La Crosse Technology BC-500 Alpha Power Portable Battery Charger

La Crosse Technology BC-500 Alpha Power Portable Battery Charger

  • Portable charger for all NiCd and NiMH rechargeable AA and AAA batteries
  • Simultaneous recharge; different current for each channel; can charge, discharge, or test
  • Overheat detection to prevent over-charging; detects defective batteries
  • Comes with 2 AA batteries, AC/DC power adapter, and car adapter
  • Measures 2 by 3 by 5 inches; 1-year warranty included
This is the most basic model and does not charge nearly as fast as the BC-700, BC-900, BC-9009, or BC-1000. A quality budget choice, the BC-500 is smaller in size (good for traveling) and can be used with a car adapter (others cannot). The LCD display has less information than the other chargers (only voltage and % charged). The charging current is fixed on the BC-500, on the other models it is adjustable for optimal performance. 3 modes (charge, discharge, test) does not include the "refresh" mode that is available in the other models. Additionally, you cannot have different modes applied on the individual batteries (as with the BC-1000/900/700). Instead, the mode is applied to all batteries in the bay.

Overall the BC-500 is an excellent charger, but with the BC-700 also being a great value, we'd recommend the BC-700 over the BC-500 in the home, and we'd put the BC-500 in our travel bag for taking it on the road.
