Could do better
on 13 October 2016
It may be that batteries vary but I have found that it is best to recharge them before use rather than doing so before putting them away after use.
In fact I recharge them after use as well. Used in my garden blower they run down quite quickly. I suppose that one must bear in mind that Ni-cd batteries are being replaced with Ni-mh and lithium ones which hold their charge and are more efficient. (And, in the case of lithium ones quite a bit more expensive!)
