Vanson Electronics Ltd. designs, manufactures and distributes high-quality battery chargers. It offers several models of rechargeable battery rechargers, each with its own special features. For example, if you need speed, Vanson offers a one-hour charger that is among the fastest on the market. In addition, it comes with a USB port, so that this charger can charge smart phones and other portable devices.

There are chargers that plug into the wall or into your car, in case you need to recharge while on the road. Several models can manage 100 to 240 volts, making them a good choice for travel outside the United States as well. The chargers carry international safety approvals, and Vanson sells its products worldwide.

It offers several sizes, with a small charger that handles only two batteries at a time and the largest Vanson model, which is able to charge eight. All the versions are AAA and AAA battery chargers, but some also work with C, D and 9V batteries. Some models can handle two or four AA, AAA, C or D batteries at a time, or one or two 9V batteries. All the models have an LED light to indicate the charging status, and some can automatically detect and use the right kind of current for the batteries installed.

All the models offer safety features to prevent the batteries from overcharging or overheating. Some of the models have a negative delta-V shut off, which turns off the charger automatically once the battery is full. Some models have a mechanical reverse-polarity shut off instead, while at least one works on a timer system.

Although this manufacturer says it works with batteries of all types, its website only lists products that recharge nickel cadmium (NiCd) and nickel-metal hydride (HiMH) batteries. You should read the product information before attempting to recharge any other kind of batteries. NiCd and NiMH batteries are the most common rechargeable batteries.

The Vanson line of rechargeable battery rechargers offers several safe, economic and ecological options for recharging batteries of all types. Its chargers work with power systems around the world and follow international regulations. The quick charge model is among the fastest we’ve seen.
