Vivitar VIV-BC-ALK reviews

BC-ALK Series 1 Alkaline/NiMH Battery Charger is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from So-so Although this charger DOES actually recharge alkaline batteries safely, it often stops before the battery is actually full, requiring multiple charge cycles to fully charge the battery. It also incorrectly identified a set of good Ni-MH batteries as alkalines. Note that fully charged for an alkaline battery is 1.55-1.60V, after it has had a couple hours to settle after the charge. I also recommend recharging before the battery drops below 1.3V, or else it may be too far gone to be brought back to life. If the battery will not charge up over 1.5V after a few charge cycles, it is toast.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Questionable Product Support Didn't work on receipt. Returned to Vivitar in NJ with their return authorization number. No Response for a month. Contacted Vivitar. Please get back to us with the tracking number, So we could have a check and escalate the issue to the concern department on High priority. They lost the record of the receipt of the package. I provided a USPS tracking showing they received it three days after I sent it to them. Still haven't received the product even though they said it would be shipped with High Priority. Product support is not the best. I gave the lowest rating since it has been over a month since I purchased and paid for this and still do not know if it performs as advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AT LAST A VERSATILE CHARGER! This charger revitalizes regular AAA/AA alkaline batteries as well as charges NiMH rechargeable batteries.It also automatically detects the type of battery inserted.These features are well worth its price!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would not recommend this product Upon receipt, the unit did not work. There was power to the plug, but no response from the unit. The unit was returned to the warrantee provider and a new unit was received. Using a multi-meter, I selected to recharge four alkaline batteries with at least a voltage of 0.9v. The batteries were left in the unit for 72 hours; lights blinking and ony one socket showing that the battery was being charged. After removing the batteries, none showed an increase of the battery voltage of any more than 0.1v. If there was a lower rating than one star, I would so rate this equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money well spent Recharging alkaline batteries is just great! After the charge they are good as new. They say you can charge each battery up to 80 times. Didn't get quite there yet, but even if it is possible to recharge batteries half as much will mean signifficant economy with the purchase of new batteries. This charger will pay itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really charges alkaline and NIMH batteries! Easy. Charges many brands of alkaline and NIHM batteries. Black indicator means battery is dead, red is charging, green is ready to use. Each bay charges independently. Great value. Useful for a family all year round. 100-240v. Wall adapter cable allows you to move it around.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from DOESN'T LIVE UP TO EXPECTATIONS This is a good charger for rechargeable batteries. The Alkaline ones, not so good. It makes them usable again but for a short time. Some that were part of the same device doesn't want to improve at all. Forget about charging alkaline batteries. It mostly doesn't work.
