its just about unbeatable for price
#3
Well, it's cheap, but not for those who use rechargeables heavily, as it's no performer (10 hours!), and for some reason only charges TWO AAAs - odd that?!

Some info on the charger on this page: http://www.battery-force.co.uk/detail_PAAANI004F.html?via=fg
#4
can't go wrong for the price.
#5
What size batteries are they supposed to charge? I assume it runs on a timer and switches off automatically after a set time?
#6
hot hot hot, thanks and rep added:thumbsup:
#7
ideal, just wha I need
#9
So do these only charge batteries up to 2100.0mAh then ???

Hot deal btw :)

Edit: misread the review.
I guess they are refering to the batteries that come with the charger in their review that are 2100 mAh, DOH
#10
Great price, and good brand name, but this is not a high quality charger. The fact that this can charge "2 or 4" batteries means each battery may not be charged to it's optimal capacity, or may infact be overcharged and damage it's life expectancy. Ideally a charger should be able to charge individual cells. That way when it it is fully charged it will simple stop charging or switch to trickle charge mode. Charging two batteries with different capacities or differing levels of residual charge will result in one being over charged and one being undercharged with this unit.

Do not think you are getting a good charger for £2.99. You are getting a cheap charger for £2.99, but it is still a very good price. 7dayshop do not list the specs for a reason, Google BQ-829 to find them.
#11
Are you sure? I took it to mean that it has two slots for AAAs and four slots for AAs, so you can put up to two AAAs or up to four AAs in there. Additionally, it says it has an indicator to show when the last cell is fully charged, so it's obviously designed to deal with cells of differing characteristics.

It doesn't come with batteries.

Note those are hybrid batteries - low self-discharge rate so suitable for applications where normal batteries would be expected to last months.

There's no need to specify Panasonic batteries for Panasonic chargers though - the makes are completely interchangeable.

If your anything like me, you would like everything matched hence why i stated the Panasonic batteries to go with the Panasonic Charger.

a good deal non the less, but i have my Sony charger and batteries so hope this deal can be off any good use to anyone!
#16
Can anyone suggest a charger which charges each battery individually and has a sensor?

Good deal, but im looking for one which is little more capable.

A little bit of a long shot, but I mentioned this one in a post today:
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/528752/energizer-universal-battery-charger/showpost.php?p=6894379&postcount=4

I have even bought a couple of these for gifts. They have been discussed at length in previous threads.

My local Lidl had a few left, but as they have been available a little while, no guarantees other stores will still have them.

I think that's a very misguided concept, in more aspects than just with rechargeable batteries and chargers.

For one, it's not often a way to save money, for another, many companies just badge up other makers products as they don't manufacture an equivalent themselves, but it enables them to offer a "complete" range; so you may well not be getting anything special :-(

Dumb chargers are a false economy. Buy an intelligent charger, they're usually about £15-25 and are microprocessor controlled.
#20
Bought this and the AA eneloops for use in my xbox wireless controller - first charge and they lasted me for 3 1/2 weeks and that was some hardcore playing on fifa and then Modern Warfare 2 ... (the ran out yesterday)

Swapped over the the 2nd set knowing they will last a long time and i wont have to charge again.

A better alternative to the xbox plug and play kits etc as you dont have to charge it so often and it can be used in a more convenient location that via usb

Perhaps for a fast charger, but if you're happy to charge overnight, there's no need.

There is a common argument that leaving cheap, slow chargers on TOO long can cook them too, and I must admit to having forgotten to switch a charger off before now, and for that reason alone the one I have now is a Godsend!

No that's not the point. Intelligent chargers monitor the batteries performance and tailor the load to suit them so they get the best treatment. You end up with batteries that charge quicker, last longer, hold more charge, and can be reused more times.

Standard chargers kill batteries... usually through overcharging/overheating

That tends to be an exaggeration. After all, most DECT cordless phones leave their batteries charging continuously, wasting energy and making them warm. They still last. (Off-topic: the Siemens Gigaset I have just bought, which makes lots of noises about energy efficiency, actually stops charging. First DECT phone I have ever come across that does this.)

And did your batteries "cook"? I bet they didn't.

We're talking about slow chargers here. I'm not denying that fast chargers need to take more care, but you seem to be getting the two mixed up. Or are you saying that batteries that have been previously charged in "intelligent" chargers subsequently charge "more quickly"? How exactly?

See my previous posting.
#28
By the way, before you get too carried away slagging off this charger, note that it does have overcharging protection.
#29
Delta-V monitoring chargers makes sure that each individual battery is charged to capacity when you take it out, improve the life of the batteries as they don't overheat (heat kills batteries), and you don't have to wait until your battery is flat before you charge it.

