What is the max mA battery rating that can charged by the Bc700?
Hi, what is the max mA battery rating that can charged with the Bc700? I have rechargeable batteries that are 2000, 2500, 2700 and 3000 mA. Will this charge be able to charge all of them without a problem? and if the 3000mA batteries can be charged, how long would it take at the 200/500/700 settings? Thanks for your time.

Re: What is the max mA battery rating that can charged by...
Divide the mA of the battery by the mA you want to charge it at.For example,I'll use the 3000mA battery at a 500mA charge.That would be 6 hours.However,that only actually charges it to 80%(for alkaline).It needs another 6 hours to charge the remaining 20%.If they are not alkaline let me know and I will look and see what I can find out.

Please replace with same rating/type as given on cell that is normally NI MH, Rating current rating - 600ma, 900ma, higher ma means lasts longer after charge. Brand- panasonic, sanyo, any standard brand, initially charge for 10 to 12 hours. Pl do not keep hand set always on dock, this overcharges the battery, shortening cell life.
Try the highest mA AAA cells you can find or see Maplins for the pre joined pair. You will need a steady hand and a soldering iron with a fine tip there aint much room in there. The mA wont really matter, if you get a higher rating than the originals they will just take longer to charge.
Is you battery charger producing the correct voltage? I would check that first, because that has happened to me. Other than that, battery replacement may be necessary. It is important to let them properly discharge and charge them as your manual says, as batterys will fail if not properly cared for.
Input voltage : 100-240 V, 50/60 Hz
Power consumption : max. 9 W
Motor voltage : 2.4 V
Battery : 2x NiMH AA
Battery capacity : approx. 1100 mAh
Charging indicator : 1x duoLED green / red
: charge / battery low
Charging time : approx. 8 hours
Charging current : 200/25 mA time dependent
Should work. As long as the voltage is correct the components of the charger should work. Depending on the type of "end of charge", i.e., time, voltage drop, temperature, it may take longer to charge with lower power ratings.
Hello mironas3, A general rule of thumb when dealing with rechargeable battery packs is to take the capacity of the battery divided by the charge rating of the charger and then add an additional 10%. Offhand I am not sure what the voltage / capacity or voltage / charge rating of the battery and charger are but you can determine that by examine the labels on both items. Let’s say (for example) that your battery is listed as 7.2 volts and 1,000 mAH and your charger is rated as 9 volts and 100 mA. (These are just theoretical examples. Substitute the numbers from your own items.) You would divide 1,000 mAH by 100 mA to equal 10 hours. Then add 10%. So you expect a full charge to take around 11 hours time. Of course, actual charge time will vary depending on how discharged the batteries are when you start charging them. Since the charger that Motorola provided doesn't have a charge indicator determining when the batteries are done charging is a matter of making an educated guess. If you touch the batteries while they are charging and they feel warm to the touch, that's a pretty good indication that they are done or nearly done charging as once the batteries are topped off excess power will turn into heat. (Note that batteries in a charger should never be HOT. If they are ever more then just slightly warm, something is wrong with the battery or the charger or both.) Also, just a word of warning here: remember to always use the correct manufacturer recommended charger. Substituting a charger with twice the charge rate to charge the batteries in half the time is not a good idea. Rechargeable batteries are meant to be charged slowly. Fast chargers exist but they typically have built-in circuitry that pulses the charge rate to prevent the batteries from overheating. Using the wrong charger can result in damage to your battery or radio or worse could possibly even lead to a fire.
The flashing battery light is an indication that the system is attempting to charge the battery. The orange light indicates a problem charging one of the battery cells. This usually means that the battery either needs to be recalibrated or replaced. To recalibrate the battery just use the system until the battery is dead, then recharge and repeat the process twice, after which time the battery should be recalibrated. If this doesn’t fix the flashing orange light then the battery may need to be replaced.
