How To Charge And Discharge The Rechargeable Battery Correctly?
- Jul 28, 2018 -

The first charge of a newly purchased rechargeable battery (not including Li-ion batteries) is more important. Usually, the rechargeable battery will be set to zero power and empty load at the factory, so it needs to be charged before it can be used. In addition, the initial charging and discharging conditions directly affect the lifespan of the battery. The proper way of charging a battery is trying to fully charge it each time after depleted.

We must adhere to the principle of "emptying and filling" and strive to fully discharge the electric energy before each charge. The nickel-cadmium battery has "memory effect", that is, the battery "remembers" the current charge, and the next time it is recharged, it can only be charged to the capacity of the last memory. Therefore, if the battery is repetitively discharged to a certain percentage of its available capacity, the battery capacity will lose that percentage of capacity. 

Do not mix different types or brands of batteries. Even of the same size, batteries may differ greatly in technology used and design capacity. If they are used together, the battery that discharges faster may consume the electricity of another battery (or batteries).

Do not fast charge a battery frequently or charge it when a portion of electricity remains inside it.