The "overcharging protection" in this Panasonic unit is a timer. It is totally dumb. It applies the same load, for the same time, to whatever you put in it. Imagine if when you went to put air in your car tyre there was no gauge, the pump just added "some more air". :p OK not a perfect analogy, but hopeuflly you get the idea. This is crude technology, the sort of stuff that people don't bother with anymore, once they've tried the alternative and realised its benefits. :whistling:

Your analogy is completely flawed. If you keep adding air to a tyre, it will pop. If you keep adding charge to a battery within its limits, it will not. You may also be getting confused with LiIon cells which are much more sensitive to heat than NiMH cells. I refer you to what I said about DECT phones earlier.

The benefit of a fast charger is that it charges more quickly.

Well, I am not the one making the claims, & have only recently read about it, I never worried too much about it, however I do take your point about Dect Phones, and have to agree I have never had a problem with them. The first ones took NiCads, (Siemens BT "branded"), so not a good indicator; and the last ones also being BT branded went in the bin a lot sooner than they should have, and I got some that work properly, from Panasonic! The difference is, they get regular use every day, so they partly drain, then usually get a top up overnight, so that might mean they are not going to have an over-cooking problem in any case, unlike batteries just left in a charger too long.

I have however thrown several out with problems in the past, such as not taking much charge even after a long period, (which I now wonder if it WAS the long period that caused the problem!) I had blamed it on them being cheap Aldi & Lidl batteries... as only they were affected. (the Only rechargeable batteries I had ever had a significant problem with!) Now, since I have got a far better charger, it partially quickly discharges than fully recharges them and as a result it has "revitalised" 5 of them which had the same symptoms and they now take a very healthy charge every time!

Either way, it is not a serious problem, as they still last pretty well, and are still a major bargain when compared to disposables :-)

wot batteries can someone recommend? gonna be using it for the 360 most of the time... and maybe need a couple of AAA for other appliances

The drawback is that they are relatively expensive, and with "New technology" slow discharge ones, you don't have to worry about getting them charged up quickly, they will most likely be usable weeks later, if you adopt the one simple discipline and charge them as soon as you take them out of whatever gadget you were using them in.

It means a cheap charger will get a new user started off with rechargeables, and get a return on their outlay, saving money very quickly, although I do think it wise to buy a more sophisticated charger from some of those savings, pretty soon. For one thing, when you work out what it has saved you, you will be buying more rechargeables to replace every gadget you had used disposables in!

However quick a fast charger is, if you use standard NiMH cells, you will still have SOME wait, even if it is only 15 minutes, so the temptation is to have spare disposables handy for those occasions when you just can not wait and you need to dash out of the door, or worse buy them from somewhere over-priced like a garage or convenience store! :-(

My answer for almost every situation now is slow discharge ones Eneloop/Hybrio/Recycko/Instants, as although a little lower in capacity than standard type, they hold their charge really well, and will be always ready to use if left charged for a while, just like disposable batteries would be The are also ideal for remote controls, cameras, whatever really. If you use a set of batteries EVERY day, and charge them meticulously every day too (without forgetting!), then the standard ones will give more power, but that situation doesn't apply to many people!

Been a few deals on here recently, cheapest currently is this:
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/516714/duracell-rechargable-active-charge-
but is dependent on having a B&M store that has them!

I personally buy Vapextech Instants as they are always low priced, although occasionally they have been beaten by others having particular deals:
http://www.vapextech.co.uk/acatalog/High_Power_Consumer_Batteries.html
the GREEN ones, as the others are the higher powered, but faster self discharging type. I am advised they can also be got cheaper on auctions sites, but I haven't bought them that way, although when I buy some more I may well double check at the time!

It's £2.99 you cannot buy a similarly speched charger for less, that's why it's a bargain so stop your tiresome moaning. An intelligent charger that costs £15-£25 does a better job? Really? At that price I never would have guessed...

Yes, but not very quickly, (reviews suggest 8 to 10 hours) and it appears to only charge AAAs 2 at a time for some reason!

Hi mate.

Have some rep for providing helpful info! :thumbsup:

Can you provide a link to a decent deal on a Delta-V monitoring charger please?

Thanks.

Sure. ;-)

On the same site (7Dayshop) there are a number of 'intelligent' chargers at fair prices. This £6.29 one ticks all the boxes :-

Intelligent chargers do what you would expect of a battery charger :

"An intelligent charger may monitor the battery's voltage, temperature and/or time under charge to determine the optimum charge current at that instant. Charging is terminated when a combination of the voltage, temperature and/or time indicates that the battery is fully charged."

That's exactly what you want from a charger isn't it. Why accept less? For the sake of a few pounds, they give major improvements in battery performance, life, and convenience over the alternatives.
