Default Video showing heavy flour in AA batteries: any way for layman to test NiMH batteries?


"Amanda Riphnykhazova"

Now I have seen a report that for cordless phones, you should use special
low discharge batteries and that ordinary NiMH ones will just die if left
off the base

** Total ********.

There seem to be lots of sellers specifically targeting their sales towards
Panasonic cordless phones. I wonder if there is any difference or if "low
discharge" means anything (in practical terms)?

** None.

Cordless phones are normally left on constant charge.

Low discharge cells ( ie Eneloop) have advantage when the device is left
with no use or charge for months on end.

Like a digital camera or torch often is.
