How to keep your NiMH batteries in top shape!

Now is the perfect time to condition your NiMH batteries to make sure they function optimally in the upcoming recording season.

“Conditioning” is a process available on more sophisticated NiMH chargers that runs the batteries through a series of charge and recharge cycles in order to rejuvenate batteries to a state in which they can hold maximum charge.

The charger we sell on our website, the Maha MH-C808M charger, has this mode available. The Imedion line of low-self-discharge batteries that we sell are recommended to be conditioned after 10 normal charges, or on batteries that have been infrequently used. Please check the manufacturer’s recommendations if you are using another brand of battery.
