The Maha Powerex MH-C401FS allows you to recharge AA and AAA NiMH or NiCD batteries accurately and coolly. Charge time for AA batteries is around 100 minutes. AAA batteries charge in around 1 hour. The Unique FLEX negative pulse charging algorithm allow the battery to accept a more complete charge, regardless of the of battery’s capacity, allowing users to fully realize the potential of their batteries.
The new FLEX negative pulse algorithm also significantly enhances battery life. FLEX Pulse also makes traditional battery conditioning and cycling unnecessary as the pulse eliminates the memory effect just by charging the batteries.
The C401FS is also the first charger on the market to offer the choice between a 100-minute rapid charge and a slower, gentler 5-hour charge, both driven by a microprocessor termination control to prevent overcharge. Accomplished by simply flipping a switch, the 5 hour gentle charge achieves ultra-cool charging when charging time is not crucial. The 100 Minute Rapid Charge provides Extremely fast recharge time, while still utilizing a Microprocessor Cutoff. The 5 Hour Gentle Charge provides cooler battery charging and extends overall battery life.
The MH-C401FS charger has four independently controlled channels to charge and monitor each battery individually. This allows each battery to be charged to its full potential without risk of overcharging. The charger can charge one, two, three or four batteries at a time.
Included in the pack is a 12V DC adaptor so you can charge on-the-go. Great for camping holidays.

I use this little charger with a solar panel to charge my AA and AAA batteries. As my panel is only 10W, I use the slow setting. With a larger solar panel (ie 20W and above) I expect you could use the quick charge setting.
It is well made and very compact. A great travel charger.
PROtog provides great customer service. If you are interested in this charger, I would recommend you buy one.
