Description

Here at Firebox we love batteries. A large proportion of the products we sell wouldn't work without them. And a powerless gizmo is about as much use as a knitted light bulb. In short, batteries rule. That said, we're like anyone else when the flippin' things go flat. Because in terms of disappointment, picking up a gadget and discovering that the batteries have had it is right up there with making a fry-up and discovering there's no sauce.


Varta Charge & Go Charger So thank goodness for rechargeables. When French physicist Gaston Planté invented the first rechargeable battery back in 1859, he would have had little idea of the impact his twin sheets of lead, separated by rubber strips, rolled into a spiral and immersed in a solution containing about 10% sulphuric acid would have on the battery-buying masses. Of course, rechargeable batteries no longer resemble something pilfered from a nutty professor's lab - battery technology has moved on sparks and poles - a point that the incredible Varta Charge & Go system demonstrates with great aplomb.

Varta Charge & Go Charger This amazingly chic little charger is capable of re-energizing two batteries in only 15 minutes! That's right, in less time than it takes a Big Brother housemate's star to dwindle, this compact, ultra-efficient unit can charge two AA or two AAA batteries to full capacity. Spring-loaded battery bays allow you to insert either size of what, in old money, were referred to as penlight batteries. Simply plug Charge & Go in and, er, go! A handy LED goes out when charging is complete and the unit automatically switches over to trickle charge.

Varta Charge & Go Charger Considering the price of regular batteries we don't need to tell you how quickly the Charge & Go pays for itself. Better still, unlike old-school, overnight enormochargers, this smart little unit can power up your batteries in a flash. Buy one incredibly massive, ridiculously slow charger? No way, we just Charge & Go!

    Please note:
    The Varta Charge & Go Charger can be used for ultra fast, 15 minute, charging of special I-C3 rechargeable batteries and for standard (15 hour) charging of conventional Ni-MH rechargeable batteries of AA and AAA size.


    Getting started:
    1. When using the charger for the first time, remove the batteries from the charger and remove the small insulation strip. The removal of the batteries may require a little effort (spring tension).

    2. The charger accepts 1 to 2 AA or AAA batteries. Following the instructions provided, insert the batteries with the positive (+) end against the sliding contact of the battery compartment and push the battery firmly into the compartment.

    3. Connect the charger to the power source using the provided power cable.

    4. When the green LED goes on, it indicates that the charging is in progress. When charging is completed, the green LED goes out and the charger automatically switches over to trickle mode.


    Safety instructions:
    • Warning: this charger is for use with I-C3 rechargeable batteries and conventional Ni-MH batteries only. Charging non-rechargeable batteries may cause personal injury and/or damage to the charger.

    • Never attempt to charge corroded, damaged or leaking batteries.

    • In case of damage or malfunction of the charger or its components contact authorised personnel only.


    Further instructions:
    • Place the charger on a dry and stable surface at room temperature. Avoid warm of vibrating surfaces and don't cover the charger.

    • The I-C3 charger is intended for indoor use only. Do not expose to dirt, dust or chemical vapours.

    • Avoid contact with water or any other liquid. In case of such contact, immediately unplug before attempting to dry or clean it.

    • Keep the contacts of the charger and of the rechargeable batteries clean by using only a dry cloth.

    • Never attempt to charge I-C3 batteries and normal Ni-MH batteries at the same time.

    • The I-C3 charger makes a humming sound during charging of I-C3 batteries (cooling fan noise) and it is normal that batteries become warm during charging.

    • In order to start a new charging process, just remove the charged batteries and insert new ones. The charger will restart automatically.

    • Unplug the charger when not in use and remove all batteries from the battery compartments. Store the charger in a dry area.

    • Batteries are not inserted properly. Remove batteries and reload.

    • Wrong or defective batteries. Do not attempt to use these batteries.

    • Operating temperature is too high (> 40ºC) or too low (< -15ºC). Let the charger and batteries adjust to room temperature before recharging.
