I charge my hotshots @ 1.5 amps. I have had the same 2 igniters for two years and never had any problems charging like this.

Use nicad or nimh which ever the bat type is and then I charge my igniter at .5 to 1 amp. This charger will peak charge it and then trickle it when it is done. If you want to get reap fancy use the cycle mode for 1 to 2 cycles at 1.0 and discharge and same charge rate.
