Q: Do you have a video on how to use the charger?
Q: What is the difference between the MH-C9000PRO and MH-C980 analyzer chargers?
The MH-C980 charger is an 8-bank charger with a Soft Charge Mode and a Turbo Mode to charge your batteries. It also has the Conditioning Mode to Refresh & Analyze your batteries to see their actual capacity and has fixed charge and discharge rates. However, it does not have additional functions to get more information from your batteries.
The MH-C9000PRO charger is a 4-bank charger and a much more technical charger with 4 modes of operation to get more information from your batteries. It has a Charge Mode, Break-In Mode, Discharge Mode, and Refresh & Analyze Mode, charging and analyzing your batteries based on the selected settings. It also has Memory Settings and Easy Setup functions to make it easier to use.
Q: Can I charge my AA's and AAA's at the same time?
A: Yes, you can charge both AA's and AAA's at the same time.
Q: Can I leave my batteries in the charger?
A: You can leave your batteries in the charger once they are done charging and don't have to take them out right away. However, we DO NOT recommend storing your batteries in the charger. You can use a battery holder to store your batteries.
Q: What happens if I insert my battery in the charger backwards? Will it damage the charger or battery?
A: The charger will not charge that slot and will display a flashing number with a triangle underneath it on that particular slot number. This indicates there is a Battery Fault.
Q: Can I use other brand batteries in the charger?
A: Yes, as long as they are NiMH rechargeable batteries. However, we always recommend using Powerex batteries for best performance.
Q: Why does the charger display a lower mAh number than what my battery's rated capacity is when charging my batteries or when charging is Done?
A: The displayed mAh number represents the amount of energy that was charged into the battery. It is NOT the actual capacity of the battery. Think of it as when you put gas into your car. The gas pump will display how many gallons of gas was put into your car and not what it actually holds. If you would like to know the actual capacity of the battery, run the Conditioning Mode.
Q: Should I charge my batteries in the Turbo Mode or Default Soft Mode?
A: The Turbo Mode can be used when you need your batteries charged quickly. The Default Soft Mode is used when charging time is not critical. We always recommend charging at a slower rate whenever possible. It maximizes the battery's life and its performance.
Q: How do I analyze my batteries?
A: You can analyze your batteries by using the Conditioning Mode. At the end of the Conditioning Mode, the charger will display the available capacity of the battery.
