Nop...the 212 only does Nicads....it will do a good job of turning your Nimh to toast because the peak delta is set too high. The 213BX is the KO charger that does do Nimh.

Do they come off very warm-hot?

They won't lose punch when they are still new...but you are overcharging them.

No probs....you can use the BX212 to charge Nimh...but you have to watch the voltage very carefully close to the end of charge....once it drops and the pack is warm then stop the charge.....a real pain I know but otherwise it will overcharge.
