KH 980 Lidl intelligent Delta V charger :- independently charge 1-6 AA /AAA cells, 1-4 C/D cells, or 1-2 9v PP3.
Some think this has the same insides as some of the Maha or Annsman units that retails at £40 +. An extra bonus is the usual LIDL 3 year warranty.

The circuitry analyses each battery and may perform discharging, initial pulse charging and then standard charging on an individual basis..
This is very important for anyone either making regular use of multiple batteries or topping up half charged batteries. Older used sets of batteries can benefit more due to age related mismatch/variance and certainly helps ensure all of the batteries are fully charged.
The only niggle in this unit is that sometimes a completely dead zero voltage battery first needs a kick start from a dumb charger such the poundland USB charger.
Anyone still using the flash function of a camera with alkaline batteries will find that NiMh batteries last at least twice as long - times one thousand.
Note that no batteries are included.
The standard retail price in Lidl is £12.99(before the VAT rise) and certainly great value even at that price.
