Ansmann 5207442/US-590 overview

  • 1Description

Power a wide range of electronic devices, and replenish that power when you need to, with the Energy 8 Plus Charger and maxE PRO AA NiMH Battery Kit from Ansmann. This bundle combines the 100-240 VAC, microprocessor-controlled charger with 4 maxE Pro rechargeable AA NiMH cells, each of which has 1.2V of output power, a 1900-2000mAh capacity, and a 2.28-2.4Wh rating.

  • Energy 8 Plus Battery Charger (100-240V)

    The Energy-8 Desktop Charger from Ansmann is suitable for NiCd and NiMH rechargeable batteries where each cell is charged independently. It can handle 1-6 AAA or AA cells, 1-4 C or D cells in addition to 1- 2  9V E-block batteries. You can also charge different size batteries at the same time. The unit features an auto-diagnosis system of the inserted cells with automatic start of a refreshing process and/or pre-charging process. Over charge protection is provided in addition to a faulty cell detection system. You can full or trickle charge your batteries as desired. The unit is dual voltage and can be used worldwide.

    Charges all NiCd/NiMH cells - AAA, AA, C, D, 9V
    Charging currents: 1000mA for AA, C and D cells, 400mA for AAA cells and 60mA for 9V blocks
    Individual supervision of each cell position
    Auto-diagnosis of the inserted cells with automatic start of a refreshing process and/or pre-charging process, if required
    Faulty cell detection
    Alkaline battery detection
    Switch mode power supply for worldwide use (100-240V wide range input)
    Damaged cells will be detected and discharged before fast charging
    Progress indicator lights for each cell
    Automatically switches to trickle charge as each cells reaches full charge
  • Rechargeable maxE PRO AA NiMH Batteries (1.2V, 2000mAh, 4-Pack)

    Power digital cameras, video game controllers, flashlights, and many more portable electronics with this 4-pack of 1.2V Rechargeable maxE PRO AA NiMH Batteries from Ansmann. Each has a capacity of 2000mAh and comes pre-charged. Additionally, the batteries are virtually free of memory effect, so the full capacity will continue to be usable after each charge cycle.

    The maxE PRO AAs can be charged safely at a high current, which significantly speeds up the charging process. Thanks to a separator that greatly reduces unwanted internal current flow, the cells have a very low self-discharge rate that is just a tenth of the rate seen in many other NiMH batteries. As a result, they will still hold about 80% of their initial charge after a year in storage.

Ansmann 5207442/US-590 reviews

Energy 8 Plus Charger and maxE PRO AA NiMH Battery Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from As big as War & Peace I didn't pay very much attention to the specs; I just needed another charger with a set of AA's and the brand and price was attractive. Two major minus's for this product: the charger itself is enormous, plus it has a separate transformer thingy, so there's no way this thing is going on location in a camera bag, and secondly, it only accommodates 6 AA's at a time ( not 8), so what were they thinking! Should have just bought another charger that does 4 AA's and left it at that. I'd return it but the return postage is half the price of just keeping it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent multi-cell battery charger! I am very happy with this charger. It charges the five most common battery types (AAA, AA, C, D, 9V) that can be re-charged. The charging unit is easy to operate right out of the box and works with either 110V(cable included) or 220V(separate cable required). The batteries charge quickly and without too much heat generated. I wish the charger had a cover to keep dust/cats out, but that is a minor concern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Universal charger. Easy to use Universal charger. Easy to use for AAA,AA, D and C batteries
Date published: 2017-01-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool Pro: fast charge, you can add bateries of different size, has a 5 seconds 3 levels check on the battery capacity - green, yellow and red for 80%, 50% and low. Con- a bit bulky and difficult to carry around in your bag. - has a red and green light indicator for charged and charging. A bit difficult for color blind or discromic to see the difference. A light on or off would be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as ever I have been using an Ansmann Energy 8 Plus Charger for many years to my full satisfaction. Over the past few months some bays ceased functioning (as can be expected from an "antique") . The special price offered for this model at the launching of a newer model made me buy two of the Energy 8 Plus chargers. I see absolutely no reason to upgrade to anything "newer and better". This charger is excellent compared to many others. It has made my batteries (mostly Ansmann ones ) last for many years. An excellent charger indeed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great charger Great charger and excellent price. It quickly charges the batteries for my camera flash and computer mouse - I have only charged AA and AAA, so far, but it will also change C and 9V. Plenty of indicator lights (one for each battery charging) to let you know the status.
Date published: 2017-03-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice! I was expecting JUST a recharger with a couple batteries. It turns out this will not only charge AA, AAA, C, D, but 9V batteries and is able to correct some battery problems along with a trickle charge. Great German product if it lives up to all its claims.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk Worst battery charger ever. Gets hot while charging then frys itself after awhile. Don't wast your money. Last less then one year with very lite use.
