This CR898 battery charger is compact and light.
This CR898 is a neat and 'handy' charger. Power is from a combined transformer/wall plug.
This CR898 1 Hour Smart and Super Quick Charger has been designed to 'fast charge' the latest generation of NiMH batteries as well as older rechargeable batteries of a lower capacity. It has a exceptionally high current rating of 1400 mA (600mA for AAA batteries) and fully charges high capacity NiMH rechargeable batteries in as little as one hour and standard capacity batteries in even less.
This intelligent charger incorporates automatic end-of-charge detection (and then switches to trickle charge), and contains a safety timer and a temperature sensor.
This CR898 1 Hour Smart and Super Quick Charger can even charge two NiMH or NiCd AA cells in one side and two NiMH or NiCd AAA in the other side. It's like having two chargers in one!
