The LaCrosse technology BC700 alpha power battery charger and analyzer has four modes and charges all NiCd and NiMh AA and AAA rechargeable batteries. the four modes include charge, discharge (discharges the batteries and then recharges them), recharge (discharges and recharges up to 20 times to bring old batteries back to life) and test (displays the battery capacity). bc-700 battery charger features:
all modes automatically default to 200 ma charge on the bc-700 battery charger
charge both AA and AAA rechargeable batteries simultaneously and will charge all low-discharge batteries. Sanyo Eneloop, Uniross Hybrio, Nexcell Energyon, Accupower Acculoop and other future low discharge batteries.
has four independent channels - charges 1, 2, 3 , or 4 rechargeable batteries at a time.
overheat detection to protect over-charging and LCD shows capacity for each battery when charging is complete. charge mode - allows a range of user selectable milliamp settings from 200 to 700 for faster charging times. within 4 seconds after rechargeable batteries are inserted charging automatically begins at 200ma, or you may select 500, or 700ma charge rates for faster charging times.
discharge mode - reduces memory effect by discharging rechargeable battery completely before recharging to full capacity. user selectable.
refresh mode - discharges and recharges up to 20 cycles or until rechargeable battery is refreshed to full capacity. user selectable.
test mode- first charges the rechargeable battery to full capacity, then discharges completely to measure rechargeable battery capacity for display in mah or ah, and then recharges each rechargeable battery to full battery capacity.
UL approved, BC700 charger also has safeguards that sense rechargeable battery polarity, rechargeable battery temperature and defective rechargeable batteries.
world voltage capable - operates on 100~240v ac input. automatically defaults to 200ma charge (the optimal setting for prolonging battery life) max charging capacity: 3000 mah overheat detection to protect over-charging select different charging current for each channel automatically switches to trickle charge when charging is complete to ensure maximum battery capacity 7, easy-to-use function keys charge mode (charging current) discharge mode (discharging current) refresh mode (time elapsed) test mode (accumulated capacity) LCD shows capacity for each battery when charging is complete input voltage for ac/dc adapter: 100-240 vac charging current range: 200 mah, 500mah, or 700mah
