Lipo or Nimh?

For Nimh, use an equalizing tray to discharge the pack so that each cell reaches .9v/cell, then peak at 6.5 amps and run. When the car gets slow, put the battery back on the tray down to .9v/cell, let cool, then charge again. Cycling batteries only serves to decrease it's useful race life.

Lipo, you need to pray to the voodoo gods and bless with some bat blood and nat ass hair mixture, combined with an Indian rain dance... Actually, I will let those with Lipo's answer that question.

yeah, I'd say that 6.5 amps may be a little much for AAs. Just charge them and use them. You can probably charge at 1 - 1.2 amps. I don't know about your charger, though, sorry.

Hi, may I know that 1-1.2amps is too much for new battery? I hear that new battery need slow charge and with few cycle, correct me if I am wrong. Thanks.

here is what amps do lower amp numbers hold a charge for longer and higher amps will have a higher peak voltage but you might run into temp problems ussually batterys wont vent or relive internal pressure until 120 degrees but then the battery will never hold a charge as good as it did.
