normally.
- The LCD is not very informative: it seems to show "almost empty"/"almost full" state until charge/discharge is almost complete.
Other:
It is easier to install the battery positive end first and remove it pulling the negative side which is a bit uncommon.
Bottomline:
Highly recommended for common uses.
