Some more about the charger - The Energy 16 Plus is an intelligent battery charger designed for use with 1 - 12 AAA or AA cells, 1 - 6 C or D cells and 1 - 2 9V Blocks.
It is suitable for NiCd and NiMH rechargeable batteries and comes with 2 handy USB charging sockets.
The charging currents are:

When a battery or batteries are inserted into the charger there is a capacity test of the inserted cells for approximately 10 seconds. Then an automatic diagnosis of the inserted cells takes place followed by an automatic start of the refreshing process and/or pre-charging process, if required. This is where tired cells will be activated.
