Our Opinion and review of the Ansmann PowerLine 4 Pro Battery Charger and Battery Analyser
Well we've been playing with the Ansmann Powerline 4 Pro for a little while now and what a great little battery charger it is. Not only is it able to act just like any intelligent battery charger, so just insert your rechargeable batteries and let it get on with charging them, but the PowerLine 4 Pro is also a powerful battery analyser.
It may not have as many settings as the Powerex Wizard One (MAHA C9000) or be quite as powerful but the PowerLine 4 Pro from Ansmann is half the size, comes with the In-Car lead and has plenty of settings to be able to know just how good your rechargeable batteries really are.
The Ansmann PowerLine 4 Pro comes with a compact mains adapter that includes interchangeable plugs for use in Europe and the UK. Also included is an In-car power lead, so you can charge test and analyse your batteries on the go for any standard car cigar lighter socket.
The Ansmann PowerLine 4 Pro functions:
As you might expect in this setting the PowerLine 4 Pro will charge your batteries then drop to a trickle charge once complete. All batteries are charged independently of each other, so you can insert them in any order at any time and mix battery capacities and sizes as you need to.
By default the PowerLine 4 Pro will charge at 600mA, but you can also set charge rates of 400mA, 600mA or 800mA when charging 1 - 4 batteries at a time, you can also charge at 1500mA and 1800mA if only charging 1 or 2 rechargeable batteries
In this mode, the Powerline 4 Pro will discharge your rechargeable batteries before moving on to the Charge cycle. The discharge rate defaults to 300mA, but like the charge routine you can alter this to one of the 3 discharge options - 200mA, 300mA or 400mA
This is a clever routine that discharges and recharges your batteries repeatedly (up to 10 times) till no improvement in battery capacity if measured. Again you can set the charge and discharge rates in the same way as you can with the dedicated charge and discharge routines.
This refresh routine is a great way of recovering old rechargeable batteries or those that just haven't been used for a while.
This Test routine will charge, discharge then recharge your rechargeable batteries, then at the end will report the measured discharge capability of each of the rechargeable batteries in mAh or Ah. This is a great way of find out just how much each or your rechargeable batteries is able to deliver, but remember that this is never likely to be as good as the capacity shown of the battery label.
In function the Ansmann PowerLine 4 Pro is similar to the Technoline chargers we have seen before, but it feels like a higher quality unit, well designed and manufactured, and of course all Ansmann battery chargers come with a 3 year warranty giving you great long term peace of mind.
So we really like the Ansmann Powerline 4 Pro and it gets our "Staff Choice" award.
