This is for a Makita 6932FD impact driver. It runs off a 14.4V NiMH battery of 2.6Ah. I ordered sub-C cells (with solder tabs, don't worry :P) that are 4.2Ah.
I was reading about DIY NiMH chargers just out of curiosity. The author used a PIC to monitor charge termination based on 3 conditions:
So that got me thinking, I believe the highest capacity of OEM battery was ~3Ah. So will the charger be able to fully charge it? Or will it take too long, and get cut off? In which case, I'd have to
- Use it as is
- Unplug then plug in the charger again to "reset" the count
- Get a different charger, probably one for RC batteries as this is the target audience of the cells I bought
