Alternative for Powerex MH-C800S battery charger??? SOFT ch

Postby haring on Thu Dec 07, 2017 11:43 am

I am just wondering whether there is any alternative for Powerex MH-C800S AA (AAA) battery charger. I had two units in the last 4-5 years. Both of them are dead.
I like them as a charger when they work. Unfortunately, it turns out they all fail within 1-2 years if you use them (all the time) as a professional photographer.

I would like to have a charger which allows me to charge battery in "soft" charge mode to make sue my batteries last long and it lasts more than 2 years...

THANKS SO MUCH!

Interesting; the same happened to mine a few years ago, and within a similar time frame. Just stopped working.

I don't know of any answer, but it seems to be a manifestation of a first world problem, planned obsolescence. Not good.

I had a Powerex C-900 that died after a couple of years. Looks like they have a quality control problem.
