Deal?? Maha MH-C9000 Advanced Battery Charger AA/AAA $49.97

I have been wanting one of these type of smart chargers for a long time. They had the Lacrosse BC-900 for $29.99 but when I went to order they were gone. Sad I also had a look at the Shan & IQ328. So, I ordered this MN-C9000 charger this morning. It’s already ready for shipping, got a tracking # Smile I’ll be using it for my new eneloops & duraloops. Let me know what you think!

Hmm… I just checked and the local vendor I bought mine from has them on sale too. I wonder if Maha will be coming out with an upgraded verson soon.

Regardless, it’s a pretty good charger and well worth what you paid for it. Enjoy! Smile

I have had that one for years, charging my 40+ Eneloops and Imedions for flash units in my photography. Read the manual, don’t do like Alfred and load the middle…always load from the left and put highest capacity cells first if you mix em up. Easier on the charger and more accurate on the charge rates if you follow the instructions.

I also have the MH C808M that charges D size on down, honkin big charger going 8 up on D cells but together I can charge 16 AA’s at a time. Remember to use the recycle option once in a while and where possible the soft charge to keep your cells cool and make em last longer. Put a cell in the left slot, punch the soft charge button. Then load the rest. As long as there are cells in the charger it will stay on soft charge mode. Takes longer, but it’s better for the cells. If you hit recycle AND soft charge, it’ll take forever!

The bigger 808 has a faster charge rate as well as a lighted screen.

Enjoy!

Just wanted aftrburnr to go about it right from the get go. Wink I usually pull em as they’re done as well, I keep them in groups so the same batteries work together in the same flash. Not exactly sure WHY I do that, but it’s the way I’ve done it for the last 6 years or so. Cells are marked for the flash unit, dated, and stored in boxes of 4 ready to go.

With older lower capacity cells to the right, even AAA cells on the right. No problems.

As I’m posting this, it is 52.97 at Amazon, shipping included, which may be cheaper.

I did a while ago got invoiced for shipping to Australia (they had to do it manually) but it was more than I was willing to pay.

I can add it to my cart now but it dissapears when I go to checkout.

Ill try with my addblocker off and maybe another browser and see if it works.

edit
Works fine on IE, it asks you to log in or check out as guest.

On Chrome it seems bugged.

Yep, all your information was correct, in IE it works.

I didn’t fill in everything to find out what shipping cost though, I assume at least five dollars, probably $7.00.

I am working with **** on the dream universal charger, so if you guyz can waitz, then hold your breath and give us half a year until release.

In the meantime, if it’s about budget, you can also look into the C9000 clone (made in China, licensed and marketed by Denmark, sold by Netherland, priced in Euroland):

http://ru.nkon.nl/japcell-bc-4001-charger.html


They don’t ship it to the EU?!?!? No eu countries appear on the shipping list, not even Netherlands. Very strange not shipping locally, maybe it’s because it’s not CE approved? Or is it an error on my browser?
Did someone try it yet?
EDIT:
OK, i found he problem, you linked ru.nkon.nl. they have also EU.nkon.nl, but the prices are a bit higher

Mooooooo

I might have to get one… my nitecore intellicharge i4 v2 just charged 4 of my NiMHs to 1.36v…
At least I only have 1 AA light left which I hardly ever use, that softens the blow.

The guy I called at Thomas Distributing said it has a 3 year warranty on it.

@alfreddajero You’re part of the reason I bought this charger! See what you did! Wink

@DBCstm Thanks for your tips! I’ll be studying the manual. Have already done some reading on it.

ezarc: I should have asked you first! You’re the deal finder fo sho!! Well, it turns out they have a store in Phoenix, AZ. It’s on the other side of town from me & about 30 miles away. BUT, good to know I can go get one there if I ever needed. The other things would be local tax I think about 9% or so & 2-3 gallons of gas @ $3.43 a gallon back & forth. Then again, I wouldn’t have to wait till next week for it.

