2A is well above recommended charge rates for even the highest quality cells and 0.5 A is a little low. If you can only ever charge four cells, why buy an 8-slot charger...?? I'll be sending mine back.
This is an excellent little charger.
A list or the Pluses:
You can charge single batteries,
You can charge batteries of different powers ( ie 2000mah, 2450mah, 800mah) at the same time,
You can charge AA and AAA at the same time,
It gives you individual levels of each battery,
This is pretty much exactly what I need and with a little extra added in.
I have not really found any cons and perhaps the only minor downside is that the power unit is external, however thats probably a good thing, since if it fails you simply have to replace the power unit and not worry about the main unit.
Other users have commented on the charger being noisy...whilst I would not say its actually noisy it does make noises - I say noises as opposed to a noise - it clicks and whines - the type of noise it makes appears to depend on the number of cells it is charging - remove a cell whilst it is charging and the noise changes! Having said that it is certainly not obtrusive but is obvious if the charger is close by. Comments have also been made about the display. It does need to be viewed from the correct angle - if this is not done then the display disappears and all that can be seen is the blue background.. This was the case with displays years ago and is not obvious in newer displays so maybe the display is using an old chip, its not really an issue though.
Something that no one appears to have mentioned is that the charger causes RFI - radio frequency interference... To the average user this is not a problem but should you be a radio ham or someone who listens to a radio that happens to be near the charger then you will experience radio interference. Lots of modern day electronic appliances have oscillators inside and these cause interference. Normally items manufactured outside the UK would have to comply with the appropriate regulations, maybe this does not... In any event again a fairly minor problem and easily remedied - move the charger away form the radio!
My main disappointment with this charger however is its inability to handle AAA cells. Whilst it is sold as being suitable for AA and AAA cells, it appears to have a design fault in that getting an AAA cell to make electrical contact and physically stay in the charger is difficult... I've tried it with various AAA cells and most of them cannot be charged, a couple of the 'sockets' appear ok but in most cases the battery just jumps out. Some of the other reviewers have also commented on this. Luckily I don't use AAA cells so it is not a major issue for me but it does mean the charger is not as described. Without this problem the Vapextech would warrant four stars - maybe five !
I spent several days looking at what was available and reading through the reviews to get a general feeling for what i wanted.
This little charger [over half the size of my last charger for the same amount of batteries] is solidly built and features a backlit display so you can see how far along your batteries are to being fully charged.
I have found that when charging only a couple of batteries at a time ,it takes a lot less time than my old one did.
I like that once fully charged the charger reduces the charge to a trickle preventing damage.
Overall i love this charger it does what it supposed to quickly and easily and i can charge one battery on its own if i need to which is a bonus.

Funciona muy bien, yo diría que comparado con los otros cargadores de baterías que he tenido (han sido 3) este ha sido el mejor.
Indica individualmente la carga de cada pila con 4 rayas, otros lo hacen sólo con 3.
Cuando las pilas ya se han cargado dejan de chupar energía evitando que se recalienten o revienten.
En otros cargadores una vez que terminan de cargarse las sacas y si las vuelves a poner a cargar siguen cargando durante 15 o 20 minutos más, como si la primera carga no hubiera llenado las pilas enteras, este en vez de volver a recargar las pilas durante 15 o 20 minutos más sólo lo hace durante 2 o 3 minutos más. Se supone que eso es bueno.
He probado a cargar las mismas pilas en este cargador y en otro y en el otro se recalientan muchisimo y en este no.
Trae un transformador con 4, sí, 4, no 2, 4 tipos de enchufes intercambiables por si viajas mucho por el mundo cargando pilas.
3 stück 1100mAh AAA Akku war in 2,5 stunden geladen.
Für diese preis geschenkt vielen Dank
