Just need to know

But it is quite old and it dosent say nickel metal battery
So would it do the more modern nickel metal type or is it to old
thanks

I wouldn't risk it. Probably is Ni Cad only.

There is usually a switch to change from Ni-Cd to Ni-Mh as the charging rate is different.

So it would appear that yours is only suitable for Ni-Cd.

I have a newer one which states that it is suitable for both Ni-Cd and Ni-Mh.
So unless it states on the charger that it is suitable for Ni-Mh don't chance it.

Quote "Don't recharge NiMH's in an old NiCad charger
Newer chargers handle both NiMH's and NiCads. Older chargers handle only NiCads. If you have NiMH batteries, make sure your charger can handle them. Otherwise, you'll ruin your batteries (and maybe start a fire). If your charger isn't specifically labeled as handling NiMH batteries, then don't put NiMH batteries in it."

To save you calculating charging times on an unsuitable cherger go to 7Dayshop and buy yourself a V6000 for about £15.

that of course should read charger. Will charge 1,2,3 or 4 batteries AA or AAA. Just plug in and it will do the rest on any of the older or present capacities. Switches charger to trickle charge when it detects the correct charged voltage. Even has thermal protection. I use one regularly.
