Quick question on battery chargers
« on: November 10, 2017, 11:41 AM »
I have two older battery chargers TRC3 that came with my drills T15 (still have) and T15 impact (no longer own).  The batteries I have are all Li-Ion:  BPS 15 Li, BPC 15, BPC 18 in 4.2 and 5.2 Ah. that I use for my drill, carvex, syslites
I also have plenty of the newer chargers TCL 3 for primary, backup and mobile use.

Question is:  Is there any reason to keep the older chargers (TRC3)?  Put another way, is there anything the newer chargers can't do given my battery lineup that would be a good reason to keep one of the older chargers?

No reason that I can think of.

Just sell them, get some money back. I sold one last year, €80.

No, there's no real reason to keep the old chargers unless you just happen to feel like it. You should be fine to pass them on.
