Hy.
I bought myself 2 AA NiMH 2650 mAh Duracell batteries.
is there a problem if i recharge them with my old recharger or should i buy another recharger?

info about recharger http://www.hlpack.com/ProductsView.asp?id=104

Is better using a Duracell recharger or my old one could do the job easily?
Could the recharger damage the batteries or something like this ? (i doubt it but i need an answer from someone who really knows)
If there is no problem i intend on using the recharger for charging the batteries from now and on.
Hope to hear from you soon.


Thanks!

i have lie 3 sets of duracell chargeable batteries. 1 set is 1700 and the other 2 are 2650. i also have some sony ones that are 2700 these came w/their own charger. as for the duracel's i have that black bulky charger that also has a usb plug in it.

no problems even charging the sony's in the duracel charger....just that after a car show or heavy use of my flash, it takes like 3 or 4 + hrs to charge dead batteries.

lol.

Since the specs on the charger claim it is both current and voltage controlled, it should be fine. It may just take a bit longer to charege.

I ditched my Duracell rechargeables. I had the the green ones and the 15 minute charger. They just weren't reliable and woulnd'nt last very long.
