    Default Is there any battery tester for NiMh?

    i am wondering is there any battery tester for NiMh battery? like for 2500mah or 2000mah... cos sometimes i charged the batteries but never use, but not sure if the batteries have discharged or full, den if 2500 have discharged to 1800 or lower, does it still show full energy, or will a battery tester still know the diff is a 2500 and show accurately the amount of power left?

    Use a 10 buck Digital Multimeter and measure the voltage across the battery terminals ...

    NiMH discharge at 1~3% per day when not being used from memory.

    another problem here... now most of my stuff uses 6AA batteries, is there any holder that take 6 batteries so that its easier to differentiate. also, is there a charger that charge 6 at 1 go?

    May be you can check it out at those RC hobby shops (Radio-control). I believe they do sell battery testers.

    You may want to check if Eastgear brings the following Maha charger in. I remember seeing the image on their website.

    Hi ... something very cheap... go to Daiso at IMM 3rd level. A battery meter for $2.00.. It show you 3 setting... good/weak/gone! Good for quick check. For NiMH, if it is at weak reading, you need to charge it!

    Simple and cheap!
