C. Crane’s shipping, returns and repairs departments will be closed on Friday 4/24 while we move our warehouse to a new facility. Our new shipping address as of 4/27 will be 172 Main Street, Fortuna CA 95540.
Prices shown in currencies other than US Dollars are estimates based on current exchange rates. We will charge your credit card in US Dollars on the day your order is shipped, and the conversion to your local currency will be done at the prevailing rate by your credit card issuer.
C. Crane will not mark your parcel as a “gift”, declare a value lower than the actual price paid, or otherwise prepare false customs information.
You may have noticed this new acronym popping up on some of our products. RoHS stands for Restrictions on Hazardous Substances, and it's a directive that could have a huge impact on the production and disposal of consumer electronics. First adopted in Europe in 2006 (and later adopted in California in 2007), RoHS restricts the use of six dangerous substances in lots of common electronics. According to the official RoHS compliance Web site (www.rohs.eu), the RoHS symbol indicates that "new electrical and electronic equipment put on the market does not contain any of the six banned substances: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, poly-brominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), in quantities exceeding maximum concentration values."
While some military and medical equipment is exempt from RoHS compliance, the electronics governed by the standard are among the most common you'll find in your home, from radios to MP3 players to cell phones and (increasingly) computers. In practical terms, the standard protects factory workers at the production level, sharply reducing their exposure to hazardous substances. The standard also has a profound impact on the disposal and recycling of electronics, in that disposed substances will no longer have at least six of the most hazardous chemicals formerly found in electronics, and recycled electronics will not expose workers to toxics as they harvest components.
The CC Quick Charger-2 can be a great investment. Other battery chargers can overcharge batteries creating heat, which reduces battery life. The QuickCharger-2 has a micro-controller that monitors the charging status of each battery and shuts it off at the right time so it does not overcharge. This smart technology is called "Negative Delta V" and is considered one of the best ways of extending the lifetime of rechargeable batteries.
Insert any combination of "AAA", "AA", "C", or "D" or two 9-volt NiMH in any state of charge and close the lid. You can be charging one set of batteries while another set is in use. This means no more last minute trips to the grocery store for high priced batteries. You can recharge NiMH batteries about 500 times and they last for years.
A discharge option is also available which can be used to improve the capacity of new or seldom used batteries. Additional features include an LCD display screen that shows each battery and its charge level as it charges or discharges. The LCD display will also let you know if the battery is bad or is causing a short circuit. And there is a safety timer built in for extra protection to prevent overcharging in special circumstances. There is a USB port in back for charging your MP3 player, cell phone or other USB devices. When using the USB port for charging, you must remove any batteries you have in the charger or wait until they have finished charging before the USB port will activate. The Quick Charger-2 is not recommended for charging NiCad type batteries.
The CC QuickCharger-2 comes with a 100-240V AC adapter for use in USA or overseas. It's so versatile you can even use an optional 12V DC car adapter to power it for charging in a vehicle, during emergencies or for off-the-grid use. Batteries not included.

An Important Note: The CC Quick Charger-2 comes with a 60-day satisfaction guarantee. If returned within 60 days of the purchase date, a refund will be issued based on your original payment method. Because this is a closeout item the parts & labor warranty is void. Please contact us if you have any questions. Thank you.

The CC Quick Charger-2 has a special technology which monitors each battery's voltage change. Once a battery is fully charged it will start to decrease slightly in voltage. At this point the charger recognizes this change, discontinues the fast charge, and switches to the trickle charge for a few hours to top off the battery.
The CC Quick Charger-2 is designed to charge NiMH batteries only.
When batteries are first inserted the charger will take some time to evaluate them. If a battery’s voltage is lower than 0.2V or higher than 2.2V, the battery will be classified as a bad cell. The word "Bad" will indicate on the LCD screen and "battery icon" will flash on the LCD screen.
There is a good chance that you are using old batteries that have lost their charge capacity. It is possible to recover some of their rated capacity by charging and discharging them over several cycles. They should begin to take longer to charge once they are conditioned further. It is also a good idea to condition new batteries for several cycles to obtain their full capacity.
You may also be using the wrong type of batteries. Batteries should have "NiMH" printed on the outside to indicate that they are the correct technology.
Yes, this is a common characteristic of High-Capacity batteries. This is because it takes a little longer for high capacity batteries to indicate to the charger that they are fully charged. The maximum battery temperature should be less than 120 degrees F and should not burn you when touched. The Quick Charger-2 has a backup auto-off timer that discontinues charging if it takes too long. This is to preserve your battery’s long life and also to insure your safety.
Yes. After charging is completed a '25-50mA' trickle charge will be applied for an amount of time depending on the size of the battery. Although the battery will be classified as "FULL" and is ready to be used, the trickle charge will "top off" the battery for extra capacity.
It has a constant discharge rate of 350mA. For example a 2200mAh capacity battery discharged at a rate of 350mA would take 6.3 hours to discharge.
Yes, it uses a 12V, 2.5mm x 5.5mm, center tip positive plug.
You can mix and match AAA, AA, C, D and 9V batteries.
No, recharging alkaline batteries in the CC Quick Charger-2 can cause them to leak and possibly ruin the devices that they are used in.
No, the USB charging feature will not work at the same time as the batteries are charging. Once charging is complete, the USB port will start charging an attached device.
After the primary charge has finished, a trickle charge will continue for several hours depending on the size of battery used. The display backlight will shut off after the trickle charge is complete.
