WOW, that news to me but thanks and I'll take a look at the manual when I get my charger back with the new firmware to read up on this.

This is what I though. I'll check out the instructions on the new H31 firmware and see what they state. This Power Flex goes against everything I know when it comes to charging those NIMH batts

Oh, & to clarify something about my overcharging incidents, I did notice that ProMatch(whom I bought those packs from) did mention that in their early life, a charger MIGHT miss the peak & try to overcharge a pack(applies to most any charger, not just a Tekin BC112 series), & to keep an eye on them for awhile(which you can't always do, of course, that's why I toasted one & got close to killing another)....
Promatch have some very good batteries.
