Behind the packaging, you can see the device specification. Well, there is some kind of Chinese mathematics also written- for charging AA batteries the maximum current of up to 550 mA x 4 is announced. However, that is more than 2.2 A at the input, while 5B 1A is explicitly shown in the line above. We think that this is the maximum current for each slot. For AAA batteries a more credible current is indicated – 225 mA * 4 = 0.9 A. The rest of the 10% current can be considered as a loss for the working of the charger itself.
