I have a disagreement with a fellow boater but I do not know enough to be sure he is wrong. I was using a battery
driven drill. It did not have enough juice to finish the last hole. I suggested putting it on the charge for 15 minutes and trying again. His comment that it needed to be fully charged before I could do any good.
In our discussion, I made the comparison to an electric
car. I gave the opinion that if a car would go 250 miles on a full charge that would take 24 hours to fully charge, it would go further in total if you did 4 six hour charges and driving between each charge. My theory is that charging
is faster while charging
a discharged battery
than getting the last 50% of the energy into the battery.
Anybody got any opinion other than we are crazy and beers may have been involved in the discussion?
