    do batteries "get back to full strength"?

    Talking about a remote control toy car:

    Don't use the remote because I already took out the car batteries. Flicking those switches consume batteries. You don't want to waste them. You don't want to have the car recharged and then have the remote run out of batteries.

    No, you don't charge the car. You charge the batteries of the car. I already took them out. If you want to play, I would have put the batteries back in the car. But the problem is, the batteries don't have enough charge left. It takes a while for the batteries to charge, for it to get back to full strength. So you have to wait.

    See how the screw sticks to the screwdriver? The screwdriver's magnetic, that's why. It attracts the screw because the screw's made of metal.

    I'd just say that rechargeable batteries "fully recharge".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Something would "run out of batteries" if all its batteries had fallen out or otherwise disappeared. You should write that the devices' batteries discharge, or that flicking the switches consumes battery power.

    Your unrelated sentences about the screwdriver are correct, but should have been posted in a separate thread.
