Good find edi...ideal for digital cameras

Usually dispatched within 1 to 2 weeks

Decent deal. I got the 15 miuite ever ready one with 4 batteries for a similar price a couple of months back.

7dayshop has a better looking deal @ £8.99 for 4 x 2600 AA batteries and a fast charger. It's their own brand though so might not be as good, although I've bought their own brand batteries before and they've worked fine;

They charge £3.95 for delivery, although that is for the entire order, so I tend to but a few items at a time.

I got one of these had it about 6 months now and I paid around 24 quid then and it is a fantastic charger...It does exactly what it says on the tin it charges AA and AAA Batteries in less than an hour with no fuss...:thumbsup:

Best charger I ever had I tell ye....:)

Is that 4 x AA or AAA batteries in 1 hours or just 1 battery in an hour ?

Thanks

There's not mention of how many batteries it charges on its description is why i ask, I've seen chargers advertised as 1 hour chargers but they then go on to say its only for 1 battery.

Charges all four at the same time in less than an hour...:)

Does it have a sensor to measure if the battery is fully charged or do I have to time it? can i charge 2 batteries for example or do I have to charge all 4? And last but not least, are there special 1 hour batteries or can I use any Ni-MH....I have load of AAA NI-MH (low mAh) batteries that i would love to use for remote controls and such

I was about to ask if it charges the AAA batteries but crazylegs has answered (yes) to that already, thanks

Yes it does have sensors and will automatically turn each battery cell onto trickle charge when each battery is done...

Its very intelligent and even knows if a battery is half charged already..

You can charge 1 or any amount at any time..

You can use any battery you don't need special ones..

Hope that helps you all....:thumbsup:

Can anyone tell me what the difference is between this model and the cheaper £11.99 Model ]discussed here?

Unfortunately not: uniross.com/upl…pdf

2 or 4 only. This does not have individual cell charging or monitoring. Personally I wouldnt buy one without that because you end up under charging one battery if the other in the pair charges more quickly. Most modern chargers do monitor the cells individually, so I would look for one which does.

Thanks for the info & welcome to HUKD apreading

You can charge only in pairs.

Don't know about the quality of the charger but the batteries with the 16.99 one are better. The power level really can make a massive difference - I bought some 2300's a couple of years ago and would never go back to low power ones - 2700's should be even better.

Well my one charges any solo battery individually, as you put the battery in it lights and starts charging and its the same model as this one..

so up to you lot if you wanna take my advice....

It must depend on what you use the batteries for, as I use 2300 and 2500 mAh, but have found that cheapo 800 mAh batteries from poundland (4 AA for £1), sometimes last longer.

BTW, i have this charger and have found it to be excellent. Paid about £25 for it 18 months ago.

I was deciding between the 2 (1hour vs 15 minutes) and I actually ordered the 15 minutes one but I cancelled the order and got the 1 hour.

Although the 15 min one has a cooling fan but I think it will push high power and might ruin the batteries or wont work properly with all batteries. The down side with the 1 hour is how you have to charge them in pairs (that's from the manual but crazylegs who owns this says that he charges single batteries), but most electronic devices uses pairs of 2 now.

The 1 hour seems like a safer option especially that it has been tested for 18 months (by skdotcom) and it is working well (That's an opinion based on "my own" engineering common sense

Please remember .... with great powers comes great responsibility :-D

Might have to get one of these. My Wii motes seem to eat my batteries. Rechargeable is the way to go!

I own 20 of these Uniross 2700mAh batteries and they are absolutely terrible and incredibly poor quality. The seams split very easily when they are fast charged causing a worry about leakage. And believe me, on a 1 hour charge they get very very hot.

I now use the Energizer 2500mAh rechargeables with their 8 hour charger (does 4 at a time). You can pick them up on a popular auction website at very good prices. I have over 40 of them now and I will never go back.

Incidentally, despite being 2500mAh they last much longer in my digital camera than the Uniross 2700mAh ones (over 2x as long)

It is expected that they get hot on the 1 hour charger comparing to the 8 hours charger and I am sure it will be worst with the 15 minutes charger although it has a builtin fan. 1 Hour is ok for me comparing to 15 minutes, but 8 hours is little ...too much :whistling:

Well with a young child in the house I would rather wait 8 hours than risk having a battery explode. And yes when rechargeable batteries overheat, they have a nasty habit of exploding with very nasty consequences.

I get around the 8 hour charge problem by having a large quantity of the batteries and any not in use are always either in the charger or fully charged.

Still available Thanks for this edi :pirate:

I have 2700mAh AA batteries and charge on a slow charger for 24hrs - this way they don't cook , last longer and will have a longer life. These fast chargers ar only good for occasional use

Rubbish I've been using mine at least twice a week for the last six months and my batteries haven't split leaked or anything else, and are still as good as the day I first got them..

When was the last time you heard someone was maimed by a flying exploding battery, I never have yet...:roll:

I have the Uniross 15 min sprint charger (as covered in another thread) and this one has an automatic cut off once the battery is fully charged. This avoids overheating and damaging the battery. Make sure the charger has the safety cut out and problems should be avoided.

This one has a sensor for each pair (from manual). It's really about personal choice and confident. I didn't like the 1 hour chargers before and I thought the were the scary ones while the 8 hours chargers are safe, but now I believe the techonology is different and 1 hour is the norm while the 15 minutes is the scary one. I am sure 1 hour chargers will push lots of power so maybe not all batteries can take the "heat".
