I’m thinking about upgrading my home battery charger. Curious what recommendations folks might have. I’d like a relatively fast charger - I have a recollection of using one that would charge AAA’s in about 20-30 minutes, but now most of what I’m seeing for the fast chargers is more in the ballpark of 1.5-2 hours for a 1000 mAh AAA. Is my recollection wrong? Is the 1.5-2 hours about the best I can do?
Also, I’m seeing a bunch that have a button to switch to a discharge mode. This one, for example. Are there any chargers that auto-discharge and then switch to charging once it has the batteries empty? Or is that always going to a manual switch/button?
In terms of general specs, I basically need to charge AA and AAA’s, though it’d be nice to be able to charge other battery sizes too. Maybe I’ll buy some someday. And I definitely need to charge batteries independently. None of this pairs stuff.
Anything else I should keep in mind?
