    Charging battery question!

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for all your help so far, I'm learning so fast but still a noob!

    My Vision spinner 1300 mAh came in the mail today, loving the crap out of it. I hear it takes like 6 hours to charge, so is it safe to charge overnight on my ego-t charger? I don't want it to explode or anything. I read in another post that you shouldn't leave a charger unattended, so am wondering what you would suggest.

    Is it cool to charge while I sleep or leave the house?

    Noobily yours,

    Shpondra.

    I made the suggestion in another thread, but a timer might be an idea. Set it for three hours and see where that gets you. Dont think the spinner will take six hours on an ego charger. Just set it up on a small plate if you are realy worried.

    I have given a fireproof bag some though. Its maybe the go for ego batteries, but because of the restricted airflow there is very little ambient cooling. I charge lots of 18650's etc and I know the charges get warm. I think at the end of the day, dont charge unattended, but if not practical, use a bag or a timer, whatever you are comfortable with. At least the timer will cut the current and not keep pumping the battery should the regulation fail.

    I have my 18650 type chargers placed in a biscuit tin ( holes in end for leads and holes in lid for vents ) has a tight lid ..When I first set it up checked regularly for heat from batteries but seems to be great...I leave them charging overnight as I think the tin will stop any damage..(hope) but I would not leave an ego type charger on overnight...

    OK thanks heaps. I won't charge it overnight. I'll charge for 2-3 hours in the morning. Hopefully the Spinner lasts me all day on that charge, I love the extra oomph of it compared to my starter egos!

    All houses in WA must have circuit breakers installed at the meter box. RCD's will cut the power if there is any faulty appliances causing problems, as well as faulty powerboards, or even wall sockets. I had a bog standard battery charger plugged in, with 4 AA batteries in it, every time I turned it on at the wall switch it tripped the power off. I had a good look at the batteries, and one appeared to be damaged, so I took it out and replaced it with another one, and charger worked as it should. So I'm wondering if my ego batteries were faulty, would they do the same, and trip the power off?
