Good price but they are being a bit flexible with there description saying it's an ultra fast charger with charge times of 2 hours plus :whistling:.

Surely ultrafast should be 15 minutes+

Its a good charger - the only thing I can fault it on is it runs on two circuits - so you can fry a good battery if put in with a dud one. This applies to most chargers though as there are very few with individual circuits for each battery at prices a couple of multiples of this.

Still HOT though..

But consider this too...

7dayshop.com/cat…805

,,,as even with the excessive 4 quid postage added - its will make your batteries last longer per charge and have greater longevity at well under 50% the price of similar spec chargers.

Interesting, and thanks. So where's the cheapest 15 minute charger that we could rely on not to fry our batteries then?

Wilkinson have 4x AA Hybrio batteries for £6.49 and a free charger while stocks last.

The charger's a cheapy one, it only charges 2 batteries at a time and takes half a day but you can't really complain for free. The Hybrio batteries are excellent, we've replaced most of our aging 2500mAh NIMH batteries with the 2100 Hybrios, the fact that they're always charged is extremely convienient when using in kids toys and you need to keep a couple of sets charged and spare.

Generally the faster a battery is charged - the more its life is shortened - so its a balance between the two.

Loads of things influence the battery's life though - including levels of charge, overcharging, levels of discharge, and heat.

The Tesla electric sports car (electric Lotus Elise basically) released this year uses thousands of batteries not much larger than AAs - and hopes to get a couple of years life out of them by never charging them to capacity nor letting them discharge entirely - and the car will make you select an emergency option if the charge on the battery falls too low but you cannot stop to recharge where you are. It also has cooling for the battery compartment.

There is a newish thing called pulse charging - that is used to charge faster and often has a fan cooling the batteries while this is happening - but I dont know enough about it yet to say if this works or is just hype.

'Professional' chargers made by Maha, La Cross etc often have displays where you can set the actual rate of charge, and will offer loads on info on the charge the battery took and obviously charge each battery independently. But you are looking at 40ish quid for these and they are not readily available - although Maplin does rebadged versions for about 50-70 quid i think.

Generally the best thing to look for is individual charging, as this means the average of two batteries is not applied. DeltaV checks for the change in voltage during the charge so is reliable, as is monitoring the temperature of batteries, but it depends upon how this is done.

Cheap chargers just use a timer, or nothing at all.

Nothing at all can be OK if its a solar charger - as I have suspected if these are kept out of direct sunlight they would work well to keep a battery topped up, but I have not bought one to test for this - but have one one for the cars.

Sorry I cannot offer more definitive help.

I bought some of these earlier in the year, and found them to be next to useless...LOL.

I intended to use them in my camera (Oly750), which I have had for several years. These batteries do not hold their charge. They are OK if you use them immediately, but left in the camera, or bag as spares, they are unusable within the week.

My Camedia batteries that came with the camera lasts for months.

I have since bought some cheap 2100mAh from Aldis, about £2.50 for set of four, Ni MH..Active energy, and found those to last as long as my original Camedia ones..

My conclusion from this is I will never bother with UniRoss again!

To be fair, generally the newer higher capacity batteries have shorter shelf lives than the older ones - this has partly been the reason for the appearance of 'eneloop' and 'hybrio' types which have lower capacities but keep their charge.

However, instead of buying these - you can get a dozen of the older type from Maplin currently for a tenner - yet everyone slated the post!!

Strange, as I have totally opposite experience with this batteries. I have been using them for my digital camera, and they last for ages, and no matter how long they stay in camera unused.

ok if you need a charger but Hybrids are almost always the better buy.

Hey marcosdjcm,

I just wanted to check the views of you guys on this product. Sorry!! Not from this buyer or at this price. :oops:

This product is available in my Local B&Q for £9.99, but with 6 batteries instead of the usual 4.
