Monoprice Rapid Charge AA/AAA Battery Charger (Ni-MH & Ni-Cd)
Charge your Ni-MH and Ni-Cd AA and AAA batteries using this Rapid Charge AA/AAA Battery Charger from Monoprice!
This portable charger is capable of simultaneously charging 2 or 4 AA or AAA Ni-MH or Ni-Cd rechargeable batteries. It features easy-to-monitor LED indicators that glow red during charging, then glow green when charging is complete. The charger has a trickle charge feature, which keeps the batteries "topped up" when left in the charger after full charging is complete.
The charger has several safety features, which protect you, your batteries, and the charger from injury or damage. It will automatically stop charging after 10 hours of continuous charging. It can detect when a battery has been inserted the wrong way and will prevent charging until the direction is correction. It also includes Delta V Cutoff, Over Current, Short Circuit, and Over Temperature protection circuits. Additionally, it has a 0 Voltage Jumpstart feature, which allows it to charge batteries that have been completely depleted, something that many other chargers cannot accomplish.
The charger comes with a wall charger, a car charger, and a USB charging cable. The 12V wall charger uses a non-polarized NEMA 1-15 two-blade plug and is compatible with input voltages from 100 ~ 240 VAC, 50/60 Hz. The following chart shows the approximate charging times for batteries of various sizes and types (note that times are based on using either the 12V wall or car charger or a 5V USB connection):
|AC Adapter Input Power||100 ~ 240 VAC, 50/60 Hz|
|Battery Charger Input Power||12 VDC or 5 VDC|
|12V AA Output Power||2.8 VDC, 900mA|
|12V AAA Output Power||2.8 VDC, 500mA|
|5V AA Output Power||2.8 VDC, 500mA|
|5V AAA Output Power||2.8 VDC, 300mA|
