The charger's intelligent microprocessor doles out the full amount of juice to each battery while preventing overcharging, thanks to Delta Voltage Protection. The Safety Timer with Automatic Timer Shut-Off senses when batteries are at full capacity and ceases charging. Automatic Charge Current Selection is programmed to choose the optimal current for batteries, while Reverse Polarity Protection, Alkaline, and Bad Battery Protection safeguard the charger and batteries against damage when AAs or AAAs are installed improperly. There's also a discharge function, allowing you to refresh the batteries prior to charging.

The Chroma AA NiMH Batteries come in red, pink, orange, yellow, green, teal, blue, and purple. They feature excellent high-drain performance and can be recharged up to 500 times. In an effort to be eco-conscious, Watson has produced these cells with a mercury-free chemistry. The included plastic cases hold 4 batteries each, and are small enough to fit into virtually any pocket. They are also equipped with attachment points enabling you to link them together.

Watson 8-Bay Rapid Charger for AA / AAA NiMH or NiCd Rechargeable Batteries

The Watson 8-Bay Rapid Charger for AA / AAA NiMH or NiCd Rechargeable Batteries charges up to 8 AA or AAA size nickel-metal hydride or nickel-cadmium rechargeable batteries. Charging time ranges from 3.6-4.6 hr for AA batteries, and 1.6-2 hr for AAA's. Eight individual LCD indicators give the charging status for each battery. Patented technology permits the charging of different sizes and types of battery simultaneously--charge a AA with a AAA, or an NiMH with an NiCd.

The charger's intelligent microprocessor doles out the full charge to each battery while preventing overcharging, thanks to Delta Voltage Protection. The Safety Timer with Automatic Timer Shut-Off senses when batteries are fully charged and ceases charging. Automatic Charge Current Selection automatically chooses the optimal current for the batteries you're charging. Reverse Polarity Protection and Alkaline and Bad Battery Protection safeguard the charger and your batteries against damage when batteries are installed improperly. There's also a discharge function, allowing you to refresh the batteries prior to charging.

The charger features an icon that shifts up and down during discharging, and stops shifting when discharge is complete. This icon also displays battery capacity while charging. The full-battery icon lights up when the batteries are fully charged. A flashing full-battery icon indicates an abnormality, such as the presence of a bad or alkaline battery, and at this point the charger will cease its operation. The charger is powered by an included external AC adapter with switching 100-240V power for worldwide use, or by the 12-24V DC cord which can plug into your car's cigarette lighter for charging on-the-go.

My older Enercell charger had to charge batteries in pairs, would often not charge low batteries unless you could trick it and only did NiMH batteries. This charger will charge single cells which I really wanted. I have several devices that use odd numbers of batteries. It will charge batteries my old charger wouldn't charge. I like the discharge/charge feature to cycle batteries that don't get much use. I use it primarily with Eneloop batteries and it works great. It also does NiCad batteries. The discharge / charge feature would be perfect for NiCads which are much fussier... If I had any :)

Price worth

Charger seems to do a fine job. The instructions with the charger seem unclear but perhaps I should just know whether or not I should discharge the batteries each time before recharging??

You'd think it would simply work, but.....

Started using rechargeable batteries so bought this to bulk charge them for my flash and battery pack. Maybe used this device a dozen times and then it became dysfunctional. Yes, I asked Watson to replace it as it clearly is a defective product. But they simply denied as it was past its warranty. No pride in the product. The idea is to keep customers, not push them away. Avoid this device and avoid the company. There are many other choices.

wonderful

Yes, this would work fine. Just be sure that you're charging NiMH or NiCd batteries and not Lithium batteries.
