Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor product I wish I'd read these reviews before buying this product. As stated in previous reviews, the charge time is incredibly slow and the LED lights give no indication of wether the batteries are fully charged or not. I shouldn't have to leave it plugged into the mains for 3 days straight in the hope that the batteries receive a full charge as I don't like leaving these things unattended. I'll be binning this and buying a better charger.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty Either takes three days to charge two AAs or the charge indicator doesn't work. It's going back. The charge rate quoted inside the packing is incredibly slow, so I will be going for something much more useable instead.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overpriced It doesn't warn you, but there is no indication when the batteries are fully charged. That is a real nuisance, and charging is very slow. Buy a cheaper faster charger with full charge indicator, not this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful! The charger has 2 red let lights to let you know that the batteries are charging. But get this they don't turn off/green when the batteries are charged so you have to try to guess when they are done using the estimates in the manual. 19 - 21hrs for a 2200mah - 2500mah like that is absolutely ridiculous

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work I bought this in a shop and foolishly threw away the packaging and probably can't return now. Unbelievably terrible, simply does not work. I've left batteries plugged in all week and they still aren't charged?!?!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid this item Absolutely useless. Recommended by salesman I should have checked reviews first. The only thing this has charged is my wallet Might think twice about returning to the shop feel let down

Bought this device recently. On plugging in got no response from led indicators. Having left on charge(?) for two days still nothing. Before returning to shop, might I assume device is faulty? On reading reviews, it seems this device is unreliable.

If I only want to charge 2 batteries, does it matter whether I put them in the front or the back?

Asked by: Smil
You can charge 2 batteries if you don't need to charge all 4 at once as long as they are the right way up. The batteries can only go in the front of the device.

Hello, I had bought a N10BW charger and as per instructions I have left the chanrger and batteries on for more than 26 hrs now - still the red LED is glowing - which means it is still charging - is the product faulty ?
Asked by: Tata Kadidi
No this is normal the charge LEDs merely indicate that a battery is present and voltage is being transfered. They do not trun off anymore to indicate that the batteries are full.
