Product Highlights
  • Charge 1-4 AA/ AAA NiMH/ NiCD Batteries
  • 100- or 60-Minute Rapid Charge Time
  • 5-hr Gentle Charge Time
  • Prevents Overcharging, Memory Effects
  • Extends Overall Battery Life
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty

The Maha MH-C401FS 100 Min Cool Charger with Car Adapter from Powerex charges 1-4 AA or AAA NiMH or NiCD batteries in approximately 100 (AA) or 60 (AAA) minutes, while keeping them cool. As an alternative to this rapid charge method, it allows for a slower, 5-hour gentle charge to keep batteries extra-cool when charging time is not a critical issue. The gentle charge also extends overall battery life.

Both methods are driven by a microprocessor termination control, in order to prevent overcharging. The unique FLEX negative pulse charging algorithm enables the battery to accept a more complete charge, significantly enhancing battery life. The pulse eliminates memory effects, making conventional battery conditioning and cycling obsolete. Four independently-controlled channels charge and monitor each battery individually, charging it to its full potential without risking overcharging. The charger is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

        This product is used to recharge the appropriate AA & AAA rechargable batteries. The product performs as advertised and this replacement is now being sold without a cover to eliminate overheating. This duplicate replacement charger performend very well until age rendered it inoperable.

          I bought this as a replacement for an identical one that I destroyed by accidentally trying to recharge non-rechargable alkaline batteries. I can't count how many batteries I would have had to buy to replace the ones I've recharged in the last 6 years or so. For max battery life, be sure to recharge them on the "slow" setting as much as possible. I do like the fact that the AC adapter "wall wart" is much smaller than the previous one had.

            Comments about Powerex Maha MH-C401FS 100 Min Cool Charger with Car Adapter:

            I think this charger is well worth the money. I've ruined quite a few NIMH batteries from constantly quick charging, or over charging them. This charger gives you the option of slow (easy on the batteries) or quick charging, and then trickle charges after that. It also lets you know when a battery is no longer good so you're not wasting time charging a battery that won't hold a charge. I've also had many chargers that charge 4 at a time, but not with individual analysis, so you have to guess and try to match them up with like batteries when you charge them. No worries with this charger since it evaluates each battery on it's own. Also, it has a car adaptor so I can charge batteries on my camping trips.

              Charges 4 AA or AAA cells with individual cell monitoring. Not as fancy (or bulky) as the other MAHA chargers but does the job!

                  The individual channels let me charge one or more batteries, and manages each of them as needed. The smart trickle mode means that I can leave batteries in the charger for days until I need them. I only use it on 5 hour mode to avoid any degradation to battery life that faster, hotter charge rates may cause.

                  It lacks a refresh function or capacity measurements like the more expensive models, but it has a great reputation for a simple, reliable charger.
