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. If you read on, we’ll let you in on our review of the new Ryobi P128 Upgrade Kit and explain to you what reverse polarity means on a battery charger.
