F.A.Qs. about batteries uses

¡Hablamos Español! |

• How are rechargeable batteries rated?

There are two ratings on every battery:  volts and amp-hour (AH).  The AH rating may also be given as milliamp-hours (mAH), which are one-thousandth of an amp-hour (for example, a 1AH battery us 1000mAH).  The voltage of the new battery should always match the voltage of your original.  A battery having higher amp-hour ratings that the original battery found in your device will not cause any incompatibilities, just is indicative of a longer run-time (high capacity) .

• What is the voltage of a rechargeable battery?

Ni-MH and Ni-Cd batteries have the same nominal voltage of 1.2V per cell.
Lithium ion batteries provide a voltage of 3.6 - 3.7V

• Are non-rechargeable batteries fully replaceable by rechargeable batteries even the fact they are 1.2 volts (Ni-Cd and Ni-MH)?

Yes. Alkaline batteries are rated at a nominal voltage of 1.5 volts. Nevertheless, as they begin discharging, their voltage continuously drops. Over the course of discharge, the average voltage of alkaline batteries is in fact about 1.2 volts, as Ni-Cd or NiMH batteries voltage. The difference is that an alkaline battery starts at 1.5 volts and gradually drops to less than 1.0 volt, while Ni-Cd and NiMH batteries stay at about 1.2 volts for most of their life.

• How do I maximize the life of my rechargeable batteries?

There are some tips that will help you get maximum performance from your batteries:
Maintain a good connection between the battery and the device. We suggest you to clean dirty battery contacts with a cotton swab and alcohol.
Do not leave the battery inactive for a long time. Use the battery at least once every two or three weeks.
Rechargeable batteries self-discharge a little each day even if you don t use them, so if you know you won t use the battery for a long time remember to recharge it before use Regarding the battery storage, keep it in a dry and cool place away from heat and metal objects.
Do not mix batteries of different types (e.g. Ni-MH, Ni-Cd, alkaline, etc.) and capacities (e.g. 1500mAh and 2300mAh) in the electronic device.
Do not overcharge or overdischarge batteries. Both overcharging and over discharging the batteries will result in poor battery performance.
Also remember that is very important to not incinerate or disassemble batteries

• Is possible to charge any kind of battery?

The chargers are prepared to charge rechargeable batteries. Don t try to charge non-rechargeable ones.

• Should I keep batteries in the refrigerator when I don't use them?

Refrigerating your batteries will not make them last longer. Batteries should be stored at room temperature in a dry place.

• What happens if a short circuit occurs ?

In first place, is very important to avoid short circuits. It takes place when the positive and negative terminals of a cell are bridged by a conducting material such a metal object.
If a short circuits takes place, the battery temperature will rise, causing internal gas pressure to build up and eventually resulting in battery leakage.
To avoid short circuits, do not carry charged or fresh batteries in the same pocket or purse with coins, hair pins, keys, paper clips or any other metal object.

• My rechargeable batteries get warm during charging. It s something wrong?

There s nothing to worry about. It is normal for batteries to get warm during charging.
