How long should it take to charge my BT-1008 battery pack for the first time?
Generally, we recommend that you charge this battery overnight. The battery will come with a very small charge on it from the factory as part of the quality control process. But this small charge will not be enough to properly power your phone when you first intall it. That is why we recommend charging the battery for 8 hours or more the first time. This unusually long charging time is required because the storage capacity of NiMH batteries is at least twice as that of the same-sized NiCd batteries - but that is a small price to pay for the additional run-time you will enjoy because of the higher capacity (mAh rating) of this battery.
My previous cordless phone battery got really hot when it was charging. Is this normal?
No. A battery should not get hot to the touch when charging. It will warm up a bit as those cells are "exercised" by taking on the electrical charge and storing that energy in a chemical reaction. But if the temperature of your battery is going up too fast or too high, we recommend replaing it immediately. Extremely high temperatures are of course unsafe and could indicate a problem with one or more of the cells inside of that battery pack. It is not worth the risk of damaging your phone or other property to keep a battery that is getting too hot. These extreme temperature changes can cause battery leakage, rupture or even fire. So, it is better to dispose your battery safely and get a reliable Uniden BT-1008 Cordless Phone Battery replacement from a quality vendor like Batteries Direct.
How can I know the date of manufacture of a particular battery?
The manufacturing date of batteries will be mentioned as a four digit code on the face of the battery. The first two digits represent the year of manufacture, and last two digits represent the week of manufacture. For instance, if the four digit code is 1025, then the manufactured date would be the 25th week of the year 2010.
How often should I drain the battery completely?
NiMH batteries are less susceptible to memory effect. Draining the battery fully every x number of uses is not really required for the Nickle Metal Hydride family of rechargeable cordless telephone battery packs. Just use the phone like you normally would and put it back in the cradle to hold the handset or to charge the handset whenever it is running low. You do not need to stress out trying to manage the charge cycles on your cordless phone battery pack. We all have more important things to worry about.
What are the things that one should look for in the label of a cordless phone battery pack?
When buying a battery for your cordless phone, you can double check to make sure the voltage is correct and that one of the part numbers on the pack matches the part number you are looking to replace. In addition, just make sure that the form factor (shape and size) of the battery and connector are the same as the battery you are replacing.
