Default Update again

Charging my 1600 Sanyo Nimh for 14 hours got me a runtime of 91 mins...it slow down on the 85th min but the first 60 mins is okay....

TFR: I think any wall charger will do just keep it under 1 amp...5mah is best...

Default Charging

Hey guys, I don't know who started the wive's tail about charging AA's at low amps, but I can tell you that I bought a bunch of energizer NiMH 1600s and some other 1600's, and I charge them at 1 or 1.5 amps all the time. If you have a Millenium charger, set it on NiMH at 1 or 1.5 amps with no trickle charge. One thing- I know NiMH's aren't supposed to have a memory, but I have been charging mine at 1.5 ever since the first charge, so I can't say for sure what they would do if you charged them at a low amp then went to a higher amp charge, but I don't think it will hurt them.

That's spooky dude....

Not really sure, I haven't even thought of it. I need to look at the HPI optional rear ball diff to see what it consists of. Will it not work on the front?


Now, how the HELL did you know I was reading this thread? Did you install a trojan on my puter?!?!?!?
