I have a new foxpro fire storm, and just bought a 12 v 600mah charger that plugs into the foxpro, will the green light that is on the foxpro go off when the batterys are fully charged?
Thanks Dirt napper

I have always liked a "stand along" charger over the one's that are direct plug in. I can't say anything about the Foxpro charger, for mine didn't come with one.

It's really hard to say if the green light will go off, but if in doubt, then you might want to look into getting a "battery tester". You could have one battery in the group that may not be getting a full charge and that might have an effect on whether the green light will go off.

Why couldn't I hook the two batteries together for 14.4v ?

I could swap out the plug for a tamiya style, it'd be easy I just wanna make sure first.


dumb question? I already have all this stuff just wondering if I could use it for this application.

the caller uses 10AA batteries, alkaline 10x1.5 = 15v
it preferes nimh due to the high load so 10x1.2 = 12v

seems the caller would handle anything from 12v to 15v?

the batteries have velcro, so it'd be too easy to velcro them to the base on the cs24b

??

It will give you the actual mAh rating of the battery after charging - which this is something none of the other chargers will do that I know of.
So after 2 yrs on a set of 8 batteries, that started out @2700mAh, they are now down to 2300mAh + or -.


Yes I've seen them. If they would charge 8 batteries at one time I'd get one of those. They should do the job well. At least you will know what the battery is doing though out it's life.

Humm, ever think of getting two of them? I did and now I can charge 8 batteries at a time - problem solved.

There is a "break in" mode on these and using that mode on "new" batteries will really help in the longevity of the battery.

I just bought one of those chargers from All Battery, had it for 3 days now. Seems to be a good charger for the money. It provides information as to the status of each battery. I've already found 2 bad AAA batteries with it that weren't taking a charge. My other charger was showing them to be charging. I just got 10 of the white and blue 2500ahm Tenergy AA's today for my Hellfire, they're charging right now.

I don't use any battery with the Tenergy name, they are not my "cup of tea" as one would say.

If I want a good AA or AAA NiMh battery, then I go with Sanyo XX (LSD) or Powerx. Same when using the 18650 Lithium battery's for the L.E.D. flashlights, no Tenergy for these lights either, I like the battery's that have the cells that are made in Japan and not China.

There's something to be said for this. Most of the reviews I've seen of people posting test results for Chinese vs. Japanese made cells are that the Chinese made tend to be across the board in terms of rated capacity. The Japanese made cells tend to be much more consistent with each other. This holds true not just with different brands, but within the same brands.

Like anything else, you aren't going to get higher quality by paying less.
