Yep.

Rapidly charges AA/AAA batteries in the car or any standard wall outlet in 2 hours 100~240v for worldwide use 4 LCD indicators: Each LCD light indicates the status of charging or discharging from 0 to 100 percent Advanced technology prevents overcharging Includes 12~24v DC car charger

May be smart but I'd recommend this one.

I have it and it is super and refreshes older cells saving me from throwing out some very servicable ones.

the one you listed has independent charging ciruits, and measures -delta V and slope detection,

it is real smart,


and that is a good find by the way... most that are smart aren't that cheap

i've been using my dad's MH-C777PLUS-II and have been really impressed! i don't know if this is the most current model available... Link



i've been charging my Nikon SLR li-ion, Canon xl2 li-ion, rc car nimh, AA nimh, AAA nimh, etc. i've been able to declutter my desk, kitchen counter, dining room table, etc and free up like a dozen outlets around the house! anywho, the versatility of a good universal charger easily justifies the pricetag.
