My understanding is 5.7volts is what your supposed to be charging 4 AA rechargeables ,wired in series, with... Due to loss of current through connectors and wires.. But i cant remember exactly what the voltage needed after the loss is? anyway.. hope that helps you a little
A NiCad charger has different sensor values than NiMh. I would find a charger that has a switch to select either, or specifically a Nickel Metal Hydride battery charger to prevent damaging and shortening the life of your batteries.
It actually depends on what you're using it for. For example, a camera will drain more energy than a remote control. Approximatley 6 months to a year depending on usage. If you, say, listen to a sports radio an hour a day every day, it'll probably last 3 months. If you have a tv remote and use it ev…ery day, probably a year. The main difference between Energizer and generic is the self discharge rate. The self discharge rate is how much power a battery cell loses even if its not in use. The avergae self discharge rate is between 8 and 20 percent of totally power over a year period. Energizer is closer to 8 while generic is closer to 20. (MORE)
Why won't a set of NiMH AA batteries work in something that a set of AA alkaline batteries work in just fine it is not electronic?
NiMH batteries must be charged first. The charge won't last as long as an alkaline battery but they can be recharged 100's of times. They have a slightly lower voltage (1.2 instead of 1.5) and should work fine in many devices. For an electronic device, you may see a low battery indicator because of …the lower voltage. (MORE)
No set answer to that, it depends on the power consumption of what they're connected to.
Some will, but it is not recommended because it can damage the batteries or the charger. Invest in a NiCd charger or better yet get some NiMh batteries. NiMh batteries are better than NiCd in every way.
If the batteries are all the same size, I would use NiMH over NiCad. If I remember correctly, NiCad is an old rechargeable technology, didn't have such a long run time, and had a bad memory effect. The NiMH is better in both ways.
Depending on how much you use the item that holds the AA battery . It actually depends on what you're using it for. For example, a camera will drain more energy than a remote control.

yes. NiMH batteries and chargers are easier to come by though. Alot of times, the mAh will be higher in the NiMH batteries as well...so there is really no point to using NiCD unless you'd prefer it.
1.5 volts if you have an alkaline battery. 1.2 volts for most rechargeables (Li, NiMH, NiCd)
I doubt you'd find one ! NiMH batteries charge to 7.2 volts NOT 9 volts ! Trying to charge one to 10 volts is overcharging by almost 50% ! This will certainly shorten the life of the battery and COULD result in overheating and/or explosion !
With the same load current the AA will last longer that the AAA. This is due to the physical size of the cells. A C cell will last longer that a AA and a D cell will last longer that a C cell. In dry cells as the cells get larger the amp/hours increase.
UM 3 is a battery size used in Japan, corresponding to the AA of the more common standard.
However long the charger takes. I would reckon a good time to be approx 2-3 hours.
We know that AA batteries (or any others) lose charge because energy is taken out of them with use. The chemical reactions that generate the voltage occur, and this "uses up" the energy in the cell. This is the long and short of why batteries lose charge, and you can see it if you think it through..… We can also see a situation where a cell loses charge when stored. No materials are perfect insulators. And lengthy storage, or storage under improper or poor circumstances will set up conditions under which leakage current could discharge a cell. Plain and simple.

3 hours well it depends on how much you use it but it usally last about 20 - 22 hours :) hope that helped (: There is no definite answer. The batteries could have been used before, or not charged to full capacity. The flashlight may be of a different voltage to another one, so there is no defini…te answer. (MORE)
\nIt is always better to use a charger designed to charge a particular battery type. Using a NiCad charger for NiMh batteries or vice versa can cause damage to the charger or batteries, especially if the charger is designed to charge the batteries in under two hours. The worst case is a fire risk.… \n. \nSome charger and battery combinations will work perfectly well together but it is safe to assume that the charger will only be suitable for the battery types stated on it.

both AA and AA last the same time because they are the same type of batteries.
No set answer to that. It depends on charger output and batterycapacity. Usually a few hours.
If you mean bounce as like a rubber ball bounces, the answer is no.An AA battery will behave exactly the same if dropped regardless ifit's fully charged or completely empty.
An AA battery has 4.0 mA. Battery capacity is measured in mAh (milliamp hours), that's how much electricity can be delivered for how long (depending on consumption). The best AA NIMH (nickel-metal hydride) rechargeable batteries rate at around 2100 mAh - at 1.2volts. And regular (off the shelf) a…lkalines anywhere from 1500 - 3000 mAh at 1.5 to 1.7 volts. There are some industrial/military batteries that have a 'little bit' better performance and are sealed better - so that they wont leak as easily when dead and can take rough treatment. While the battery's capacity (the mAh figure discussed above) affects the maximum current which can be drawn from a battery, other factors play an important role in limiting the current. A perfect battery could delivery an almost infinite amount of current if the duration of that demand is sufficiently short. In a thought experiment, it is perfectly possible to burn through a fairly thick wire by shortening one of these batteries. (Do not try this at home. The battery might explode of catch fire, and the wire can spark, will get very hot, and metal might evaporate which could severely harm you.) However, no battery is perfect. The chemical and physical assembly inside the battery dictates how quickly the stored energy can be made available as an electric current, and other aspects define an "internal resistor" which limits the maximum current. Therefore, two or more batteries of the same nominal capacity but different design will deliver a different peak current. (MORE)
If its a NiMH battery then yes. The Energizer charger will charge ANY brand of NiMH rechargeable batteries.
Unless you want to see batteries burst, you should never charge normal alkaline batteries with any charger. Brand names don't matter much in this sense either. Only charge batteries that have the word "Rechargeable" or "NiMH" on them. Though there are some alkaline batteries that are rechargeable,… a regular battery faces the risk of explosion or severe damage when charged. (MORE)
No set answer to that, it depends on the power consumption ofwhatever they're connected to.
Although Wal-Mart tends to sell really cheap batteries under a good name (Rayovac) at about 97/98 cents(plus tax), most AA batteries cost anywhere from $4 up to about $16 dollars depending on how many batteries are in the pack and depending on brand.
That's going to depend on how often, and for how long, the flashlight is turned on.
No set answer to that. it depends on the capacity of the batteryand the power consumption of what it's connected to.

