    Say charging your battery from 20% how long does yours take to charge ?
    Have not timed mine but have noticed some charge quicker than others .
    Amount of usage on battery maybe ?

    Dirk, I think yes it can take more time If your battery light is just getting ready to drop from 2 lights to one left Compared to a battery that just dropped from 3 lights to 2. I have noticed that it seems to take a little longer.

    I got that but was just wondering on how quick they charge ! Have seen some on here say 45 minutes to get a full charge from a full discharge and it just don't take mine that long and have about 80 cycles on mine .
    20 to 30 minutes and mine are full .

    The only time I really checked one of mine was when I hit the 20 charges, run it down to 8% thingy. I then checked what it took to get back to full. It was 1-3/4 hours. Now when it comes to that micro slow charging the RE-700, that blasted thing can take forever.

    I really haven't timed them. I just check on them periodically to see where they are at.
