It’s a bargain when you think of the long term benefits of rechargeable batteries. It’s better than getting a cheap none branded one from Poundland and having to keep replacing it every 6 months or so.

I don't think so. These "fast chargers" will wreck your rechargeable batteries in no time compared to a good charger that can slow charge. They are great for companies like Energizer and Duracell though who want you to keep having to buy their batteries over and over. This is a "sucker deal". Sorry OP, but voting cold on this one.

Well, I was looking for a replacement for my old Maha charger (which I love!) which I could no longer get to work with AAAs, and was recommended the "Nitecore" range which I was led to believe could slow charge, but it turned out that that only applied to Li rechargeables. As it turns out I found a work around with my old Maha charger and also found it still selling on Amazon:

amazon.co.uk/Mah…ger

There is also a more expensive version that will do other battery types if you need that feature.

While they are both quite expensive compared to the deal being offered here, I've only recently started discarding NiMh batteries that I bought well over a decade ago, so you will save in the long term as long as you treat your batteries well.

This ones actually not a fast charger, does it 3 to 5 hours. Compare you your 15/45/60mins chargers. And a safety timer to prevent overcharging, to help batteries have a longer lifespan.

The description is not very clear what it can and what it can't do. Can you choose to slow/soft charge? What does "3 to 5 hours" mean? I'm always weary of these minimal descriptions now! It might just apply to C or D cells, when that's the kind of charging time I'm looking for with AAAs! If you want to preserve battery lifespan then it's not just about overcharging..

Also it's lacking a "reconditioning" feature (unlike the Maha I recommended) which will further increase the lifespan of your batteries.

Many thanx for taking the time to recommend the Maha, have been reading the reviews most good but some not so good. Looks like I’ll have to do a bit of research before committing to spend 80-100 pounds on batteries ( that’ll be including some of the rechargeable batteries mainly AA,AAA & D ). Have bookmarked the Maha, now need to find a good deal! Again THANK YOU

Glad I could help. It does sound like there is the occasional dud, but if you get a good one it should last for at least a decade or two as mine has. The independent charging circuits also make life so much easier. With other chargers you are often restricted to 2 or 4 batteries of the same type, which means you are stuck if you want to only charge 1 or 3 cells (stupid!). With the Maha you can mix and match all you like. Obviously I'm assuming the C/D cell version is similar to the AA/AAA version I own, but I think it's a fairly safe assumption.

I'm also planning to buy another as a spare in case mine gives up the ghost and they stop selling them.
Can anyone recommend a charger that has a built in plug so dont need to use a seperate powers supply
Is it better than this one?
hotukdeals.com/dea…396

£10 and comes with 4 batteries
I do wish more people would buy stuff like this instead of continually buying 20 or 30 packs of disposables and throwing them in the bin afterwards. Causes so much unnecessary (toxic) landfill waste.
