Important note: Due to the erratic charge behavior of NiMH and NiCad batteries when first placed on charge there is a delay of up to 15 minutes before an accurate charge termination can be read. In worst case a battery can be taken off the charger and reattached, and charged for 15 minutes before the "charged" light comes on again. In addition, new packs should be charged and discharged several times before they "settle in" to a predictable charging condition.
Twelve optional DC Plugs slip over the 5.5 x 2.1 mm connector if desired.

Hi, I just want to say thanks, I made an inquiry recently about a battery charger for my StanleyProto cordless lamp.I needed one and you recommended one that you thought would work. I just received the PST-3P10-N0508B and the barrel plug adapters. Excellent selection,works great and I am back in the game. Your site is very informative and the product does the job.
Thanks again. Regards, Joe E.
