New batteries for a battery drill.
« on: August 26, 2021, 11:46 »
Hello everybody,   
just received 2 new NiMh batteries for my drill.  Popped one on charge and shortly after (about 30 minutes) the light changed from red to green, question is I thought the batteries took quite a while on initial charge.

Any knowledeable persons out there like to ease my quandary?  :unsure:

Cheers,   Tony.

Li-ion batteries are normally supplied part-charged, sounds like your NiMh batteries were too.

NiMh batteries used to have a 'memory' and needed more care with the discharge/charge cycle, but the latest ones should be OK in that respect (the instructions should make that clear...  :unsure:)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!
