Many contractors return to their shops after work to unload tools, and they place the batteries from their power tools in the charger overnight. When a charge takes an hour at most, I don’t like leaving the charger running longer than that, especially because there are times when I don’t go into my shop for days. I solved this problem by hard-wiring a one-hour Intermatic FF60MC spring-wound timer into my charger’s dedicated power outlet. This inexpensive timer also can be wired into a power extension cord to use in the field.
