PRESS RELEASE: Maha Announces a Battery Charger-Analyzer from the Future!
La Verne, CA - Nov 8, 2006 -- Maha Energy, the maker of Powerex batteries and chargers, is pleased to announce its most significant product in five years: MH-C9000 WizardOne Battery Charger & Analyzer. Suitable for the casual consumer users, enthusiast and professionals, WizardOne is capable of charging, conditioning, analyzing, cycling, forming and discharging one to four AA or AAA batteries, all while digitally displaying the battery capacity and voltage. All four slots can be operated independently in different modes and settings. A total of five modes are available.
Those seeing the unit for the first time will be struck by its large LCD screen, backlit by ultra-bright white LEDs. Measuring over 3.5" by 1.5", the display is more than three times larger than its closest competition and shows a wealth of information that is easy to read.
In addition to the standard charging, conditioning and discharging, the WizardOne charger-analyzer also offers two unusual operations modes. The "Break-In" mode allows the user to input the capacity of the battery and performs a "forming" charge designed to properly break-in new batteries. The "Cycle" mode allows user to charge and discharge batteries consecutively while storing the capacity for up to 15 cycles.
There are ten selectable charging and discharging current from 0.2A to 2.0A and 0.1A to 1.0A respectively. The charger also features four independent temperature sensors using Maha's latest temperature rise detection algorithm in addition to the usual peak temperature detection. It also armed with additional patented termination algorithms found in other Maha chargers.
The unit can be operated in a "basic" and "advanced" mode. In the basic mode, user merely needs to insert the batteries with no further key press. The charger will select the appropriate settings automatically, making it suitable for the casual users.
The WizardOne is also incredibly accurate. Using a quartz oscillator time base typically found in computer boards, it is able to report capacity within 1% accuracy across multiple units making battery benchmarking more meaningful.
MH-C9000 will ship in December 2006 with a MSRP of $69.95. The standard package will include a worldwide travel power supply. A 12V car adapter is available as an option.
Founded in 1993, Maha Energy Corporation designs, manufactures and markets batteries and chargers under one roof. Armed with a robust core technology portfolio and a precision manufacturing operation, Maha seeks to provide consumers, professional and companies with the state-of-the-art products.
