how we will come to know the batteries are fully charged
how we will come to know the batteries are fully charged in model no. CHCC-EU thype? if you can provide the manual, it will be more helpful for me............if we put it in for charging, the green lights will come and i kept in charging mode for more than 3 hours and still the green light is "ON" and i checked the device and it got hot due to the long time charging.....please guide me for this.....
The PDF file suggested by the Energizer staff is - NOT - the correct one for the Basic charger shown in the product image here. It's for the "Simple" (probably older model #); the correct one is: http://data.energizer.com/PDFs/chcc.pdf.
HOWEVER neither user manuals states that there is any automatic shutoff. For this "Basic" model, all it says is "Note: Remove batteries when charging time is complete. #...)." next a chart of batteries. In other words, there seems to be risk of over-charging.
It seems logical there would be an automatic shut-off but why is that NOT specified to the the consumer-user? One seems to have to go and buy an separate alarm/timer which is not cost effective.
There is also no mention that one has to charge at least 2 batteries at a time -- AND if one is more depleted than the other, how is one to know when both are fully charged?
I understand this the lowest or entry level charger but the lack of information or instructions causes people to return it and also give it bad reviews at Amazon, etc.
Unless I get some infromation here and/or when I call Energizer soon, I'll be returning mine to Home Depot soon.
