The latest 2016 version of the iconic BL-700 battery charger, the original smart battery charger, utilises very high specification components throughout which results in a device of the highest professional standard and should not be confused with cheaper copy products with similar functionality.
The BL-700 battery charger has four independent charging channels each of which allow for independent charging, discharging, refreshing or testing of any AA or AAA rechargeable battery, both NiCd and NiMH.
Perfect for charging odd numbers of batteries (1,2,3 or 4)
Each battery slot has its own LCD providing real time information relating to the status of every battery so you can view actual charge/discharge current, terminal voltage, accumulated mAh and elapsed time per cell.
You can perform different functions on each battery simultaneously. You can set the charge current at different levels for each of the four batteries and you can also charge different sizes (AA or AAA) at the same time.
Select the charge current of your choice for a gentle or fast charge at either 200mA, 500mA, 700mA. Charging is specifically limited to a maximum of 700mA which is designed to protect your batteries from damaging over charging which reduces the life of modern low self discharge batteries.
The Refresh Mode does a very good job of reviving tired, neglected or abused batteries by automatically charging and discharging until optimum performance is achieved.
This charger is perfect for matching batteries into similarly performing sets and does an excellent job of identifying failing cells within a set.
Supplied with a 12 month manufacturers warranty and suitable for charging any NiMH or NiCd rechargeable AA/AAA battery with capacity up to 3000mAh.

In terms of its charging functions, the charge setting, as the name suggests, simply charges the batteries, while the discharge setting completely discharges the batteries before charging them, so prolonging their lifespan. The refresh function puts the batteries through 20 full charge/discharge cycles to bring them back to full health, and the test setting charges then discharges them to give a reading on how healthy they are. I've used all but the test setting and can say with certainty that each has its place - the refresh function in particular has been excellent at bringing up batteries I thought were dead.
You can also select the charging current which will vary the charging time but may affect the battery health - it is often said that a slow charge, while taking longer, is better for your batteries. I use mine on the middle setting, which seems to give the best compromise between speed and safety.
In a `dumb' battery charger, the unit charges batteries for a set time, so overcharging is a constant possibility.Read more ›
It only charges two battery sizes AA and AAA, but the clever bit is you can charge them in any number or mixture of the two types and even varying capacities within the same type. It as four modes of operation `charge', `discharge', `test' and `refresh'. Even better is that each one of the four batteries can be operating in a different mode. When a single battery is fully charged you can pop-it-out (use a small screwdriver) without unplugging the unit, and pop in another battery and set it up in one of the modes without disturbing the charging mode of the other batteries. That's where the 8secs comes into play. If you mess up no problems just select the battery and reset the mode. The default mode is just to charge at the lowest rate of 200ma.
I did find it the unit seemed to run a little warmish but setting it up on a wire tray solved the problem. I can see that the `refresh' mode could take several days and one must think initially where in the house to plug the unit in so it's not accidentally unplugged by some other family-member! Don't forget when refreshing a single battery the other compartments are available for more normal charging.

If, and only if, this operates like the bc700 that I have, which appears identical, then the 'null' issue renders it almost useless. It won't charge totally discharged batteries. Read morePublished 3 months ago by stigweard
