Hybrid batteries are the next generation of rechargeable batteries that combine the benefits of alkaline batteries with the performance of rechargeable batteries. Whereas standard rechargeable batteries must be charged before first use, Hybrid batteries are supplied fully charged and ready to use. They have a very slow discharge rate and can retain their charge for up to 12 months, which makes them ideal for use in a wide range of devices. They are suitable for use in high drain applications such as digital cameras as well as low drain devices such as clocks and remote controls. Hybrid batteries perform especially well in low temperatures - as low as -10°C - making them ideal for outdoor use in winter as well as in high temperatures during the summer. Hybrid batteries can be used in any standard battery charger with a charge time of 1 hour or more, but it is not recommended to charge the batteries in a 30-minute or 15-minute charger as this could affect the battery performance.The following additional Hybrid batteries are also available:

Order Code: N46CY - Hybrid AA 4-Pack 2100mAh

Order Code: N47CY - Hybrid AAA 4-Pack 800mAh.

Please note that this charger is not suitable for charging NiCd rechargeable batteries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The positive (top) contact on these AA batteries is about 0.5mm - 1mm shorter than other AAs. This means they are incompatible with the Apple Magic Mouse due to the battery compartment design.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I've had this charger for over a year. It works well (as advertised) with a variety of AA batteries, but not one AAA battery, hybrid or other, will charge in this unit. It does however discharge them, but after a few seconds of charging they read as "bad".

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problem with connection I also keep getting reports of BAD for batteries ; what does that mean as batteries still work. But having problems with charger; initially it didn't appear to charge any batteries but I discovered it only charges two batteries not four any more Can I get a refund as I discarded batteries as I assumed they were dud

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bought this just over a year ago and in that time it performed well. However, I knocked of a low table abou 18" of the floor and the plug came out of the charger. The power supply went pop and now will not work. There is no fuse to change so I suppose it is u/s. The plug is a loose fit in the charger, so take care

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent battery charger This is a better charger than I could have purchased elsewhere. The window showing charging taking place is useful. the facility to charge either 2 or 4 AA batteries is excellent.

How can you use this charger to charge a single flat cell? (it only activates on 2 or 4). If you put in one fully charged and one flat cell, will the fully charged one be over-charged in a damaging way?

Asked by: Roland
You can't you have to include 2 cells. We would advise to flatten 2 cells before charging.

Are the AA batteries compatible with apple magic mouse?

Asked by: Alex
I can answer for the magic trackpad, which is probably similar. It reports 'low battery' very quickly at 10% charge, but then only drops about 1% per week after that - just ignore the low battery warning and it works fine. I think this is because the voltage sensor is calibrated for alkaline cells (1.5v) rather than NiMH (1.2v).
