Good charger. Good price. You're unlikely to get a better charger for the money. Heat.

You know advertising has gone too far when it equates "BE(ING) MORE DEMANDING" to a battery charger.
#4
Very tempting indeed for all the extra features, but I've already got a couple of basic Uniross chargers, seems like a waste. Someone sway me please

Depends how much you value your batteries, really. The basic chargers will fry them. This one will gently caress them into a much longer life. Your batteries will be happier and healthier, and you'll soon recoup the cost. Also much quicker and easier to charge your batteries - particularly in ones or threes.

Great price. Can anyone suggest some batteries to go with it?. Eneloops vs amazonbasics vs 7dayshop's own..

Ordered thanks, heat added.

Can't speak for the others but I use this charger with Eneloops, some 2+ years old and their measured capacity is still ~2800-3100mAh. :)

Thanks OP

Any recommendations for something that will charge torch batteries too (18650s mainly) and also run off 12v? Seen a few on amazon but have no idea what I'm looking for!

Yep I use eneloops, but it does depend on want you are using them for, I use mine for standby torches etc that get infrequent use, eneloops hold their charge for up to 5 years, so handy if you are in the middle of nowhere and need a torch etc that you know will work.....for regular daily use I would prob go with something a bit cheaper , but not anything dirt cheap......

And I have this exact charger and it works fine most times but every now and again it seems not to recognise a battery and no amount of swapping it around cures it , but have found that if I put the offending battery in my old uniross charger and then swap it back it works fine...weird ...

I just got one of these https://www.xtardirect.co.uk/product/xtar-vc4-li-ion-18650-battery-charger/ - that runs from a USB cable so should do 12v but they have a selection of simpler ones on their site if you just want one for car or something. I'm very impressed with it so far.

Bargain, I paid £32 for this a few years ago from Amazon (Technoline branding).

Thanks for that. Its for a caravan, to run off the solar panels, so ideally I need a 12v input to avoid messing about. I just saw the VP4 version does just that.

Good charger I have one always on standby. I also use the usb port to power another the Xtar VC4 as it doesnt come with a psu just a usb lead and use a powered mains usb plug

You only need to put the offending battery in a normal charger for seconds and that will put a tiny bit of charge into it, enabling the smart charger to "see" it. It's when they lose all of their charge, the charger can't see them, I keep an old charger for the same reason.

Thanks op, will order one.
What's the best place to buy the Eneloops batteries? Never bought one before ..
thanks

Any recommendations on a cheap dumb charger to compliment this. I bought some enelopps on a good deal a few weeks back so haven't got a recharger yet.
Was going to get this smart charger based on reviews but it seems i'll need an additional one for the reason you mentioned (doesn't seem very smart to me!)

What setting on this should be used for AA and AAA eneloops? I have the old school official sanyo eneloop charger but it takes 10h+ to charge AA's. I'm presuming this is much faster?

You don't need a dumb charger to start a completely drained battery - only need another battery with some charge and two paperclips.

Connect them like this for a 20-30 seconds and you're good to go

I use Liito Kala Li-500. The charger you linked seems to have a very similar casing so I would guess same OEM. But Li-500 has more features.

Good Value, i bought the same charger also known as Technoline BL-700 battery charger for £30 over 4 years ago

Chargers made by manufacturers that make and sell batteries should not be trusted IMO. It's not in their interest to make batteries last as long as possible (which is what this smart charger does).

From what I could tell from reviews at the time it was one of the best chargers for eneloops. There were half a dozen or so different ones all from the manufacturer but this one is basically a trickle charge. I've got 5+ YO Eneloops working as well as the day I got them. The downside is it can't charge single batteries, only pairs and it is not always convenient to wait for 10+ hours for them to charge.

Will replace an old charger... love the idea of cycling to max capacity, should revive a few nicads from the junk box !
Gets excellent reviews from experts.
Thanks op 8)

I'm torn between the known excellence of this deal charger DS-SC1000 and 7DayShop's close relative the Multi-Smart 2000. Just 70p more, does Li-ion, 18650s etc, but the display looks a little less sophisticated, and maybe the performance is too? Help me decide.

Come to think, I sometimes charge C and D cells too, anyone know of something as good as this DS-SC1000 that could also handle those?

Great charger, got one a couple of years back and the functions make it almost indispensable. Eneloops and 7day's own "good to go" are my choices.

What charging rate do you use for your eneloops?
#36
Great deal. I bought one identical to the DS-DC1000 (bar the 7day shop branding) from Amazon for 32 quid back in February

Just a fraction of a second is good enough to briefly raise the terminal open circuit voltage -- just get it straight in the charger within a few seconds. That way you don't risk damaging or wasting the charge of the charged battery.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a charger with really really good end of charge detection? My AccuPower IQ328 seems to miss the end of charge detection far too often and has fried a few batteries. :(
