Over on my "The Digital Camera Fan" weblog, C.C. asked these questions:
Q: I bought Energizer charger yesterday which includes 2pcs of 2000mAh battery. It does not say 'trickle charging'. So does it mean its no use to store the battery in the charger after charging while not in use for my camera?
A: Here's how to tell: after the batteries are fully charged, leave them in the charger for a day, and then feel them. If they feel warm, they are being trickle-charged; if cold, then not.
Q: The manual says 15 hours are needed to charge 2000mAh AA NiMH batteries. so does that mean i have to recharge it another 15 hours when batteries are drained after usage?
A: Yes. Next time, you may want to look for a fast charger, one that recharges in an hour or less. However, these chargers cost quit a bit more than the "overnight" chargers.
Q: Is it safe to store AA batteries in the charger while not in use?
