Charging and maintenance device for 1-12 Micro AAA / Mignon AA, 1-6 Baby C / Mono D and 1-2 9V E-Block rechargeable batteries, automatic refreshing function, 2 USB charging sockets.
- Charging the batteries: Charging option for 1-12 Micro AAA / Mignon AA, 1-6 Baby C / Mono D, 1-2 9V Block NiCd/NiMH rechargeable batteries.
- Maintaining and refreshing the batteries: The device automatically detects ailing rechargeable batteries, and initiates a refresh program which gently "revives" the batteries.
- Automatic shut-off: State of the art microprocessor-controlled charging technology with multiple overcharge protection guarantees optimally charged batteries and a gentle charging process.
- Quick charge: The Energy 16 Plus automatically determines the optimal charging current for the inserted batteries and charges them with up to 1000 mA in a rapid charging process.
- Individual monitoring: Each battery is individually monitored during charging, and individually charged to its maximum capacity.
- USB charging sockets: Two USB ports offer the possibility to also charge mobile devices with fixed batteries, such as smart phones.
After inserting the batteries, the charger starts an automatic diagnosis and a quick capacity test for about ten seconds. Depending on the condition of the battery, the device selects a gentle pre-charge and/or refresh program, or initiates the actual charging process. The refresh mode restores performance of rechargeable batteries damaged by storage or memory effect, and prolongs their life cycle considerably.
Once a battery is fully charged, the charging process is automatically stopped and switched to trickle charging (buffer charging with current impulses). This feature ensures optimum performance and counteracts the self-discharge of the battery. The battery can thus remain in the device until it is used. A clearly arranged LED display shows the current program mode for each charging slot separately. Should a non-rechargeable or defective battery be inserted accidentally, this will be indicated by a flashing red LED.
The Energy 16 Plus is designed for worldwide use.
