Typically, a 4 bay charger will let you set charging current individually for each slot. So if you set it to 2A, it’ll be 2A for that slot.

1000 mA = 1A.

1C is charging current relative to battery capacity. For example, if you have a battery with 2400 mAh capacity, then charging it at 1C means charging it at 2.4A. And charging it at 0.5C would mean 1.2A.

Thanks for the reply!

@teacher Is a year after the manufacture date for a Eneloop someting/nothing?

If you have a 4 bay charger do you set it at 2 amp so you can get .50 in each bay? What does 1000ma mean? In post 116 you said 1C threshold what does that mean? Smile

@ Venom …. What Pete said above. Smile

You been slacking on your homework?? Wink We covered C-rate back in post #6…

I know! All fun and games. j/k

With cc17 charger can you charge 2 AA and 2 AAA at the same time or do you have to charge all AAA/ AA at the same time? Can you recharge them anywhere in the house like kitchen or do you have to go somewhere more suited? Do you have to keep putting your hand on them while charging to check for heat? My guess they should stay cooler than my Milwaukee M18 battery pack. When the Eneloop come freshly off the charger are they 1.2v or are they higher? I read online people are taking them off the charger at 1.4/1.5v, not sure what are the max charging volts to be safe.

On the battery it says AA BK-3MCCA 1900 Mah HR6 and AAA BK-4MCCA 750Mah HR03. I can’t read the imprint on the battery. My sister read the date 16 04 but not sure if it right

@Venom ………….. Just put the batteries in, plug the charger in (indoors preferrably), and it does the rest. When that charger quits charging they are done.

Oh yeah, when they are fully charged they will be above 1.2V

As long as they are Eneloops and made in Japan your good to go as far as I can tell. Thumbs Up
That is the same Pack you had been talking about getting isn’t it??

If you go HERE & RIGHT HERE you can learn all you’ll ever want to know about Eneloops. Smile

Yes it’s the same pack I been talking about.

The first link I found it doing a Google search after I last posted. The second link I think it has some good info on Eneloops and it answer some of the question I had. One answer I couldn’t find if you can charge 2 AA and 2AAA at the same time in the cc17.

I think the next thing I’m going to get is Xtar SV2 first (easier to get) then Lii500 and more Eneloop. Can you test the accuracy of a DMM with the SV2 or do you need the Lii500? Do you know what’s a good battery storage case/container that keep the batteries seperated?

  • OK… same pack.
  • Questions about AA & AAA charging are on Page 1 of your instructions. … Fig. 4 ….. look it up to remember it. Wink
  • Not sure about the SV2.
  • All kinds of good storage options. Do a search…. if you can’t find something suitable let us know. Smile

For storage I was looking at ammo boxes but the AAA Eneloop will fit in the slots but when upside down there all over the place. What are some of your idea/opinion on storage box.

Beats me my friend. ??

Order it from where I suggested. If you had done that instead of second guessing yourself…. you would already have it. Smile

Gearbest has it in their US warehouse sometimes. That’s how I bought mine.

The place where I found it was on Amazon and after I read it again it’s for EU plug.

I was going to ask about Gearbest in the U.S. if it was the same company. I once order a packagr from outside the U.S. and they said it got delivered and it never did so I got beat on that deal so when it comes to ordering outside the U.S. I sometimes have second thought on it.

Do you know the website for Gearbest U.S.?

Gearbest only has one website, but they have multiple warehouses. If a product is available at their US warehouse, it’ll show you that on each product page when you click on the Shipping Cost / shipping options link. They only offer a limited number of some of the most popular items in that warehouse.

@ teacher, Is the Innova 3320 accurate? Do you have to calibrate it? How do you calibrate a any DMM?
1. Yep the Innove 3320 seems fairly accurate.
2. You have to calibrate it only if it needs it.
This question was asked the other day about the accuracy of the Innova 3320 DMM.
Well I though some of you might find the following interesting.

A BLF friend from the United Kingdom sent me a brand spanking new VC99 DMM and a VRM (Voltage Reference Module). So I decided to test it all out as well as the accuracy of my Innova 3320.

The VRM is programmable to test for 10.0V, 7.5V, 5.0V, & 2.5V… DC of course.

Now please remember, while the VC99 & VRM were brand new; the INNOVA is at least 5 or 6 years old, probably a lot more… and has been riding around in my truck or car for most of those years in a plastic container I got at Walmart. Thru heat of summer and cold of winter too……. in other words it has not had an easy lift. Smile

I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves…. no adjustments were made to either meter. It was not necessary.

Wow, that’s impressive.

I have an Etekcity/Uni-T one, and it reads a little low, but nothing major.

Yeah, I was pretty impressed myself. I figured the VC99 would be right on the money since it was new… and it was.

I had no Idea the Innova 3320 would be too though, after the treatment it has received… but it was.

And now all my other “cheapos” are right on the money too after I calibrated them. Thumbs Up

The VRM (Voltage Reference Module) is not expensive at all either…. BUT, well worth it’s money for sure.

They are all over ebay. I think mine was around $5. Smile

Yeah, I’ve got a couple of different voltage reference boards around. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to calibrate my DMM. I can only tell that it’s off a bit.

Yeah, I’ve got a couple of different voltage reference boards around. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to calibrate my DMM. I can only tell that it’s off a bit.
That’s to bad. I was lucky, even my cheapos had a way to calibrate them.

I had to re-calibrate one 3320 (I seem to have collected three of them thru the years…. Facepalm ) that I had apparently “un-calibrated” a few months ago to a source I though at the time was accurate. Facepalm

Oh well, live and learn. Glad my buddy sent me this VRM though……. Smile

Yes, very easy. Loosen 2 screws, remove the back, turn it on, hook up the leads, get your little screw driver and turn the “adjuster thing” very slowly till it reads correct.

I then turn it off & on again, recheck, & if all is still good. … put it back together.

That’s it. Smile

EDIT:“adjuster thing” = potentiometer

Wow, that’s impressive.

I have an Etekcity/Uni-T one, and it reads a little low, but nothing major.

Was it the Uni-t ut61e?
