The age old adage "If in doubt..." serves you well, as it is always best to aire on the side of caution, when many hundreds of the hard earned is at stake.

With batteries Voltage differences is more important than capacity difference. It's similar to you putting a flat battery in with a fully charged one.

Several people keep their battries in sets (I've even seen them colour coded with dots) I mix my ones up all the time and to date it's never been a problem.

I dare say one of the battery experts will have something to say, and I too will be taking note of "Best Practice"


We often repeat the mistakes we most enjoy...
