I haven't heard much about this unit but what litttle I have seems to be good. No mainstream reviews just afew comments from Usenet and the web. Anyone here have one?

I picked up one today for $23 with 8 1800mah Nexcell batteries.

I have hadsomething similiar to Vanson V-1199 "Universal Fast Battery Charger" http://www.quovadis.tv/1199.htmlfor a couple of years. It has arefresh function, separate monitoring circuits and timer control. It was among the better charges around our area at the time I bought it. Different contacts determine the battery charging rate based on size.I think it was designed for lower capacity batteries (circa 1100-1600mAH) so the timer prevents fully charging newer batteries. Another problem is it had a switch for battery type NiCd or NhMH - definitely an older design.

Overall, they seem to have a good range of models.

Just recently, I decided to check it and found the left half charger circuits defective, so it's a good idea to check your charger if some of your batteries aren't charging effectively.

Personally, I would like something like the V-9150 http://www.quovadis.tv/9150.htmlbut prefer something that can handle C/D batteries too...

I used to have a Vanson V6000 charger which has 4separate chargingslots and charges for about 1 hour. It was OK for the price, a typical fast charger heating up the cells to something like 50C at the end of charge. I'd recommend that you find a charger with 4 independant slots, like the V6000
