The new VARTA Consumer LCD Universal Charger combines state-of-the-art technology with unique, modern design. Thanks to its generous slot, this jack of all trades allows users to charge up to five different types of batteries, while a USB port makes it possible to charge external devices at the same time. A blue, illuminated, easy-to-read LCD display lets users monitor the charging progress of each battery individually. The charger is equipped with a wide range of safety features. A safety timer, short-circuit protection and automatic charge protection help prevent batteries from becoming overloaded. The Universal Charger also recognizes cells that are too old and no longer any good. Its elegant gray frame gives the LCD Universal Charger a premium look, making it the perfect accessory for every room.
