T2+ and Rechargeable Batteries


I noticed something odd when using NiMH batteries on the T2+. Even though the batteries are fully charged the T2 screen doesn’t show full battery strength; only 3 bars. Put them in the f75 and displays full strength. Anyone else have this issue?

Not odd at all to get three bars on fully charged nimh as they are a nominal 1.2 volt/cell vs 1.5 for alkalines.
I cant explain why the f75 shows full though, might guess its just how the f75 meter is calibrated.


Well-known member
My T2 often shows only 3 bars but two of them last a long time. The last one, not so much. I use Eneloops and they last as long as alkalines. I'm pretty sure Flydo is right on the meter calibration.

I've used the rechargeable batteries and it's just like Flydo said they don't put out the 1.5V power that an alkaline battery does. Does this effect the machines performance? I don't know but I quit using the rechargeable batteries.
