The dial on my charger only says the max for NiMH are 3 amps, and i've been reading that guys charge them at a higher rate. So if someone could clear this up for me, it would really help me out. Thanks guys
i had the same charger, and you can charge nicds at wahtever rate you want on it! i did 6.5 amps with my 3800's all the time! duratrax just made the supposed" 3 amp" maxx to keep rookies from blowing up packs, thats all.
hope it helps! and those higher capacity batteries work far better than 1700's.
