In a method for charging a rechargeable battery an ultra-fast charging of in particular NiMH-batteries is achieved by controlling the charging current and the charging voltage, respectively, such that the temperature of the battery is constant. Due to the constant temperature control it is avoided that unnecessary electrical energy is waisted for heating the battery. The end of charging is preferably determined by detecting a predetermined change of the charging efficiency.
