Information Article about Battery Pack Chargers
Here, we provide some basic information about Battery Pack Chargers. Our hope is to inform you with even one piece of information that will help you in your battery pack charger purchase, now or in the future.
There are different types of battery pack chargers, used for the different types of battery packs that there are.
There are what are considered to be “Standard Wall-Wart battery pack chargers and those are usually the least expensive. They operate on a timer controlled type of process. Timer controlled chargers are manufactured at the factory with an automatic shut off feature. At a pre-determined length of time, the unit stops delivering charge to the battery packs in it. This type of charger doesn’t have the ability to detect the remaining power left in the battery packs (each individually) and top off each pack as required. It simply turns off at this pre-set time. It’s an inexpensive type of battery pack charger and this auto shut off component is why.
Time controlled battery pack chargers don’t really provide much in the way of any additional features beyond straight-forward charging capability. They’re no-frills chargers and many people find them perfectly suitable for kids electronic toys and some inexpensive battery packs. Typically, this type will cost between $8 and $15.
For all higher quality battery packs including those for use in industry and more expensive battery packs for home use, the buyer is best off with a good quality charger to protect that battery pack investment. On the market today are battery pack chargers for the following rechargeable battery chemistries: NiMh, (Nickel Metal Hydride), NiCd (Nickel Cadmium), Li-Ion (Lithium Ion) LiPO, (Lithium Polymer), and SLA (Sealed Lead Acid) batteries.
The other type of battery pack charger is called a Smart Charger and as the name implies, does use a type of technology that allows it to Smartly charge the battery packs within it. At MEGAbatteries.com, we recommend using Smart Chargers (also called Intelligent Chargers) to protect battery packs, and this is the reason why: Smart battery pack chargers have the ability to evaluate and detect the remaining power within each battery pack and deliver exactly the “topping off” power it requires to be once again, fully charged. Using a Smart Battery Pack Charger will ensure that your battery packs never become over charged and never remain undercharged. Each pack is treated individually. There is a price to pay for this individualized treatment but well worth that one time investment to prolong the entire life (lives) of the battery packs.
