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.

Watson 8LCD-AAK Reviews

Battery Charger Worked Well

By Burdette
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-18

tried charging 6 rechargeable AAA cordless phone batteries using my new charger. unfortunately, i think that since the batteries were 4 years old, even though the charger recharged them to full capacity, they weren't able to be successfully used again in my phones. so even though the charger performed well, the end result was poor. the charger did recharge the batteries in less than 1 hour which was very quick.

Disappointed

I think I got a dud. The screens went out pretty quickly (within 6 months) but it still worked for a while. It's officially trash after 2 years.

Great charger

Most important for me is that it charges an individual battery at a time, such as if you have devices that use an odd amount. The cheaper chargers must do two at a time.

Great too for every photographer

Love it.

Having used this charger a lot. It is a little slow but I guess that is to be expected with the number of batteries it charges.
