If I go quiet it is because my wife is desperately ill. They are talking DNR notice. I'll keep you all informed as I can. John

Not much hope left I'm afraid.Been summoned to the hospital today I'm dreading it.

Just reading your post mentioning your wife and DNR, I was told that last year about my mum, but now just read that you have lost your dear wife which has made me very sad , just remembering also my mum passed away so quickly.
I wish I could give you words of help, but life is so cruel at time, just try to remember all the good times that you have shared together, and I do believe you will meet again.

my warmest wishes for you John. Peter

As a newbie I dont know many of you, but i read all the blogs. I know how you must feel after losing my wife at a tender age of 38. My thought are with you.

Thanks luv you all. Btw doug did you ever reply to my query re voltage dropping. 15 v raw down to whatever needed for charging 7.4v (7.5/6 )???👍 What resistor would I need?

Hi John, Yes, two or three times actually.
I wanted to know the current the charger is rated for.
Should be on a label or embossed on the case somewhere.
Given that the calculation is easy.
V=I*R --> R=V/I
Given an initial charging voltage of approx 7.4 +10% = 8.14V and a charge current of 0.5A; V=15-8.14 --> 6.86
R=6.86/0.5 --> 13.72Ω so you need a 12 or 15Ω resistor.
P=I*V = 0.5*6.86 --> 3.43W.
So you need at least a 5W resistor.
A ceramic resistor if there is enough space.
Alles klar Herr Kommissar? 😉
Cheers, Doug 😎

Thanks Doug but can't see a current rating. Just volts in and out. I thought about 10 Ohms but your numbers are right . Is 5 amps a bit high. It's only for up to 4 Nimh AA cells after all or are you playing safe? Sorry I don't know how I missed previous answers. A similar one shows 400 Mah. |But thinking back I think the original was 7.2 v @w250 Mah. I only think though.

I live in Caerwys off A55 Junction 31.

I think you are Prestatyn or close by.

Is that right?

Regards.

Hi John, that's 0.5A (or 500mA) not 5A!
Do you mean 400mAH (which is battery capacity) or 400mA current?
If 400mA charge current then use the 15Ohm resistor.
If the battery capacity was 400mAh then using the C/10 rule, i.e. 40mA charge current you would need a 150Ohm resistor. And charge for about 12 hours.
For a 250mAh battery probably a 180 or 220Ohm resistor.
Any chance of a photo showing any and all markings on the 'Wart'?
Off to 'Bedfordshire now, I'll do some proper calcs tomorrow.
All the best, Doug 😎

Doug they don't say what Mah is for. just the figure alongside the voltage. A 1000 and a100 Ohm both too big so will try 10 to 20 range. thanks Doug 👍👍 I can't do pics. Not equipped.
