The First 8.5-Minute Battery Charger — New from Sakar International

LAS VEGAS (2005 International CES, January 6, 2005) — Now you can charge two AA batteries in less time than it takes to drink your coffee with the 8.5-Minute Supersonic Charger, the world’s fastest battery charger from Sakar International.

Just plug Sakar’s special NiMH charging batteries into the unit, grab your Starbucks, and 8.5 minutes later you’ll have fully charged cells that last 10 times longer than their standard counterparts — whether you use them in MP3 or CD players, digital cameras, or any other power-hungry product. Regular NiMH rechargeables can be charged in one hour, eliminating overnight waits.

The secret: patent-pending RD4 technology that accelerates charging by enabling batteries to withstand high current levels. The charging batteries can be recharged up to 1,000 times, and even partial charges will not reduce the cells’ capacity or cycle life because they are 100% memory-free.

A green LED indicates whether the battery is charging or fully charged, and the system operates on both 100V and 240V power for worldwide use.

Each 8.5 Minute Supersonic Charger package includes the charging unit and two AA 8.5-minute charging batteries at an MSRP of $59.99. Extra charging batteries are available separately at an MSRP of $9.99 for a AA two-pack or $19.99 for a four-pack.
