EBL Smart Battery Charger Review

with 8 high capacity rechargeable batteries

Battery Charger

We live in a technological world of electronics, and a world where sustainability and efficiency are paramount. All those electronic gadgets, games and devices need power to work; everything from the humble television remote and wall clocks to the power hungry games console controllers and digital cameras. Some devices now come with USB rechargeable batteries built-in to them, but lots still require AA and AAA batteries – and good batteries can be expensive, and having to take them somewhere to dispose of properly can a pain (they really shouldn’t be thrown out with the household waste as they can cause fires). That makes a battery charger with rechargeable batteries a great investment; cheaper that constantly buying batteries regularly, you don’t have to worry about taking dead batteries to the supermarket to dispose of in their battery boxes and they promises to power your devices time and time again. And battery chargers are getting smarter, just like the EBL Smart Battery Charger with 8x AA rechargeable batteries.

The EBL Smart Battery Charger is a 8 port charger and comes with 8x AA rechargeable batteries with 2800mAh capacity. This smart battery charger comes with a built-in USB cable for charging from a USB port on your laptop or wall socket, plugging into a USB power adapter (2.0A) or even plugging into a portable power bank and it can charge batteries up to twice as fast as other chargers with a charging speed of 500mA for each battery slot. And unlike a lot of other battery chargers that I have used in the past, this charger doesn’t need the batteries to be in pairs as each charging bay is independent so you can charge 1 battery or all 8, and a mixture of AA and AAA.

The EBL rechargeable batteries each have a high capacity of 2800mAh with the ability to be recharged up to 1200 times (just imagine how much buying 1200 batteries would cost!). The batteries also feature a low self-discharge feature, which means they retain 80% of their charge even after three years of non-use. This is a game-changer for those who need reliable power in a pinch. No more finding your batteries drained when you need them the most! And what I love about these batteries is that the batteries come in handy plastic storage cases (4 in each case), ensuring that your batteries are organised and protected, ready for action whenever you are. It’s these thoughtful touches that elevate the EBL AA Rechargeable Batteries and Charger from mere products to a comprehensive power solution.

But what truly sets this battery charger apart is its built-in USB cable for charging; it eliminates the hassle of carrying extra cords, making it a perfect travel companion. The charger’s independent fast charging slots are a marvel, allowing you to charge any number of batteries, from one to eight, AA or AAA or even a mix of both. The flexibility it offers is unparalleled, adapting to your needs, whether at home or on the go. The cable pushes into the outside of the casing when not in use to keep it all neat and tidy.

The charger also features two ways to charge, via the built-in USB cable as mentioned above or your can simply plug in a micro-USB charger. It adds a layer of versatility to its design. It’s clear that EBL has thought of everything to make your charging experience as seamless as possible.

It also features a 12 layer SmartProtect System to protect the batteries and the charger:

  • Battery Temperature Protection
  • Charge Low and High Protection
  • Battery Short-Circuit Protection
  • Charging Undervoltage Protection
  • USB Overcharge Protection
  • Charging Overcurrent Protection
  • Charging Overvoltage Protection
  • Battery Overheat Protection
  • USB Port Overheat Protection
  • Built-in Cable Overheat Protection
  • Overcurrent Protection
  • Output Short Circuit Protection

Overall, the EBL Smart Battery Charger along with the high capacity rechargeable batteries are the dynamic duo everybody needs. As a USB battery charger, it can be used from a wall socket, laptop or power bank – making it a portable and versatile battery charger, one that can be used anywhere, anytime. It is simple to use, and the independent charging slots make it much easier to charge single batteries or all eight easily and in a combination of AA and AAA, with no pairing of batteries required. The LED display shows which battery is still charging and which ones are fully charged and will display any errors with any batteries.

I love that it charges Ni-MH or Ni-CD AA and AAA rechargeable batteries in any combination and any number. It automatically stops charging when a battery is fully charged and features air holes in each battery slot to keep the batteries cooler while charging. It charges batteries fast and they do keep their charge.

With a retail price of £26.99 for the charger and 8 AA high capacity rechargeable batteries in portable battery cases, it is a bargain. The batteries have a good life and can be charged 1200 times so you will get a good few years out of them. It is a fast charger and the batteries have a high capacity to power even the most power-hungry of devices.

Why waste money buying expensive disposable batteries for your TV remotes, game controllers and all those other power hungry devices when you can just use good quality rechargeable batteries. You really can’t go wrong with the EBL Battery Charger and Rechargeable Batteries. And by not having to throw so many spent batteries away, it is much better for the environment as well.