@kreisler I’d love to see a VP1 4 bay with possibly a few more features like the MH-C9000 has. I’m also looking at the SkyRC if the price comes down a bit. Maybe a VP1 4 bay with all the features of the SkyRC? w00t!

@brad I was able to add it to my cart just fine using Firefox 22.0

w00t? no problem!!

some bfl douches opine that dino does anything but contribute to da community but plain wrong. the new product will kick c9000 old b*tt and make look vp1 4bay old and thus be an immense contribution to the community.

HKJ is on my side and it’s going to be more sensational than Aasgard flop. so please do hold your breath if you are reading this deleted post. Wink

and sorry for talking that large, ‘s da **cky kreisl style  Party

If you’re genuine about all this then I am grateful. Thanks kreisl.

yes, i am, you’re welcome. this aint no jesting or blahing, the **** dream universal charger is happening and you can be part of it too by participating in the related polls (thanks!). thanks for thanking and for believing in my integrity, it’s de kriesl speaking and not the dinotroll after all Smile

trust me, if you’re looking into a cross (and even better!) between c9000 and **** xp4, then give us half a year or so and do not buy c9000 or xp4.

you’ll be rewarded for your wait, trust me. i have full confidence in the outcome. Smile

 


And will it be cheaper than the maha 9000? If so, I’ll patiently wait for it

fabulous, versatile charger. One thing to point out is that Maha Energy’s customer service is very good- I had one from Amazon that wasn’t performing right, and Eric from Maha swapped it for me for a new one no questions asked, he even paid the shipping.

I have 3 i4s in addition to my 2 C9000s……they are also great chargers…..using them more every day. Only issue is they don’t fit 26650 without using a coin as spacer- so I picked up 2 Trustfire TR-006, so far they’re working fine.

That’s another reason I chose this charger was for the service after the sale. I have read about some not so good stories about this charger as well. Just like anything else I guess. There’s always gonna be some that aren’t 100%.

MAP-free product and there is a price point in mind and it will be worth every penny. i can foresee that the price will follow the market similar to maha 9000 history/success. 9000 started at ~90$ MSRP at market introduction and then after years of steady sales amazon settled at ~50$. You’ll see the same development for many MAP-free chargers.

please wait patiently for it, an introductory price offer is planned to get the ball rolling right off the start. don’t worry, i’ll work hard to make it happen.


Care to share a bit more upon specifics ?
No doubt multiple folks here have ideas’ and or desires that they hope would be integrated Smile

Nah, not interested in expulsion, just rather you get it right the first time, so we don’t have to wait another 6 months after sending you back to the drawing board Smile
BTW, I do appreciate why you’re unable to provide specifics such as the technology you plan to integrate features, was more a desire to see what features you’re contemplating thus far and are you open to suggestions from us prospective users Smile

I like my Maha C9000, its been a reliable performer for years now. And I prefer to balance charge the Li-Ions I use in bigger lights with an RC charger. But I wanted something decent for single cells.

Now, I don’t trust promises about products that don’t exist yet, especially when the proponent is slamming competing products and suggesting I don’t buy them. Also, many promised products never happen – just look at Apple.

So I ordered an Xtar VP1, mostly because of the favourable review HKJ gave it. And I also really liked the choice of .25, .5 and 1.0A charge rates.

@photon1k Getting a bit off topic but I plan on also getting a SkyRC or something like it, 1-2 VP1 and 1-2 Nitecore i4. A hobby charger would be nice but they look like they would take a bit more work than I have time for atm.

Based on reviews the VP1 seems like a nice charger. The Nitecore didn’t review as well (see the review), but the v2 edition did show some improvement.

Hobby chargers are a trade-off. You give up a little ease of use for a lot of flexibility and power. If you don’t have multi-cell lights, or you don’t want to balance or parallel charge them their cells, then you may be happier with just a couple VP1s.

This ebay seller accepted my offer of 27.00 GBP which is about $42.00. That includes shipping.
