  • What's Included
  • The cost and environmental benefits of rechargeable batteries have been taken a step further with the Solar Powered Ni-MH/Ni-Cd Battery Charger. Until now, recharging batteries required you to plug in a charger using electricity. This battery charger harnesses and converts natural sunlight into energy to reenergize Ni-MH and Ni-Cd rechargeable batteries, completely eliminating the use of expensive electricity, making this a truly environmentally friendly product. It facilitates 11 different pairs of batteries, from standard cylinder shaped batteries (AA, AAA, C and D sizes) to gum shaped batteries. The weather resistant housing allows you to put this outside and an adjustable angle stand lets you get the best possible sun exposure for the solar panel. Once the charger is in position, simply check on the charge meter to see how much time there is remaining for a full charge. Now you can run any battery powered device to your hearts content and let the sun power up your rechargeable batteries for free when they are drained.

    Important Note: Re-charging time will vary depending upon the strength of the sunlight or the level to which the batteries have been discharged.


    Charging
    The charger is designed to charge two batteries of the same size and brand as mixing batteries causes different resistance adversely affecting the output of the charger.

    Ni-MH and Ni-Cd Rechargeable Batteries
    The Solar Powered Battery Charger is designed to recharge both Ni-MH batteries and Ni-Cd batteries. While each battery type supplies virtually the same voltage, Ni-MH batteries will greatly out-perform standard Ni-Cd batteries in high-drain application as the Ni-MH battery usually have about two to three times the energy storage capacity of the Ni-Cd battery. A Ni-MH battery can be recharged at any time without affecting battery life while the Ni-Cd must be fully discharged before recharging. Additionally, the Ni-Cd battery contains Cadmium which is hazardous to the environment.

    Not happy at all! Large cheaply made. Would I suggest this product to someone else? No! Hinged battery cover broken on delivery, Unit not charging batteries and scale pegs to the right as far as it physically can.

    I gave this 3 stars, instead of 5, because I haven't actually tried it yet. It rains off and on, where I live, and this solar charger is 'weather resistant' not weather proof. However... it appears to be in good working order.

    The first thing that I did after receiving this charger was to throw a couple of ten year old NiCad D cells into it, and place the unit out in full sunlight. 3 hours later They were fully charged! I can wait to try charging my Eneloops with it.

    I like the meter. It gives you an idea of how much electricity the unit is producing. When there is more sun, the needle swings to the right. When there is less sun, the needle swings to the right. It is a useful tool.
