Panasonic branded chargers

The first 9 chargers below are Panasonic BQ-CC01 - BQ-CC10 chargers that were produced until 2013 from when they started carrying the Eneloop trademark. But to make this website as complete as possible, I`m adding the manuals for as much of these chargers as I could possibly find. The BQ-CC04 does not exist, probably due to the number 4, which is an unlucky number in Japan as it`s related to the word death.

Panasonic BQ-CC18

Type: 4-bay dumb charger

Date:
 unknown
Charge: AAA, AA 2 or 4  batteries
Charge rate std AA: 200mA (2 or 4 batteries)
Charge rate std AAA: 100mA (2 or 4 batteries)
Individual charging: No
Colors: White
Voltage: Intl. 100-240V 50-60Hz
Market: Overseas only, not available in Japan
Other info: It charges continually for 13 hours. It`s a dumb charger, which means that it will continually charge for 13 hours. It will not stop when the batteries are full. I do not recommend this charger! Reviewed by HKJ. There is also another BQ-C51 which I think is the same, just looks a little different.

Panasonic BQ-CC20

Type: 2-bay AA charger

Manual: JP version 
Date:
 2011
Charge: AA 1-2  batteries
Charge rate std AA: 450mA
Charge rate std AAA: not possible
Individual charging: Yes
Colors: Green and white
Voltage: Intl. 100-240V 50-60Hz
Market: Japan only.
Other info: This is not an eneloop charger, this is from before Panasonic branded eneloops.

Evolta-kun is his name.
His eyes will change colors during charging.
This is not an eneloop, but a Panasonic Evolta branded.
I don`t like the way they coded this charger. BQ-CC20 comes after 11, 17 and 18, (which were sold with eneloop batteries). So although this one is from 2011 it was already called the BQ-CC20.

Panasonic BQ-CC21

Type: 4-bay smart charger

Manual: JP version 
Date:
Japan, April 2013
Charge: AAA, AA 1-4  batteries
Charge rate std AA: 550mA (1-2 batteries 4 hours, 3-4 batteries 8 hours)
Charge rate std AAA: 275mA (1-2 batteries 1.5 hours, 3-4 batteries 3 hours)
Individual charging: Yes
Colors: White and Black
Voltage: Intl. 100-240V 50-60Hz
Market: Japan only
Other info: Available in black and white, separately only in white. Just like many other Panasonic chargers it chargers double the speed when used with only 1-2 batteries. The charge rate above is for 4 batteries only. 550mA*2=1100mA per battery when charged alone, or in pair.

Panasonic BQ-CC22

Type: 4-bay smart charger

Manual: JP version 
Date:
Japan, April 2013
Charge: AAA 1-2 batteries, AA 1-4  batteries
Charge rate std AA: 275mA (1-2 batteries 4 hours, 3-4 batteries 8 hours)
Charge rate std AAA: 138mA (1-2 batteries 3 hours) in combination with 2AA, 6 hours)
Individual charging: Yes
Colors: White
Voltage: Intl. 100-240V 50-60Hz
Market: Japan only
Other info: Not available separately, only with a set of batteries. There are only 2 AAA slots, and 4 AA slots. So the rate mentioned above is with 1-4AA and 1-2AAA +AA.

Panasonic BQ-CC23

Type: 2-bay smart charger

Manual: JP version 
Date:
Japan, April 2013
Charge: AAA, AA 1-2  batteries

Panasonic BQ-CC24

Type: 2-bay lite charger

Manual: JP version 
Date:
Japan, April 2013
Charge: AAA, AA 1-2  batteries
Charge rate AA lite: 160mA (7hours)
Charge rate AAA lite: 105mA (7 hours?)
Individual charging: Yes
Colors: White
Voltage: Intl. 100-240V 50-60Hz
Market: Japan only
Other info: Only available with eneloop Lite batteries and Panasonic Evolta. Not for sale without any batteries. The Japanese manual only shows charging time for Lite batteries. So I assume Std and Pro can`t be fully charged with this charger. So not recommended for other lite cells.

Panasonic BQ-CC25 / BQ-CC15

Type: 4-bay charger

Manual: JP version see BQ-CC15 for intl version.
Date:
Japan, April 2013
Charge: 9V,D, C, AAA,AA 1-4  batteries

Other info: A D and C size charger plus 9V. 4 bays, with 2 slots left and 2 slots right. Max 2 batteries per 2 slots, don`t mix 2 types in these 2 slots. 1 type on left 2 bays, and another type on right 2 bays is fine however. I don`t understand AAA is 6 hours if charge current is 180mA. BQ-CC25 seems to be the same, but only available in Japan. BC-CC15 is available worldwide.

Other info: This is a charger especially designed for eneloop lite. It will charge rather slowly. It does not have an indicator if a battery is full. Automatically stops after 6 hours charging. Stops charging when full, but LED will stay on till 6 hours.  Personally I don`t recommend this behavior.

It can detect if the battery is rechargeable or not. It can also detect if a battery is in bad shape.
