PostSubject: Battery Question?   Sat Dec 05, 2015 12:14 am

So I was charging my batteries up for the Battleday, when I find out favourite 5000mAh battery won't charge.

My question, is there a way to revive the battery or is it a paper weight now? help

NimH?

I've had some of mine refuse to take a full charge even when I know they're dead... I've brought em back with a verryyy slow charge, say 0.5A for a 5000, decharge, 1.5A, repeat... I haven't had one completely refuse a charge yet.

Ya, it's a NiMH.

My charger's lowest setting is only 0.9A, but the light won't even come on for the battery.  
Would one of the Heng Long chargers work?

Yea that might give it a bit of a kick start, maybe for like 30 minutes or an hour most, then try it on a real charger.

Mine has a discharge/charge cycle for NiMH.

Thanks to Jordan, the battery seems to be brought back to live. thumbs up

I guess leaving a battery in tank left on for 2 months is not a good thing. Embarassed
