    Is it bad for the recharger batteries if I off the power b4 they r fully charge and den continue to charge them again ( was changing power point ) ... I'm using the GP 16 hr charger ... I realised dat after switching the power off and charger it again ... I haveta start all over again and wait for another 16 hrs for the indicator to turn green ( indicating a full charge )

    btw, 4 Rayavoc 1600mAH batteries cost $17.90 in Carrefour. They were rated better than the GP 1800mAH according to www.imaging-review.com if I'm not wrong.

    It's bad because your charger is timer-based. Everytime, you switch off the power, it will charge for 16 hours before turning green. The green color just means 16 hours, it doesn't mean anything about the charge status of the batteries.

    An intelligent charger on the other hand would not have this problem. The built-in circuit will detect the level of charge and once full, charging will either stop or go to a trickle mode.

    Hmm ... always tot my GP charger was intelligent ... apparently it was printed there " Intelligent Safety Time " ... I convienently overlooked the word timer

    Availablity of power points is really a daunting issue for me unfortunately ... the instructions stated I shld not use extension cords ... guess it's time to get one of those super duper chargers den huh~
