Maha Battery Charger-Analyzer

Maha Energy, the maker of Powerex batteries and chargers, has announced the MH-C9000 WizardOne Battery Charger & Analyzer. The WizardOne is capable of charging, conditioning, analyzing, cycling, forming and discharging one to four AA or AAA batteries, all while digitally displaying the battery capacity and voltage. All four slots can be operated independently in different modes and settings. A total of five modes are available. The unit features a large LCD screen, backlit by ultra-bright white LEDs. Measuring over 3.5" by 1.5", the display shows a wealth of information that is easy to read.

In addition to the standard charging, conditioning and discharging, the WizardOne charger-analyzer also offers two unusual operations modes. The "Break-In" mode allows the user to input the capacity of the battery and performs a "forming" charge designed to properly break-in new batteries. The "Cycle" mode allows user to charge and discharge batteries consecutively while storing the capacity for up to 15 cycles.

There are ten selectable charging and discharging current from 0.2A to 2.0A and 0.1A to 1.0A respectively. The charger also features four independent temperature sensors using Maha's latest temperature rise detection algorithm in addition to the usual peak temperature detection. It also armed with additional patented termination algorithms found in other Maha chargers.

The unit can be operated in a "basic" and "advanced" mode. In the basic mode, user merely needs to insert the batteries with no further key press. The charger will select the appropriate settings automatically.

Using a quartz oscillator time base typically found in computer boards, it is able to report capacity within 1% accuracy across multiple units making battery benchmarking more meaningful.

MH-C9000 will ship in December 2006 with a MSRP of $69.95. The standard package will include a worldwide travel power supply. A 12V car adapter is available as an option.
