Anyone have any idea what the recovery mode on the pag charger does? I have the old style pro batteries and while bored on set the other day realized I have no idea what this thing actually does. Is it a good idea to do this every once ina while?

Hello Dave, are you Mr. Chameides? How long time. It´s nice to hear from you again.

I extract the following from my PAG MC-124 charger:

The Recovery Charge Program:

Batteries which have been over-discharged may be rejected by the charger
and indicated as faulty: batteries in this condition are unsuitable for fastcharging.
To overcome this the MC124 incorporates an ancillary Recovery
Charge program. The selector switch for this program is located on the
front panel.
After a period of one hour the MC124 automatically enters the fast-charge
program which will run until the battery is fully charged. If a battery is
severely faulty, and has not responded to treatment by the Recovery
Charge program, it will be indicated as faulty when the fast-charge
program is entered and will not be charged. Rejected batteries should be
further investigated, see Section 4.6.

Hope this helps :P
Kind regards

and Dave, in case you were thinking about sending your batt's over to my garage for a little R&R (aka the first-aid program on my Frezzi): would love to help out but alas, I've sold that charger and moved over to Anton Bauers, so I'm chocolate-bar-battery-friendly no more.
