Charges 8 AA/AAA at once - plus USB devices.

Uniross Pom 8x AA/AAA battery charger + USB Device charger. Price is obtained by using "LAST20" code at checkout. Seems quite a useful charger for the price (and if you look around Google some other sellers have it at eye watering prices!)

Video review here :-http://www.geekanoids.co.uk/reviews/2010/7/2/uniross-pom-energy-centre-review.html

Don't forget Quidco too.

Some blurb :-

The Uniross Pom is a unique and stylish new battery charger that looks more like a desktop sculpture than a battery charging station! With its flawless white shell and sleek curves the Uniross Pom is an exciting eco-friendly energy centre that can recharge up to 8 batteries at the same time. It comes with four AA rechargable batteries to start you off. It is perfect for devices that use both AA and AAA batteries. Place this product proudly on your desk and its unique design will stand proudly out against other office equipment. Not only is the Pom perfect for the charging of separate rechargeable batteries but it can also directly recharge mobile phones, MP3 players and PDAs via a USBcable. No longer will you feel the urge to hide your battery charge underneath your desk beside plug sockets and excess cables. It is so pleasing on the eye that this product makes battery charging less of a chore and more of a pleasure.

Just a note - the 4 batteries that come with this are the Hybrio type (stay charged). I bought some from Ebay in packs (called Battery Pockets). I think that this POM idea didn't take off so they had plenty of the batteries that went with them to get rid of - and it looks like this charger is part of a clearout too. I am not sure if the charger is any good though. It doesn't state that it is an intelligent charger and looking at a review on YouTube it looks not to be as there is only one charging light per pair of batteries :

It looks like it is more style than substance

Thanks Searcher2 for establishing what it isn't - but I'm sure the question is whether it's a bargain for what it is - and I think it may well be. USB charging and 8 batteries at the same time? I'd have still bought it without the 'hybrio' batteries (whatever they are) at this price.

Sorry Dilbert if I appeared negative. The fact the batteries are Hybrio type in my opinion is good - and themselves are worth £4-5. Indeed if you want to charge 8 batteries at once and/or want a to charge something via USB without switching your PC on it is good....especially as it's only costing £6ish effectively.

However, I am someone who has purchased at least 4 'cheaper' battery chargers in the past and now I have what I consider a decent charger I realise that buying cheap can mean paying more in the long run. My 'decent' charger cost £15 and charges batteries individually (thus won't over or under cook your batteries). I now get over 8 hours in my radio out of them when I was getting 2 or less with my previous intelligent charger. It even revived batteries I thought were knackered previously (using the discharge feature).

Looking at the original £50 price tag you could be forgiven for thinking you were getting a really decent charger - but I can't see how it can be. If you want the looks, the USB charging or ability to "charge" 8 batteries at once it's a bargain. If you want to charge batteries properly there are probably better options (which cost more than £6).

lol, I totally read that as 'porn charger'.
Nonetheless, a good deal :)

Couldn't agree more :-)

The prices that some of the other sellers are trying to flog it for are ridiculous - as are their claims to the original RRP. Saying that, the amount of discount doesn't reflect the value of a bargain - it's how well it performs for the buyer (and I'll post back with that info in a few days when I've tried it!)

In this case though they did try to get the RRP and in fact one place is selling it for more than the RRP at £72.98!!!

I hope it is a good charger for you but you won't be able to tell after a few days as chargers like this (or like I think it is) will make batteries suffer from memory-effect ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_effect ) which means they will deteriorate over time.

It looks like this charger charges in pairs... so consider that you put 2 batteries in - one almost fully charged and the other not (and you have no way of knowing unless you have some sort of capacity meter). Both are being charged at the same rate for the same time so presumably either one gets 'overcharged' or one gets undercharged.

It's not a dig at this offer as it is by far the cheapest you can get this gear for ...but I think it is a genuine money saving tip to get a really good charger. In the case of this charger I am not sure what makes it 'Eco' over any other charger.

Not bad at all but I think I'll keep mine behind the settee if I order one... Looks ruddy awful! Heheh!!!

Got mine today. Brilliantly matches my iMac setup & charges 8 batteries at a time ( an absolute necessity as my computerised telescope takes 8 x AA's). Well done Op a good find. Heat.
