La Crosse Battery Charger with LCD Display
Battery chargers are just that, right? Wrong! ThinkGeek has brought us the La Crosse Battery Charger with LCD Display, and judging by its name, you will be able to have more fun compared to watching paint dry as your exhausted batteries are being juiced up by the device.
This charger works with all NiCd and NiMH “AA” and “AAA” rechargeable batteries and can charge AA & AAA simultaneously. The LCD display shows capacity for each battery when charging is complete. This charger will not charge defective batteries and has overheat detection to protect over-charging. The battery charger can also be put in one of four different modes: Charge, Discharge, Refresh and Test mode. The Refresh mode can help to restore old re-chargeable batteries to their optimum condition. The LCD display provides an individual readout for each of the four compartments and can show charging current (in mA), time elapsed (in hh:mm), terminal voltage (in V) and accumulated capacities (in mAh or Ah).
We’re pretty sure you’re not going to charge for admission for folks who want to view the LCD display as their bunch of batteries are being charged, but at least it offers something different compared to stock chargers we see in the market today. The La Crosse Battery Charger with LCD Display is currently going for $39.99.
