Anyone know anything about NiCad batteries in power tools? I'm thinking about buying a timer to switch on the powerpoint to charge a couple of NiCad batts (cordless drill and electric blower). Just wondering if I should charge once a week for 2 hours or leave it longer then charge for longer. I really don't use the cordless drill much at all, could go over 8 months without use. But hate it when I want to use it and there's no charge! Some questions... Do NiCad batts hold charge for long? Do NiCad batts get damaged if charged regularly? Do NiCad batts have cut off if overcharged?
