• How are rechargeable batteries
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
Ni-MH and Ni-Cd batteries have
the same nominal voltage of 1.2V per cell.
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)?
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
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.
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
Also remember that is very important to
not incinerate or disassemble batteries
• Is possible to charge any kind of
The chargers are prepared to charge rechargeable
batteries. Don t try to charge non-rechargeable
• 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
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
• 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.
