More sustainability in daily life with VARTA’s new Easy Chargers

Taking an important step towards greater sustainability can be very easy: simply use rechargeable batteries more often in daily life. With the new Easy Charger series, VARTA presents powerful battery chargers in an attractive modern design. These four new products – Mini Charger, Plug Charger, Universal Charger and Multi Charger – are now available in stores.

Living more sustainably is a high priority for many people. It’s easy to start by taking small steps: for example, by using rechargeable batteries such as VARTA Recharge Accus Power in combination with appropriate chargers. Especially with battery-operated devices that consume a lot of power, this simultaneously reduces the burden on the environment and on your wallet.

VARTA’s new Easy Chargers are perfect for this task. They reliably charge batteries in just 4.5 hours* and are equipped with an attractive green LED that lights up to show when the charging process is complete. The styling of the Easy Charger series focuses on simplicity, but without sacrificing the brand’s typical design elements. The V-shape inspired by the VARTA beam teams up with VARTA’s logo in raised relief to give the front a distinctive look, while a smaller version of the V-shape forms a pattern on the sides to lend character to the device’s appearance. In addition, VARTA’s Easy Chargers are equipped with the well-known Advanced Safety Technology. This includes practical and important functions such as the Minus Delta U switch-off, which automatically switches off the charger when a battery is fully charge. Furthermore, built-in protection against short circuits assures that these chargers automatically check whether a defective battery or an alkaline battery has been inserted: if this is the detected, then the chargers do not charge the battery.

* Charging time is based on two AA batteries with 1,600 mAh capacity

VARTA’s Easy Charger is available in different versions suitable for every energy requirement. The Mini Charger, which can recharge two AA or AAA batteries, is perfect for vacations. Thanks to its slim dimensions, it fits into even the smallest luggage, so the toys of the smallest members of the family can be supplied with energy even on vacation. The Plug Charger is perfect for home use. It can charge two or four AA or AAA rechargeable batteries, thus assuring that game console controllers are perfectly prepared for the next round. Both the Mini Charger and the Plug Charger plug directly into a wall socket.

The Universal Charger is suitable for all battery sizes. It can charge two or four AA, AAA, C or D batteries, or one 9V block. The scope of delivery includes a USB Type C cable, with which the Universal Charger can be easily connected to any power source such as a socket, laptop or power bank.

The Multi Charger is a real all-rounder. It can hold two, four, six or even eight AA or AAA batteries. It too is connected to the mains power via the included USB Type C cable.


The four new Easy Chargers in proven VARTA quality are now available in stores.

The MSRP is €9.99 for the Mini Charger without batteries and €11.99 for the Mini Charger with two AA or two AAA batteries. The Plug Charger including four AA batteries is available for €21.99. The Universal Charger and Multi Charger are available for €24.99 each (RRP).
