Default superbrain charger

Can the superbrain charger charge 6 cell sub-c packs?

Yes it can, but I wouldn't recommend it. From what I've seen it seems to be of low quality and tends to get really hot. I'd go with something from Integy if you're on a budget.

I disagree... I used two superbrain 959's for over a year as backup chargers for 6 cell Sanyo 3000HV NiMH packs. It's a great charger sor $39.99. It does 4.5A charges with up to 50mv cutoff.

The only thing I wouldn't recommend is charging more than two packs consecutively.

Not a heat problem. If the manufacture puts a statment that the charger can not charge more than two packs consecutivly then it's not really a "problem" more of a limitation.

That's like saying a Novak Explorer II melting when it runs a 7T double has a heat "problem" when it's not rated to do 7T.
