Features

Overview: The Energizer Recharge CHDCWB-4 Compact Charging Kit features a portable, compact "travel size" Ni-MH battery charger with foldable plug and comes supplied with 4 "AA" 2300 mAh Ni-MH rechargeable batteries. The charger has a tray that slides in and out, and the prongs of the AC plug fold inward for easy storage.

Charger Operation: The Ni-MH portable battery charger will charge "AA" Ni-MH batteries up to 2650mAh and "AAA" Ni-MH batteries up to 1000mAh. It can charge up to 4 Ni-MH batteries at once with 700mA of charging current. The estimated charging times are:

Ni-MH Battery Size Rated Capacity (mAh) Estimated Charging Time
AA 2650 4 hours
AA 2300 3.5 hours
AA 2000 3 hours
AAA 850 1.5 hours

Indicator Icons: The charger has 4 battery icons on the top, each with 2 LEDs, to indicate the charging status for each battery independently. While charging, the icons will blink, initially with one, then two LEDs over time to indicate charging progress. When fully charged, the battery icon will glow solid color. If the battery is bad, the icon will rapidly flash both LEDs.

Automatic Shut-Off: The charger's automatic shut-off feature turns off the charging current to prevent overcharging the batteries. Therefore, batteries will not be damaged if left in the charger for a longer time.

Reverse Polarity Protection: This feature guards the charger and batteries from damage if batteries are inserted incorrectly.

Universal Voltage: The charger features a universal AC plug that will work with 100 to 240 (50/60Hz) AC voltage.

4 Supplied Ni-MH Batteries: The Energizer Recharge 1.2V Nickel Metal Hydride "AA" rechargeable batteries are rated at 2300mAh, lasting up to 4 times longer in digital cameras, compared to Energizer MAX alkaline batteries. They also hold more charge after 12 months, and can be charged up to 250 more times than previous Energizer rechargeable batteries (AA, 2450 mAh).

Small Package / Big Punch

Written By Jeff R, Sacramento, CA on Monday, April 30, 2012

This little charger is perfect for the traveler or environmentally conscious AA or AAA battery user. It is a compact, lightweight unit about the size of a deck of cards that can charge 4 batteries at a time. I use it to keep my underwater strobe batteries charged while on scuba diving trips. Plug it into the wall and it'll easily recharge your batteries overnight ready for the next day. When closed and not in use it's very compact. Slide it open to accept batteries when charging. Wouldn't travel without it.

Pros: Excellent for recharging AA or AAA rechargeable batteries. Great for travel. Don't throw away your old batteries in the landfill - use rechargeable.

Cons: None
