Battery chargers basically input electricity into an electrical cell or rechargeable cell for continuous use. Battery chargers input electricity into the empty cells thereby making them useful again. However, when choosing a battery charger, you need to know the charge current needed by your empty cells as this might impede proper charging and ultimately destroy your battery but don’t worry as sellers can help you out. For example, car batteries will need a much higher current than what your mobile device will need.
Like most devices, battery chargers come in different types to suit your charging needs for various kinds of applications and these include Trickle charger which, by its name, enables slow charging, Fast chargers, like the name implies, enables rapid charging, Inductive chargers, which are portable, use electromagnetic induction and solar energy to power devices. Battery eliminators on the other hand, are equipped in battery chargers that have filtering and voltage regulation as some chargers do not posses these traits especially one that are connected to a battery.

Next up is a list of different types of chargers for you to choose from and what they can do.
If you’re looking for a battery that charges at a glacial pace then a trickle charger is just the right one for you as it powers up an empty cell at a discharge rate. You may power up your empty cells or rechargeable batteries for as long as you want while charging on a trickle battery and not worry about overcharging.
If you are always on the go and need to get things done fast, then a fast charger is the best partner for your daily charging needs and without the worry of damaging your precious devices. Fast means a lot of heat therefore to protect your charging device from potentially damaging itself and the battery, a cooling fan is installed. Some fast chargers are sophisticated enough to charge batteries without controlled circuitry and still do the job.
If you are in need of portable chargers that use natural energy like that of the sun then get yourself a solar charger. Most portable chargers can only make use of the sun’s energy to be able to charge.
Inductive chargers on the other hand are useful in electromagnetic induction way of powering up batteries. The fascinating thing about inductive chargers is that it doesn’t require metal contacts between charger and battery.
Other types are those you use for your mobile devices that are USB based.
