Why do New Batteries Need to Be "Formed"?

Most manufacturers of NiCd and NiMH battery cells skip the last and very important manufacturing step This step is called the "FORMING CHARGE" and completes the chemical processes within the battery. It takes 24 hours and cannot be rushed. That makes it expensive and ties up a lot of manufacturing capacity so it is usually skipped and left up to the consumer.
"FORMING" also assures that each cell in a pack starts off completely full so it can add the most to the battery cell �team effort�. Without "FORMING", a new NiCd or NiMH battery may only achieve 40% to 50% of it�s rated capacity initially, and may never reach it�s full potential.
Why fly like that?

The new Sirius Pro Former by Peak Electronics is specifically designed to properly FORM new NiCd and NiMH cells from 100 mAh to 5,500 mAh and is also great as an overnight slow charger.
Just attach a 12 volt supply, select your battery capacity and plug in your battery pack. After 24 hours, your new pack will be completely formed and ready for 3 to 5 fast charge cycles. It will then be capable of achieving all the performance the manufacturer intended, but didn�t take the time to build in.

Re: Peak Electronics Form Charger

Is it only for first-time forming new batteries or does it also work for everyday charging?

Thanks !

Re: Peak Electronics Form Charger

It allows you to form cahrge a battery up to 5000 mah, you could use it for regular charging but it would take a long time.
