Rated 4 out of 5 by from Charges quickly as expected. Fan a bit noisy other minor points Thought that the unit was faulty until I discovered the small plastic shielding pieces on the battery terminals Nice to have a separate plug-in transformer but it because of its size it would have been much better if the body of the transformer ended up above the plug point rather than below it which limits its usefulness with skirting-mounted sockets, or at least being able to rotate the unit by 180 degrees

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought mine in March 2013 from the Cardiff store. The plug failed just after the guarantee ran out. I phoned Maplins. They agreed to inspect it after I asked what their policy was under these circumstances. On arrival at the store, I rang the bell at the rear of the store. There was no response yet I could hear someone in the background. The front desk Assistant then came down to the rear desk and promptly took the charger. The plug tested faulty, and she replaced this item after verification by the Manager. This was a positive response.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased this charger years ago and it still works fine. Charges batteries really quickly and has been very useful when caught out with no batteries for xbox controllers or computer mice. I would say the increased cost is worth the short charging time and I would recommend this to a friend.

I have charger, All 4 red led flash at the same time. what does this mean. Please help if you can.

Asked by: David
A flashing red light unfortunately means that the battery is bad and can no longer be charged in the unit. It is worth trying the battery a few times to be sure though.

how does this product indicated when battery is fully charged

Asked by: robeoke
The red charging light on each battery turns to green. When all batteries are charged the unit switches off (or at least the fan does).
