What does the memory effect actually mean?

Answer:

If you recharge a NiCd battery before it is completely discharged, crystals will arise on the electrodes of the battery. The more often you do this, the thicker the layer of crystals will become. The result is that the amount of available energy will become smaller. You can pep-up/excite/stimulate these batteries by discharging them several times by using an electronic discharge device. Rechargeable NiMH batteries do not have any problem with this so-called memory effect and can be recharged at any time.
