I tried charing GP3300 pack #2 and I had worse results. The charger started to smoke 2 mins into the discharge stage. I unplugged the charger. I tried the charger again a bit later and now it is continuously in a slow charge state and will not respond to me pressing the start button.

In case the seller doesn't take the charger back, will Integy let me upgrade to a more expensive unit using a dead one? Or, how much will something like this cost to repair? Thanks...

Thanks for the help. Luckily, the seller is a good guy and he refunded all my money. Back to the search for a decent charger! After doing more research, I think I like the 16x3 Pro. I like that one mode where you can charge your NIMH packs with 800mah and ready it for storage.

In my search for a charger, I noticed another difference between the 16x3v2.5 Pro and the 16x4 Pro. The 16x3 has pulse charging and the 16x4 has linear charging. What's the difference between the two methods of charging? Thanks...

EDIT: I searched the forums and I guess linear is supposed to be better for NIMH packs. So why would Integy use pulse charging in some of their models? Is there more than one method of pulse charging? Is pulse charging in anyway "harmful" to nimh packs or is the only downside that it has less punch? Does pulse charging have any advantage?

I hate to bring such an old thread back from the dead but has anybody charged a battery higher than 3000mah on the 16x3 pro? Is it safe?
