Default New batteries

Im getting my first soldering iron and currently have some average mismatch battery packs, a 1500nicd, 1900nicd and 3000nimh. I was told to get new cells but Im worried Ill damage them either when soldering or when charging as this charger is pulse with a 0.2mv cutoff so this discourages me. Should I wait and get a better charger or get better cells?

Default RE: New batteries

Regarding the soldering question. You won't ruin them if you apply the heat for just a short amount of time. Also be sure to use a higher watt iron to do batteries. I guess something at or above 50 watts. Experiment on some old battery before you do the good ones. Practice makes perfect.
