cheers! jsut looked up reverse charging on wikipedia:

Quote:
Reverse charging, which damages batteries, is when a rechargeable battery is recharged with its polarity reversed. Reverse charging can occur under a number of circumstances, the two most important being:
When a battery is incorrectly inserted into a charger.
When multiple batteries are used in series in a device. When one battery completely discharges ahead of the rest, the other batteries in series may force the discharged battery to discharge to below zero voltage.
I guess I should try and put some life back into it first! not doing such a bad job on its twin brother... charges up to 11.5 and rests at around 10... going to take a week to get it into a usable condition though!

I'll take battery 3 out for now!
