RS PRO Battery Charger

RS Basic 5 Plus EU/UK, NiMH/NiCd Battery Charger

All Battery Chargers, also known as a recharger, have one thing in common. The charging protocol is the same. The Battery Charger is feeding an electric current through batteries for a specific duration time. Introducing the 9V Battery Charger that is suitable to charge different kinds of rechargeable batteries such as nickel-cadmium (also called "nicad" or NiCd) or nickel-metal hydride (also called "NiMH). The nickel-based battery type is the oldest, whereas the NiMH batteries use the newer technology and look the same as nicads. The Battery Charger is for the UK and EURO plug and has charging indicators along with automatic matching of charging current. This feature allows you to avoid overcharging, which is generally worse than undercharging. It is not recommended to charge the batteries overnight. Always check the charging time either on the battery (often in tiny writing) or check the current rating and set the charge time accordingly. The cleaning process for any Battery Charger is the same. To clean the Charger, disconnect it from the power adaptor and use only a dry cloth. To ensure the correct function of the Charger, keep the charging contacts free from dust and dirt.

Rechargeable batteries can be used in many everyday items such as:

  • Smoke detectors

  • Transistor radios

  • Handheld test equipment

  • Some electronic toys

  • OEM applications (medical, wireless security, safety and industrial uses)


  • Use only with NiCD/NiMH cells

  • Non-rechargeable batteries or other types could cause an explosion!

  • Do not throw away any Alkaline batteries or different types of primary batteries

  • Do not dispose of batteries in a fire as the battery may explode, leak or catch fire

Frequently asked questions

How long does a rechargeable AA battery last?

If the batterie is looked after (stored in a cool and dry place, charged regularly) the average usage oscillates between 500-100 charges. This battery life translates to about 2 to 3 years of service.

How long should you charge rechargeable batteries the first time?

The best practice is to charge your batteries for about 14-16 hours before using it for the very first time. This process is called "initialising" and will provide the maximum battery capacity. It is advisable to leave the batteries to cool down before recharging.

How to select the right battery charger?

1. Firstly, you must choose a charger based on battery type
2. Then it would be best if you found out what is the battery size
3. Lastly, choose the correct Charger based on the expected outcome.

How do you dispose of a battery?

Batteries should not be thrown away with regular rubbish, and if they contact other pieces of metal or batteries, it can be dangerous. Take these batteries to a collection site for household hazardous waste. For safe disposal cover the positive and negative terminals with duct or electrical tape before disposing of the cell.

Safety Advice

  • Keep out of sight and reach of children

  • Do not connect batteries in parallel


  • All batteries are supplied with only a residual charge and should be charged at the continuous charge rate before use - they are not pre-charged for use

  • Always install the batteries correctly as per instruction

  • Ensure that the contact points are clean and conductive

  • Do not mix different types of battery

  • Do not dispose of in a fire


Do not connect batteries in parallel.
