SOURCE: Motorola CP040 charging time

The rapid rate charger WPLN41__ will typically charge a battery in 90-120 minutes. Your battery should be depleted or nearly depleted when you place it in the charging stand. Be certain your radio is always turned off, when charging an attached battery. The NiMH battery will generally go 12-16 hours on a charge when new. If you work an eight hour shift, you might see if the radio will go 2 days on a charge. Later as the battery ages, you will need to charge it nightly. (Think of putting it in the charger as putting it to bed at night.)

Rapid charging is necessary on NiMH and Li-Ion batteries. They require a "hotter" charger, a fast rate, to completely charge the battery. It will not harm this chemistry of battery. It is safe to leave the battery on the charger overnight, or for a weekend. We would not recommend leaving the battery on the charger longer periods of time, as that will age the battery and reduce its life.

(Sidenote: Frequent rapid charging will however reduce the life of a NiCD battery.)

My Euro Pro X has been packed away for a few years in storage. When I plug it in, does it take a while before I see an indicator light for it to be charging?

If it has been in storage a long time and the battery is a Nickel Cadmium or Nickel Metal Hydride battery, it will be ruined. You will probably have to fit a new one.

Worx cordless drill battery pack wont hold a charge at all its about 3 years old

If it is a Nickel cadmium battery, it has probably developed "memory" - that means it becomes used to partial discharge and the capacity has gone down.

You can partially revive it by deep cycling a couple of times, like this:

1) run the drill till it stops (can tape the trigger on, if necessary)

2) recharge fully

Repeat steps 1 and 2 , after that the battery should hold the charge a bit better. These rechargeable batteries do wear out eventually. Lithium Ion batteries are better than the Nickel Cadmium.

I charged the battery and now I receive the following message on the camera display "for use with compatable battery only" then the camera shuts down.

Make, model?

Some camera's have a setting in the menu, to swich them between, Alkaline, NiMh (Nickel Metal Hydride) and NiCad (Nickel Cadmium) batteries.

Well i tried to take a picture and i took it and then it turned off once i took the picture

Sounds like the batteries.

Digital cameras are noteably, very demanding power suckers.
If they don't have brand new batteries, they shut off.

They requre top brand (Energizer or Duracell) batteries, and once they are used for even a short time; they will not be enough either.
(Dont' throw them out though, other less demanding things like Remote controlls will gladly use them for years)

The best bet is to use Rechargeable batteries, or have a $100/month budget for duracells.

Statistics you will need to look for in Rechargeable batteries are:

Type; Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd) or Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH)

The Metal Hydride rechargeable battery is best since it charges faster and retains it charge longer, the old fashioned Nickel Cadmium battery used to be the best, but not any longer.

Rating: 900mAh; 1800mAh; 2200mAh; others not mentioned.

Unimportant note: The mAh means Milli Amphere Hours, which means how much power the battery cell will hold when fully charged. It is measured in Ampheres (Amps) per Hour, or in this case Milliamperes (1/1000 of an amp), but that's not important to know; all rechargeable batteries are rated by this number.

The number of mAh's you want are about 1000 or more,

Generally it's the more mAh's you have the more you can take pictures. Such as 900mAh will get about 50 to 250 pictures, but 1800mAh will get you twice as much.

Last note on Rechargable batteries: Only use a LiMH charger for LiMH batteries, and use a NiCd Charger for NiCd batteries.
If a charger dosn't say what type of batteiries it charges, it's the old fashioned NiCd (Nickel Cadmium) from the 1900's when that was the only type of rechageable battery.

Good luck with your Digital Camera.

Won't charge

2 screws hold the shaver together. The second one is under the trimmer (open your trimmer).

As I am an electronics hobbyist, I am able to unsolder the 2 nicad batteries. It is a bit of a trick to pop this thing apart though, but can be done. See comments from another guy who stated it well...

The batteries are most absolutely 100% replaceable, though I do *not* recommend you try unless you are an electronics hobbyist/electrical engineer/ham radio operator/genius. This requires the ability to work with delicate electronic components, solder, and desolder.

In case you are not familiar, "planned obsolescence" is all the rage these days. The definition is quite simple. Literally, it means that major consumer electronics companies plan products to fail in a given amount of time, to increase their profits. Lovely, huh? Modern battery chemistry for consumer grade rechargeables is Nickel Metal Hydride. These batteries do *not* have a memory which affects charge cycles. The older technology is Nickel Cadmium, which is dangerous for the environment and develops a memory, impacting the amount of charge the cells can hold over time. Philips intentionally continues to use Nickel Cadmium cells instead of the better Nickel Metal Hydride. They also make it extremely difficult to replace the cells; that is, they build these brushes with "planned obselescence" in mind.

If you are extremely careful, you may try to replace your batteries. When your brush no longer chargers to your satisfaction, VERY gently pry open the handle with a flat-bladed screwdriver, after running down the battery. Once it is open, you will see two "AA" Nickel Cadmium cells soldered into place. This is when you find your ham radio operator, electronics hobbyist, electrical engineer, or genius friend. Or, if you are one of the above...

Carefully remove the existing Ni-Cad cells, and recycle them properly. Find some high capacity Sanyo Nickel Metal Hydride cells, and put them in instead. Reseal the whole deal with epoxy, and see how it turns out.

Remember, in doing this, if you mess up, you had nothing to lose. Let me add here that if your dog turns in a squirrel or your ear turns to pudding in attempting this, I am *not* responsible!

Resetting memory on NiCad batteries

I don't understand why this is under projection TV's myself. Maybe I missed something, but here goes the explination.

NiCad, or Nickel Cadmium batteries are really touchy with charging. Overcharging and undercharging really hurt their overall lifespan. Also, recharging with a partial charge left in the batteries can cause a decrease in life as well.

Best ways to maintain a Nickel Cadmium Cell is to follow the following instructions.

1 : Always make sure the first charge is as recommended by the manufacturer. Usually about 1.5 times as long as a normal charging cycle.

2 : Run the cells completely dead before attempting to recharge. This keeps the cells from having left over power and actually short charging.

3 : Never under or over charge these batteries. Always follow the exact instructions for the cells you're using. This will keep a high lifespan over the lifetime of the cell.

Now these batteries gain a memory in "lost charge" times. You can somewhat gain some time back by following those steps, however once they are shot; they are pretty much done. If they won't hold a charge for more than a few minutes, it's time to replace.

A good alternative however if you can change over to NiMH or Nickel Metal Hydride type batteries. These batteries have no memory and the cells will last through more charges then the elder NiCD style. These cells are much more reliable and can take a lot more abuse then NiCD.
