Many mobile electronic devices like cameras, MP3 players and GPS units use batteries that enter landfills when they are depleted. Rechargeable batteries reduce the amount of waste created from disposing of used batteries. Energizer battery chargers, available in either trickle or quick-charge, charge batteries of sizes commonly used in mobile electronics, remote controls and children's toys. Using an Energizer battery charger correctly ensures an extended battery life and eliminates injuries caused by exploding batteries.
Wipe the inside of the battery charger with a rag.
Inspect each rechargeable battery for signs of damage or corrosion. A corroded battery has white powdery residue on the sides of the battery or at the terminals located on the ends of the battery.
Insert the batteries into the charger with the battery marking matched to the markings on the battery charger. For example, place the negative (-) side of the battery at the negative (-) side of the battery charger.
Pivot the two prongs located on the back of the charger away from the charger battery or plug the barrel plug into the side of an Energizer quick charger. Plug the charger into a wall outlet.
Unplug the battery charger when the charge light turns green. Remove the batteries from the charger.
