Do have the mV or whatever threshold set correctly?

The higher the rating the more sensitive the charger will be to false peak.

What charger are you using?

Mine recommends 8mV for NiMH and 6mV for NiCD, my batteries will blow up before they false peak, j/k.

Try charging with a different charger. Its possible your charger is faulty.

New packs can false peak. Especially on chargers that dont offer much customization.

Just keep charging it till it gets warm. It should stop false peaking after a couple or restarts then most likely the next peak will be the actual one.
