Question about Black & Decker String Trimmer Cordless 12" 18V
Battery companies don't want anyone to know this but if you run the terminals over a magnet, the memory will harmlessly be erased. However, a battery may overcharge so keep an eye on it will recharging the next time.

The so called memory effect only effects NiCads,
The older B&D trimmers use a Gel Cell battery (they have a recycle symbol with Pb on them, Pb is the chemical sign for lead)
If you run a Gel Cell down all the way, you will quickly DESTROY it.
Gel Cells should only be run down until you notice it slowing down, and then recharged ASAP. These units should be kept on charge whenever they aren't being used, or recharged at least once a month, whether they are used or not. If they aren't on charge all the time, they should be charged before using.
If this doesn't fix it, you've already ruined the battery, go get a new one.

Most batteries have a memory. So, if you don't let it completly die bofore you recharge it, the life of the battery will shorten to the charge you give it
