Duracell CEF14 Battery Charging Time

Duracell CEF14 is not a super fast charger but charges your batteries in moderate time. Super fast chargers charges batteries very fast but usually that batteries discharge faster.

According to specs given by the Duracell, Duracell Battery Charger can charge 1.300 mAh AA nickel metal hydride (NiMH) rechargeable batteries in 4-hours up to 90% capacity. Certainly that time may change with capacity and brands of battery. I charge my 4 count 1.900 mAh Evolta batteries in 5-6 hours with CEF14. That much time is fairly fine for me. I start charging before sleeping and I get fully charged batteries in the morning. This is fairly enough for me.

Can I Charge All Batteries with Duracell Charger?

Just insert 2 or 4 AA/AAA battery in to the CEF14 charger and forget the rest! You will get perfectly charged batteries after 6-7 hours. Be sure that, this charged batteries will last much more than regular batteries.

I bought my Duracell charger with the bundle of 2 count 1.300 mAh Duracell AA batteries + 2 count 750 mAh Duracell AAA batteries. I must admit that bundled Duracell batteries is not as good as CEF14 charger. All of the Duracell batteries are dead in a few months! For this reason, if you find a deal for only CEF14 charger with lower price, it is safe to prefer it. If you can’t find, no problem: Use perfect Duracell Battery Charger CEF14, but don’t expect something much from Duracell batteries. Instead you can use perfect Panasonic Eneloop batteries.
