Makita refers to their battery chargers as:
Makita blah-blah "Quick Charger"
having switched to 12v tools w/ NiMh 2.6Ahr batteries I find nothing
quick about their preformance. It seems to take FOREVER to get a 12v
battery fully charged.
If I'm using more than one tool (by myself or with a helper) it's
pretty easy to get ahead of a pair of chargers.
I've been considering the
DC1439 fast charger
but I've found conflicting info on the web about charging times
ads say "as fast as 10 minutes"
but don't give times as a function of battery voltage and capacity
Average charge time is 15 minutes per battery
anyone have any experience with this unit charging 12v NiMh?
Is it worth the money? ~$100
