The saying “You can never have enough (fill in the blank)” applies to cordless drills. I often overcharged my cordless tool batteries when I forgot and left them overnight, sometimes even for more than a day, in their chargers. It’s high time I built a station with a timer switch so no overcharging would occur anymore.
Mine is made of scrap 1/2” plywood, built in an hour or two, and is meant to be hung on the wall near a power outlet. My design includes space for keeping the spare batteries (4 all together). You’ll also need a power bar if you have more than one charger to install; the power bar is mounted underneath.
I can now recharge any batteries without worrying about overcharging, which is not environmentally friendly.
