Any feedback would be appreciated, thanks
If you have old Nicds no one runs those anymore and you are right that your charger will more then likely not be able to handle the newer Nimh. The Nimh's are up to 4200 now and are somewhat touchy about care. You can't let them sit with a discharge and if you don't plan to run them for awhile, ie couple of weeks, you need to put charge back in them so they don't go bad. If you can find a company that still does Nicd's you may want to purchase those especially if you don't plan on racing and only want them for bashing.
