Battery chargers are a must have, as they can restore energy to a battery. They will take currents from an electrical outlet, and use them to recharge your battery. This will allow you to use your battery for your application. You must choose the right type of charger, as the wrong one could cause damage to your battery.
Charger SpeedsThere are a number of speeds in which chargers will function. These include: Slow Charger
This charger will charge at a set rate, which happens to be slow. They can be left on, because there is no indicator letting you know that your battery is fully charged. The main thing to watch with a slow charger is the temperature, as it will charge at a set rate of one tenth of the rated capacity. When the battery is completely depleted, it will take 14 to 16 hours for it to charge the battery to its full capacity.Rapid Charger
This is the most widely used charger. When the battery is all the way depleted, it will take the charger 3 to 6 hours to replenish the battery to its full capacity. Many rapid chargers have a way of regulating their temperature, which means the battery will not get too hot.Fast Charger
Fast chargers are very efficient, and have the ability to decrease charging cycles. These chargers are made to work with a variety of equipment, including military, medical communication and power tools. These types of chargers work well for NiCd and NiMH batteries, as they can charge in as little as an hour. Once the battery reaches 70 percent, the charge rate slows down.
