Excellent, with a couple of caveats
April 8, 2011
Very nice charger -- it does a fine job of, well, charging batteries. It does suffer from a couple of issues, though. First, it\'s slow. NiMH cells should be charged well before they\'re dead, but this will still discharge them completely -- overnight charging isn\'t uncommon. I wish it had an OPTION for conditioning instead.
The other issue is minor. There\'s a prominent red button on the top. Press it and the device begins the discharge/conditioning cycle again. So if your batteries are 10 seconds away from a full charge and your 8-year-old son presses the button, you\'re stuck waiting while the batteries are drained and charged.
These things in mind, it\'s a fine device. But be prepared to wait for results.
