Charging a Ni-Cd battery

Post by ModderMan » Sat Sep 08, 2012 8:43 pm

I have a 3.6v 150ma Ni-Cd battery I got from some toy, it has a charger that takes 4 AA and outputs 4v, will this safely charge the battery?

What kind of battery (in shape and design) is it exactly? If the charger accepts AA batteries you'll have to make some other way to draw the power from the charger. Ni-CD batteries shouldn't require any protection for charging, but 4v sounds a little low. I would think that a 3.6v battery should charge up to about 4.2v and in to achieve that 4.5v of charging power would be good. But I might be wrong, I don't have much experience with Ni-CD batteries. It might not go very high.

Charging a Ni Cd battery

New to all this stuff. Got my eGo-t kit today and currently charging a battery. The batteries come in with the "off" position. My question is: Do I do the initial charge with the battery in the "off" position, or should I turn it to the "on" position to charge.... or does it make a difference?
