Just received 4 x Powerizer 5000mah C-cells and a Powerizer charger from Batteryspace.
The batteries came at 1.25v which is good and well, since the batts are supposed to be 1.2v resting voltage. I thought 1.25 was 'fresh out of the charger' kind of voltage.
I used the batts for a little while in my flashlight then decided to charge them up full again to see how high it could go. The Powerizer charger has 4 slots to charge the batteries but it can only charge in pairs. So meaning 2 or 4 batteries can be charged together.
The first pair stopped at 1.37v (green light came on) and the other pair kept going on for another 1 hour +! Afraid something was wrong, I stopped the charging then. The batts measured 1.4v.
I'm wondering why the 'inconsistency' and also is there something wrong with NiMh's charging so far past 1.2v? Can they actually reach 1.5v?
Hope nothing is wrong with one bank of the powerizer charger.
