Dear Customer,

Thank you for purchasing the Kogan universal battery charger. This product is an excellent environmentally friendly choice providing a comprehensive and versatile solution to keeping your batteries charged when you need them and minimizing battery waste.The device you have purchased is equipped with the best available technology. The product meets the requirements of current European and National guidelines.

This battery charger has the following features:

  • Easy to use
  • Intelligent microprocessor controlled
  • With negative delta V cut-off function
  • Rechargeable batteries in all capacities 1-4 pcs size AAA ,AA ,N,C ,D& 1 PCS 9V
  • Recharges batteries in SINGLE or GROUP as the Kogan Charger microprocessor monitors each charging bay individually
  • With short-circuit protection
  • With both LED and LCD display ,the status of each batteries charge cycle can be seen easily
  • With individual maximum timer control for overcharge protection.
  • Charges Ni-Cd (Nickel Cadium), Ni-Mh(Nickel Metal Hydride), Alkaline *, RAM(Rechargeable Alkaline Manganese)

Note on standard alkaline batteries:
The Kogan Charger can charge most types of alkaline batteries. Please use the setting “ALK” on the sliding front panel of your charger. Because of the chemistry of standard alkaline batteries they cannot be recharged nearly as many times as standard rechargeable type batteries like Ni-Cd or Ni-MH batteries. However, the Kogan Charger uses a recharge current of 130 mA and the entire charging process is controlled intelligently by microprocessor which can recharge most standard alkaline batteries to 75-90% of their original capacity upwards of 30+ times depending on the quality of the battery. Please note standard alkaline batteries should be completely drained before recharging with your Kogan Charger. On an environmental note, the cost/performance comparison between standard alkaline batteries and rechargeable batteries such as Ni-Cd (Nickel Cadmium) and Ni-MH (Nickel Metal Hydride) is overwhelmingly in favour of rechargeable batteries, we think them the obvious environmental choice.

We kindly request the user to follow the operating instructions to preserve this condition and to ensure safe operation.
The device is intended for charging rechargeable Ni-Cd, Ni-MH and RAM batteries of type of Mono (C), Baby (D), Mignon (AA) and Micro (AAA) as well as 9v block batteries. The charger is also effective at recharging standard alkaline batteries of the same types but at a more limited capacity as outline earlier. (See “note on standard alkaline batteries”)

  1. This charger can charge 4 kinds of batteries Ni-Cd, Ni-MH, RAM &Alkaline.
    • The Four separate battery charging bays function independently
    • This enables charging of up to 4 batteries simultaneously,
    Note: Batteries must of the same type is Ni-Cd, Ni-MH or alkaline.
    • Accommodates both AA, AAA, C, D size and 9V batteries. Battery type is preselected therefore only one type (Ni-Cd, Ni-MH, RAM or alkaline (Ram Setting)) battery can be charged at one time
    • This charger uses the latest battery charging technology. It uses “-delta V” deletion when charging Ni-Cd &Ni-MH battery first, followed by a quick charge. Once the battery is fully charged, a constant current trickle charge will keep the battery at optimum capacity.
  2. Discharging Ni-Cd only
    Discharge times will vary dependant on capacity and charge state, typically the process could take up to one hour, before the charge cycle commences. During the discharge process The indicator LED will glow amber
  3. Operation
    Please read the following instructions carefully before first use of the Kogan Charger.
    • Connect the DC plug from the AC adaptor to the DC socket on the rear of the charger.
    • Insert the AC adaptor into the household supply ensuring the wall socket is switched ON. This will cause the LED power indicator light to turn on.
    • Select the required battery type by moving the batter selector switch between Ni-Cd ,Ni-MH or Ram for alkaline batteries (Switch must not be moved after batteries are loaded)
    • Insert the required number of batteries into the charger, making sure the correct polarity is observed (— is uppermost)
    • After approximately 2 seconds the Kogan Charger will automatically detect the status of the battery.
    • Once battery detection is complete one of the following charging programs will commence.
    • Ni-Cd batteries: A characteristic of a Ni-Cd battery is that it suffers from a memory condition which means after repeated topping up of the battery the capacity is significantly reduced. To counteract this effect the Kogan Charger will discharge the battery first (LCD linking “DIS”& energy LCD indicator flashing downward ) whilst LED indicator is illuminated yellow. Once the discharge cycle is completed, the Kogan Charger will begin the quick charge program (LCD blinking “CHA”& energy level indicator flashing upward ) whilst the LED indicator illuminates red. When the battery is fully charged ,( The LCD will show “OK”& energy level indicator showing full) whilst the LED indicator illuminates green.
    • Ni-MH & Alkaline batteries: Since neither Ni-MH nor Alkaline batteries have memory characteristics; the Kogan Charger will automatically start the quick charge program. Both LCD & LED will have the same display as for charging Ni-Cd battery.
    • Providing the fully charged batteries are not removed form the battery charging bays, The Kogan Charger will automatically trickle charge the battery keeping it at its optimum capacity.


In order to determine the approximate charge times the formula as below can be applied. capacity of the battery x 1.4 = charge time of the battery current of the charger

Battery Type Battery size Battery capacity Charge time
Ni-Cd AAA 400mAh 0.7 Hours
AA 800mAh 1.4 Hours
C 2200mAh 3.9 Hours
D 4400mAh 7.7 Hours
Ni-MH AAA 800mAh 1.4 Hours
AA 2300mAh 4 Hours
C 3300mAh 5-8 Hours
D 5000mAh 8 Hours
Alkaline AAA 1.5V <1.4V 2.5 Hours
AA 1.5V <1.4V 5 Hours
C 1.5V <1.4V 6 Hours
D 1.5V <1.4V 10 Hours
9V block 200mAh 7 Hours
