If you are anything like me you have a tendency to hoard useful electronic gadgets – as a result I have a garage that has many battery chargers from many different eras. I refer to the task of charging so called rechargeable batteries for torches, PDA’s, GPS units and so on…
Well the latest and fastest (?) charger that I have acquired is the Uniross X-Press 700 Charger RC104311 – cost Â£18.94 including delivery from Battery Logic in the UK.The impetus for this was the fact that the Raymarine RC400 that is mounted at the helm will now only run on the mains power that I have installed there and the batteries are refusing to hold a charge any more. The batteries supplied with this unit are the AA 2300mAh NiMH type.
The Uniross X-Press 700 Charger looks like a good unit and comes with 4 new batteries – which are 2500mAh (ultra high capacity) so I hope they will perform even better in constant use on passage than the previous set.
â€¢ Includes 4 x AA 2500mAh Ni-MH rechargeable batteries.
â€¢ The Xpress 700 will charge AAA & AA size batteries.
â€¢ This charger will charge 2 or 4 Ni-Cd / Ni-MH batteries.
â€¢Due to an intelligent charge control inside, the charger will switch to trickle charge after charging.
â€¢ V-MAX technology protects against damage from using with non-rechargeable technologies.
Charge time for batteries:
