Individual microprocessor controlled charging for each battery insures just the right charge every time. The PowerEx C401FS battery charger rapidly charges NiMH rechargeable AA / AAA batteries in under 100 minutes, coolly and efficiently. Includes AC adapter & cigarette-lighter car adapter.
"Whether you're a professional photographer who has several sets of batteries for your flash units, or just a person who has several digital devices which need a steadfast charger, the MH-C401FS is a very inexpensive way to make your life easier."
"Overall, the C401FS looks like a nearly perfect battery charger for digicam enthusiasts.. Very highly recommended. - Don't think twice."
"PowerEx's MH-C401FS 100 Minute Cool Charger was awarded PC Photo's 2002 Editor Choice in its "Top 25 Picks."
Charge AA / AAA NiMH or NiCD batteries in 100 Minutes Accurately and Coolly
Unlike other fast chargers, the PowerEx MH-C401FS allows you to recharge AA & AAA rechargeable batteries (NiMH or NiCD) accurately and coolly, around 100 minutes (AAA charges in around 1 hour).
Unique FLEX negative pulse charging algorithm allow the battery to accept a more complete charge
Regardless of the of battery's capacity, if they cannot be fully charged users would not be able to fully realize the potential of the batteries. The PowerEx MH-C401FS delivers the most complete charge for chargers in its class. The new FLEX negative pulse algorithm also significantly enhances battery life.
FLEX Pulse also makes traditional "battery conditioning & cycling" unnecessary as the pulse eliminates the memory effect just by charging the batteries.
Manually Switch between 100 minute fast charge and 5 hour gentle charge
The MH-C401FS is also the first charger on the market to offer the choice between a 100-minute rapid charge and a slower, gentler 5-hour charge, both driven by a microprocessor termination control to prevent overcharge. Accomplished by simply flipping a switch, the 5 hour gentle charge achieves ultra-cool charging when charging time is not crucial.
100 Minute Rapid Charge
5 Hour Gentle Charge
Advantage: Extremely fast recharge time
Advantage: Cooler battery charging and extends overall battery life.
Four Independent Charging Circuits
Unlike some ultra-fast chargers on the market, the MH-C401FS charger has four independently controlled channels to charge and monitor each battery individually. This allows each battery to be charged to its full potential without risk of overcharging. The charger can charge one, two, three or four batteries.
