Default Competition Electronics Turbo Thirty

Just wondering, I've been looking one of these, and all the documentation that I can get my hands on says it's for Ni-Cad batteries. Can I get it and be able to charge NiMH batteries? Thanks for the help.

Yup. If you send it back to CEI, they'll pop an upgraded chip into it so it speaks NiMH. I think it's about $75, but I really don't know for sure. Give them a call-

Yes...you'll have to send it in for a new chip to be installed. I just got that done a couple of weeks ago. Their service is awesome!

Haaa...I was wondering for a long long time why my car was so slow compared to the other guys.

The chip that was inside my Thirty, had a limit charge of 3000mha. They added a new chip for it to charge up higher.

Mine charges for over 2300 seconds on 6 amps sometimes for 3300's, so i think its putting in the full capacity. Does the turbo 30 show mah readings?
