Yes, the amperage your charging at determines charging time. The higher the amperage, the faster it charges. Your battery is rated in mAh or milliamp hours. One Ah means the electric charge transferred by a steady current of one ampere for one hour. A mAh would be 1/1000th of an amp for one hour. If your battery is a 1500mAh battery it means 1.5 amps for one hour. This charge current should not exceed the rating of the battery. It would cause possible excessive heating and possible a fire or explosion, especially on newer more volatile batteries like lithium polymer batteries. The life of the battery charge when fully charged will be similar no matter how you charged it, but slower, lower amperage charges will maintain your battery better than quicker, higher amperage charges and help extend it's life to its potential.

I think it's the amount of Amper... Some laptot offer only 100mA on USB (slow Charge) instead Desktop PC can offer 500mA (fast Charge). The life time of the battery is the same (i suppose) with the fast or with the slow Charge. the difference is in power consumption.

I just bought a nimh AA>AAA charger & batteries for my field cams, I was able to charge all 4 batt twice and now the charger blinks red and indicates bad batteries. its only two months old.

If you use a fast charger, or a power charger, that can be the cause of your trouble. I used to charge with different power chargers till I learned they push every battery over its limits. After at least 3 different power chargers and about 100 defective batteries, I now charge my batteries with normal slow chargers. Before I can go on a shoot, sometimes 8 slow chargers are charging a whole night. But since I stopped using the power chargers I never lost a battery on overcharging (actually overheating)

Turntable running slow

Hi Ken,

it is a Technics Frequency Generator Servo (Belt drive SL-23). I have four different belts and neither one of them works. Two are too slow and one is too fast and the other one is slow and fast.

I changed the belt before that I got off of an old turn table. It deteriorated.

I would appreciate any help.

So far I am also having Gateway Monitor problems and Canon Mp560 printer problems

Thank you,.

I have a e100 razor scooter.I charge my scooter overnight. Then I get on it the next morning it charges for about 10 hous. It moves fast but after about 6 seconds it will start moving really slow but it...

The charger you are using might have a default in it because it is not working you can also try another charger or let it charge for a few days. I this does not work then there is probably something wrong with your scooter.

Fast flashing green light when trying to charge

usually fast flashing charge is faulty battery its trying to get volts in to the battery. you see the battery has a charging board on the battery not in the camera the camera sends the volts to the battery and the battery tells the camera its voltage, and when at the right volts stops charging. but these batteries can only be charged to around 10000hrs depending on the type of battery. you see when you get a new battery you need to charge it before use, now this can be 6hrs to 12hrs for fist time use if you interrupted the charge or have a power cut while it charges it can damage the charging chip in the battery. if this does the flashing light on other batteries then the signal is not being read by the camera and the camera can be faulty on the charging circuit, usually (sometimes) removing the battery for a few hours can fix this but it will rest the camera. hope this helps you.

Can i use another 4a 250v fuse for my cerwin vega LS12 if its not a (slow blow) ,and what would be the outcome

Fuses have different blow characteristics. Such to protect components differently. An extremely fast fuse would protect sensitive components like tweeters and slower fuse will allow transcients to pass and blow on long time fault. If you put a slow blow in place of fast blow, it won't blow as quickly, but it could allow the protected device to be damaged. In reverse, you put a fast blow in place of slow blow, it will blow at normal transcients and be a nuscience to always replace.
You can cross to a fuse of different manufacturer. The reliable manufacturers will have detailed datasheet and subsitute or similar fuse to the fuse you are looking for.

What is the cooking time for "slow" and "fast"

The cooking time depends on what your cooking. In general there is a 3 to 4 hour difference between slow and fast. If your cooking poultry make sure to check the meat with a thermometer until you get the hang of it.

My glowbouy flashes green and red...what does this mean

According to the owners manual for these swimming pool lights, this is what each colored indicator means. Hope this helps.


Solid green
The battery pack is fully charged.
Slow flashing green
The battery pack is almost fully charged.
Slow flashing yellow
The battery pack is half charged.
Medium flashing yellow
The battery pack is less than half charged.
Fast flashing yellow
The battery pack has almost no charge.
Fast flashing red
A charging error has occurred and the light should be unplugged and then plugged back in. If the Fast Flashing Red persists after several attempts, the battery condition is questionable.



Also in the trouble shooting guide, it mentions this:


Problem: Red Indicator Light Is Flashing While Charging

Solution:
A red flashing indicator light when charging indicates a selftest
error condition. Unplug the product and plug it in again.
Try this several times; if the indicator light continues to flash
red, unplug the GlowBuoy and take it to an authorized service
depot.
