This is an easy to use "smart charger".
I have recomended this to all my friends and family.
I use two of these to charge, maintain and balance my supply of Enloop batteries mostly for camera/flash use .

PRO's

*Each bay charges/discharges one battery independantly.
*Easy to read display (double as a night light)
*More advanced features avail. to make batteries function at peak performance.
*Huge amount of information about this charger online ie.CPF, strobist,ect.
*Multiple safety cut offs.
*1st voltage check shows batt. internal resistance
( FYI )

CONS

*Price point is higher (most quality things are).
*Default charge rate is too high for most AAA I use 400mah for my 800mah batt.
*very poor manual translation.
* More Americans don't use Rechargable Batteries
and throw away TONS of alkalines into landfills -ok rant over ;)

Came with defective power adapter!

It didn't work from the first day I plugged it in, the whole display just continuously flashing non-stop until it was unplugged. Pushing the buttons in any other combinations never make a difference. My last resort was to return it back to B&H for replacement or refund. But that option wasn't very attractive because of the shipping cost from Canada. Then I thought of trying a different power adapter that has the same spec, and it was proved to be the solution! As soon as I plugged it into my own power adapter, everything just worked flawlessly, I condition 2 sets of Enalop AA batteries over a 24 hours period without a glitch!

Really neat device for analyzing and reviving old batteries!

Comments about Powerex MH-C9000 WizardOne Charger-Analyzer for 4 AA / AAA NiMH / NiCD Batteries:

I've owned a good dozen 8-packs of Powerex 2700 mAh AA batteries for three years now, and I don't use them a ton, but I wanted to check their condition. Enter this charger- first I checked a group of freshly-charged batteries and found them to be reporting in at 1300 mAh! Before I replaced 100 AA batteries to the tune of $200, I decided to give the "analyze/refresh" option a try. It takes 12+ hours for four batteries, but the charger was able to bring the batteries back up to ~2300 mAh in one of those cycles. Took the refreshed AAs for a spin and definitely noticed a performance increase.

It is slow as a charger, but I have 2x 8-battery fast chargers for charging-only duties. Keep it as an analyzer/refresher and you'll get much more life out of your AAs!

Also, the box says it is "from the future," which I love.

Probably the best AA/AAA NiMh/NiCad battery charger availabl

By Robert

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Powerex MH-C9000 WizardOne Charger-Analyzer for 4 AA / AAA NiMH / NiCD Batteries:

I consider this the best AA/AAA NiMH/NiCad battery charger on the market.
If you are simply looking for a plug-and-charge device there are better options at a cheaper price.
But if you want to keep your supply of AA/AAA NiMH/NiCad batteries in excellent health, this is the charger for you.
I specifically bought this because you can operate it from your Car/RV/Boat using a 12volt source. But on looking at the specs I found that the charger could do so much more.

Comments about Powerex MH-C9000 WizardOne Charger-Analyzer for 4 AA / AAA NiMH / NiCD Batteries:

This device is an analyzer that will tell you the truth about your rechargeable AA and AAA batteries. The process is slow but showed me that many of the batteries in my "collection" were not worth saving.

Very nice, easy to use charger

Comments about Powerex MH-C9000 WizardOne Charger-Analyzer for 4 AA / AAA NiMH / NiCD Batteries:

This is an exceptional battery charger, Don't be intimidated by the various cycles this charger is capable of if you are fairly new to rechargeable batteries. You can always just pop your batteries in and accept the default settings and generally get great results.
If you have batteries that aren't performing to your expectations and want to try an advanced cycle to "rescue" them, the instructions are detailed and it is just a matter of putting in one battery at a time and making a selection from a few categories. The instructions present a pretty good explanation of your choices, and you have the options at hand to possibly save older, degraded batteries.
B & H does a great job of packaging to protect it during its transfer to the buyer. Thanks B & H

Comments about Powerex MH-C9000 WizardOne Charger-Analyzer for 4 AA / AAA NiMH / NiCD Batteries:

I use this product to recharge Duracell batteries in my photography work. I am not a highly tech-savvy person but this unit seems to work really well. I like the idea of a slow charge and also the battery break-in mode which is supposedly quite beneficial in extending battery life. I have not as of yet used the discharge/recharge mode.

    Comments about Powerex MH-C9000 WizardOne Charger-Analyzer for 4 AA / AAA NiMH / NiCD Batteries:

    When I received my charger-analyser it was wrapped properly.It is a big charger and it is built solid. The lcd screen is easy to read and has a nice blue backlite.I put it to work right away and I have not stopped since that time. It worked well and I was able to recuperate a set of old batteries.The instructions are very well made and easy to understand for ordinary people.It is very quiet when working and the batteries do not get hot they just get warm.The electric cord on the adaptor is long enough but a bit flimsy.I owned other chargers in the past but this one is the best of all the chargers I owned.All the information given by the charger seems right according to a tester I used to verify after the break-in function.Everybody who uses rechargeable batteries must have one of these.It is not only a solid piece of equipment it's also a nice charger to look at.After a full 2 weeks of work without stopping it is still going very well.This is the best charger money can buy and for $49.95 I should of got 2.If you need a very good charger-analyser easy to work do not hesitate and get one you won't be dissapointed.

      I purchased this product to charge and refurbish my new AA nimh batteries for my camera. I have several cheap chargers but after reviewing other users reviews and getting educated in the basics of this type of battery decided to purchase this unit. I can't say enough about this unit. It is worth every dollar spent. It even charged several old nimh batteries that I though were junk and ready to discard. Spend the extra money and you will not regret it. I feel this unit will get me the max life out of my new batteries.

      Comments about Powerex MH-C9000 WizardOne Charger-Analyzer for 4 AA / AAA NiMH / NiCD Batteries:

      I agree with everybody else this is the best charger out there. You have to have this to maintain your rechargeable batteries. I have batteries 8-9 years old that are rated 2700mAh but were at 800 to 900 mAh. After reconditioning them in this charger there at 1500+mAh (I don't use these in my speedlights but for Pocketwizard's and such). Once I've reconditioned all my batteries I use this charger and the Powerex MH-C800S 8-cell charger for everyday charging. It took a while to figure out how to use it, there's a couple good YouTube videos that explains it well.

        Purchased as I use a lot of rechargable batteries (mainly travel, water purification, GPS etc) and I wanted something to analyse and condition them. So far it has done everything I expected, is simple to use, and appears robust.

            This is a great charger and easy to use. I've had this charger for several weeks now and had it going non stop charging all my old and new batteries.I started with my old batteries, and this charger showed me that my cheap charger from @ was not fully charging the batteries. All the batteries were below capacity. I ran the break in cycle and all but the oldest ones came back to capacity. After 3 break in cycles the oldest ones were still below capacity. I would never had known this with out this charger.I ran the break in cycle on all the new batteries as well and the charger showed they were just a little above capacity.The only bad thing I can say about the charger, and this is why I took one star off, the back light is ridiculously bright. It really needs a way to control the light level. I can't begin to explain just how bright the back light is. You don't want to put this thing in the bedroom or you will never get any sleep.Other then the back light I am extremely happy with the charger and how it shows just how many amp hours the batteries took.If you are looking for a great charger, get this one.

              Lots of settings which I like and reading the instructions are simple to understand. I set each battery to the setting that I want and press enter button twice and its goes to the next battery where I can select the setting that I want. I chose the break-in mode for the new batteries so it starts off at 245MAH and over a day increases the charge to over 2500 MAH for each battery.
