Innovative Features
- The Refresh Battery Charger can charge 1, 2, 3 or 4 AA or AAA Ni-MH or Ni-CD batteries at a time. - A Microcomputer IC Chip controls charging processes. The intelligent chip will cut off charging when the batteries are full and automatically convert to trickle charging mode. This ensures your batteries reach full capacity and protects against overcharging. - The IC Chip automatically identifies non-rechargeable batteries, shortcircuited batteries and defective rechargeable batteries. Charging will only be initiated if properly functioning batteries are inserted, protecting against device malfunctioning. - Overheat Protection: The Refresh Battery Charger will stop charging automatically if the temperature of the charger or battery gets too high during charging.
