At first glance, it looks like just another battery charger, until you look a bit closer. However, the La Crosse BC-900 comes with an LCD display to let you know what is going on and gives you a ton of options to control the experience. You can charge the battery at the default 200mA (for prolonging the life of NiMH batteries) or 500, 700, 1000, 1500, or even 1800mA for the impatient. When the battery is fully charged the unit will automatically switch to trickle mode to keep the batteries full.
It works with all NiCd and NiMH AA and AAA rechargeable batteries and you can even charge AA’s and AAA’s at the same time.
It includes a set of 4 AA and 4 AAA NiMH 1.2v batteries, an AC power adapter, a travel bag, and adapters for converting the batteries into C or D cells. Not bad for only $39.99 from Amazon.
