I have owned a number of chargers, mostly holding 4 batteries. I needed a charger that was reliable and fairly robust. This is the one recommended to me a few times and for some reason I kept glossing over it, until I finally did buy it.
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,
Fast charger,

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.

This is fantastic value for money.
Its a well made, good looking little charger.
The display is pretty basic, only giving a rough guide to how far the batteries are along the charging process. But to be honest that's all you really need, and the backlit display is a nice touch.

As far as charging is concerned the manual claims that it can be used to recharge both NiMH and the older NiCd batteries, however it does not have a discharge function so I wouldn't recommend using NiCd in this, because they should de drained before recharging in order to avoid the "memory effect".

The Vapextech is classed as a fast charger so can be aggressive, with a charging current of up to 2000 mA, which is very high. This figure reduces with the amount of batteries you insert, dropping down to 500mA if you are recharging its maximum of eight.

This is quite sophisticated for the price, as well as being able to recharge batteries independently, so you can use both AA and AAA batteries together. It uses Delta V circuitry, (which is not used in all chargers), to detect when the battery is full, as well as a safety timer to help prevent overcharging, which causes overheating and can destroy your batteries. The only feature it lacks is a temperature shut off for the battery which would have been a nice safety bonus.

In use I found it very capable, and have managed to recharge some of my older batteries which my Duracell Smart Charger had rejected, and although the batteries became very warm while charging, the same can be said for most fast chargers and is not a problem.

Overall this is a great charger, only the omission of a temperature sensor stopped me from giving it 5 stars, and although you can buy others cheaper you won't find many better at this price.

Very disappointed, at first I thought this was a great charger. I am now very disappointed, just after 12 months and both of these chargers have stopped working - thank you!

good charger it does charge very quick as in with in 30 to 40 minutes but I tend to put them on a separate charger just in case once this has charged it just to be on the safe side.

Does what it says on the tin as they say!
Neat wee unit with a nice blue backlit display!
Don't know how accurate the charge indicators are but I just leave mine till it goes cold and thereby know the unit has reached maximum charge with the cells and has turned itself off and stopped charging
