Default Swallow charger and 7.2V

Apologies if this is in the wrong thread but being the numpty that I am, I couldn't find one for it.
I have a "Swallow Advance" charger which I use for charging my 7.2V Battery, it drops out if I charge at more than 1.7 Amps, yet it is rated up to 5 Amps, is this a battery problem or maybe the wires that are carrying the charge to the Battery are too small.???

my bad, I'm running it off a 12V transformer so I can do it indoors as it is a cigerette lighter powered charger. The transformer is only rated to 1500mah therefore it drops pout when I ask too much of it.
