Comments:

I have some hobby level chargers but none can handle more than one D size NiMH cell. I bought a powerful flashlight that uses 4 of them so I needed a multi-slot charger. I tried a no-name, cheap charger, first. Its automatic termination function seemed to work properly but the batteries were warm to the touch and their capacities seemed to be lower than expected. After some research on the web, I decided to try the MH-C808M. What a big difference! The runtime of my flashlight went up from 53 mins to 72 mins with the same batteries, the charging duration is halved and they are no longer warming up when being charged. At conditioning mode, the charger also does a very good job. Since I am used to hobby chargers, I would like that the MH-C808M could discharge my batteries when I wish so. It discharges them during the "condition" mode but always terminates with full batteries. This is why I gave it 4 stars. Otherwise, I would have given 5 stars. It is made of high quality materials and feels robust. I am using it for a few weeks only but it is one of these confidence inspiring products. The batteries "click" firmly in place and the terminals make good, solid connection. The cable, the connector, the plug, everything is made of high quality materials. For those living outside the US, like me, no transformer is needed. Just order the plug type for your country, plug-in, and it works. I wouldn't have this charger, in the first place, if it needed a transformer from 220V to 110V. All in all, this is a well built, high quality charger.

MY STORE BOUGHT CHARGER TOOK 22 HRS TO CHARGE MY POWEREX D CELLS AND THEY WERE ALMOST TOO HOT TO THE TOUCH WHEN REMOVING FROM THE STORE BOUGHT CHARGER. MY NEW MAHA CHARGER DID IT IN 4HRS ON SOFT CHARGE MODE AND WERE COOL TO THE TOUCH. CHARGE LASTED OVER 8 HOURS IN A BOOMBOX AT 3/4 VOLUME WHILE WORKING. AN INVESTMENT IF YOU USE RECHARGABLES ON A DAILY BASIS!
