How long should I recharge the drill’s batteries


I have a Black & Decker EPC128 12V cordless drill. It has two batteries. Since the recharger has no light or indicator on it, I never surely understand whether the battery is partly/fully charged or overcharged. How long exactly should I recharge the batteries? The tool is something like this:

I have found the original instructions on this page.

After approx. 3 hours of charging, the battery will be sufficiently charged for use in regular applications. After approx. 8-10 hours of charging, the battery will be fully charged.

After a few lines, it says:

After normal use, a charging time of 3 hours will provide sufficient power for most applications. However, further charging for up to 6 hours could significantly increase the use time, depending on the battery and charging conditions.
