Battery Chargers have a switch which says "Quick" "Slow". What is the difference between them?
My charger has another switch "3V" "6V". If I put four 1.5 V chargeable batteries in it, Shall I choose 3v or 6v?
Thanks

Quick = quick charge; charging the batteries with a higher current for a shorter time than "Slow", which would mean a slow charge.... low current and a long charge time. The quick charge often makes the batteries hot (which is bad) and the charging is sometimes a bit less efficient than a slow charge.

If you have 4 1.5 V cells, you need to use (4 X 1.5 = 6) the 6 V setting in all probability.