AAA batteries are rated at 1.5V as are AA-C-D batteries. Once down to 1.3V or lower they are not much use,
It's the other way around, the battery powers theflashlight. . There's no set answer to that. It depends on the capacity of thebattery and the power consumption of the flaslight.
no, not even taking 1 out while the other is in, because once the one is out the power is cut off.
You can recharge a AA battery if it is a rechargeable battery like the 12 volt battery in your vehicle. You can buy a rechargeable AA battery or one that is not rechargeable they just cost more money.
No set answer to that. It depends on the battery capacity and thepower consumption of the flashlight.
It actually depends on your usage as the more the battery is used , the quicker it discharges

No, a double "a" battery is a 1.5V battery. No, a double "a" battery is a 1.5V battery.
I will say no. I did install regular alkaline batteries and they died very soon and started to leak.
you should only charge a 7.2v NiMH battery pack with its factory charger if you dont it it can melt, cause a fire, or explode
I need a um3 AA battery where can I buy one or what can I use toreplace it?
The time it takes for AA rechargeable betteries to charge depends on the charger used. The more mAH (milliamps hour) in a battery, the longer it takes to charge.

According to Energizer, they claim that their rechargeable AA batteries will hold their charge for up to 1 year. How long a battery lasts is also dependant on how much it is used.
One can purchase an AA battery charger from a variety of different sources. These include your local electronics store, a department store, or even a large supermarket such as Walmart.
Walmart and Target both sell Duracell AA batteries in store and online. They can also be purchased in most drug stores or grocery stores or from Amazon.
One may buy rechargeable AA batteries at any general mass retailer or home improvement store. Also, electronics stores such as Future shop will always have these in stock.
Generally speaking, all batteries will leak over time. However, certain factors can speed up the process. Heat is the biggest culprit. Storing your flashlights under the seat of your car, or in direct sunlight will cause the batteries to leak. The reason they leak is because they are filled with a c…hemical paste of which the liquid portion is composed of a base called Potassium Hydroxide. When the batteries get hot, the paste inside expands, and forces chemicals out of the seals in the bottom and top of the battery. When the Potassium Hydroxide makes contact with the spring and terminal in your flashlight, it produces a blue-green powder as it corrodes the terminals away. Cleaning up this powder is easy. The best method I have found is Vinegar. Since the powder is a base, using a little Vinegar (Acetic Acid) will neutralize it quickly and make cleanup a lot simpler. The best way to avoid future leaks is to keep the flashlight in a relatively cool area. Also, avoid really cheap no-name batteries. You don't have to pay for the high-dollar Energizers or anything like that, but avoid things like "Super Cell" or "Power Max", obvious knock-offs that are half the price of the other no-name batteries. Also, don't mix battery types. There are Standard batteries, and Alkaline batteries. If you mix standard with alkaline, two things can happen. The alkaline batteries are slightly more powerful, and will cause the regular batteries to heat up more in operation, causing them to leak faster. Also, the regular batteries will drag down the alkalines, causing them to die faster. Regardless of the brand you buy, as I said above, all batteries will leak eventually, so if you don't use the flashlight for extended periods of 3 months or more, remove the batteries, or change them out every couple months.

Yes, it can be done, if you put 4 (6v) or 8 (12v) batteries in series or use a dropping resistor to obtain the correct voltage. By using an automobile battery charger 6v to 12volt (start), normal alkaline AA-AAA, C, etc., can be recharged by touching the positive (red) and negative (black) jumper ca…bles to the same pos+/neg- ends on a bank of AA or AAA alkaline non-rechargeable" batteries. WARNING! Some batteries may explode if not used properly. If cables are continuously touching the batteries for too long, it could cause it to pop, snap, or heck, even explode, splattering battery chemicals about, scaring the person. Better batteries don't explode as often as the less expensive ones. (MORE)
You can replace a Panasonic NiMH (Nickel-Metal Hydride) batterywith a similar Duracell NiMH battery of the same size and with thesame voltage and power output.
