is now shipping its third generation of universal battery chargers.
The PIXO C4 Universal Quick Charger is an entirely new development with improved mechanics and electronics. It offers faster charging times as well as more comfortable handling and uses silver-plated 3D flex contacts. This unique design charges 3.4-4.2 V + 6.8-8.4 V Lithium-Ion and Lithium Polymer battery packs from digital cameras and camcorders*.
Polarity and voltage are detected automatically and the charger features a Battery Activator Function to revive deeply discharged Lithium-Ion battery packs which saves users money as it means they don't have to buy new battery packs. The C4 also charges up to four (2+2) NiMH/NiCd AA-Mignon or AAA-Micro round cells at a time.
Charging times are 1-4 hours with a charge current of 800 mA and four LED displays allow the user to keep track of the charge process.
With two USB high power outputs, offering a total power of 10 watts (2 x 1000 mA), the C4 outperforms those models which only feature one low power USB output. The USB outputs are also Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod compatible, plus a USB cable with micro and mini plugs is included to charge none Apple compatible smartphones and notepads. Two smartphones or one notepad can be charged at the same time together with one Lithium-Ion battery pack or four AA-Mignon or AAA-Micro round cells.
The charger comes with an eco-design low power consumption mains adapter and a 12 V car cigarette lighter plug for charging on-the-go.
The retail price for the Black Edition PIXO C4 Universal Quick Charger is £29.90 and £34.90 for the Neon Greed edition. The PIXO C4 chargers are exclusively sold factory direct on Ebay.
