Hi Boshi!

Yes only leave the charger plugged to your home mains for at least 30% more time...so the higher capacity batteries will be 100% charged.

Good Luck!

alex, do you think i'd better remove the batteries after the led colour turns to green and then put them into the charger again in order to be charged for the 30% of the total charge time? or should ikeep the batteries in the chargerafter the green timer led without removing them?

Dear Boshi!

Yes..., when your red light turns to green, wait a least 1/2 hour..as 90% of the chargers charge when goes green 90 %... of the battery capacity half hour more wil be 100%...BUT...BUT...your charge was specified for less powerful batteries...take away the batteries AFTER such 1/2 hour more charge...WAIT...WAIT...till are completely COOL, and charge them again for another 30% more time...take note...that such 30% more WILL NOT bring the RED light switched to GREEN one...for so discharge all your batteries fully, charge them as normally in your received/acquired charge till display green...allow another 1/2 hour...write exactly the TOTAL time that took with the 1/2 hour, to charge (Per example 14.5 hours...add 30% more after that the batteries are TOTALLY COOL, & insert again the batteries on your charger for another 30% more...make you the exactly calculation how more is 30%).

I really hope that you comprehend my advise...post me the results please Boshi!

Thank you,

ALEX 007:|

hi again, alex!

i totally got you and practised your instructions. dosens of thanks again.as itake approximately700 photos with my 2500mAh batteries,i'm ready to be so glad.

something else that might interest you: uniross charger's manual says that its current interval is 285-320mA for AA batteries. besides, it's timer modefor 2000-2300mAh batteriesis set to 9 hours. theoretically, at worst, 285mA x 9hours gives 2565mAh. doesn't it seem weird?

If by weird you mean that your calculation indicates more energy in than the charger specifications say, that's because there are losses (in the form of heat) during charging. In other words, you don't get the same mAh out that you put in because it is not 100% efficient (nothing is).

right, i didn't take the <100% efficiency rate into account. thanks.

put up with this another sickening question: do electric cut-offs during charginghave negative effectsonbattery capacityand battery life?
