Hi Techies;

I have a bunch of AA batteries and a recharging gadget. They are Ni-MH 2200mAh rechargeable batteries, but as the years have elapsed they no longer take a full charge and poop-out on me.

Is there any way to 'pep-up' these batteries with the recharger? I've tried taking them out of the recharger after the light goes out and putting them right back in....the light goes on again for a while. Trying this over and over, to see if I can get them to accept a full charge....some seem to respond, but they still poop-out after just a little while....

Don't want to throw them away if they can be salvaged and made useful again. They are between two and four years old. Any suggestions??

Any rechargeable battery has a finite lifespan inasmuch as they can only be recharged so many times before they have to be thrown away. They are not 'everlasting'.

Oh, okay - that must explain it. I used 'em up.
