how? when? charge my NIMH batteries
Hi, my questions concerns when, and how best, to charge ni-mh batteries via choice of options available to me now.
Here's what I have:
Four 1,2v 2000 mAh Duracell NI-MH batteries
(including CEF14nc charger)
as per this pic:
Also, I have:
A very old "Universal Ni-Cd Charger" (made in China)
...which is most similar to this:
I have been using the batteries inside a mini flashlite, and inside a mini-lantern which holds Three AAs. Though I've seldom been using the flashlite & lantern, occasionally, i've been removing 2 batteries at a time from the lantern for use in my digital camera. But i've never kept track of WHICH 2 batteries i've been transferring to my camera at any given time.
That explains why the 4 batteries have different charges.
As follows: The battery readings on multimeter are:
(1) Which of my chargers would be safest to recharge the NIMHs on?
(2) Can I safely place all of them at once inside [whichever-charger] even though they're different charges?
(3) for how long a duration is safe to charge them?
btw, I spent hours trying to find the answers to these Qs on search engine, Ehow and Youtube. No dice.
