tecnically it can do nimh batteries but, the recommended charging amperage for 3300s is 5A-6A, the Superbrain, while a very good charger, I have one myself, can only charge up to 4.5A.

ive also had the SUper brain (the purple one) b4 my pulsar... it worked great and only falsed peak if you set the peak threshold incorrectly... the heat issues was easily solved by putting in front of a fan, just a hassle for me to charge my 3300s at 4.5 (45-55 mins), thats just me though , im very lazy :/

I have a superbrain also,If I had to do it over I would save a little more money and get the integy 16x4pro,it has a higher amp setting,does not false peak..or over heat..It's a better charger,I use a integy 16x9,it's a good charger also but it's alot more money.The 16x4 goes for a little over $100 us.

The super brain is a good charger but if you were going to get something more expencive the pulsar is the one to get.

I loved my Superbrain for micro racing. Worked perfectly until I stuck the leads into 120VAC accidentally, WHOOPS! I wouldn't recommend it for stock racing since you will need the punch that 6 amps will provide for your car, for mod it is OK though, you could try it.
