Battery FAQs



Where should I store the batteries?


Replacement Battery Store recommends that you store the purchased batteries in dry places with a relatively constant temperature not too high or low. The temperature extremes affect the battery. If you haven’t used the device for which you bought the batteries for a long time, you can remove them from it.


Why is it better to remove the batteries from a device that has not been used for a while?


This way you will avoid the danger of battery oxidation and damage the appliance itself.


When should I remove the batteries from the device?


It is advisable to remove the batteries from the appliance in the following cases: when it not going to be used for a long time, when the batteries are completely drained, when the appliance is connected to a wall socket, or when the batteries are defective or oxidized. This will avoid damage to both the batteries and the unit itself.


Does the cold affect the batteries?


Cold influences the batteries by reducing their capacity. What does this mean? If your battery has a capacity of 1500mAh, at very low temperatures it may and probably will drop below 1000mAh. This will drastically reduce the time you will be able to use the unit with these batteries.



                                      



Does the heat affect the batteries?


Heat adversely affects batteries by reducing their efficiency. Therefore, it is advisable to store the purchased batteries at temperatures no higher than 68 degrees Fahrenheit.


                                                  



Is it possible to use several different types of batteries in one appliance?


No, it's not possible. It is not advisable to use different types of batteries in one unit since there is a great chance of damaging both the device itself and the batteries. Try to use the same age and battery type.



What is the "memory effect" of the battery?


This effect is typical for Ni-CD (nickel-cadmium) batteries. It occurs when the battery is not exploited properly. This way, the battery "remembers" the lower voltage in “standby” mode. In such cases, the nominal capacity can't be reached during charging and the voltage will remain the same as in standby mode. In other words, if the Ni-Cd battery has a voltage of 1.2V, it will drop to 0.8-1V at full discharge. Therefore, if you do not charge the battery for example for 1 month, then it can not be charged properly.



Is it normal for the batteries to warm up while charging?


Yes, this is normal and distinctive for the Ni-Mh (Nickel Metal Hydride) batteries. Another type of batteries that heat up charging, but to a lesser extent are Ni-Cd (Nickel-Cadmium) batteries.

Where should I dispose of batteries?


Batteries which you no longer need because they are damaged or exhausted should not be disposed of in household waste. In many areas, you can dispose of the batteries at a recycling center.
