hiya everyone, i bought "4 AAA 1000MhA" Duracell rechargeable batteries five months ago, Thinking they was one of the market leader i thought they would last for at least two years, How very wrong was i...some five months later they have failed terribly in fact after the first week they started to struggle charging, my only asumption would be that they was not built to be used in such a way as pick up/put down multiple times a day?
So here i am in the same situation where i am in need of new batteries, Can anyone help me please? is there a AAA battery that use for Cordless phones??
Yeah the phones are Philips CD235 See Here
They are three years old but never been abused or damaged, the batteries that came with them i think was just 450MhA so i would of thought the 1000Mha ones would of been much better..??
The only problem you will normally have is if you have used NiCad instead of NiMh or vice versa as the charging characteristics are different. I have replaced batteries with higher rated ones and had no problem.
I usually leave mine off the base station occasionally until the batteries run right down, as especially with NiCad you can get the 'memory effect', and even though it isn't supposed to it can sometimes happen with NiMh ones.
The phone starts to beep quietly before the batteries are completely flat so that it reminds me to put it back on the charger.
I've got Uniross 700mAh in mine - if I let them go flat, the phone doesn't recharge them. When that happens, I have to recharge them using an external charger, then they work fine and the phone charger keeps them topped up.
Mine went flat when I turned the electric off while we were away. When we got back and I turned everything on again, the remote handset was dead. After buying 2 new batteries, I stuck them in the phone thinking it would charge them up. It didn't. They needed to be charged in an external charger, and that's all that was wrong with the original batteries.
I now remove the batteries when the electric is turned off, otherwise the remote handset keeps trying to contact the base-station until the batteries go flat.
