Information Article About C Size Battery Chargers
MEGAbatteries.com is pleased to provide this “text tutorial”, as we like to call it, about C size rechargeable battery, battery chargers.
If you use C size rechargeable batteries (in NiCD – Nickel Cadmium chemistry or NiMH – Nickel Metal Hydride chemistry), you will of course, and needless to say, need to charge them when they become drained, in order to “Wake them up again” and get the full amount of life cycles/performance they were manufactured to give you.
If you are completely new to the concept of battery chargers, please read on. Let us explain the fundamentals to you. At MEGAbatteries.com, we not only sell batteries and chargers, we aim each day to ensure we provide accurate battery and charger information to all who visit our site or call or write to inquire.
NON-rechargeable batteries, such as Alkaline batteries and Lithium batteries, offer one life cycle. It could be a very long life cycle but it is still only one life cycle. However long it takes you to use up the power in the battery, will be the life cycle of that cell. If you use it continually in device that runs all day long, it will die sooner. If you use it once a year for 10 minutes, it will take you longer on the calendar to use up. That’s fair. That’s simple. That’s logical. Non rechargeable batteries, also called single-use, throw-away and disposable, all, only have 1 full charge in them, and once used, need to be replaced with separate batteries.
The reason people often choose to buy and use rechargeable batteries is because once these batteries “die”, they can be recharged and re-used again and again and recharged again and again. They offer many, many life cycles, and it through the use of a BATTERY CHARGER, that they are replenished with power.
C size rechargeable batteries are widely used in many, many consumer applications today. Not only that, they are widely purchased by government and industry as well.
Battery chargers are a technology all their own. There are different types of charging processes. By processes, we mean the WAY the charging takes place.
The 2 main types of charging operation types we cover here, are Timer-Control charging and Smart Charging. Smart Chargers are also known as Intelligent Chargers.
For your information, we describe in broad terms, the fundamentals of these two charging types.
Timer Control chargers operate on a timer. This means that as the unit is manufactured, it is done so with a timer built into it (kind of like a clock, if you will), and made to shut the unit off automatically, when the timer has lapsed down. In this type of charger, any battery within it, receive the same amount of charge for the same duration as each other. No battery receives any additional charge, beyond any other. The unit stops delivering charge at the pre-set amount of time it was built to charge for.
These units are less expensive than the intelligent chargers we’ll discuss below, and they are less expensive for this reason, but still, they charge batteries and do what a battery charger is intended to do. Another term used to describe a timer-control charger is called “Standard” charger.
They are simple and unsophisticated. They are basic in function.
Smart Chargers on the other hand, operate in what must be described as intelligently. They can actually evaluate and detect the amount of power/energy left in the battery it is charging and only deliver the missing amount. In other words, they only replenish whatever power is missing from that cell. Furthermore, they can do this evaluation and detection with EACH battery in it at one time. If you place 10 batteries into a smart charger, it will evaluate all 10 batteries and charge each one with the appropriate amount of charge that each one independently needs. For that technology, Smart/Intelligent Chargers cost more than Timer-Control chargers.
