I cant get these batteries to charge? I plug them in, the led turns on, in a few hours they turn off, as if there ready. I plug them in cd players, camers, mice, ect. They dont work?

Your device probably needs a higher voltage. Many recharagables don't give the full output. For example most 9V rechargables are only 7.2V. I suggest getting some higher quality batteries.

Like templaraPheonix said.. Most Ni-CD battery's are lower powered. AA & AAA are 1.2V and not 1.5V like store bought.

Standard Charge time on battery's is 4-8 hours. depending on the 1st charge will tell how long the battery will last. So if you didnt charge them all of the way they never will charge up to Full.

What type of rechargable batteries are they?  The 1.2V is kind of irrelevant, because most devices still work when standard alkaline batteries drop to that level anyway.

Some chargers have a NiCD/Ni-Mh switch on them, I know mine does.  If it does, make sure that it's set to correspond with the batteries that it needs to charge.

I suggest you look at what type of batteries you're charging, and set it to that.

 :wtf:
