Does anyone know if the latest version 35 still has the "resetting" problems that the forum, http://candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?t=91384, talks about?

I want to buy a good quality, not too expensive, charger and it seems like this one will work good.

Default Newbie Question LaCross BC900 Charger

I just purchased a LaCross 900 charger and also bought some light green rechargeable AA batteries on ebay. I did a "refresh mode" on the lowest default setting of 100 - 200. When the batteries register "Full" I run through the various displays and the aMh reads only 650 or so. The batteries are supposed to be 2700 aMh. They came from Hong Kong and were admitedly inexpensive. Did I just get what I paid for or am I reading the charger incorrectly. Any experience would be very helpful. Thanks.

Default BC-900 Restored Battery Capacity

Just got the BC-900 a week ago and used it on my stock of NiMH batteries.

Found out some that had lost a substantial amount of their capacity (30% to 50%). Some I was able to get back to almost 100% capacity using the BC-900's Refresh function.

But I also found out that I had some that simply could no longer be restored to full capacity.

Before the BC-900, I was using another supposedly good charger that would charge in 1-2 hours. At the same time, I would always use my batteries until the camera said "Change Batteries". Apparently, these were not enough to maintain the condition of batteries.

So from now on, its the BC-900.

Try few times to "Refresh" them again & again...it's possible that after trying many times will be OK....again?.

Good Luck,

Peace,

Alex 007,

I will try your suggestion. Specially on a set of Ansmann NiMH that are supposed to be excellent but did not refresh the first time to full capacity.

Keeping my fingers crossed.
