Alpha Power charger from La Crosse
The Alpha Power battery charger from La Crosse features a LCD display. The charger defaults to a 200mA charge mode which is the optimal setting for prolonging battery life. Speaking of prolonging battery life, did you know that the ideal method to recharge a NiMH battery is the slow and steady way? Apparently fast chargers strain the batteries thus reducing their lives. But in case you are in a hurry, with the Alpha Power battery charger you can manually set it to 500, 700, 1000, 1500 or 1800mA to reduce charging times. When the battery is fully charged, this charger automatically switches to a trickle charge mode to ensure maximum battery capacity.
Alpha Power charger from La Crosse works with all NiCd and NiMH AA and AAA rechargeable batteries and you can even charge AA’s and AAA’s at the same time. The charger comes with a set of 4 AA and 4 AAA NiMH 1.2v batteries, a travel bag, an AC power adapter and adapters for converting the batteries into C or D cells. It is available at Amazon for $39.99, but at the official site it is marked for $79.99!
