Charging New Batteries

Published by at 8:21 am under Tips and Ideas

As a digital camera owner you probably use lots of battery “juice”. If you are like me, you attempt to save money by investing in rechargeable batteries.

When you bring a new rechargeable battery home, it is not fully charged. Yet it sometimes is only in the charger for a short time, and the “ready” light goes on. As the recommendation is for a 12 hour charge, don’t believe that little light. A new battery sometimes can fool a charger. If this happens, you need to remove the battery from the charger and then reinsert it. The charging cycle should begin again. This may happen several times during the first battery charge. Don’t worry; it’s perfectly normal.
