I got this idea from Doncharles and would like to thank him for it.

I changed his project simply by adding a second outlet and upgrading the one hour timer to a digital timer. This is so I can leave the chargers connected and program them to charge say two times a week for three hours and not over charge the batteries. You can pick when and how long for yours. It can be overridden by pushing the bottom of the timer. The timer was from HD.and cost about $30.00.

I like the override feature. Sometimes if you are working a lot with your recharable tools you can go through a couple of batteries.

Thanks to all but like I just improved it a bit from the original. I added the second outlet because of the size of the chargers with the large plug. The timer also has a battery back up in it.

RexMcKinnon: Very true, I liked that feature also.
