    nice find!

    picked up 2 for $7 (using $5 credit).

    perfect christmas thrown in .

    though reviews of batteries say they are pretty average

    might get some ikea batteries to go with it.

    Was picking up my click and collect order today and saw this by chance at the checkout. Purchased in a flash. Seems to be a decent charger but batteries did get hot while charging. I got the last one at the Blackburn Victoria store

    Is this a fast or slow battery charger? Got a similar looking Aldi Active energy one and need to replace it. This matches one of the Active Energy models sold by Aldi (MD-11954). which is a fast charger.

    Picked up a few of these about a year ago

    Can confirm the AA batteries included are definitely not LSD. They lose charge very quickly on the shelf.

    The AAA's are kind of semi-LSD. They last a lot longer than AA, but not as long as eneloops and other quality LSD batteries.

    Is this a smart charger or timer charger?

    Not in stock in SA and cant be delivered

    Recharges alkaline safely? I’ve seen a guy on YouTube do this successfully by using a charger and a timer switch set at 15 minutes on and 15 off to let the battery cool down before starting the recharge again. After 2 hours the alkaline battery was fully charged again.

      Occasionally you might come across an electronic device that refused to operate correctly, or even turn on, with NiCad or NiMH cells inserted - because their terminal voltage is 1.2V, whereas single use carbon/alkaline/etc. batteries are 1.5V. (They may have used the 1.5V for a voltage reference that was now wrong due the incorrect terminal voltage, or perhaps to create a timing pulse for a processor, etc. who knows.) But without the correct voltage the device 'thought' no batteries were inserted, or the timing was out of whack, or an LCD screen barely was visible… But it's rare to find such a device. I think I owned 2 such devices in my lifetime but I can't even recall what they were.

      So why anyone without one of those rare affected devices, would bother buying expensive alkaline cells planning to recharge them is beyond me. They're not cheap, and 99% of people will never need 1.5V cells over 1.2V. People may as well buy Eneloops or the Aldi imitations (which are cheaper but self-discharge sooner - apparently).

    Thanks OP.
    With 8 batteries included, good deal, even if batteries are not the best, there is 8 of em plus charger, for $6 :)

    Just got 2 for $7 . Anyone can do same, just join supercheap membership for $5, click activation link in email, then when you go to checkout, bonus credit does not automatically apply, you have to click loyalty credit then apply and it will take $10 off for your $5 membership cost :) .

    gmx.com is great for a quick disposable type email, if you need to make new account to receive $10 bonus credit with $5 supercheap club signup. gmx do randomly lock accounts though, but only after a few months usually.

      The charger and batteries are both garbage. It's likely why they're clearing them out.
      Charger charges too fast and batteries get too hot, causing them to fail. When I noted how hot they got I used my usb slow charger on them, but batteries did not last many recharges before low capacity and annoyingly when using 4x AA together, random cells go down to 0.2v damaging them while others still have charge.

      For the price… you're still buying garbage, but at least its cheap garbage.

    This looks very similar to an Aldi charger I purchased a few years ago.

  •  

    Thanks OP, great find! Bought 2.

      You need to login to your account, it will force a password reset, and then I think you will receive a credit

      •  

        I did that on the weekend but sadly no luck. ah well, it's been a while since we got a no strings $5 credit, maybe they'll start doing them again, I typically spend a few $ when I get one anyway as there's always something I need from SCA!

  •  

    Would be a very good deal with $5 credit. But the post is too late … :(

  •  

    can anyone see stock available as i cant in Melbourne ?

  •  

    D'oh! looks like Ozbargained…. no more stock and no delivery so sad…..

  •  

    Bought the last two at Tuggerah still showing stock in a few stores in Nsw

  •  

    Also three of my aa came up as bad when I charged them. Popped them into a dumb charger for 10 minutes they came good

  •  

    Thanks for the post - none in Tas

    "Intelligent microprocessor controlled" - Why does it need a switch for the different battery types?

    I had an old "Recharger" 4 bay charger from Bunnings, (got it ~20 years ago, still working), it charged NiCad, NiMh, and Alkaline and it's not necessary to tell it what kind of battery was in which bay. Just put a battery in and it'll work out what it is and charge as appropriate, no switches on it at all.

    SCA reviewers of this product say that the batteries are very poor, heat up, and smell like burning when charging. The recharger hasn’t even worked for some. The batteries will most likely need to be replaced so don’t hope too much.
