Designed for worldwide use, the Powerline 6+2 is a high-tech charger with high charging current and perfect charging control. After inserting the batteries, the charger starts an automatic diagnosis and a quick capacity test for about five seconds. Depending on the condition of the battery, the device selects a gentle pre-charge and/or refresh program, or initiates the actual charging process. The refresh mode restores performance of rechargeable batteries damaged by storage or memory effect, and prolongs their life cycle considerably.
Ansmann Powerline 6 Plus 2 Battery Charger Features
Charging the batteries: Charging option for 1-6 AAA / AA, 1-4 C / D, 1-2 9V Block NiCd/NiMH rechargeable batteries.
Maintaining and refreshing the batteries: The device automatically detects ailing rechargeable batteries, and initiates a refresh program which gently "revives" the batteries.
Automatic shut-off: State of the art microprocessor-controlled charging technology with multiple overcharge protection guarantees optimally charged batteries and a gentle charging process.
Quick charge: The PL 6+2 automatically determines the optimal charging current for the inserted batteries and loads them with up to 1000 mA in a rapid charging process.
Individual monitoring: With the PL 6+2 each round cell (of any size) can be placed in any charging slot. Each battery is individually monitored during charging, and individually charged to its maximum capacity.
Once a battery is fully charged, the charging process is automatically stopped and switched to trickle charging (buffer charging with current impulses). This feature ensures optimum performance and counteracts the self-discharge of the battery. The battery can thus remain in the device until it is used. A clearly arranged LED display shows the current program mode for each charging slot separately. Should a non-rechargeable or defective battery be inserted accidentally, this will be indicated by a flashing red LED.
