My friend told me that NiMH batteries are more sensitive to overcharging. In what way can I prevent my Sony BT-1008 Cordless Phone Battery from overcharging?
Your friend is absolutely right, NiMH batteries are extremely sensitive to overcharging. But, yes! There are ways to prevent your NiMH batteries from overcharging. One way is to discharge your NiMH battery until it drains out completely and then charge it using a timer. This method is advantageous in two ways, one it avoids overcharging and the other it prevents overdischarging. Another recommended way to avoid overcharging is to use a smart charger that automatically switches to a low trickle current when it feels that the batteries are fully charged. Follow any of these two steps and save your Sony BT-1008 Cordless Phone Battery from overcharging!
Why should I go for NiMH batteries when I can get NiCd batteries for a much cheaper price?
Though the NiCd batteries are economical when compared to the NiMH batteries, NiMH batteries have some added advantages. One advantage with NiMH batteries is that they are more energy efficient and have 30-40% more capacity when compared to NiCd batteries. Also, NiMH batteries require fewer cycles of recharging. So, it is certainly worth investing your money in this Sony cordless phone battery.
I have purchased a brand new Sony BT-1008 Replacement Battery for my cordless phone. Is there a battery charging procedure that I should follow?
Of course yes! You need to follow certain battery charging procedures to maximize its performance. Charge your new Sony BT-1008 Replacement Battery at lease for 24 before using it. After this prolonged charging, you can start charging them normally. Although NiMH batteries are less prone to memory effect, it’s still better to drain them completely before charging them.
My dad has the habit of storing the battery in a refrigerator. Do you think it’s a good idea to do that?
Hmmm... Not really. We understandy why your dad may think that is a good ideal. A cool dark place is the best place to store batteries. But there is WAY TO MUCH MOISTURE in refrigerators. That moisture ends up rusting and corroding the metal contacts of the battery and allow for moisture to get into the battery pack. So, in general, storing batteries in a refrigerator is actually a bad idea. The best place to store rechargeable cordless phone batteries is in a cool dry drawer. If you are planning to use a previously or currently refrigerated battery in your cordless phone,don’t forget to let it warm up to room temperature (naturally - don't apply heat) before placing it in your phone.
I see the picture of your Sony BT-1008 Cordless Phone Battery upgrade. But it is a different color than the one in my phone right now...
Don't worry that is completely normal. We have found that that plastic shrink wrap coating around the batteries changes in color from time to time. The color has no bearing on the compatability of the battery pack. what IS important is the voltage, the exaxct size of the battery (form factor) and the correct connector. We absolutely guarantee that this is the right battery for your Sony BT-1008 battery pack.
